I'm also thinking that 8.1 is what allows me to get thumbnails with 4K files. Perhaps it does have more codec compatibility.

I use windows 7, no 4k file from any camera I have downloaded shows a proper thumbnail, the operating system does not recognize them at all. It is not just footage from an AX100 that does, footage from the BMPC 4K does that as well. WMP will not play any of them either, but VLC has no problem.

So, I think it is a windows problem, not an issue with the camera's file format.

Can someone that uses Final Cut Pro X tell me in which format to "share" the finished project in order for it to be loaded back into the FDR-AX100 to view on a Sony 4K TV?

Chenderson2, I don't use FCP, but I suspect you'll have a problem loading projects back on a card to play through the Sony AX100. Since the camera has a very specific file structure, simply dropping a single project file on the card may cause the AX100 to not recognize the file. I've had the same issue with AVCHD files. Load the file on to a card and insert into an AVCHD camera, and it doesn't even show up. So to view project files, I would use something like a PS3 or Blu Ray player with a USB input that recognizes the files.

In fact I just tried loading one clip I edited on to the card I use for the AX100. Because the card is formatted differently than what you'd use for AVCHD, the PS3 and Blu Ray player didn't even recognize the card. However when I loaded the same clip on a card I've used for AVCHD, I was able to play the file with no problem.

The other issue you may have is the current iteration of firmware on your Sony 4K TV. As an example, it's easy playing a file on a Samsung 4K TV via the one connect box since it recognizes these files through its 4K USB ready inputs. I don't believe you can do the same with the 2013 Sony 4K TVs. The new 2014 Sonys will accept these files via their USB inputs.

Now it's possible that Sony implemented a firmware update as they did with HDMI 2.0 to accept these files, but I'm not sure.

VLC works as Tugela mentioned. Just a thought for the future, once you get to 4k60p files (AX1) I could only get Windows Media Player Classic to play them. Like Ken, Splash Pro is one of my go to players, hopefully they can update it to play the 4k files.

2- Yes. That's exactly what I did when I picked up my camera. We connected it to the one-connect box of the 85" Samsung 4K display and it worked perfectly. In a word, breathtaking. Of course you'd get similar results with a Sony 4K display played from camera to TV.

Tugela, thanks for the reply.

So the VLC player is the default and no thumbnail. I think that it is the player software that decodes the thumbnail because with other than 4K input all is well.

As far as playing from a SDXC memory to a TV, neither Sony nor Samsung are able to play even with a USB adapter. HDMI from the camera was the first ever pb of my own stuff. That includes 4K material edited by PD11 and 12.

Tried downloading WM 12 player, can not be done on win7.

Look at tha 4K video I posted earlier, worth looking at.

Given that in Windows 8.1 I get these thumbnails in File Explorer, I'm not so sure. I think the OS is playing a role.

Hmm, I was under the impression that you could plug a USB card reader into a Samsung 4K TV and get it to recognize & play the files. It does advertise these USB ports as 4K ready. I certainly had no issues with the camera hooked up to the Samsung via HDMI. I don't believe the 2013 Sonys are capable of having 4K input through their USB ports (unless there was a software update applied that I'm not aware of).

Eugene, I'm wondering how you were able to get an edited project to play from the camera via HDMI to a 4K TV. The camera doesn't seem to recognize any files that weren't created by itself. So doing a copy & paste of a 4K project created in an editing program, on to the memory card, doesn't seem to work from what I've seen.

OK, so an update on VLC media player and thumbnails. Although I get thumbnails when using File Explorer outside of VLC, when I access the folder from the memory card from within VLC, no thumbnails. I only get the file listings.

Not all of the Samsung TVs allow that right now, I know the first gen don't for sure and the HU series is starting to ship about now that supposedly supports it. I haven't had the opportunity to test those sets yet.

Troy, are you sure the 9000 series doesn't allow that? I've seen the USB ports on the 65" 9000.

Here's what the literature says:

"Three 4K-capable USB ports

Enable simple playback of content from a wide range of devices, such as storage devices, camera, camcorders and USB drives."

They have different 9000 series nomenclature: F9000 (older generation), HU9000 (newer generation). The newer gen 9000 series does for sure, it's highlighted in the manual and it's very robust for file type, container and codec support (even supports HEVC 5.1 for full 4096 x 2160 @ 30fps)

The manual for the F9000 series only shows support for 1080p and I've tried every 4K/UHD file type imaginable and I've never gotten them to play on the older F9000 series (1st gen), just like Sony's first gen models don't accept 4K/UHD via USB those don't either. That's the reason I went with my LG set because it does support 4K via USB.

