Amazing quality but beware the lens

  • Excerpt: I am amazed by the quality of this camera and I have shot some simply stunning stuff with it but BEWARE this camera does NOT have a par focal lens. What I mean by this is the following: if you zoom in on a subject, then manually focus to get it nice and sharp, it will go soft as you zoom out.
  • Pros: Great Picture Quality

Fantastic Ergonomics. Quite Noisy Even in Good Light. Buggy.

  • Summary: I love the ergonomics of this camera. I really wanted it to work out and I could have lived with the higher than expected level of noise (even with plenty of light). What I couldn't live with was how buggy it was.

4K is the Future

Videobill, B&H Photo
23 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I will use this camera primarily for travel and nature video. I may have some corporate applications as well. The AX1 captures stunning images. Video from the AX1 is easily edited on FCP X just like any 1080p video. I hope to sell stock video and UHD videos produced with the AX1.

2 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I was most concerned about being able to save the 4K files for future use, while still being able to use a 2K or Hi-Def file for current editing projects. It turns out that it's as simple as dragging the camera files from the XQD card on to any hard drive for archiving.
