4K recording has made focusing more difficult. Missed focus becomes exponentially more obvious with the increase in resolution over HD formats. Sony's phase detection autofocus uses 273 points to lock onto and track subjects as they move through the frame. Focus speed and tracking can be adjusted to fit your project. So, whether you're tracking fast-moving vehicles or actors moving through the frame, the AX700 will be able to keep up and maintain sharp focus.
For more advanced users, Sony included S-Log2 and S-Log3 picture profiles alongside their S-Gamut color space. Enabling this functionality grants you greater control over the final image through post-production processing.
The OLED electronic viewfinder allows for confident compositions. Its wide contrast and color reproduction help accurately represent the image to be recorded.
The 3.5" touchscreen LCD panel provides a convenient way to monitor your compositions. Not only can the touch functionality be used for menu navigation, but focus points can be selected as well.
Manual Lens Ring
Using the switch on the side, the lens ring facilitates smooth and precise manual adjustment of either focus or zoom.
The manual dial and buttons on the side of the body allow for swift, easy adjustment of iris (aperture), gain/ISO, and shutter speed.
Built-In ND Filters
Choose among Clear, 1/4, 1/16 and 1/64 Neutral Density filters to adjust the light level entering the lens. This gives video makers the freedom to precisely control shutter speed and aperture for greater creative possibilities. Utilize the ND filters outdoors to open up the lens and create out-of-focus backgrounds.
Dual Memory Card Slots
Dual slots for SD card and SD card/Memory Stick support, with both simultaneous and relay recording. Use relay mode where long recording sessions need to span across both cards; for critical recordings, the simultaneous recording mode provides a backup for improved flexibility in client and production workflows.
The built-in LANC port allows connection to a LANC-compatible accessory, so you can control the camcorder remotely.
4K HDMI Output
Send clean 4K video to external monitors and even off-board recorders, or simply enjoy your recordings on a TV, with the HDMI output. The full-size (Type-A) HDMI terminal provides a more secure connection than commonly-found Mini or micro-HDMI terminals.
MI (Multi Interface) Accessory Shoe
The MI Shoe is compatible with various general-purpose accessories, and further expands the camcorder's shooting capabilities in a range of situations.
