Your vision... in stunning 4K detail

Capture 4K/30p video that far exceeds HD resolution

The new 4K camcorder realizes incredibly vivid, lifelike footage due to its ultra-powerful BIONZ X processor that employs area-specific noise reduction and detail reproduction technology. The blazingly fast image processor makes it possible to record 24P and 30P movies at the camera's full resolution and play them back with incredibly smooth, sharp motion. This new image processing technology achieves an even better balance of exceptional detail and advanced noise control, while its ability to record at 120p enables slow-motion playback at one-fifth the speed in a 24p environment in post-processing. Together with the camcorder's advanced Cinematone Gamma/Color function, a sumptuously warm, rich look to footage can be achieved. For even more polished results, Optical SteadyShot image stabilization keeps footage smooth and blur-free when shooting handheld with the compact camcorder.

Carl Zeiss® Vario-Sonnar T* lens with 12x optical zoom

Carl Zeiss® Vario-Sonnar T* lens with 12x optical zoom

The Handycam AX100 camcorder comes with a new ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* lens that is tuned for high resolution image description. Definition is finespun right into the corner of the frame, thanks to the 11 group/17 element lens that incorporates AA (advanced aspherical) and ED lens elements. This 29mm wide-angle lens is ideal for capturing grand landscapes, and also covers a wide-range of image expression thanks to a maximum 12x optical zoom and 24x (HD)/18x(4K) Clear Image zoom. Working in harmony with the large 1.0-type sensor, the BIONZ X processor and ZEISS® lens with a seven-bladed aperture produces beautiful "bokeh" background defocus effects and still images similar to those achieved by professional video cameras.

XAVC-S, AVCHD and MP4 codecs for greater flexibility

The FDR-AX100 camcorder records 4K and HD movies in XAVC S, which uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 for video compression and linear PCM for audio compression, while saving files in a MP4 wrapper. For greater flexibility, Dual Video Recording simultaneously captures in XAVC S or AVCHD high quality movie clips for HDTV and Blu-ray disc burning, as well as MP4 HD video ideal for sharing on the internet. The ability to utilize all three formats makes this camcorder a versatile tool for creating content that can live in a number of different environments.

Take audio to the next level

The new addition of My Voice Cancelling takes audio to the next level by automatically reducing vocals from immediately behind the camera without affecting the subject's voice. As a result, unwanted vocal noise from the videographer is reduced so the subject's voice is clear and ensures movies shot on the AX100 camcorder sound just as good as they look.

Take control

The camcorder features a bright, high-contrast 0.39" type OLED Tru-Finder™ which reproduces rich color and deep blacks. A new optical design of the Electronic View Finder, using four dual-surface aspherical lenses, allows for a 31-degree wide angle view for crisp edge-to-edge visibility. The 3.5" (16:9) WhiteMagic™ LCD™ screen (921K) displays sharp, vivid images, so consumers can compose shots more easily and even change settings to best represent the scene.

