The Sony 64GB FDR-AXP55 4K Handycam is a palm-sized Handycam camcorder that combines a Zeiss 20x optical zoom lens and a high-sensitivity image sensor to produce crisp and high-quality UHD 4Kor HD video. This is the 50 Hz version of the camcorder which is compatible with European broadcast standards and is not compatible with NTSC equipment. The Exmor R CMOS image sensor supports UHD 4K video capture at 24 or 25 fps using Sony's XAVC S codec and features pixels that are approximately 1.6x larger than the previous model for enhanced performance in all conditions, particularly low-light scenarios. the camcorder features a variety of automatic image and audio options for easy point-and-shoot operation, as well as enhanced manual controls that give you more creative freedom. It features a wide 35mm-equivalent focal length of 26.8mm (in movie mode) to fit more into your shots and a 20x optical zoom range. In HD shooting mode, it further reduces effects of camera shake even under unstable conditions with 5-axis Intelligent Active mode compensating for vibration in five different directions, so you can shoot stable high-quality movies even while running. Project your footage directly from the camera to view your day's shooting, or share memories without crowding everyone around the LCD screen. Fast Intelligent AF achieves very speedily, accurate contrast-detection autofocus by minimizing lens motion, predicting the AF range, and accelerating lens drive, thereby improving response so you can capture more fleeting moments. This is useful for reviewing, in greater slow-motion detail, sports, and everyday action that can occur too quickly in real-time for you to see clearly. The FDR-AXP55 records 4K and HD movies in the XAVC S format, which uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 for video compression and linear PCM for audio compression, while saving files in an MP4 wrapper which allows for extensive record times and easy editing. Capture 4K still images continuously over an extensive period of time at a selected constant interval from each shot to the next, edit the entire sequence of still images in post-production, and enjoy playback of that series of images as a time-lapse movie. Enhance your viewing experience even without a 4K television. Using super-sampling, the camera automatically down-converts 4K footage to exceptionally detailed Full HD.The Time Code function records hours/minutes/seconds/frames on image data for precise advanced video editing. Connect to up to five compatible Sony cameras via Wi-Fi and use the camcorder's LCD to preview what the other cameras are seeing and simultaneously start recording on all synced cameras. After recording, you can use the PlayMemories Home software (available as a free download on Sony's website) to easily edit and create multi-view movies.
