CES 2014: Sony shows its first 4K video camcorder, the FDR-AX100 at CES 2014

Luke Westaway gets his hands on Sony's first 4K video camcorder, the FDR-AX100 at CES 2014.

Hello, I'm [unk] for CNET here at CES 2014 where we've seen a lot of 4K TV's but this is a 4K camcorder. Let's take a look. So this is Sony's first 4K Camcorder that's not aimed at people who basically are full-time video professionals. It's called the FDR AX100 and it's got a 1 inch sensor and use 4K at either 24 or 30 frames per second. It is pretty chunky so it's pushing the boundaries of portability but it feels quite comfy to hold. It's got a 12x optical zoom and I'm hopeful that the picture quality you get from this will be really good. One thing to bear in mind is unless you're very wealthy you probably don't have a 4K TV on which to view the beautiful 4K pictures that you've recorded using this camcorder. On the other hand, you can think about this as future proofing so if maybe you're thinking of getting a 4K TV in the next few years, you've got something that will support it eventually. It's coming out in early March, it's gonna cost $2,000. Would you buy one of these? Let me know. I'm [unk] for CNET, check out ces.cnet.com for more.
