Product Features in Detail

4K opens your eyes to a new era of excitement
The FDR-AX100 supports 4K (3840 x 2160), the superior-definition format that delivers about four times the resolution of Full HD. It lets you capture incredible detail and bring images to vibrant life.

29 mm wide-angle ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar® T* lens
ZEISS® lens is fine-tuned specifically for the 4K image standard. Ideal for capturing grand landscapes, it also provides up to 12x optical zoom and up to 24x Clear Image Zoom to allow wide-ranging image expression.Definition is even sharp in the corners of the frame, thanks to the 11 group/17 element lens that incorporates AA (advanced aspherical) and ED lens elements.

Exmor R® CMOS sensor delivers multifaceted Full HD support
The FDR-AX100 features a large Exmor R® CMOS sensor with a light-receiving area that is approximately 4.9 times larger than 1/2.88 type image sensor. This newly employed sensor enhances image clarity, reduces noise even when shooting in dark environments, and enables image expression that takes full advantage of background defocusing. No.1 image sensor manufacturer for digital cameras and video recorders.*Based on Sony research-April 2012 to March 2013 (50% market share

Advanced BIONZ X™ image processing engine for higher speed and peerless quality
The advanced BIONZ X™ image processing engine features higher technology than in the previous generation of BIONZ to achieve more faithful reproduction, more naturally vivid and lifelike image quality, and higher resolution capabilities. This Handycam® model is equipped with several new features that take advantage of the higher speed processing capabilities. These include By Pixel Super Resolution, Motion Shot Video, Optical SteadyShot and Dual Video Recording.

Support for longer recording time of 4K movies in XAVC S format
XAVC S is the format for recording 4K/HD movies, which was developed for consumer usage based on the professional XAVC 4K/HD format. It supports HD 50 Mbps so that consumers can record high-resolution movies even in a heavily movement shot.

Support for HD high bit-rate
XAVC S is the format for recording 4K/HD movies, which was developed for consumer usage based on the professional XAVC 4K/HD format. It supports HD 50 Mbps so that consumers can record high-resolution movies even in a heavily movement shot.The use of MP4 playback devices and software does not guarantee that data can be played back in all modes.

High-frame-rate shooting at 120p* and HD resolution
The FDR-AX100 supports high-frame-rate shooting at HD image quality (1280 x 720 pixels). Its ability to record at 120 p enables slow-motion playback at one-fifth the speed in a 24 p environment when post-processing is applied. This capability opens the door to various uses, such as checking the form of rapidly moving athletes. Only available when recording movies in the XAVC S format.

Easy TV viewing via single HDMI cable
4K movies recorded on the FDR-AX100 can be played on a 4K monitor or Full HD monitor* by simply connecting the camera via bundled HDMI cable. 4K monitors support up to 4K resolution at 30p. Requires 1920 x 1080 setting in HDMI output settings menu.

Lens Ring
The lens ring enables smooth, natural adjustment of focusing or zooming depending on which mode you select via convenient button.

Manual Dial
The manual dial on the side of the body allows swift and easy adjustment of the iris, gain (ISO) and shutter speed.

Built-in ND Filters
A choice of selectable Clear, 1/4 filter, 1/16 filter or 1/64 ND (Neutral Density) filters adjusts light levels entering the lens. This gives video-makers the freedom to precisely control shutter speed and aperture for greater creative possibilities. In conjunction with the camcorder’s large image sensor, it allows creation of beautifully smooth ‘bokeh’ background defocus effects without increasing shutter speed even if you’re shooting outdoors in sunny conditions.

Full HD playback on Full HD TV
You can also enjoy Super-sampled Full HD playback on your HD TV which automatically down-converts 4K footage to very high quality 2K (Full HD), using the enormous amounts of 4K data.

TRILUMINOS™ Color. A breathtaking way to relive your fondest memories.
The supports Sony’s “TRILUMINOS® Color,” allowing you to view photos and movies in rich, natural colors on any TV equipped with a “TRILUMINOS® Display.” The expanded color gamut lets you immerse yourself once again in those unforgettably colorful moments, from the complex shades in a shimmering blue sky to the natural tones of a rosy complexion.

Trimming playback of 4K movies on TVs
By touching the display panel users can trim the image and display only the section around the touched area as a Full HD movie.

Simultaneously record maximum-quality movies and ready-to-share MP4 movies
Record two movies at the same time ― one in the maximum-quality XAVC S or AVCHD format and another in the MP4 format. The XAVC S format is available in the FDR-AX100 and HDR-CX900. The FDR-AX100 can record 4K movies in the XAVC S format.

Simple wireless connectivity with smartphones and more
Connect wirelessly with your phone, tablet or TV Built-in Wi-Fi® and NFC lets you wirelessly transfer movie clips and photos from Handycam® to your smartphone or tablet at a single touch. To get started, just download the free PlayMemories Mobile app for your iOS or Android device. Touching Handycam® with your NFC-enabled mobile device also activates Smart Remote Control. Start and stop recording with your mobile — it’s ideal for nightscape shooting that you want to avoid blur caused by operation button pressing, group scenes or solo performances when you don’t want to run from the camcorder back into the scene once recording’s started. Wi-Fi® also allows wireless playback of content stored on Handycam® on your networked TV (DLNA renderer compatible TV and access point are required: not compatible with XAVC S format).

Picture Effect
Creativity comes easy with FDR-AX100 thanks to Picture Effect with seven total effects—such as Toy Camera, Soft high key, Pop Color, Posterization, Retro Photo, Partial Color, High contrast monochrome—which give you the means to transform everyday photos into impressive works of art. As you apply effects, results are shown in real-time on the LCD screen. There is some function like Face detection that cannot be used while using Picture effect.

Notes: Dolby Digital 5.1 ch and stereo 2 ch recording are supported in the AVCHD format. PCM recording is supported in the XAVC S format.

Accessories

My Voice Canceling
This convenient new feature significantly reduces the intensity of your voice as you shoot, while maintaining the volume of your subject’s voice and other sounds in your surroundings.
