Hi PPL :)

 

We all know i am a HUGE Defender when it comes to Film Cameras and i am not much into Digital

BUT now i have seen the Sony FDR AX 100 and i am sorely tempted to get this Camera.

For the Price of  2000$ (+/- 100) this 4K camera produces nice pictures.

I only wish it had two XLR's for the sound.

 

What do you think? I would take the Camera to vacations or so... because it is compact and can be packed in any photocamera bag

 

Beautiful Pictures here:

Cheers

You mentioned you wish it had 2 xlr inputs so I'm guessing that's for pro work rather than vacations.  For vacations, eh, why not.  For any pro work, the rolling shutter skewing on this thing is insanely bad.  If you get a chance to demo one just try panning it back and forth and notice the lag.
