Sony has announced the Sony FDR-AX1 4K Camcorder. The Sony FDR-AX1 Digital 4K Video Camera Recorder is the first consumer 4K video camera from Sony. They’ve used the technology developed for their professional video cameras to create a compact, easy-to-operate 4K consumer model that’s designed to make 4K video and professional-quality audio available to the masses. The FDR-AX1’s powerful image processor is identical to the high-performance processors found in Sony’s professional video cameras. By incorporating an image processor that can handle 4K video at 60 fps into a consumer camcorder, everyone will be able to document important family moments, get creative with friends, record sporting events and capture the world around them in lifelike detail. The FDR-AX1’s native 3840 x 2160 4K resolution enables you to create movies with four times as much detail and quadruple the image quality of a Full HD 1080p camcorder. Plus, this model features a back-illuminated 8.3MP Exmor R CMOS image sensor that works in concert with the processor so you can record at the maximum frame rate – even when shooting 4K video. This means that even your high-speed action shots and sports videos will be clear, sharp and detailed.
