With Sony's FDR-AX1 you can tell your story in four times the resolution of Full HD with the 4K camera that's made for everyone. Shoot with the breathtaking quality of XAVC-S 4K/60p and capture professional audio with XLR mic inputs. Even take direct, manual control with zoom, focus and iris rings, plus 7 assignable buttons. The groundbreaking power of 4K is ready to capture your imagination — and it's only from Sony. Let the revolution begin!

This is Sony's first consumer 4K (Full HD 4x4x resolution, QFHD: 3840 x 2160) video camera2. Capture the finest details at incredibly high resolution, to produce vibrant andextremely realistic images. What's more, the blazingly fast image processor is the same one employed in professional Sony models, making it possible to record 60p movies at the camera's full resolution for incredibly smooth and sharp playback, with no loss in realism, even when panning the camera and shooting moving subjects.

The FDR-AX1 records 4K/HD movies in the XAVC-S format, which was developed for consumer usage based on the professional XAVC 4K/HD format. XAVC-S uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 Long GOP for video and linear PCM for audio compression, while saving files in an MP4 wrapper. The XAVC-S codec allows longer recording times within a given media capacity than XAVC, making 4K recording easier and more convenient.

Sony's 1/2.3" 8.3MP Exmor R® CMOS image sensor is essential to the stunning image quality that the FDR-AX1 achieves. Its back-illuminated structure featuring wiring layers on the back of a photodiode (light receiving element) dramatically boosts low-light sensitivity for shooting better, more lifelike images even in dim lighting. Sony's cutting-edge technology also makes the camera nimble at reading massive 4K data at 60 fps.

In addition to a high-performance internal microphone, the AX1 features two external XLR jacks for connecting external microphones that can also be used to record superior-quality balanced audio synchronized to the video. You can also mix audio from recordings made using the internal microphone and externally connected microphones, respectively. 

The G-Lens advances the Sony heritage of image processing innovation by redefining what an aspheric lens and special low-dispersion glass together can faithfully reproduce. Accordingly, the G-Lens is specially tuned to capture qualities of definition and color that put these groundbreaking Handycam® camcorders in a class of their own. In addition, the high-quality lens offers a broad zooming range from wide-angle to 20x optical zoom (31.5-630mm), enabling an amazing range of video expression.

The FDR-AX1 features three ND filters for adjusting the amount of light entering the image sensor from the lens. There are four filter settings: Clear, 1/4 filter, 1/16 filter and 1/64 filter. These filter settings give users the ability to adjust to light conditions, while maintaining desired shutter angle and aperture even on bright and sunny days. Six paint functions (white, offset white, gamma, detail, skin detail and matrix) can be combined and adjusted in the paint menu to create expressive movie styling and cinematic looks.

NOTES:

  • 1. The FDR-AX1 can only playback via HDMI in 4K toBRAVIA TV as of September 4, 2013.
  • 2. At time of announcement, September 4, 2013.
  • 3. The use of MP4 playback devices and software does not guarantee thatdata can be played back in all modes.
