Stunning 4K video

FDR-AX700 19/11/2017 by John_Boy22 (United Kingdom) Verified Purchaser Verified

I videoed a parade in 4K, hand-held with image stabilisation on active, auto focus set wide, AF drive speed on 5, AF depth and subject both set to 3, picture profile set to 1, face detection on. Impressive focus during panning, skin colour was better than with my Panasonic DMC-G7 with X Vario lens and, the audio was not overpowered by a loud peel of Cathedral bells. I've also used photo mode in a nature reserve where I needed a wide angle shot; although the jpeg was smaller than expected at 4MB, the 5024 x 2824 image had good definition. I will be trying the slow motion and remote control to assess my rowing action on a Concept 2. Why buy this expensive Camcorder when phones and DSLRs can take 4K videos? I was the subject of a video by production company NiceBiscuits using high end video equipment and later in the year, a short videoed interview by HealthUnlocked using a DSLR. The difference for my non-photogenic face was chalk and cheese. I will be using the Camcorder to shoot a video of the nature volunteer group that I work with, and will be used as part of grant applications.

Better grip, amazing autofocus, superb!

FDR-AX700 18/10/2017 by lacobo (USA)

Owning 7 FDR-AX100's I know all ins and outs of that cam. Now I bought an FDR-AX700 and am very pleased with it. The grip has improved tremendously and the autofocus is very good and fast (the only disadvantage of the AX100 is the slow autofocus after a theater-blackout). The menu is now the same as the pro-line (like the PXW-X70), witch is a good thing. I'm so pleased with the AX700 that I buy another one tomorrow.

Great video camera

FDR-AX700 06/10/2017 by Erick79 (USA)

Had a chance to try it. Feels very solid, and above all very ergonomic, just like it's predecessor. Loved the quality in low light.

Sad it doesn't add 4k 60p

FDR-AX700 19/09/2017 by Jrva82 (USA)

I bought and I'm totally satisfied with the fdr ax100, it's so sad that almost 3 years later Sony won't improve this line to 4K 60p, I'll stick to my old hardware
