A first look at the new Sony FDR-AX100 4K Handycam®. Christina from the Sony Digital Imaging Team sits down with Anthony to show off the latest edition to the Handycam family, the FDR-AX100.  Does it support XAVC-S, AVCHD and MP4 codecs? Yep. Does it record in 4K/30p video? You bet! Check out the video for all the features and specs.  CES is certainly shaping up to be a big show for Ultra HD equipment.  We will try to get our hands on one of these as soon as we can to test further.  At this price point and with this feature set, Sony is aggressively going after the 4k marketplace, both professional and consumer.  Sony’s F5 & F55 are both 4k capable.

What is also exciting to consider is the new codec. XAVC-S being implemented down the line as an update to the A7R should be possible, if Sony ever decides to do it.  No doubt, this new “super” codec would be dynamite for lowly 1080P.

Available to ship March, 2014 for $2,000 MSRP. PreOrder from B&H HERE!
