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.

Sony Handycam AX100 Camcorder Review

 

The first true consumer 4K camcorder sets a high bar.

When it was announced, the AX100 was a one-of-a-kind product. In a few ways, it still is. However, its most interesting new trick can be accomplished by less expensive, more flexible devices. Though, the other competitors are both first and foremost...

Sony FDR-AX100 review - Hands on with first consumer 4K camcorder

 

Eight million pixels at 30fps - 4K family videos are here

In the US the Sony FDR-AX100 will cost $2,000 (plus sales tax), and we’d expect UK consumers to be paying not far shy of that figure in sterling. That’s an awful lot of money, but if you want to shoot video footage today that will still stand up on a...

Sony FDR-AX100

 

4K video offers higher resolution than HD, and the Sony AX100 is among the first to deliver it in a 'standard' camcorder design. The unit has a 1-inch Exmor R sensor and delivers 14 MP and 20 MP still capture. It offers a variety of recording options,...

Great 4K performance at a reasonable price.

 

I've had my AX100 for a couple of months now and have thoroughly been enjoying recording with it. Resolution is amazing and low light, relatively noise free recording, is impressive as well. Be careful when panning and moving camcorder too quickly as...
