Re: Sony Announces New AX100 Firmware with 100Mbp/s

It wont do anything to the frame rate. It wont have any affect on the "smoothness" either. It will however leave more overhead to encode more detail on high complexity scenes. It will allow for less macro blocking in high motion areas. It will also encode a bit deeper into the shadows, which is where low bit rates break down first. (blocky shadows caused by very low bitrates)

100Mbp/s UHD is roughly about as "durable" as 24Mbp/s 1080 AVCHD. That's basically "acceptable" or "OK" where as 60Mbp/s UHD is pretty much junk.

I have a FDR-AX1 that will record 30P at 60Mbps and 100Mbps and can confirm that the image is a lot cleaner at 100Mbps. 30P for me is also not acceptable so I only tested the 30P out of interest. I record 60P 150Mbps.
