Sony FDR-AX700 Compact 4K HDR Camcorder

Captures every subject with the realism of 4K HDR video

Designed for professional performance and ease of use, the Sony FDR-AX700 captures every subject with the realism of 4K HDR (HLG)1 video, thanks to Fast Hybrid AF and other pro-class capabilities.

Record exactly what you see as you like it

Capture life just as you see it in true-to-life 4K HDR (HLG) images with 1.0 – type stacked Exmor RS™ CMOS image sensor. The unrivalled performance of Fast Hybrid AF ensures that autofocus and AF tracking are exceptionally precise, responsive and reliable, so you’ll have every chance to take fantastic shots of fleeting action. With such professional-calibre capabilities so conveniently at your command, there are no limits to how far this Handycam® can take your shooting ambitions.

Fast Hybrid AF

High-performance AF stays focused on even fast-moving subjects.

Incomparable AF performance

An extraordinarily accurate AF system with 273 phase-detection auto-focus points can tenaciously lock onto and track such fast subjects as moving trains and such unpredictable ones as nimble animals anywhere within the frame. With its powerful high-speed BIONZ X image processing engine and advanced new movie AF algorithm, the Sony AX700 achieves focus with speed, precision, and flexibility unprecedented in the Handycam® lineup.

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.

Reliable subject tracking

A combination of high-speed data readout and processing performance, plus a new AF algorithm designed especially for movie recording ensures precise, reliable rapid subject tracking.

AF Tracking Depth Range

Choose one of five AF Tracking Depth Range settings from “1” [NARROW] to track slow-moving subjects without switching to subjects nearby to “5” [WIDE] for tracking fast-moving subjects.

AF Subject Switching Sensitivity

Five levels of AF Subject Switching Sensitivity range from “1” [LOCKED ON] to stay on a single subject, to “5” [RESPONSIVE] for quickly shifting among subjects as you recompose.


Next-generation imaging for more detail, brightness and colour in every shot

Capture the cutting edge of reality

High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology represents a visual revolution, revealing a dramatically wider colour and brightness range to match the high-resolution image quality of 4K. The Sony AX700 makes taking these astonishing HDR images easy with Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) recording – no extra processing is required. Simply connect the camcorder to an HLG-compatible Sony TV via a USB cable to immediately enjoy.

Advanced operation

Advanced operating features put more professional results within reach.

Designed for advanced movie production

Take command of movie production with a wide range of manual controls, ergonomic button and grip design, plus a large zoom seesaw lever for fluid handheld shooting. A high-resolution electronic viewfinder and LCD touch panel make it easy to preview and monitor shots in precise detail. Dual memory card slots are versatile and convenient for extended relay recording or simultaneous backup recording.

High-resolution OLED viewfinder

The 2359 dots high-resolution OLED Tru-Finder™ electronic viewfinder provides high contrast, accurate colour, 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.

More functional, enhanced menu

Adapted from Sony professional camcorders, the menu system offers faster access to advanced controls and a live settings preview.

Diverse professional recording

Professional functions open up new shooting capabilities.

Versatile, professional-style functions

A wide range of gamma and colour space customisation 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.

S-log2 / S-log3

S-log2 and S-log3 gamma curves allow far wider ranges of brightness and colour to be captured, enhancing post-processing potential. LUTs (Look Up Tables) are also available for free3.

Picture profile

You can use pre-configured and customisable picture profiles to save time and trouble when adjusting colour, detail, and gamma to quickly achieve a particular look or production requirement.

Zebra function

This handy tool indicates areas of correct- and over-exposure with an adjustable zebra stripe pattern, even when you’re shooting with S-log gamma.

Express your vision beyond realtime motion

The Super Slow Motion and Slow & Quick Motion4 let you record within a vast range of speeds, from the most fleeting action at up to 40x super slow motion, to up to 60x quick motion videos shot at as little as 1fps.
