Additions to its photography range include a 4K camcorder, two full HD camcorders and a digital camera with interchangeable lenses.
Two versions of the company’s new compact camcorder are to be available — the US$1,999 Handycam AX100 in the US and the £1,939 Handycam AX100E in Europe. Both are capable of recording in ultra-high-resolution 4K, even in low light, thanks to a back illuminated 1.0-type Exmor R CMOS sensor.
NFC functionality can be used to pair the camcorder to a second device to allow clips and photos to be transferred via WiFi. A Smart Remote Control function allows the user to start and stop recording from their smartphone.
A light and compact A5000 camera, meanwhile, offers DSLR quality images through its 20.1 megapixel sensor, viewable on a 180-degree tiltable LCD screen. Interchangeable lenses can be swapped in and out and NFC can be used for one tap pairing.
Sony is also featuring NFC in an expanded in-car audio range that features three CD players — the MEX-N4000BT, MEX-N5000BT and MEX-N6000BH — and two additions to its GS premium range, the MEX-GS610BT and MEX-GS810BH.
NFC will allow users to touch their phone to the in-car unit in order to activate and connect to Bluetooth, enabling hands-free calling and music streaming.
