Re: Sony launches PXW-Z100 4K Handheld XDCAM

In the case of the present firmware both the Z100 and the FDR-AX1 are stereo. However the manual for my AX1 has a figure which shows the audio as 4 channel XAVC-S !!!! Page 38 in my AX1 user manual also shows LPCM 4 ch 24bit XAVC-S. It isn't of course, now my AX1 is 2 channel 48k 16 bit. What the real limits are is unclear to me and which firmware. At first I too thought they had got the user manual for the Z100 but that at the time was only XAVC 10bit. We will have to see what transpires.Clearly, typical Sony the cameras are really the same and may be identical other than the extra interfaces of the Z100. Marketing decides what one gets for what price.
