Sony FDR-AX33 4K Handycam - Camcorder

4K performance in your palm.

From crawling across the floor to striding across the stage, life is full of powerful moments. Capture them in ultra-detailed 4K quality with the compact FDR-AX33.

  • The FDR-AX33 is over 30% more compact and portable than the diminutive FDR-AX100 that preceded it. Yet, its extensive manual control is simple and intuitive for customising settings as desired according to shooting conditions.
  • By controlling the optical path from lens to sensor as one floating unit, our advanced Balanced Optical SteadyShot ensures incredibly stable recording.Achieve supremely stable footage from wide angle to telephoto. Our latest image stabilisation is 13x more effective compared to that of an Optical SteadyShot model in standard mode.
  • Blow them away with rich 4K

    With four times more pixels than Full HD (3840 x 2160 vs. 1920 x 1080), 4K resolution offers incredibly lifelike image detail.

  • Shoot longer, shoot better

    Not all images are recorded equally. Through clever digital compression, the XAVC S format enables extended 4K high-bitrate recording of up to 100Mbps.

  • Large Exmor R™ CMOS sensor The sensor absorbs ample light to capture the true ambience of indoor and low-light shooting situations.

Very easy to use, full auto works a treat, image quality at 4K is stunning. Bought this AX53 camera as a backup camera to my Sony AX100, mainly for the BOSS stabilizer, which is very impressive.
Would have liked more manual control for the individual settings, Aperture, Shutter and Gain, you can only use one of these at a time, the other settings stay on Auto.
