    Fantastic Camera

    I've been using two AX100s for years as part of my video business, using them to tape theatrical productions, recording interviews, performances rehearsals, etc., and found them reliable, with a slightly oversharp image and no way to modify the image besides the most basic, consumer level picture profiles. Yet they produced a really nice image and seemed bulletproof in their manner of just churning out the footage, job after job. The AX700 is the AX100 as I've very much wanted it to be for years. The autofocus is vastly improved over the AX100 - such a joy - the image and camera option menus are much more in line with a professional camera - the image itself seem to have more depth to it - I could go on and on. Very very satisfied.

    I am coming back to Sony from Canon video cameras. The AX700 takes excellent quality video up to 4K. But I do have some things to get used to. The zoom is somewhat quicker than the Canons. I like doing a very slow zoom in or zoom out and this is not as slow. The Sony seems to eat batteries when off and it has issues with non-Sony brand batteries. Buy Sony Batteries and leave them off the camera when not in use! There are lots of customized settings you can do in the menus. I also have to get used to a non-touchscreen focusing setup. It does have focus peaking which is a help. I would still recommend this camera because of the picture quality and there are still things that a camcorder does better than a DSLR.

    This camcorder is the bomb. It has all the features of a Pro camcorder and more manual settings then others. They did a great job with the focusing grid so no more hunting or out of focus videos. This unit locks on to a subject and keeps it there. This thing has so many, many options for a camcorder of its size. N.D. filters, yes 3 different N.D. settings and a big 62mm lens. Its like a fully loaded bake potato you just cant wait to get your hands on it. The 4K video is out of this world even if you watch it on a 1080 T.V. So if your looking to up grade your old disc camcorder, get one of these cause there going to be hard to keep in stock.

    I recently bought this camera for recording a variety of events from sports to daily activities. I haven't had it long enough to really take a lot of video in varying conditions. So far, the video seems to be very good. The colors are nicely saturated and sharp. The slow motion feature is nice, but only records short bursts. My only complaints are that the viewing screen seems flimsy and the optical zoom is limited to only 12x. All in all, I do like the camera so far.

    Dual SD cards is fantastic! One for me, one to give out. Faster auto focus, sharper detail. Only complaint is recording in high speed, you will have auto slow motion in playback for the file using Mac and I hate that. Wish I could just have the file with no auto slow motion. Those that have the AX53 know what I mean.

    We usually upgrade cameras every 8 years depending on features. Sony cameras have worked for us without fail over the years. Video and Audio quality is top notch this camera is perfect no longer have to get to school functions early to get front row seats the zoom lens is remarkable.