Sony's AX100 camcorder gives filmmakers more control over shutter speed and aperture by offering a choice of selectable Clear, 1/4 filter, 1/16 filter or 1/64 Neutral Density (ND) filters to adjust light levels entering the lens. Together with its large image sensor, the built-in ND filters enables "bokeh" effects even in bright conditions without increasing shutter speed. An easily accessible lens ring provides fingertip control of focus or zoom. Film enthusiasts will also appreciate the side-mounted dial that can be assigned functions like gain or brightness, making it easy to control even when looking through the electronic viewfinder.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Wow'd Me Over cautious I always research as much as possible before purchasing anything. This video camera met all of my criteria and exceeded my expectations . Twice I have let independent film producers use this video camera when we were on film location scouting trips and they were very impressed with the size, weight, ease of use and clarity. A very wise purchase decision on my part. No regrets and I highly recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for the buck. This is a great piece of gear. Aperture, gain and shutter speed controls at your fingertips. Program AE makes it idiot-proof if you want to hand it to an assistant to use as an extra camera. Variable speed zoom lever, low lux setting makes for great performance in low light, touch screen is precise and f/2.8 seals the deal. WiFi control is a simple setup and allows record on/off, touch focus and zoom. With the optional XLR kit, this is a much better choice for run & gun than XA20. Two small gripes: 1. I searched through menu for 20 minutes for WiFi before I realized system calls it "Ctrl with Smartphone". 2. Closing the flip-out screen turns off the camera unless the eyepiece is pulled out. I would have preferred an on/off switch on the outside of the camera instead of a button under the flip out screen. But I'm so impressed with this camera I'm going to order it's non-4k cousin CX900.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm Very Disappointed in Sony I've had this camcorder in my hands for 4 days now. First off Sony didn't have the weight of this camcorder listed in their specifications when I first pre ordered the camera several weeks ago. It's way too large and heavy for my small hands. Second I was very disappointed in the image stabilization, I was hoping it would be at least as good as my PJ-650's, it's not, it's about on an equal with my old Panasonic. On active mode it bounces around quite a bit before it settles down. The image quality is wonderful, however they don't tell you that you can't edit 4k video with Play Memories Home. When you first start the camcorder it tells you to go to Sony.net/PM to download the software. After you shoot the video in 4k and can't edit it on PM. I contacted Sony online support and they told me that I have to buy Sony Vegas Pro 12. I like Vegas but it's rendering is too slow for the number of videos I turn out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST Hanycam Made So Far This camcorder is well beyond the needs of most users as it borders on the realm of a pro camera in a small body. Yes, for a home unit, it's large. For a Pro unit, it's small. For video, this thing outperforms any DSLR on the market, including the new 4K DSLRs from the competition, albeit by only a small margin compared to 4K DSLRs. Image quality is tack sharp from corner to corner with absolutely no loss of sharpness and no visible chromatic aberation anywhere in the image. The corners look as crisp as the center. There's also no moire effect when shooting intricate patterns. Details are simply stunning. Even the feathers of birds show every bit of detail in the ribbings. It has a 12x optical zoom, which is darn respectible for a one inch sensor. Digital zoom works flawlessly out to 24x with no visible digital distortion. Beyond 24x the artifacts become visible, and by 160x they make the image useless. The color is rich and lush, but not overly saturated, even in the automatic mode. Skin tones look film like in the correct light. Depth of field is way better than any three chip pro camcorder, but not so shallow that noses look out of focus when the eyes look clear. Everything seems well balanced in the full auto mode. The pro features really shine on this little gem. Every major function like focus, iris, white balance, shutter speed and gain has its own dedicated button on the camera body and is totally independent in its function. They retain their manual settings even when the camera is powered off and back on. Other pro features include video peaking and zebra stripes. XLR inputs are available through an optional adapter that sits in the hot shoe. The eyepiece is so crisp you'll swear you're looking through an optical lens and not at an electronic device. The flip out viewfinder is crisp as well. Low light shots are simply amazing with grain held to a minimum even at 33 dB video gain. At that setting, it sees things brighter than my eyes, and any grain simply is masked when viewing at normal distance from a TV. In good room lighting and obviously outdoors, grain is not even visible in the image. Digital artifacting is barely visible only if you sit too close the TV looking for it. Othewise, you won't see it. The 4K mode looks tack sharp even downsampled on a 2K monitor. The X-AVC 2K mode looks almost as good on a 2K monitor, but lacks that razor sharpness of downconverted 4K. It goes without saying on a 4K monitor, the image is simply breathtaking. Only reality is sharper, and that's only if you have 20-20 vision. Set this thing in Cinema Mode, 24 frames per second at 4K and you'll have an image that will look as crisp and rich in color as an iMax movie. In fact, iMax is 4K. Stills are also very good, approaching the quality level of a mid priced DSLR. 14 megapixel gives the most bang for the buck. The 20 meg setting interpolates more pixels with little added sharpness, so stick to 14. Batteries last a respective 2 hours or more for the small one, four hours for the medium and nearly seven hours for the largest. a 64 GIG card shoots over six hours at the highest AVCHD mode, and over two hours at the 4K mode. The native 4K files import easily into the Sony Vegas editor, even the older version 11. Vegas only outputs the finished project in 2K, however, unless there is some new plugin for that. A quad core machine is enough to handle the high data rate sufficiently to edit 4K on a PC. Bottom line - using this in the full auto mode will get you great video in all regards. Use of the manual controls by a capable user will yield incredible results usable in any feature documentary.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Proud owner Did a few test videos, results better than expected . I edit with Power Director 12. It was awesome to watch the video on a Sony 4K TV. Test pattern I use says 1800 lines resolution PPH. This reminded me of the HC-1 I bought in 2005, same wow factor! Good compromise in performance vs cost ratio.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First day with the FDR-AX100 So far so good, everything is a go, no problem of sd card. I got an ADATA Premier Pro sdxc 64gb (95 read/45 write). And it was recognized without problem.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent video I have owned the camera since March and have produced some stunning videos. However I have a problem with the OLED EVF, its brightness is so low that it is unusable in bright sunshine. Two other EVF cameras I own have at least double the brightness. I also found the complaint on websites dedicated to this camera. The video certainly rates 5 stars but for the EVF
