Product Expert camcorders

The Sony FDR-AX100E is a compact 4K camcorder. The Exmor R-CMOS sensor is 4.9 times larger than with a normal camcorder. This makes the camera even more light-sensitive, which allows you to create beautiful bokeh even in low light. The new Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens has a wide-angle of 29mm and 12x optical zoom. At full zoom in, the optical image stabilization with active mode will prevent vibrations. With a minimum focusing distance of 1cm, you can also make sharp macro recordings. Adjust the camera manually with the conveniently placed buttons and the control ring around the lens. The LCD screen with touchscreen has an opening angle of 90 degrees and a rotation angle of 270 degrees. You can attach additional accessories to the Multi Interface Shoe. In addition, the camcorder has a connector for a microphone and headphones.
