Product Description:

Sony FDRAX43 4K Ultra HD Handycam

Built for stability and productivity. Delivering superb solutions for content creators and videographers. With Balanced Optical SteadyShot to rival gimbal systems, high-resolution 4K movie recording, and high-quality sound with a unique mic, this Handycam puts professional production and simple movie sharing within anyone's grasp.


The brilliant true-to-life quality of 4K
• The latest-generation lens and image sensor enhance the spectacular detail of 4K resolution, with increased sensitivity for capturing high-quality movies in low light. High-bitrate recording in XAVC S format clearly captures even fast-moving and complex scenes.

ZEISS 20x zoom 4K-compatible lens
• The ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens has a widest angle of 26.8 mm, allowing more of a subject to fit in the frame. Capture a wide variety of scenes with the 20x optical zoom (26.8–536.0 mm; 16:9 mode), plus 30x (4K)8 or 40x (HD) Clear Image Zoom and 250x digital zoom

Exmor R CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processing engine
• The Exmor R CMOS sensor enhances image clarity, reduces noise in dark environments, and enables soft background defocusing, while the BIONZ X image processing engine achieves more naturally vivid and lifelike images and faster processing.

Super-sampled Full HD Playback on non-4K TV or device
• 4K movies automatically down-convert to Full HD to play on an HD TV.

Trimming Playback trims movie frame on TV at a touch
• Trace a finger on the LCD to trim the frame of a 4K movie playing on TV in Full HD.

Fast Intelligent AF speeds up smartly
• The AF algorithm optimizes communication between the lens and image processor for extra-fast AF, while a state-of-the-art AF range prediction system helps ensure even moving subjects remain in sharp focus.

Great sound, less noise
• Three mic capsules capture clear sound and reduce noise, enabling high-quality recording of sound with clear stereo separation.

Shoot selfies, high- and low-position shots at will
• Create the perfect vlogging setup with an optional shooting grip or microphone. The tilting LCD and grip make selfies, high- and low-position shots easy.

LCD touch control
• With all settings accessible right on the touch screen, operation is fast and simple.

Highlight Movie Maker
• Streamline your movie editing with Highlight Movie Maker. Using Dual Video Rec, the FDR-AX43 can simultaneously capture at 4K (3840 x 2160) or Full HD (1920 x 1080), and HD (1280 x 720) for both full quality storage and easy sharing. The HD (1280 x 720) resolutions use an efficient MP4 video format to create quick and automatic HD highlight movies for immediate sharing, complete with video transitions and your choice of background music

Fast frame rates, for slow-motion
• With support for high framerate capture up to 100fps/120fps in Full HD, you can create slow-motion recordings, elevating every movement in stunning detail.

See times change with 4K time-lapse movies
• With Time-lapse Capture, shoot stills of a scene over a period of time with a chosen interval between shots. The resulting images can be combined in 4K high resolution into a time-lapse movie on a PC, or viewed with a simple variable-speed preview function on the camera.
