Why buy the Sony FDR-AX43 4K Handycam?

The Sony FDR-AX43 is a 4K Ultra HD Handycam Camcorder. This compact video camera is perfect for capturing ultra-smooth, true to life, high-resolution video. A 20x optical zoom lens has a great range for all styles of shooting.

 High-quality audio recording will also create a clear and immersive experience. Plus, easy uploading and sharing features are at the push of a few buttons. Whether you take it on your travels, Vlog, capture family moments, need a user-friendly camera for work or anything between; this camera will give superb results with ease.


Super steady shooting

Sony’s one of a kind Balanced Optical SteadyShot features an internal gimbal mechanism. This superb feature is 13x more impactful than other optical systems  and allows you to create a smooth, professional-looking video without heaps of additional equipment. This is also effective when you’re running or are filming on unsteady terrain.

 

How stable is the FDR-AX43 at full zoom?

With its 20x optical zoom and 30x/40x 4K/HD Clear Image Zoom; you may be thinking that you’ll need a tripod. The Balanced Optical SteadyShot plus the built in gimbal will drastically reduce shake, even when handheld.


Create stunning 4K movies

Designed to maximise your potential from the latest display technology, the FDR-AX43 will capture Ultra HD 4K video.

By pairing the latest lens and image sensor technology, the video camera will produce high detailed 4K resolution. High sensitivity means it will produce excellent results in low lighting conditions too. High bitrate XAVC S format recording will pick out all the detail even against a complex backdrop and subject.


High-performance ZEISS optics

The camcorder features a ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens. ZEISS is highly renowned for being one of the top lensmakers in the world. Sony has collaborated with ZEISS on many excellent camera and lens products making them a superb choice for photographers and videographers alike. The lens ensures that you get the best results from the overall capability of this camera. 

With a wide-angle of 26.8mm, you can take in all the scenery in your frame. The 20x optical zoom allows you to reach further (equivalent to 536mm in 16:9 mode). Want to reach even further? A 30x (4k) and 40x (HD) Clear Image Zoom plus 250x digital zoom gives endless possibilities.


Powerful Exmor R image sensor and BIONZ X Processor Engine

The camera houses a high powered Exmor R CMOS Image Sensor. This produces sharp images and excellent noise reduction in poor lighting conditions. The BIONZ X processing engine offers up natural, vivid true to life imaging while maintaining high processing performance throughout the camera's functions.


Rapid, reliable Autofocus

The fast intelligent  AF algorithm of the camera has been optimised for a strong connection between your lens and Exmor R Image Processor. This gives the camera fast and precise autofocus capabilities. An advanced AF range prediction feature helps to track moving objects keeping them in sharp focus.


Rich sound recording

The camera has 3 inbuilt mic capsules. These offer a clear and detailed sound. They will offer reduced noise and a clear definition between each stereo channel. 

The camera also features headphone and microphone jacks to allow you to master your sound as required with the use of shotgun, lapel and other types of external microphones. See our custom bundle options above for inspiration. (Please note that the camera has a stereo minijack port so an adapter may be required).


LCD Touch Screen Display

An easy to navigate user interface is presented on a vivid 7.5 cm 3.0 type Clear Photo LCD 460,800 dot touchscreen.


Up to nearly 4 hours of recording time

The AX43 uses a high-capacity Sony NP-FV70A battery to enable recording for long periods up to 235 mins. The battery is interchangeable and spares can be added to your order in our bundle section above.


Cinematic slow motion and time-lapses

High framerate shooting up to 100fps/120fps in Full HD is possible with the FDR-AX43. This means you can capture creative, awe-inspiring slow-motion videos in high detail.

A 4K time-lapse option means you can capture a long series of stills at an interval of your choice. Mount the camera on a tripod, or set it down securely and let it capture a landscape or a city or anything of your choice. The 4K image frames are then combined into a timelapse movie. Perfect for an establishing shot or social media content.


I don’t have a 4K display, why do I need to shoot 4K?

One of the benefits is future-proofing where your videos will be at the peak of resolution for years to come. Not only this, but the 4K movies will also automatically down-convert into Full HD. Plug the camera into a non-4K-device and the camera will deliver the highest resolution HD output.


Easy Connectivity

Connect the camera to your Android or iOS device using the Sony Imaging Edge mobile app. From here, you can easily share and upload your videos to the wider world.


Not a fan of video editing?

No problem! The Highlight Movie Maker feature can do the hard work for you. Using a Dual Video Recording in 4K and Full HD; the camera stores both formats. 

From there - the camera can take an MP4 formatted HD video and create a quick highlight reel using clips of your choice. It even adds transitions and background music to give it that finishing touch.

Although I have had this camera since last November, the lock down, the weather and other priorities have meant that I have only done a little indoor testing do far. Come the Spring and easing of lockdown and I'll be in a better position to report back to you.

The quality of this camcorder in regard to image quality, stabalisation, battery length is great. But the real downside is the associated software. I would like to use this camera for youtube content creation. It would be so useful to have the option to use the item also as a webcam, yet sony doesn't support software for this as it does for other cameras. I purchased a capture card to help, but it was still glitchy, continually switching off midstream despite having changes settings.

I purchased this recently as I am a golfer and a musician (not both at the same time obviously) and I wanted to record some music and my golf swing. I've only tried the music up to now and whilst the instructions do say that the reproductive quality when recoding in 4K may not be brilliant that I found to be an understatement. When trying to replay my music on my laptop the 4K version is unwatchable as there is juddering and drop out on the tape to make it useless. It does replay very well through my 4K television but it was the laptop that I needed it to play properly through. Overall not a good purchase for why I bought it.
