The Sony AX100 Black Friday Deals 2021 is a prosumer camera with larger sensors than the other video cameras, and an upgrade to the firmware boosts the speed of data up to 100 Mbps. We have reviewed the camera and then compared it with its predecessor, the Canon XC10.
According to my, a one-millimeter sensor (16mm equivalent) camera is a great camera for shooting documentary style and when utilized in a creative manner you can imitate the look and feel of a bigger sensor camera quite quickly. I think that those who are videojournalists will be delighted by their “ease of use” and the convenience of the built-in lens to shooting with a run-and-gun.

After testing the upcoming Canon XC10 (review can be located in this article) I received many requests to try the possibility of a Sony comparable camera. I did test the Sony RX10 in the past but it’s not a Full HD model “only”, so I determined to search for a 4K (UHD) equivalent.
Next on my list was the Sony PXWX70. The camera is targeted at the professional market and comes with XLR audio and 4:2 2 video sampling in HD mode. In addition in the month of February 2015, a software license (a $550 firmware update paid for) is available to allow 4K recording of the camera.
The decision I made was to write a Sony AX100 review. It was also an excellent chance to test the brand new free XAVC S 4K update. (firmware 3.0 increasing the speed of data up from 60 to 100 Mbps). I believe this camera in conjunction with Sony’s XLRK2M could be an efficient combination.
Before getting into specs and ergonomics, or image quality, I think the most significant difference between these cameras lies in the “philosophy” behind them. For instance, while they are both cameras, the XC10 could be “just” another stand-alone product, Sony chose to introduce an “eco-system” solution.
The XLR-K2M audio component is compatible with its hot shoe, and it gives users XLR. Both cameras are geared towards videojournalists however, those who opt for Sony can add a professional audio accessory on the (nonpro) camera.
If you take a closer glance, the only benefit I could see with the XC10 was the capability to film using Canon’s C flat profile. Apart from that Canon’s faster bit rate recording could be beneficial for certain but it will require an expensive storage option. Sony has unveiled two new Handycam camcorders featuring a 1″ sensor for images at CES 2014.
The show-stopper of the year The FDR-AX100 can record four-channel Ultra HD at 30 frames per minute, and Full HD 1080p at up to 60 frames per second. The other camera is the HDR-CX900, which features a similar layout and features with the exception of the recording mode in 4K. Both cameras represent a major improvement for Sony’s consumer cameras.
The HDR-CX900 and FDR-AX100’s Exmor R CMOS sensors are among the biggest in any video camera that is aimed at the consumer. They measure 1.25″ diagonally, they’re just a bit bigger in comparison to Super 16mm film and are expected to provide comparable quality of depth.
The sensor is the same size that Sony’s famous stills camera called known as the DSC-RX100 and was famous for the quality of the video. These sensors are the only ones currently available among camcorders of this class and are the only prosumer-level interchangeable lens cameras that can boast the bigger sensor.
In conjunction with the 12-x Carl Zeiss Vario Sonnar T* lens, these cameras produce a 35mm equivalent of 29-348mm. The lens is also equipped with seven blades of iris and an aperture range of f/2.8-4.5 and a minimum focal distance of 0.4″ (1 centimeter). The camera is definitely targeting the consumer market The cameras both come with built-in ND filters available in four sizes (1/4 1/16, 1/16, 1/4, 1/16, and 1/64).
They have been among the first models to make use of Sony’s XAVC S recording format, which can record resolutions of up to 3840×2160 4K Ultra HD at 30p and 24p frames every second. Although only the FDR AX100 comes with the option of recording in 4K and both cameras can record videos with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at 60p and 24p frames per second.
If you shoot in the XAVC 4K mode the FDR-AX100 record 2 channels at 48kHz and the 16 bit MPEG-4 linear PCM sound. Other recording modes utilize one of Dolby Digital 2, or 5.1 channels audio format. Alongside video and audio cameras, they are capable of taking up to 20 megapixel JPEG photos. Compatible recording media include the Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo (Mark 2) Memory Stick XC Duo, and SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards.
