Enjoy life-like clarity in all the videos you record with this Sony FDR-AX700 4K HDR Camcorder. Whether you are shooting videos in broad daylight or under the starry nightsky, this camera helps you capture memories in great detail. Moreover, relive your memories by capturing them on this Sony camcorder.
4K HDR (HLG)19 movie quality
High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology puts a visual revolution on display by revealing far wider ranges of colour and brightness, fully realising the exceptional quality of high-resolution 4K images. Moreover, with Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) recording capability, the FDR-AX700 makes it easy to immediately enjoy HDR images without extra processing, simply by connecting the camera to a HLG-compatible Sony TV via a USB cable.
XAVC S for high-bitrate recording
The XAVC S format20 is used for 4K and HD recording. High bitrates of up to 100 Mbps for 4K and 50 Mbps for full-HD recording ensure beautifully detailed movies with minimal compression noise. Since 100 Mbps recording is possible even at the highest rate of 120 fps in Full HD, high-quality slow-motion sequences can be created during post-processing.
Wide AF coverage
Up to 273 phase-detection AF points cover approx. 84% of the entire image area. This makes AF coverage widespread and dense enough to quickly capture subjects, such as fast-moving ones that are otherwise difficult to focus on.
1.0-type Exmor RS CMOS sensor
A large 14.2-megapixel (effective) 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor delivers beautiful background bokeh defocus effects and superior sensitivity for capturing high-quality images with less noise, even under dark or bright conditions. This sensor integrates up to 273 phase-detection AF points that densely cover approx. 84% of the image area, for precise tracking of subjects throughout the shooting frame.
ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T lens
Custom ZEISS optics are fine-tuned to deliver the full beauty of 4K, with pin-sharp detail to every corner, thanks to the use of both advanced aspherical (AA) and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements. The 29 mm-wide angle means grand landscapes can be captured, or you can get a closer view with up to 12x optical and 24x Clear Image Zoom.
Reliable subject tracking
Subject tracking performance is optimised by combining high-speed readout and processing of AF data, plus a new algorithm developed specially for movies. After focus is achieved, wide AF area coverage helps the camcorder to maintain and track focus on a moving subject with reliable tenacity and precision.  WIDE  NARROW
The Fast Hybrid AF system enables data readout from a wide autofocus coverage area via the phase-detection AF sensor, while the enhanced BIONZ X image processor realises high-speed data processing for accurate AF tracking on fast-moving subjects.
AF area indication and adjustment
Easily keep track of your focus areas with phase-detection AF frames around in-focus subjects. Switching between focus points is seamless as well, with a simple touch on the screen to select a new focus target.
Adjustable AF Subject Switching Sensitivity
Five levels of AF Subject Switching Sensitivity are available. RESPONSIVE setting allows the camera to switch quickly among multiple subjects or focus points, while LOCKED ON setting favour a single subject.
Extra Fine LCD touch panel
The 3.5-type Extra Fine LCD screen lets you monitor high-resolution images of approximately 1,555 K dots, so it’s very convenient and comfortable on the eyes, as it reproduces moving pictures with subtle gradations of detail intact, allowing you to focus accurately on subjects in the shooting frame. Moreover, its touch panel feature allows you to select an autofocus point with ease.
The manual dial and buttons on the side of the body allow swift, easy adjustment of IRIS (aperture), GAIN/ISO and shutter speed. Dual slots for SD card and SD card/Memory Stick support both simultaneous and relay recording. Use Relay mode where long recording sessions need to span across both cards or, for critical recordings, the simultaneous recording mode provides a backup, for improved flexibility in client and production workflows.
Speed up your editing and delivery with the option of onboard proxy recording. Lower-resolution proxy files are captured alongside full-resolution 4K video, for easy sharing and online collaboration, as well as more efficient editing on under-powered computers.
