    Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.

    Returned. Needed the bigger zoom and better low light features of the AX 53. Steady shot feature was so so.

    Great camera

    I'm not a video expert but I'm really impressed with how sharp the images are coming from t his camera. It also does great in low light. I filmed my kids ice show (sort of like being at a concert) and this camera was way better then a 1080p camera I tried last year. I love the video that comes out of this camera (1080 & 4k) but was not ready for the 50-60gb files that come out of it after a little more then a hr of filming. Adobe premier elements 12 brought the video in with no problems but then required an hr or more to render for editing on my 2014 27in iMac. I have yet to process the entire file but it takes about 15min to process a 2 min clip for Facebook with the 4k file. Love the video quality but not sure I'm ready to fork out for the extra costs that come with 4k (better computer, bigger cards, larger nas drives, etc).

    Bottom Line: Exceptional Image Quality & Sound

    Posted .

    A lot of the menu isn't straightforward - but there is youtube for that, to help you get going. I would recommend two videos: Sony AX100 4K Camcorder Review and Sony AX100 Exposure Tools and Exposure Tips for no nonsense how to's on this camera (not my videos and I don't know him). Why 4 stars? Well, the uploading to computer isn't the latest generation and should have been - kind of slow - you'll have to wait for it. Whatever shortfalls are more than made up for the image. Simply superb, as is sound quality. You get one or the other with other products - but not both in this price range.

    Great Prosumer Camera

    Posted .

    This is my second round of Prosumer camcorders, I bought 2 of these. The first ones I had were the Samsung SC-HMX20C. The Sony FDR-AX100 is an outstanding 4K camera for the money. The picture has plenty of pixels to work with in post. The overall video quality is superb. The low light compensation is great. The ND filters cut down on a lot of bright sunlight during daylight shooting. Once you get use to the menu, you can navigate through it well.

    Good 4k camera with excellent picture quality and features. Menu on touch screen could be set up better. A bit more magnification would have been nice. Note the remote control 835 says it works with the AX100, it doesn't.

    Needed a camcorder with a great viewfinder due to lots of outdoor shooting in strong sunlight. Very clear using the color viewfinder. Very much looking forward to using it more and experimenting with the many features.

    Sony FDRAX100 - An excellent 4K camera

    |
    Posted .

    I have purchased a continuous series of Sony digital cameras, starting with the first camera to record on floppy disks, through the model that recorded on mini-CDs, and then the HD handycams. Within the past two years I have purchased both the HDRCX900 and the FDRAX100. I love all of my cameras. All are still functioning well, although I now only use the CX900 and the AX100. An interesting thing about all of the Sony cameras I have had so far is that, even when they are dropped multiple times (sometimes on cement), they still work without any problems. The Sony AX100 allows you to record HD, XAVCHD or 4K videos. I have recorded in all formats, and the quality is exceptional in each one. Once again, I am very pleased with Sony for creating such high quality cameras at reasonably affordable prices.

    High quality camera, easy to use

    We are using it to record the building of our new house. Although it has 4K recording features, we are using the HD mode because we haven't yet purchased a 4K TV. Maybe we will buy one when the house is built. Camera has all the features an occasional user would want. Have a Canon GL2 purchased in 2002 for which I paid about $3K when that was real money but the technology has passed it by.

    I'd been on the fence for years about buying a new video camera...I happened across one of these as an open-box item at a store, it was expensive but looked like a decent pick. I grilled one of the associates for almost an hour over it, and I finally sent them back to find me a new one. What did it was the 4K functionality, the onboard memory (card sold separately), and the fact that it had a mini plug mic input. Since I bought it, I've never regretted it--it's lightweight, easy to use, but captures excellent video and audio with the mic. If you don't already own a 4K camera, this one is expensive but it's worth the price.

    Super clear video's

    The 4K camera shoots VERY clear video and I love the fact that the AX100 has the manual ability. I also love the fact that it has the built in ND filters. I just wish the camera had the BOSS image stabilization which is better than the "active stabilization". I also don't know why Sony did not build time lapse and slow motion into this camera. 4 Star rating because of the lack of features that many lower priced camcorders have. I have a Cannon vixia R60 that has time lapse and slow motion but it is lower in pixels and FPS. It was a toss up between the AX100 and AX53 but I went with the AX100 mainly for the manual controls.

