yes Ken that number 64 is on the low side and has me concerned. The 55 I have now, even with 120 zones, will show halos, very noticeable when displaying test patterns like a window signal. So I am waiting, based on the universal praise regarding their PQ. As to the size, we have a den, using it as our TV room. So I have a upper size limit when watching SD or HD material. Nice set up, the window has shutters so the ambient light can be near zero. I have a bias light and...
As to a TV. am waiting for the VIZIO 65" P series supposedly available in fall. Then there is their reference series. Both have back lighting, the reference has 384 zones, the P has only 64. Anounced price for the P 65 around 2K. They had excellent reviews at the CES. Might be worthwhile looking into I own a Vizio 55" now, nearly a thousand LED's,120 Zones, we watch from 6 to 10 feet distance. Outstanding PQ Gene
Greenwave, One of my Platinum standards for PQ has been a segment called 4K Flowers,shot with the 'RED ONE". And under very controlled conditions. I can say, that according to my eyes, you have replaced that standard with your AX100 sequences. I can't believe that I own a camera that is capable, in the right hands, to produce such stunning videos! And I will try to take a tripod along on our next trip, what a difference that makes. Thanks for posting this. Eugene
Batteries again. It takes at least a 100 million investment in Asia to start a Li-I battery factory so it is not a basement operation.

So I take my chances and hope for the best. The post office will not accept Li-I batteries unless they are in a device like a cell phone....
Nice to have a bottomless valet. I have used 3rd party batteries for many many years on Canon, Sony and Panasonic camcorders not one went bad. With Sony one has to be careful, there appears to be a chip in the battery that tells the camera if the battery is not a Sony product. So I make sure to buy only battery brands for Sony products that others have tested. With my still and video cameras I must have had at least 20 batteries. After all B+H sells after market...
