A super bright 3-inch Xtra Fine LCD touchscreen allows you to easily frame and review your footage quickly. This Handycam is feature rich and easy to use with intuitive controls and menus. All of that is packed into a small, palm-sized body that’s convenient to have with you anywhere.
4K Ultra High Definition Video
Thanks to its fast onboard Bionz X image processing engine, the Sony FDRAX33 Handycam can produce beautiful, detailed 4K footage at 24fps or 30fps that delivers vivid image quality and smooth playback. It can also record Full HD 1080p video at up to 60fps, and snap 20.6 megapixel still images.
Exmor R CMOS Sensor Onboard
The advanced Exmor R CMOS sensor enhances image clarity and helps to reduce noise when shooting in low light or other difficult lighting conditions, bringing out the best in your images. It also allows for soft background defocusing, further extending your creative options.
Direct Pixel Read Out for High Quality Video
With direct pixel readout taking advantage of the entire width of the image sensor, line skipping or pixel binning is minimised. Data is processed from each sensor pixel when shooting in both HD and 4K, resulting in high quality video with good colour gradation and smooth edges.
Carl Zeiss 10x Optical Zoom Lens
A built-in Carl Zeiss Vario Sonnar T* Lens provides 10x Optical Zoom and 20x Clear Image zoom that allows you to get closer to distant subjects. The lens has a 29.8mm wide angle view in movie mode, allowing you to frame better and fit more into your shots, from epic landscapes to big group shots.
Advanced Image Stabilisation
Sony’s Balanced Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode compensates for vibrations by moving the entire optical block to maintain a steady optical path. This helps reduces camera shake and vignetting, allowing you to capture stable, blur-free footage even when walking or running.
3-Inch LCD Touchscreen Display
The 3.0-inch Xtra Fine LCD touchscreen offers intuitive use, sharp images, and excellent playback. Sony’s WhiteMagic technology increases the screen brightness that makes it easy to view, frame, focus, and adjust settings even when shooting outdoors in harsh sunlight.
OLED Electronic Viewfinder
A high-contrast 0.24-inch OLED Tru-Finder EVF features 1,555K-dot resolution and four spherical lenses for a wide 33 degree viewing angle to give you clear, accurate image previews and playback from the centre all the way to the edges.
Wi-Fi Connectivity and Live Stream Ready
With Wi-Fi, you can use your smartphone as a remote for the Handycam. It’s also fast and easy to connect and share files with your mobile devices. NFC allows one touch connection to Android devices. Using Ustream, anything captured on your FDR-AX33 camcorder can be instantly live streamed to family and friends or linked to your social media accounts, perfect for vlogging.
XAVC S, AVCHD, and MP4 Codecs Available
3 recording formats are available, including AVCHD or MP4 format, which is perfect for sharing online. The XAVC S codec is ideal for professional quality 4K and HD movies, compressing and storing data in an MP4 wrapper for more recording time and easier editing. Switch between all 3 formats or use dual recording to capture XAVC S and MP4 at the same time.
Dolby Digital 5.1 Channel Microphone
The Dolby Digital 5.1 channel mic picks up sounds from all around you, capturing the moment as you remember it. Auto Gain Control Limit and Auto Wind Noise Reduction help reduce disturbances that might impact audio quality. The My Voice Cancelling feature reduces the impact of your own voice on recordings, whether you’re speaking to your subject, or cheering on your favourite sports team.
Intelligent AUTO Mode and Lock-on Autofocus
Advanced Intelligent AUTO analyses your shot and chooses the best settings from a range of different scene modes including wind noise reduction. Lock-on AF offers the ability to track moving subjects using an optimal autofocus point that adjusts the frame size to match their characteristics.
Multipurpose Manual Ring
The manual control ring on the Sony FDRAX33Handycam can be customised, offering access to a range of different settings you use often. Choose from zoom control, exposure, shutter speed, and more, once the manual button is used to select the appropriate mode.
Multiple Camera Control
Multi-Camera Control allows you to connect several Sony cameras to the FDR-AX33 directly or via Wi-Fi to record simultaneously from various angles, providing you with more creative options when editing. Feeds from all connected cameras can be previewed on the camcorder’s LCD screen.
Highlight Movie Maker and Trimming Playback
The Highlight Movie Maker function automatically selects key moments and creates an MP4 highlight clip, soundtrack included. Connect the FDR-AX33 to your 1080p HDTV and choose specific portions of 4K video for playback with the menu toggle, scaling intuitively with the zoom lever.
Extremely Compact Design with Multi-Interface Accessory Shoe
Atop the Sony FDR-AX33 4K Handycam is a Multi Interface Shoe for attaching optional accessories, like an external flash or microphone, to enhance the camcorder’s performance considerably. The incredibly compact size and huge list of features make the camcorder an ideal video solution that delivers professional quality results, without all the added bulk and confusion.
