Sony Announces AX100 compact 4K Handycam Camcorder

Sony has sent over a PR announcing its latest camcorder that has been unveiled at CES 2014. The camcorder is called the AX100 and it is Sony's first compact 4K Handycam capable of recording 4K content. Sony says that the AX100 is 74% smaller and 66% lighter than the recently announced FDR-AX1 camcorder.

The AX100 has a large 14.2MP back-illuminated 1.0-type Exmor R CMOS sensor. The sensor is able to capture high quality video at resolution of 3840 x 2160. The camera also allows the user to take advantage of bokeh background defocusing effects in low light conditions.

“The innovative new AX100 4K camcorder is a natural extension of our popular ecosystem of 4K products,” said Patrick Huang, director of the camcorder business at Sony Electronics. “With unparalleled performance, it’s the perfect device for enthusiasts, hobbyists and even professionals looking for a more affordable, compact and high performance 4K video solution.”

The camera is capable of recording 4k resolution video in 24p or 30p formats thanks to the BIONZ X processor inside. The camera uses a ZEISS Vario-sonnar T lens and has 12x optical zoom. Video is recorded in AVCHD format for burning to a Blu-ray disc. Other features include an electronic viewfinder and full manual controls. The AX100 will ship in March for $1999.99.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
