Working in 4K UltraHD with the Sony FDR-AX1 | Travel With Your Camera | Scoop.it

Overall, I’m pleased with this purchase.

 

Looking at the footage from this camera reminds me of my first foray into 1080 HD with the Canon XH-A1.

 

After years of working in standard definition, the Canon’s 1440×1080 resolution was a breath of fresh air.

 

Now, after years working with HD, the Sony’s 3840×2160 resolution is quite a sight.

 

But like the Canon, the general “feel” of the footage is definitely that of a first generation prosumer camera. Looking at the video at 100%, I can see some artifacting and the image seems to be slightly grainy. But again, I may be spoiled after working with larger sensor DSLRs for so long.

 

But until a reasonably-priced DSLR or MFT camera that can shoot 4K is released, I’m sure to get plenty of use from the Sony.
