  • Features
    4K HDR (HLG) movie quality

    4K HDR (HLG) 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, without extra processing, HDR images, simply by connecting the camera to a HLG-compatible Sony TV via a USB cable.

    XAVC S for high-bitrate recording

    XAVC S for high-bitrate recording

    The XAVC S format is used for 4K and HD recording. High bitrates of up to 100Mbps for 4K, and 50Mbps for full-HD recording, ensure beautifully detailed movies with minimal compression noise. Since 100Mbps recording is possible even at the highest rate of 120fps in Full HD, high-quality slow-motion sequences can be created during post-processing.

    1.0-type Exmor RS™ CMOS sensor

    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.

    Enhanced BIONZ X image processing engine

    Enhanced BIONZ X image processing engine

    The enhanced BIONZ X image processing engine is optimised for faster processing, to drive focusing speeds, stunning 4K HDR (HLG) capture, and incredible slow motion recording at up to 960(NTSC)/1000(PAL)fps.

    ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens

    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 29mm 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.

    Wide AF coverage

    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.

    High-speed AF

    High-speed AF

    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.

    Reliable subject tracking

    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.  [1] WIDE  [2] NARROW

    Adjustable AF Tracking Depth Range

    Adjustable AF Tracking Depth Range

    Select an AF tracking depth configuration within a range from “1” to “5” — from the narrowest setting for relatively little movement to the widest setting for relatively dynamic movement. This lets you take advantage of specific ways to track subjects according to your expressive intentions, subject movement, and shooting conditions.

    Adjustable AF Subject Switching Sensitivity

    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.

    AF area indication and adjustment

    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.

    Optical SteadyShot™ (Active Mode)

    Optical SteadyShot™ (Active Mode)

    Optical SteadyShot™(Active mode) lets you shoot stable, beautiful images. 

    High-precision OLED Tru-Finder™

    High-precision OLED Tru-Finder™

    The 2359 dots OLED Tru-Finder reproduces images with extraordinary precision and accurate colour. This high-contrast electronic viewfinder (EVF) lets you confidently, easily monitor composition, shooting and playback of footage even in bright sunlight.

    Extra Fine LCD touch panel

    Extra Fine LCD touch panel

    The 3.5-type Extra Fine LCD screen lets you monitor high-resolution images of approximately 1555k 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.

    Professional menu operation

    Professional menu operation

    Adapted from Sony professional camcorders, access to desired menu selections is prompt and efficient, thanks to the menu’s shallow hierarchy design. Furthermore, the semi-transparent menu is overlaid on the live image, so you can conveniently change or check settings while monitoring the image.

    Lens ring

    Lens ring

    The lens ring with increased depth enables easy, natural adjustment of either focusing or zooming, depending on which mode you select via a convenient switch.

    Manual dial

    Manual dial

    The manual dial and buttons on the side of the body allow swift, easy adjustment of IRIS (aperture), GAIN/ISO and shutter speed.

    Built-in ND filters

    Built-in ND filters

    Choose among Clear, 1/4, 1/16 and 1/64 Neutral Density filters to adjust the light level entering the lens. This gives video makers the freedom to precisely control shutter speed and aperture for greater creative possibilities. In conjunction with the camcorder’s large image sensor, it allows creation of beautifully smooth bokeh background defocus effects without increasing shutter speed, even if you’re shooting outdoors in sunny conditions.

    Dual slots

    Dual slots

    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.

    Grip shaped for easy holding

    Grip shaped for easy holding

    The grip is shaped to conform to various kinds of hands, so the camera is easy for anyone to hold. This makes handheld shooting especially steady, even on extended shoots under tough conditions.

    Large zoom seesaw lever

    Large zoom seesaw lever

    The large zoom seesaw lever gives you complete control over your focal length and entire zoom range. Zoom as slowly, or quickly, as needed with smooth, precisely controlled results every time.

    Highly compatible Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe

      4K HDR (HLG) movie quality

      4K HDR (HLG) 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, without extra processing, HDR images, simply by connecting the camera to a HLG-compatible Sony TV via a USB cable.

      XAVC S for high-bitrate recording

      XAVC S for high-bitrate recording

      The XAVC S format is used for 4K and HD recording. High bitrates of up to 100Mbps for 4K, and 50Mbps for full-HD recording, ensure beautifully detailed movies with minimal compression noise. Since 100Mbps recording is possible even at the highest rate of 120fps in Full HD, high-quality slow-motion sequences can be created during post-processing.

      1.0-type Exmor RS™ CMOS sensor

      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.

      Enhanced BIONZ X image processing engine

      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 29mm 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.

      Wide AF coverage

      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.

      High-speed AF

      High-speed AF

      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.

      Reliable subject tracking

      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.  [1] WIDE  [2] NARROW

      Adjustable AF Tracking Depth Range
