Continuing our exploration into 4K we have acquired a Sony FDR-AX100. This a prosumer grade camera from Sony with the notable feature of being, of course, 4K (specifically UltraHD). I will do an in depth review of it in the next week but my first impressions are favorable for a small unit at the sub-$2000 price point. It does have some pro-level features such as ND filters, manual focus and iris controls, and so on. Notably missing is the ability to connect balanced audio leaving one to rely on a breakout box like the Beachtek.
I shot a quick piece outside of the office and with YouTube’s new 4K renderings, I can actually show it to you. It absolutely blows my mind that I can deliver 4K to an end user for with less than a $2k total investment. Enjoy, more to come.
