Product Description:

Sony FDR-AX700 4K Ultra HD Handycam

Designed for professional performance and ease of use, the FDR-AX700 captures every subject with the realism of 4K HDR (HLG) video, thanks to Fast Hybrid AF and other pro-class capabilities.


Record exactly what you see as you like it
• Capture life just as you see it in true-to-life 4K HDR (HLG) images with 1.0 – type stacked Exmor RS CMOS image sensor. The unrivalled performance of Fast Hybrid AF ensures that autofocus and AF tracking are exceptionally precise, responsive and reliable, so you’ll have every chance to take fantastic shots of fleeting action. With such professional-calibre capabilities so conveniently at your command, there are no limits to how far this Handycam can take your shooting ambitions.

Incomparable AF performance
• An extraordinarily accurate AF system with 273 phase-detection auto-focus points can tenaciously lock onto and track such fast subjects as moving trains and such unpredictable ones as nimble animals anywhere within the frame. With its powerful high-speed BIONZ X image processing engine and advanced new movie AF algorithm, the FDR-AX700 achieves focus with speed, precision, and flexibility unprecedented in the Handycam lineup.

Wide AF coverage
• With up to 273 phase-detection AF points densely covering approx. 84% of the image area, the stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor allows precise subject tracking throughout the shooting frame.

Fast AF response
• The Fast Hybrid AF system with the BIONZ X imaging engine efficiently processes data from the wide-area phase-detection AF sensor for high-speed focus on even fast-moving subjects.

Reliable subject tracking
• A combination of high-speed data readout and processing performance, plus a new AF algorithm designed especially for movie recording ensures precise, reliable rapid subject tracking.

Capture the cutting edge of reality
• High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology represents a visual revolution, revealing a dramatically wider colour and brightness range to match the high-resolution image quality of 4K. The FDR-AX700 makes taking these astonishing HDR images easy with Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) recording – no extra processing is required. Simply connect the camcorder to an HLG-compatible Sony TV via a USB cable to immediately enjoy.

Designed for advanced movie production
• Take command of movie production with a wide range of manual controls, ergonomic button and grip design, plus a large zoom seesaw lever for fluid handheld shooting. A high-resolution electronic viewfinder and LCD touch panel make it easy to preview and monitor shots in precise detail. Dual memory card slots are versatile and convenient for extended relay recording or simultaneous backup recording.

Versatile, professional-style functions
• A wide range of gamma and colour space customisation includes S-log2 and S-log3 profiles that professionals use for creative flexibility in post-production workflows. Also, with variable frame-rate recording at up to 960(NTSC)/1000(PAL)fps, you can see extraordinary detail in playback of slow-motion movies.
