Re: Sony FDR-AX100

Got to get some "u3" memory myself...

XAVCS @50Mbps requires SDXC, but even a "slow" speed card has been working fine, faster is definitely better for responsiveness/data transfer, but the slow cheap one I got at first worked

Looking forward to the higher bitrate 100Mbps XAVCS, doubling the potential amount of "data" in the mix should be a noticeable improvement on an already impressive image. I suspect a "fast" U1 card "could" handle the higher bitrate, but to ensure that there were no "gotchas", Sony decided to make the camera look for a "U3", where there will be more headroom.

With the higher bitrates and more data intensive codecs, I guess buying a new top rated card is just going to be part of "upgrading"! Life on the bleeding edge isn't cheap, but at least it looks like those U3 Transcend 64G cards aren't terribly expensive! I paid more $/G for the "slow" U1 SDXC cards not that long ago!

Hi Andy,
The focus is faster, and there is significantly less hunting for that "sweet spot".

I'm just thrilled that with the upgrade I get a camcorder that's better than what I initially bought....and I can use my old cards as storage or emergency backups to record on.

Recording a music concert two hours:
- Several .mts files are generated 1,97GB
- When they get together in the timeline are lost 2 seconds between each file. It is normal?
- With a Panasonic TM900 files produced 3.99 GB

Use Sony PlayMemories software that came with the camera to transfer clips to the PC. It will make a single clip without any loss of audio. Will place in a directory named as the date of transfer and name the clip by the date and time it was shot.

Re: Sony FDR-AX100 - cold shoe adapter revisited

Have been on the look-out for a solution to mount my accessories to the camera and today I found this item. It's got a higher profile to it than some might prefer, but for lightweight use, I think it will work for me. I started to attach a SmallHD DP6 monitor but changed my mind. A little too much mass up there.

It handled my microphone, wireless receiver and LED light okay. It's solid, doesn't come off unless you loosen it. The foot is notched to prevent contact with the electrical connector inside.

Hi Mark, I'm curious to know where you found this adapter and for how much? Do you have a link to the seller where you got yours from?

Re: Sony FDR-AX100

Ralph,

I got mine at a chain store in Japan, called Yodobashi Camera. I looked for a link to include in my earlier post but didn't find anything, nor anything at B&H or Amazon that was like this adapter.

Here's a link to their English web-site. If you contact them, it would be best to attach the package pictures I'm including here, just to make it easy for them to know what you're wanting.

www.yodobashi.com

I'd be happy to pick one up for you, but I'm travelling out of Japan right now and won't be back until October.

Price was about $30.

Mark

Re: Sony FDR-AX100

I have that adapter Ron is talking about also, and it's useless unless you want to use (certain) Sony stuff only. I got it to work with a couple Sony microphones they had on display. It's like their multi-port adapter that takes two other adapter cables to connect to a STANDARD LANC plug. That Sony hotshoe adapter is too narrow for anything else. The bounce adapter works with standard sized accessories. Measurement of a standard accessory looks to be about 23/32" or 18mm.

Re: Sony FDR-AX100

This is the one you need, period. It's solid metal. I have one for each of my AX100s. Initially I went the stupid Sony accesories route and had to buy two pieces to accomplish the same thing. What a waste.

This one from DM accesories is perfect, but you need to check it for tightness every few hours if you put a big load on it, it will slowly untighten. But I'm very very happy with it.
