It has a Fast Hybrid AF system with 273 focus points for precise tracking of subjects throughout the shooting frame, while Optical SteadyShot (Active mode) allows for shooting stable, beautiful images. The FDR-AX700 Camcorder is a perfect tool for making unforgettable videos!
Back-Illuminated Exmor CMOS Sensor
The Sony FDR-AX700 HDR Camcorder utilizes a large 14.2-megapixel (effective) 1.0-type back-illuminated stacked CMOS image sensor to deliver beautiful background bokeh defocus effects. The sensor’s superior sensitivity helps capture high-quality images with reduced noise, even varied light conditions. The sensor combined with the powerful BIONZ X image processing engine gives you stunning 4K HDR (HLG) capture and incredible slow motion recording at frame rate up to 960(NTSC)/1000(PAL).
Fast Hybrid Auto Focus System
The FDR-AX700 4K video camera uses a Hybrid AF system that combines Phase Detection AF and Contrast Detection AF for fast, precise focusing that never lets you miss a shot. With a powerful high-speed BIONZ X image processing engine and an advanced movie AF algorithm, this Sony FDR-AX700 camcorder can hold focus even on fast-moving subjects such as sports, pets or children at play. Its 273 focus points densely cover approximately 84% of the image area and features like 4K face detection and object tracking technology help you to easily follow your subject throughout the shooting frame.
Adjustable AF Tracking Depth Range
Subject tracking performance is optimized by combining high-speed readout and processing of AF data. A selectable AF tracking depth configuration from 1 to 5 helps you track subjects according to your expressive intentions, subject movement, and shooting conditions. The narrowest setting allows for tracking relatively little movement and the widest setting helps track relatively dynamic movement.
Capture Beautiful 4K Video
The camcorder lets you record movies in 4K (QFHD 3840 x 2160) resolution with full pixel readout without pixel binning, which is 1.7x more information than is required for 4K movie output ensuring that all the finest details are captured accurately. Plus, the XAVC S codec support helps record videos at high data rates of up to 100 Mbps at either 24p or 30p in 4K mode.
Capture the Cutting Edge of Reality
High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology represents a visual revolution, revealing a dramatically wider color and brightness range to match the high-resolution image quality of 4K. Combined together with Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) recording capability, the FDR-AX700 Camcorder 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.
3.5-Inch LCD Touch Panel
The 3.5-inch 1,555k dots Extra Fine LCD screen lets you monitor high-resolution images, while its touch panel feature allows you to select an autofocus point with ease. The screen reproduces moving pictures with subtle gradations of detail intact, allowing you to focus accurately on subjects in the shooting frame.
Built-In ND Filters
The Sony FDR-AX700 4K has built-in 1/4, 1/16 and 1/64 ND filters that adjust the light level entering the lens. This gives you the freedom to precisely control shutter speed and aperture for enhanced creativity. In conjunction with the camcorder’s large image sensor, these filters help create beautifully smooth bokeh background defocus effects without increasing shutter speed, even if you’re shooting outdoors in sunny conditions.
Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 12x Optical Zoom Lens
The FDR-AX700 4K HDR comes with a Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens using advanced aspherical (AA) and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements. It offers a wide focal length of 29mm, perfect for capturing landscapes! It also offers up to 12x optical and 24x Clear Image zooming for to get a closer view of your subject.
