Sony FDR-AX700 4K HDR Camcorder

Product Description

To record stunning images of bats in low or no visible light, Sony created a line of consumer level cameras with an ability to record in near-infrared (~850nm). The Sony AX700 is the current top of the "consumer" line that retains the NightShot capability, though it's capabilities and image quality cross into professional territory. 

Consider this model first if absolutely the best low light performance possible is most important. The 1'' image sensor is as large as professional DSLRs and movie cameras. 12x optical zoom while not as powerful as the AX53, still should have plenty of reach into bat roosts. This camera can record frame rates of 240/480/960, great to slowing down stunning images of bats in flight (it is unclear at this writing what image resolution can be used at what frame rate, and if NightShot can be used at speeds higher than the 120 FPS "Smooth Slow Record" function (used to slow down the Mexican long-tounged bats in the video below.)

This camera will record up to 120 FPS in NightShot mode. When using higher FPS like 240 or 480, the NightShot mode is disabled.

  • Record bat activity in spectacular 4K Ultra HD detail, with NightShot
  • Compatible with BCM's IRLamp6 illuminators for bright, evenly distributed IR light which have never been shown to disturb bat activity
  • Wide AF coverage. With up to 273 phase-detection AF points densely covering approx. 84% of the image area, the stacked Exmor RS™ CMOS sensor allows precise subject tracking throughout the shooting frame.
  • Fast AF response. The Fast Hybrid AF system with the BIONZ X imaging engine efficiently processes data from the wide-area phase-detection AF sensor for high-speed focus on even fast-moving subjects.
  • High-resolution OLED viewfinder. The 2359k dots high-resolution OLED Tru-Finder™ electronic viewfinder provides high contrast, accurate color, and excellent visibility even in bright sunlight.
  • Extra Fine LCD. The 3.5-type Extra Fine LCD touch panel (1555k dots) offers clear, vivid images and lets you select an autofocus point by tapping the screen.
  • Versatile, professional-style functions. A wide range of gamma and color space customization includes S-log2 and S-log3 profiles that professionals use for creative flexibility in post-production workflows. Also, with variable frame-rate recording at up to 960(NTSC)/1000(PAL) fps, you can see extraordinary detail in playback of slow-motion movies.
