Sony FDR-AX43 UHD 4K Handycam Camcorder
Capture ultra-smooth video on the go with the FDR-AX43 UHD 4K Handycam from Sony. This compact camcorder features a built-in gimbal with Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization and a low-light Exmor R CMOS image sensor to produce crisp, high-quality UHD 4K video or 16.6MP still photos.
Record up to UHD 4K video at 24 or 30 fps using Sony's XAVC S codec at rates up to 100 Mb/s or up to 50 Mb/s 1080p HD video. Fast, intelligent autofocus tracks your subjects while keeping them sharp, and the ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* zoom lens features a 20x optical/30x digital zoom in 4K and up to 250x digital zoom in HD.
The FDR-AX43's Dual Video mode enables you to record MP4 movies simultaneously with your XAVC S 4K video, perfect for playback on your phone and faster uploading to your network or the web. The Dual Video Mode also enables the use of the Highlight Movie Maker, a one-button function that creates a highlight reel of your footage you can quickly playback at an event. A 4K time-lapse mode can be used to condense your adventures or capture stunning nature or atmospheric sequences.
Monitor your shots or vlog using the FDR-AX43's tilting, flip-out 3.0" Clear Photo touchscreen display. For large-screen playback, use the HDMI output port for connecting to a larger screen. You can even 'trim' a selected portion of a 4K video or image frame to fill the screen with Full HD quality. For enhanced connectivity, the FDR-AX43 is Wi-Fi enabled, offering one-touch remote control and sharing using your compatible smartphone.
1/2.5" Exmor R Low-Light CMOS Sensor
The CMOS sensor provides enhanced sensitivity for capturing high-quality images with less noise under dark as well as bright shooting conditions.
Built-In Gimbal with Optical Stabilization
The FDR-AX43's integrated gimbal with Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization cushions your images against shaking and jarring, even while running or zoomed in.
ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* Lens with 20x Optical Zoom
The ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens features a wide 35mm-equivalent focal length of 26.8mm (in movie mode) to fit more into your shots and a 20x optical zoom range in UHD 4K. Multicoating reduces unwanted reflections, ghosting, and flares. To get you closer to the action, the zoom range can be extended using Clear Image Zoom of 30x/40x (4K/HD) using Clear Image zoom.
Fast Intelligent AF
The Fast Intelligent AF uses accurate contrast-detection autofocus to minimize lens motion, predicting the AF range, and accelerate lens drive so you can capture more fleeting moments.
5.1 Channel Onboard Audio Capture
During AVCHD recording, a 5.1 channel built-in microphone captures active sounds coming from five directions so you can experience your home movies the way you experienced them while recording. Level meters on the LCD panel provide visual monitoring of each channel's levels.
Note: The 5.1 channel audio is only available when recording in AVCHD.
Lower Noise Audio Performance
The microphone is designed to gather clear sound from five directions, making it possible to faithfully reproduce audio with a clearly defined separation.
High-Speed Full HD Recording
Shoot in 1080p at 120 fps and bring it into your editing software to produce high-resolution slow-motion footage. This is useful for reviewing, in greater slow-motion detail, sports and everyday action that can occur too quickly in real-time for you to see clearly.
Record two movies at the same time, one in the maximum-quality XAVC S or AVCHD format and another in MP4 format. This gives you a small file ready for instant sharing, plus a professional-grade file for further editing.
Capture 4K 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.
Highlight Movie Maker
Highlight Movie Maker automatically selects the best scenes from your videos and creates a short MP4 highlight reel of your recorded action to share and enjoy instantly.
