Sony FDR-AX53 4K

Bring memories to greater life with the 4K camcorder. Record spectacular 4K Ultra HD detail. Minimise image shake with Balanced Optical SteadyShot. Autofocus with extra-precise Fast Intelligent AF. Capture a range of stunning results using a 4K-compatible optical 20x zoom ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens with 26.8mm widest angle.

4K image quality - Shoot 4K footage that contains about four times more detail than Full HD (3840 x 2160 pixels vs. 1920 x 1080) footage, and capture more of the incredible qualities that bring images to vibrant life.

New image sensor exclusively for 4K - A newly developed image sensor, with pixels of approximately 1.6 times bigger size15, offers superior sensitivity for capturing beautiful high-quality images with less noise under dark as well as bright shooting conditions.

New ZEISS™ Vario-Sonnar T* lens for 4K - This new lens helps to depict remarkable details of high-quality 4K images throughout its wide-angle-to-telephoto range. The use of an AA (advanced aspherical) lens not only keeps depiction faithful - it also keeps the lens unit compact. ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lens helps to ensure accurate reproduction of colour. Multilayer ZEISS T* Coating further enhances image quality by reducing unwanted reflection, such as ghost and flare.

Up to 26.8mm wide angle lens - Whether you're shooting movies or still images, the class-leading wide-angle lens can help you capture more of landscapes and indoor scenes, when you don't have enough room to step back. Even without a wide conversion lens, the camcorder shoots as wide as 26.8mm1 (16:9 aspect ratio) in movie mode.

Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ - Advanced image stabilisation suppresses camera shake to stabilise a movie as it is being shot within the wide-angle-to-telephoto zoom range. In HD shooting mode, it further reduces effects of camera shake even under unstable conditions with 5-axis Intelligent Active mode compensating for vibration in five different directions, so you can shoot stable high-quality movies even while running.

Rapid AF response to capture decisive moments - Fast Intelligent AF achieves very speedy, accurate contrast-detection autofocus by minimising lens motion, predicting the AF range, and accelerating lens drive, thereby improving response so you can capture more fleeting moments.

Extensive zoom shooting capabilities - 20x optical zoom lens and Clear Image Zoom of 30x/40x (for 4K/HD) allow you to shoot faraway subjects and capture memorable moments.

Realistic recording of voices, music and other sound - Its new structural design enables the microphone to gather, from five directions, clearer sound with approx. 40%2515 less noise and twice as effective15 2ch stereo (for XAVC S shooting) and three times as effective15 5.1ch surround (for AVCHD shooting) sound performance. This makes it possible to faithfully reproduce audio with clearly defined separation.

High Speed REC in Full HD for high-quality slow motion - Shoot in Full HD at 120/100fps (NTSC/PAL), edit the footage after shooting, and the resulting slow-motion images of the movie will look startlingly smooth and sharp in playback. This is excellent for reviewing, in greater slow-motion detail, sports and everyday action that can occur too quickly in real time for you to see clearly.

4K Time-lapse Capture - You can capture 4K size still images continuously over an extensive period of time at a selected constant interval from each shot to the next, edit the entire sequence of still images in post-production, and enjoy playback of that series of images as a time-lapse movie.

Super-sampled Full HD playback - Enhance your viewing experience even without a 4K television. Using super-sampling, the camera automatically down-converts 4K footage to exceptionally detailed Full HD.

Trimming Playback - You can select a specific portion of the picture and play it back in Full HD, thanks to 4K high resolution. Also, you can change trimming size16 with the zoom lever or on-screen display icon.

Advanced shooting features - Enjoy total customisation with ergonomic manual controls. Use the intuitive multi-purpose manual ring to adjust zoom, focus, exposure, IRIS, shutter speed, AE shift, or white balance shift mode after using the manual button to selec
