Sony launches world’s smallest and lightest 4K camcorder with Dual Video Recording

Sony_AX100E_4K_camcorderSony’s newest 4K Handycam AX100E is ideal for people who want to capture and enjoy their special memories on their 4K BRAVIA TV in the highest possible resolution. Approx. 75% smaller and approx. 66% lighter than the FDR-AX1E for comfortable one-handed shooting, its small body is roomy enough to pack in the best of Sony technology. Sony’s newest 4K Handycam AX100E is the first 4K Handycam that features a large back-illuminated 1.0-type Exmor R CMOS sensor. Far larger than the sensor in normal consumer camcorders, this captures flawless 4K Ultra HD images (3840 x 2160 pixels) with four times the detail of Full HD while also allowing beautiful bokeh background blur effects.

The Sony Handycam AX100E uses a newly-developed ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T lens with 12x optical zoom that’s been fine-tuned for 4K shooting. Definition is finespun right into the corner of the frame, thanks to the 11 group/17 element lens that incorporates AA (advanced aspherical) and ED lens elements. In another 4K Handycam first, Dual Video Recording lets you simultaneously record high quality movie clips and ready-to-share MP4 files.
The 4K sensor is paired with Sony’s ultra-powerful BIONZ X processor that employs area-specific noise reduction and detail reproduction technology for incredibly vivid, lifelike footage that’s closer than ever to reality. Together with the camcorder’s advanced Cinematone Gamma/Colour function, progressive 25p recording gives a sumptuously warm, rich look to your footage. Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC lets you wirelessly transfer movie clips and photos from Handycam to your smartphone or tablet at a single touch. The new Sony FDR-AX100E 4K camcorder will be on sale in Europe from May 2014
