The Sony FDR-AX53 is a palm-sized Handycam camcorder that combines a Zeiss 20x optical zoom lens and a high-sensitivity image sensor to produce crisp and high-quality UHD 4K video. The Exmor R CMOS image sensor supports UHD 4K video capture at 24 or 30 fps using Sony's XAVC S codec and features pixels that are approximately 1.6x larger than the previous model for enhanced performance in all conditions, particularly low-light scenarios.

Product Features

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.
A newly developed image sensor, with pixels of approximately 1.6 times bigger size, offers superior sensitivity for capturing beautiful high-quality images with less noise under dark as well as bright shooting conditions.
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.
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 26.8mm (16:9 aspect ratio) in movie mode.
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.
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.

    Great Handycam. Picture quality is outstanding and Steady Shot provides very good results. Handycam is easy to use and also has a good range of manual options. Good value.

    This is my second Sony handycam with BOSS. The previous was outstanding and I expect the same from this unit. I was surprised it did not have internal memory though.

    I know this is a good camera from the many rave reviews but I have been unable to use it because the camera delivered to me was faulty.

    Initially, the Valley store was closed because it was moving.

    I rang up to see if I could order online but was told delivery would take 5 business days. I said didn't have 5 business days. No mention that express shipping was an option. I was given what felt like a passive-aggressive response to my statement that I didn't have 5 days: "You can always come and pick it up from our Eagle Farm location". I thanked them for walking me through my options and the call ended.

    So I jumped in an Uber and headed out to Eagle Farm. It was 3:30pm. Only once I was there in-person was I told the warehouse was shut, and that I needed to order online first at least 5 hours before pickup.

    In the end, they express shipped it out to me, and I got it on time. But the experience overall was not a great one.

    A simple miscommunication to be sure, but these things make a big difference to people's time when they're busy professionals.
