Sony FDR-AX1 4K Consumer Camcorder!

Together with the QX10 and QX100 smartphone accessory lenses, Sony today announces a full-fledged 4K camcorder aimed at both amateurs and professionals, as well as two smaller HD camcorders. The FDR-AX1 is Sony’s first consumer 4K camcorder, but at the same time it qualifies for professional work such as news coverage. The HDR-AS30V continues Sony’s series of small action cams and comes with its own underwater casing, while the HDR-MVR1 is aimed at music recording and consequently sports 120° stereo microphones. Details after the break.
