Sony FDR-AX700 4K HDR Handycam Camcorder

Sony FDR-AX700 4K HDR Handycam Camcorder

4K HDR (HLG)1 movie quality
High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology puts a visual revolution on display by revealing far wider ranges of color and brightness, fully realizing the exceptional quality of high-resolution 4K images. Moreover, with Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) recording capability, the FDR-AX700 makes it easy to immediately enjoy, without extra processing, HDR images, simply by connecting the camera to a HLG-compatible Sony TV via a USB cable.

XAVC S for high-bitrate recording
The XAVC S format is used for 4K and HD recording. High bitrates of up to 100 Mbps for 4K, and 50 Mbps for full-HD recording, ensure beautifully detailed movies with minimal compression noise. Since 100 Mbps recording is possible even at the highest rate of 120fps in Full HD, high-quality slow-motion sequences can be created during post-processing.

1.0-type Exmor RS CMOS sensor
A large 14.2-megapixel (effective) 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor delivers beautiful background bokeh defocus effects and superior sensitivity for capturing high-quality images with less noise, even under dark or bright conditions. This sensor integrates up to 273 phase-detection AF points that densely cover approx. 84% of the image area, for precise tracking of subjects throughout the shooting frame.

ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T lens
Custom ZEISS optics are fine-tuned to deliver the full beauty of 4K, with pin-sharp detail to every corner, thanks to the use of both advanced aspherical (AA) and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements. The 29 mm wide angle means grand landscapes can be captured, or you can get a closer view with up to 12x optical and 24x Clear Image zoom.

Enhanced BIONZ X image processing engine
The enhanced BIONZ X image processing engine is optimized for faster processing, to drive focusing speeds, stunning 4K HDR (HLG) capture, and incredible slow motion recording at up to 960(NTSC)/1000(PAL)fps.

Wide AF coverage
Up to 273 phase-detection AF points cover approx. 84% of the entire image area. This makes AF coverage widespread and dense enough to quickly capture subjects, such as fast-moving ones that are otherwise difficult to focus on.

Adjustable AF Tracking Depth Range
Select an AF tracking depth configuration within a range from “1” to “5” — from the narrowest setting for relatively little movement to the widest setting for relatively dynamic movement. This lets you take advantage of specific ways to track subjects according to your expressive intentions, subject movement, and shooting conditions.

Reliable subject tracking
Subject tracking performance is optimized by combining high-speed readout and processing of AF data, plus a new algorithm developed specially for movies. After focus is achieved, wide AF area coverage helps the camcorder to maintain and track focus on a moving subject with reliable tenacity and precision.

High-speed AF
The Fast Hybrid AF system enables data readout from a wide autofocus coverage area via the phase-detection AF sensor, while the enhanced BIONZ X image processor realizes high-speed data processing for accurate AF tracking on fast-moving subjects.

Optical SteadyShot (Active Mode)
Optical SteadyShot (Active mode) lets you shoot stable, beautiful images. 

AF area indication and adjustment
Easily keep track of your focus areas with phase-detection AF frames around in-focus subjects. Switching between focus points is seamless as well, with a simple touch on the screen to select a new focus target.

Adjustable AF Subject Switching Sensitivity
Five levels of AF Subject Switching Sensitivity are available. RESPONSIVE setting allows the camera to switch quickly among multiple subjects or focus points, while LOCKED ON setting favor a single subject.

High-precision OLED Tru-Finder
The 2359 dots OLED Tru-Finder reproduces images with extraordinary precision and accurate color. This high-contrast electronic viewfinder (EVF) lets you confidently, easily monitor composition, shooting and playback of footage even in bright sunlight.

Extra Fine LCD touch panel
The 3.5-type Extra Fine LCD screen lets you monitor high-resolution images of approximately 1,555k dots, so it's very convenient and comfortable on the eyes as it reproduces moving pictures with subtle gradations of detail intact, allowing you to focus accurately on subjects in the shooting frame. Moreover, its touch panel feature allows you to select an autofocus point with ease.

