terrific camcorder and camera

Boris, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I'm hugely impressed by fdr-ax100. This device is a marvel of technology and design. I love it so much that we will buy two more devices for our production studio. I tried Panasonic gh4 and was so disappointed by its poor image quality I had to return it. This Sony represents terrific value and for videography and doubles as very competent photography camera. I really like its controls layout and even more the final image quality.

  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound
  • Cons: Cable Connecters To Small, Little expensive

Produces great video

Geneo157, B&H Photo
21 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I have owned the camera since March and have produced some stunning videos. However I have a problem with the OLED EVF, its brightness is so low that it is unusable in bright sunshine. Two other EVF cameras I own have at least double the brightness. I also found the complaint on websites dedicated to this camera.
  • Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Large Clear LCD

It is falling behind, compare it with Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 camera!

F. C. Ho "TheBaldEagle", Amazon
15 July 2014
  • Summary: The upcoming Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 digital camera at the end of July of 2014 is going to blow away this camcorder. It is only around $900 and has 4K video capabilities and more. Please check the spec. for yourself!

Sony's Best Handycam Yet

Rick Bennette "Rick Bennette", Amazon
14 July 2014
  • Summary: OVERVIEW The Sony FDR-AX100/B is bigger than any other Handycam yet. It's big enough to look professional next to any consumer camcorder, but not so big that it draws unwanted attention when you want to shoot without drawing undue attention. Chances are, if you're reading this review, you are an advanced videographer or perhaps considering this model for a low budget film or video production. If so, this camcorder is up to either task.

  • Summary: The camera seems solid built, but when hand is in holding strap on camera, somewhat difficult to keep thumb placed on record button. Great pic.
  • Pros: Great camera for high definition
  • Cons: great pic. in 4K, when camera is still, but choppy when panning.

Commercial 4K quality for a fraction of the cost of REDs

zoolane, Amazon
11 July 2014
  • Summary: This is one of the best video products that Sony has come out with. I strongly believe that Sony could have charged double, but brought this camera to market for the purpose of putting more 4K content within the reach of consumers, with the ultimate goal of selling an even greater amount of 4K LED televisions. Because of this, the video quality is excellent. This Sony camera far outperforms the Panasonic AG-HMC150 3CCD that I had been using.

Does One Thing Beautifully...But...

J. Vincent Legg, Amazon
10 July 2014
  • Summary: Pros: Stunning 4k picture...when on a tripod. Cons: Handheld, or when tracking moving objects, like wildlife, image stabilization disappoints. As a relatively early adopter, I took this camera to Yellowstone, hoping to get some stunning 4k footage. I really wanted to love this 2 thousand dollar camera. But I soon realized--even the 3.5 inch monitor revealed it--that any time the camera was moving, the resulting picture was unacceptable unstable.
