A Review of the Sony FDR-AX100/B 4K Video Camera with 3.5-Inch LCD

 

Sony's FDR-AX100/B 4K video camcorder is one versatile little piece of technology and certainly one of Sony's more interesting consumer market 4K ultra HD video recorder devices. While not a marvel of miniaturization like some models, the AX100...

Excellent video quality ; Pro-level photo processing ; Versatile for photos and video ; EXMOR sensor mostly a powerful performer ; Great remote control features

Not the best low light performer ; Clumsy touchscreen controls ; Slightly imprecise control rings ; A bit heavy ; No waterproofing

All things considered, we highly recommend the Sony FDR-AX100 as a great prosumer camera that’s also very useful for field shooting in a professional setting. It has a few flaws but they’re more than made up for by its better characteristics.
