The Sony FDR-AX1 Digital 4K Handycam is a consumer camcorder that offers 4K video capture. The following is an early rundown of key features:
- Budget 4K. This camera delivers 4K resolution in a consumer codec. Footage is recorded at 3840 × 2160, which has a 16:9 aspect ratio instead of the standard 17:9 of traditional 4K. This makes it work well with HDTVs.
- Hi-Speed Capture. The AX1 can capture at speeds up to 60fps allowing for 2.5x over-cranked footage.
- 20x Optical Zoom. Reach farther with a 31 – 630mm f/1.6 – 3.4 (Super35mm equivalent) zoom lens!