Professional menu operation
Adapted from Sony professional camcorders, access to desired menu selections is prompt and efficient, thanks to the menu’s shallow hierarchy design. Furthermore, the semi-transparent menu is overlaid on the live image, so you can conveniently change or check settings while monitoring the image.

Lens ring
The lens ring with increased depth enables easy, natural adjustment of either focusing or zooming, depending on which mode you select via a convenient switch.

Built-in ND filters
Choose among Clear, 1/4, 1/16 and 1/64 Neutral Density filters to adjust the light level entering the lens. This gives video makers the freedom to precisely control shutter speed and aperture for greater creative possibilities. In conjunction with the camcorder’s large image sensor, it allows creation of beautifully smooth bokeh background defocus effects without increasing shutter speed, even if you’re shooting outdoors in sunny conditions.

Manual dial
The manual dial and buttons on the side of the body allow swift, easy adjustment of IRIS (aperture), GAIN/ISO and shutter speed.

Dual slots
Dual slots for SD card and SD card/Memory Stick support both simultaneous and relay recording. Use Relay mode where long recording sessions need to span across both cards or, for critical recordings, the simultaneous recording mode provides a backup, for improved flexibility in client and production workflows.

Large zoom seesaw lever
The large zoom seesaw lever gives you complete control over your focal length and entire zoom range. Zoom as slowly, or quickly, as needed with smooth, precisely controlled results every time.

Grip shaped for easy holding
The grip is shaped to conform to various kinds of hands, so the camera is easy for anyone to hold. This makes handheld shooting especially steady, even on extended shoots under tough conditions.

LANC port
The built-in LANC port allows connection to a LANC-compatible accessory, so you can control the camcorder remotely with ease.

High-quality output via 4K HDMI
Send clean 4K video to external monitors and even off-board recorders, or simply enjoy your recordings on a TV, with the HDMI output. The full-size (Type-A) HDMI terminal reduces strain on the cable and minimizes damage or accidental disconnection.

Highly compatible Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe
The MI Shoe is compatible with various general-purpose accessories and further expands the camcorder’s shooting capabilities in a range of situations.

S-Gamut and S-Log shooting
S-Gamut and S-Log shooting gives you flexibility to make more expressive movies by performing color grading in post-production. S-Log3 and S-Log2 gamma provides wide dynamic range shooting (1300%) to minimize blown highlights and black crush.

Picture Profile
Tailor the look of your movies or make adjustments to meet the needs of post-production, with ten customizable Picture Profile settings. Full adjustments of gamma, gradation and color spaces can be saved for immediate recall and more efficient shot matching.

Time Code / User Bit
For professional workflows and multi-camera editing requirements, standard SMPTE Time Code and User Bit can be included with your recordings. With embedded Time Code, synchronizing multiple cameras for editing is incredibly simple, while custom eight-digit User Bit codes allow fast indexing and media management on larger projects.

Zebra function
Especially useful for shooting in S-log gamma settings, where it can be difficult to accurately judge exposure, zebra metering indicates areas of overexposure using clear stripes on the image preview. An adjustable level lets you accurately dial in the ideal exposure for everything from skin tones to sunlit landscapes.

Proxy recording
Speed up your editing and delivery with the option of onboard proxy recording. Lower-resolution proxy files are captured alongside full-resolution 4K video, for easy sharing and online collaboration, as well as more efficient editing on under-powered computers. When you’re ready, simply substitute the proxy files with the full-resolution ones to finalize your video.

Super Slow Motion and Slow & Quick Motion
Enjoy creative ways to express time’s passage. The Super Slow Motion and Slow & Quick Motion let you capture motion in the blink of an eye, at up to 960(NTSC)/1000(PAL)fps (40x super slow motion), or in compelling time-lapse sequences, captured at 1fps for playback at up to 60x natural speed.
