The camera looks very nice. All black with silver highlights

Summary: The camera looks very nice. All black with silver highlights. However, when it arrived the AC adapter had a film of dust or lint on it and appeared old and slightly discolored in one or two areas. The same with the lens hood. It seemed slightly scratched or discolored on one or two areas.
Okay for Stationary Video, But Sluggish Auto-focus is a Big Problem

Summary: SUMMARY: Obviously, the big draw to this camcorder is the 4K resolution. This is the cheapest 4k camcorder that I've seen. If the FDR-AX100/B had even reasonably good auto-focus, this would be a four or five star camcorder.
Great camera with great optics, records astounding images. But has drawbacks.

Summary: This is a semi-professional 4K video camera. Under good lighting conditions the camera performs extremely good if setup correctly. AT A GLANCE: I have a mixed impression about it as the optical quality of the recorded video is astounding when set correctly, but it can be a bit cumbersome to operate...

Summary: 4K video with a large sensor, affordable prosumer quality with Sony reliability..What more can I say? When you are shopping for 4K cameras the sensor size is the single most important feature....do not kid yourself.
Excerpt: I purchased this camera in May 2014 and have used it a lot over the past 14 months. I got it primarily for the 120 frames per second high speed mode. I travel about 7 months of each year and this camera has gone everywhere with me. For high-speed video (slow motion playback) it is fantastic.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, High Speed Mode
Summary: This just went down in price a bit so it was time to stop watching it and time to buy it! So glad I did. I love this camera. It has a ton of manual controls available and it does a great job in full auto when you don't have time to mess around to get that shot.
