Cameras from Sony get smaller. This is a trend that we’ve seen at CES for quite some time, and the smaller they get, the more features per square inch a user gets. Speaking of inches, the back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensors on both the HDR-AS200V and the FDR-X100V are 1/2.3-inches, that’s bigger than many camcorders.

There is little doubt that the dawn of 4k video is now upon the industry. Camera manufacturer’s and post-production workflows are now going through the growing pains of introducing a higher resolution, much like the transition from standard definition video to high definition. One certainty the consumer can count on is that as new products roll out, the costs of 4K camera equipment and gear will decrease as it enters every corner of the market. One such example is the new Panasonic Lumix FZ1000K which will sell for $899.