**Actually the first gen 9000 series do support 4K via USB but only in Samsung's proprietary 4K *.s4ud file format! I don't know of ANY software or program that can output that file type so you may as well say it's not supported! cool.gif

Ken, not an edited copy from the camera. The video was on a USB stick. The samsung and Sony was unable to play the video from the AX100 SDXC card , either direct or nia USB 3 adaptor. I was only able to see the video straight from the HDMI from the 100. Not clear what those HDMI ports (incl. camera) are since V1.4 will handle 30 FPS 4K video.

As to the thumbnails, I tried all settings on the pc to no avail. I am speculating that VLC does not have a specific XAVC-S decoder. Tried to download from Sony but nothing. I think it will be solved in time.

Wife and I will go to China in 4 weeks including 5 days on the Yangtze river. Have been buying extra batteries and chargers. All non Sony. And memorycards I have enough for 14 hrs.

The major way I think it looks better, btw, is that it looks much more natural. Just so we are clear on that.

Sony does not make any specific requirements except SDXC Class 10 UHS-1.  Is it necessary to purchase the high speed 80 MB/s cards?  The 40 MB/s cards are much cheaper.  I'm thinking about this instead which is about 1/2 price:

There is no way I would use that slow micro SDXC card with a 4K camera.

It is absolutely, positively NOT necessary to purchase the expensive 80+ MB/s high-speed class-10 cards. How do I know?

1. Theory: the XAVC S bitrate is 60 Mbps; that is less than 8 MB/s.

2. Evidence: I have shot 100's of 4K clips using a 40 MB/s card without a problem.

Sandisk Ultra 64GB SDXC (UHS-1). In fact the card is rated 30 MB/s, still way above what is needed and meets what Sony says.

Btw, when I shoot RAW video with my BMPCC, I need to use the Sandisk Extreme Pro, at 90+ MB/s. That is because the bitrates are multiple hundreds of Mbps.

Thanks.

Yes, really! You think the video from the Red looked great because anything coming from that camera 'must' look great. Correct? If I had told you it was from an AX100, you would have said it was absolute garbage. The power of the mind and pre-conceived notions are fascinating. There was less detail in the Red footage, no ands, ifs or buts. If you see otherwise, you're looking at something else, not that clip. IMO, the video was 'dead', it had no life whatsoever. If I saw with my naked eyes the way that video looked, I would be sitting in an ophthalmologist's office right now, not posting here on AVS. I'm very serious.

Seriously, if you thought that Red clip looked great, why are you even here? There is no way you can extract a video from the AX100 that looks anything like that. That's not what the AX100 is designed to do. Obviously the Red is capable of FAR better results than that one Red clip. But just because it came from a Red does NOT make it the cat's meow by definition. That's the problem with so many people that think if something came from an expensive camera, no matter how poorly it was shot, no matter how misadjusted it may have been, no matter how poor the skills of the shooter were, it just absolutely has to be terrific. Untrue.

It's very apparent you like a 'filmic, stylized' approach to video. You won't get that with the AX100. The AX100 will give you reality, not stylized video unless you want to play with it in the editing process.

Further, we've established the AX100 has no 'sharpness' control. So from your point of view, you have no interest. So it's done. But here you are...still.

As for your multiple choice 'option list', it's incomplete. It assumes there is a problem and either we're not sophisticated enough to see it, we see it but don't care or we are too inexperienced to know what to look for. All are false.

The correct option would be the one you didn't post:

D. I am seeing something that, in actuality, cannot be seen in moving video and is probably the result of YouTube compression as it's not visible in native files, even on large screen 4K TVs.

As I mentioned and as Mark also experienced, a number of people at 2 Apple stores saw the videos and were all stunned by how good they are. Not one single person wasn't hugely impressed. Not one single person pointed out the existence of artifacts. Not one. We have numerous people here too that are wowed.

The key point is that in moving video, most people do not fixate on a pixel-peeped, YouTube frame grab (or a pixel-peeped native clip frame grab for that matter). Go try that on far more expensive cameras and I'd be willing to be they too would fail that test.

But hey, you've decided this camera is not for you, but you're still here despite claiming that you were leaving. Interesting.smile.gif

If so, any idea if it has the start/stop trigger in the signal? And B) do we know what the HD signal over HDMI is? Is it 8bit or 10 bit?

All thoughts/comments gratefully received!

>>A) does the camera give a HDMI feed out in HD while recording 4K internally?

Unfortunately no. In the pdf manual it says:

"While recording XAVC S 4K movies, you cannot output movies to an external monitor via an
HDMI/video connection. Only the on-screen display is output."

To me, this is a serious limitation.
