Sony FDR-AX100/B 4K Camcorder with 1 inch sensor

4K Gets Personal
Capture your vision in breathtaking 4K Ultra HD with the camcorder that fits in the palm of your hand. Sporting resolution thats four times clearer than HD, this changes everything. Footage is captured with true cinematic depth thanks to the 1" image sensor and video is recorded with total versatility in mind: XAVCS*, AVCHD and MP4. Put one in your hand and tell your story in 4K. *Class 10+ SDXC memory card is required for recording in XAVC S.

Capture 4k/30p Video That Far Exceeds HD Resolution
Capture the finest details in 4k (Full HD 4x resolution , QFHD: 3840 x 2160). This camcorder allows incredibly high resolution, to produce vibrant and extremely realistic images. Whats more, the blazingly fast image processor is the same one employed in professional Sony models, making it possible to record 30p movies at the cameras full resolution for incredibly smooth and sharp playback, with no loss in realism, even when panning the camera and shooting moving.

1" Exmor R® CMOS sensor w/ Direct Pixel Read Out
The Exmor R® CMOS sensor realizes astonishingly smooth, finely detailed images by reading out every pixels signal from the image sensor at accelerated speed. Larger sensors generally have to thin out part of the vertical pixels signal, however this model can process the full signal thanks to the combination of 1.0-inch sensor and BIONZ X processor.

Versatile shooting w/ XAVC S, AVCHD and MP4 codecs
The FDR-AX100 records HD movies in the XAVC S* format, which uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 for video compression and linear PCM for audio compression, while saving files in a MP42 wrapper. The highly compressed files allow extensive record times. The camcorder also records in AVCHD, ideal for quality video for HDTV and Blu-ray disc burning. Additionally, the camcorder can shoot MP4 HD video, which is ideal for sharing over the internet at up to 28Mbps. Having the ability to switch between all three of three formats makes this camcorder an ideal tool that is versatile for creating content to live in a number of different environments. *Class 10+ SDXC memory card is required for recording in XAVC S.

Zeiss® Vario Sonnar T* lens w/ 12x optical zoom
The FDR-AX100 comes equipped with a newly developed Zeiss® Vario-Sonnar T* lens that has cleared a series of tough performance tests. Not only is this 29mm wide-angle lens ideal for capturing grand landscapes, but it covers wide-ranging image expression thanks to maximum 12x optical zoom and 24x Clear Image zoom.

Multi-interface Accessory Shoe for System Accessories
Users can expand photographic and movie shooting possibilities by attaching optional accessories via the Multi Interface Shoe, including an electronic viewfinder, powerful external flash and stereo microphone. You can also connect with a compatible remote control via Multi Terminal.

BIONZ® X Processor Enables High Speed Recording at 120fps
The new BIONZ® X image processor enables the camcorder to create more naturally vivid and lifelike image quality, and higher resolution imagery. Notable features of BIONZ X technology include:
  • Detail reproduction technology optimally filters edges and textures differently depending on the scene.
  • Area specific noise reduction swiftly and efficiently analyzes the subject and reduces noise.
This new image processing technology achieves an even better balance of exceptional detail and advanced noise control. Its ability to record at 120p enables slow-motion playback at one-fifth the speed in a 24p environment in post-processing.
