CES 2014 Best Camera: Sony FDR-AX100

4k camcorder and award

The Sony FDR-AX100 is a 4k HandyCam and costs $2,000. You get a lot of camera for the price here, especially considering 4K video at 30fps had been coming in around the $5,000 range. We know Sony has the FDR-AX1 which at $4,500 still has its merits, but as a much smaller camcorder that takes SD cards, has a 1-inch sensor and can still output 4k video with an HDMI cable. The biggest loss may be the audio control with XLR inputs, but for the $2.5k difference, generally an audio work around is possible. The means a lot to videographers so check back here because the shipping date is March 17.
