Re: Sony FDR-AX100

You made no mistake, Dennis, you were being helpful. All of us have posted helpful information, as you have done, not knowing it was already in another thread! I have done it multiple times.

This thread is a very good place to have this info, since it is such an active and popular thread.

I hope I did not offend you, it was not my intention. Have a great day!

Re: Sony FDR-AX100

Are there improvements of firmware v3 over v2? Is quality of the video improved? But how much?
Thanks

Re: Sony FDR-AX100

I found the autofocus function significantly improved over v2 of the firmware. Have not yet seen any of the100 MBPS 4K, so I can't speak to that.
Hope this helps,
Denny

No, the AX100 checks for the U3 rating. If it is not there, regardless of the speed of the card, it will not work.

Re: Sony FDR-AX100

So what is the advantage of using a UHS-3 card and recording at 100gbs?...How will that improve my footage?

Re: Sony FDR-AX100

A higher bit rate means more detail/information is being captured. A good way to see the difference is by filming a shot of a park or with trees / branches etc. You should be able to see a clear difference when you play back the footage.
