The new addition of My Voice Cancelling takes audio to the next level by automatically reducing vocals from immediately behind the camera without affecting the subject's voice. As a result, unwanted vocal noise from the videographer is reduced so the subject's voice is clear and ensures movies shot on the AX100 camcorder sound just as good as they look.
Electronic Viewfinder, LCD and Manual Control
The camcorder also features a bright, high-contrast 0.39” type OLED Tru-Finder™ which reproduces rich color and deep blacks. A new optical design of the Electronic View Finder, using four dual-surface aspherical lenses, allows for a 33-degree wide angle view for crisp edge-to-edge visibility. The 3.5” (16:9) WhiteMagic™ LCD™ screen (921K) displays sharp, vivid images, so consumers can compose shots more easily and even change settings to best represent the scene.
Sony's AX100 camcorder gives filmmakers more control over shutter speed and aperture by offering a choice of selectable Clear, 1/4 filter, 1/16 filter or 1/64 Neutral Density (ND) filters to adjust light levels entering the lens. Together with its large image sensor, the built-in ND filters enables “bokeh” effects even in bright conditions without increasing shutter speed. An easily accessible lens ring provides fingertip control of focus or zoom. Film enthusiasts will also appreciate the side-mounted dial that can be assigned functions like gain or brightness, making it easy to control even when looking through the electronic viewfinder.
Wi-Fi and Other Convenient Features
The AX100 model has on-board Wi-Fi for easy connection with any iOS™ or Android™ smartphone coupled with Sony's free PlayMemories® Mobile app, and features Near Field Communication (NFC) one-touch for simple connection to NFC-enabled Android™ devices. Wi-Fi also allows wireless playback of content stored in the Handycam on a networked TV (DLNA renderer compatible TV and access point are required; not compatible with XAVC S format). Additionally, a connected smartphone can be used as a remote to control the camcorder.
Playback of video and still photos on a 4K TV is as simple as connecting the supplied HDMI cable. Content captured on the new 4K camcorder can also be enjoyed using Super-sampled Full HD Playback which automatically down-converts 4K footage to very high quality 2K (Full HD), using the enormous amounts of data in every 4K frame for spectacular results.
Users can expand their photographic and movie shooting possibilities by attaching optional accessories via the Multi Interface Shoe, including a powerful external light, stereo microphones, and optional XLR kit. A compatible remote control can also be connected with the Multi Terminal
