Capture professional-quality images

Just because you don't have a production studio, doesn't mean that your movies have to look amateur. Shoot festival-ready films with the Sony FDR-AX700 4K Ultra HD Camcorder. Get crisp, beautifully detailed images in 4K that pop off the screen.

Don't let poor recording quality provide you with shooting limitations. Get a fuller range of colour and brightness thanks to Hybrid Log Gamma HDR technology, so that your creativity isn't stifled and you catch the image you want in whatever setting.

The wide angle lens means scenic landscapes can be captured for grand opening scenes. The optical zoom allows you to get a clear close-up to capture your subject's subtle facial expressions.

Focus on moving subjects

Capture fast moving images easily thanks to the enhanced BIONZ X image processing engine. The FDRAX700 is optimised for faster processing and focusing speeds so that you can shoot your exciting chase scene in stunning 4K.

Take advantage of the wide auto focus range to film a large bustling setting, like a dance competition. Switch between focus points seamlessly with reliable subject tracking, so that you can focus on multiple couples at once. Want to focus on one couple? No problem. Just point the camera, and focus on a single subject.

Don't let shaky hands ruin your shot. The Optical SteadyShot lets you shoot your movies still and stable, even when your hands are not. This feature is perfect if you need to move alongside your subject for a scene.

Take advantage of the intuitive controls

Control your camcorder easily thanks to the manual dial and buttons, which allows you to swiftly adjust your shot's aperture, ISO, and shutter speed, so that you have better shots to work with when you get to editing.

Don't want to wait until editing to see how the shot will look? No problem. With an intuitive professional menu operation, you can easily see your video on the extra fine LCD touch panel in 4K quality. While shooting, this screen allows you to focus accurately on the subjects in the shooting frame.

If it's too bright outside and you can't see the screen then don't worry. The High-precision OLED Viewfinder reproduces images with extraordinary precision and accurate colour, so that you can confidently and easily monitor composition.

Need to shoot a driving scene from inside the car? You can't get a cameraman for that. Just secure the camera to the dash by attaching a general-purpose accessory to the MI Shoe. Then use the built-in LANC port to connect to a LANC-compatible accessory to control the camcorder remotely. No cameraman. No problem.

Make your movies look cinema-ready

Making a professional quality movie doesn't end once you're done shooting. Editing and post-production take up a massive part of creating a stunning film. Luckily, the FDR AX700 makes editing simple and easy.

S-Gamut and S-Log shooting gives you flexibility to make brighter movies with colour grading in post.

Upload your videos to iMovie, or Final Cut Pro X and make your finished project look ready for the cinemas.

Get the most out of your camcorder

We recommend using a UHS Speed Class 3 memory card as it offers the speed you need for capturing 4K Ultra HD footage. Keep your new gear protected with a travel-friendly case or bag which will also hold your daily essentials.

Delivering your online order

Get this delivered when it suits you

We’ll show you your current delivery options for this item in checkout. Subject to the time you order, and where you want delivery, these options will include:

  • FREE standard delivery in 4-7 working days
  • Next day delivery or any following day between 8am & 5pm (£5.00)
  • Delivery in a timeslot of your choice next day or any following day (£10.00)
Please note: if we’re out of stock of an item but getting more in, we indicate – on listings pages and the product page – how soon we can dispatch for delivery to you. In this case, please go ahead and order, and we’ll contact you later to confirm an exact delivery date.

Important update on our delivery service for small items

Our courier partners (DPD, Royal Mail and On the Dot) have all updated their delivery processes to take extra precautions due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Please follow the below advice:

1. Customers can use the DPD app to nominate a ‘safe place’ for their delivery to be left if they do not want close contact.

For customers unable to use the DPD app, DPD is still able to offer a contact-free delivery, and will take a picture of the property and capture a proof of delivery name instead of capturing a customer signature.

2. Royal Mail is an unsigned service . Where Royal Mail needs to deliver a parcel, its teams will place the parcel at the customer’s door. Having knocked on the door, the delivery teams will step aside to a safe distance while the item is retrieved. If the delivery cannot take place, Royal Mail will take the parcel to the local depot for collection by the customer.  The parcel will be held for 18 days as per normal process.

3. For On the Dot, where a standard signature delivery is not possible, On the Dot will attempt to leave the parcel in a safe place and inform the customer of where the parcel has been placed.

To see the courier partner for your delivery, please check your dispatch confirmation email (which will also include your tracking reference).
