Sony FDR-AX100 is orld’s first 1.0” CMOS sensor featuring an Exmor R CMOS image sensor technology. With this back-illuminated technology, the sensor doubles light sensitivity and combines with Sony’s Column A/D Conversion to reduce noise by half — a great help when photographing in dimly lit environments. Markedly reduced noise is evident even when high-sensitivity settings are used for capturing night landscapes or indoor scenes.
The FDR-AX100 camcorder records 4K and HD movies in XAVC S, a consumer friendly format based on the XAVC codec developed for 4K/HD and professional use, which uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 for video compression and linear PCM for audio compression, while saving files in a MP4 wrapper.
Although Sony tries their best to make the new codec-XAVC S compatible with most devices or NLEs, it is still difficult to import XAVC S videos to Final Cut Pro (FCP X included).
