I'm interested in the Sony FDR-AX700 camcorder. Does it have an onboard flash unit for still pictures? Or can you attach an external flash unit? If external flash, what unit is compatible with this camcorder?

Technician's Assistant: What Sony model do you have?

I'm interested in the Sony FDR-AX700 camcorder---I don't have it yet.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your FDR-AX700?

I haven't yet bought it. I need to know if it has an onboard or external flash capability.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

Another question is, how is time-lapse done with this camcorder?

No, the FDR-AX700 camcorder does not have onboard flash however you can use an external flash with it.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Part of my original question (I don't think it was conveyed), was, if it supports an external flash, I assume that the multi interface shoe has the electrical connections necessary to support firing the flash (not the power for the flash, but instead, the trigger connections).
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 3 months ago

Yes, the multi-interface shoe on top of the camcorder can be used to support an external flash and time it to fire when required.