    This 4K prosumer camcorder holds up dispite age

    This model is several years old. But the amazing amount of manual control and features packed into the camera make it a real winner for professional looking footage. The only limitation is in the auto-focus speed which can be very slow based on content and lighting.

    Great Prosumer Camcorder...Needs B.O.S.S.

    |
    Posted .

    Needed to upgrade my camcorder and really researched what was out there. Having just bought a 4K TV and wanting to future-proof my videos, I narrowed the choices to just 4K camcorders and since I've owned Sony/Canon/Panasonic camera equipment in the past I focused on those brands. Sony is clearly leading the field in the Prosumer/Consumer 4K camcorders segment currently so I began shooting video and stills with the FDR-AX100 and the FDRAX33/B in a variety of situations. Most of my video is sports and family events both indoors and out. After all is said and done, while the AX100 is an outstanding camcorder for someone who wants a Prosumer 4K video camera for under $2k with great video capabilities in a variety of situations, I was really impressed with Sony's Balanced Optical Stabilization System and went with the FDRAX33/B. Wish I could have both but the incredibly stable FDXAX33 shots outweighed the better picture (slightly) and more features of the FDR-AX100.

    Stunning picture quality with a few gotchas

    |
    Posted .

    I purchased the Sony FDR-AX100 to shoot theatre productions for DVD and Blu-ray. I already use a variety of cameras including the Sony HDR-AX2000. The video quality of the AX100 when shooting in 4K is far and away better than any other camera I use when comparing the 4k video to HD video from the other cameras. Even on a normal HD TV or computer monitor, the difference is obvious. When editing using Sony Vegas Pro, I can zoom in to 1/4 of the screen image and still have excellent results. So why only 4 stars? When hand holding or doing fast horizontal panning there is a marked Stutter "wobble" or distortion of vertical lines. This is a result of the way the image is read from the sensor. Because the sensor is large and the image is read from top to bottom, vertical lines can be distorted in the final image as the camera moves horizontally. If you have a shaky hand, this can produce some very noticeable wavy pictures, even with the Active Stabilization enabled. You can see the same effect when using some other large sensor cameras. However, for tripod shots with not too much horizontal fast panning the camera is perfect. One thing to remember - you must use the super fast (94Mb/s) SD cards to record in 4K. The camera tests the cards as you insert them and if the card cannot support the high throughput, the camera will not record in 4k, but drops back to AVCHD HD format. I use 64Gb Sony SDXC-UHS-1 cards and get 2 hours recording time in 4K. Overall an excellent camera but be aware of the shutter wobble issue.

    This is a great lightweight camera that takes stunning video. It has great feature like being able make some manual adjustments. It is nice to be able to shoot in 4K but also record an mp4 at the same time. used the video in Imovie and have had not had any problems importing video. This is a great camera for a novice who wants a point and shoot camcorder that takes great video with enough features for more advanced shooters. The only negatives i have seen is a little more image shake when shooting in 4K and the auto focus is a little slow when shooting faster action. Overall a great camera.

    The AX100 is really a great camcorder has many professional features and is quite a light package. The camera produces stunning images with crisp detail. The built in audio recording is above average but I decided to purchase the hot shoe mount and I was able to add my XLR shotgun mic and zoom recorder for better audio production. The camera performs well in lowlight however I noticed a little noise which would be expected. I was shocked to find out that when monitoring video through a separate monitor you cannot record in 4K, the screen will go black. 1080i and 1080p records just fine. This was almost a deal breaker however I was able to make up for it by using the cameras built in wifi feature and connecting my smartphone to the built in network. The connection was flawless with no noticeable lag. I'm also able to link my smartphone to the monitor if I need a larger viewing surface. I have to deduct a start because of the 4K recording failure when viewing through a monitor, no internal storage, and no built in XLR component. All in all I am extremely satisfied with the Sony Ax100.

    This camera has great in camera auto. The 1" sensor makes for great video picture. The size is not too big and not too small. I bought two of them. Make sure you buy the right card that will be able to record 4k. I recommended this to a friend and he bought one.
