    • Description

      Record in amazing 4K resolution with the Sony FDR-AX33 Handycam. The 29.8mm ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens with 10x optical zoom is ideal for capturing landscapes and is fine-tuned specifically for 4K. Sony's Balanced Optical SteadyShot ensures incredibly stable recording and extensive manual control is simple & intuitive for customising the settings according to shooting conditions.

      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.

      Extra-light, extra-compact body
      The FDR-AX33 is over 30% smaller and over 20% lighter than current model the FDR-AX100, making it one of the most mobile 4K camcorders on the market.

      Balanced Optical SteadyShot™
      The advanced image stabilisation enables blur-free footage, even when the recording circumstances are shaky or bumpy.

      Exmor R™ CMOS sensor
      This cutting-edge sensor enhances image clarity, reduces noise in dark environments, and enables soft background defocusing.

      BIONZ X™ image processor
      The advanced BIONZ X image processing engine helps achieve more naturally vivid and lifelike image quality as well as faster processing capabilities.

      Wide-angle ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens
      This 29.8mm wide-angle ZEISS lens providing 10x optical zoom is not only ideal for capturing grand landscapes, among a range of other scenes — it is fine-tuned specifically for 4K.

      Exceptional image quality
      By employing XAVC S format, which was developed from the XAVC format for professional use, 4K Ultra HD and high-bitrate recording of incredible quality are realised. Yet, XAVC S data is compressed so that it is more manageable for general consumers.

      20.6MP still image capture
      Sometimes you don’t need — or want — video. Put your video camera in still image mode and capture amazing high-quality single images as easily as you do with a still camera.

      Xtra Fine LCD with WhiteMagic™
      The high-precision Xtra Fine LCD features a WhiteMagic display that uses white pixels in addition to RGB pixels to boost screen brightness, allowing users to see subtle details and tones on the screen in all types of shooting environments, including outdoors in bright sunlight.

      Super-sampled Full HD playback
      Enhance your viewing experience even without a 4K television. Using super-sampling, the FDR-AX33 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 size 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 select the mode. The electronic viewfinder offers accurate image preview.

      Dual Video Recording
      Record two movies at the same time — one in the maximum-quality XAVC S or AVCHD format and another in MP4 format. That way you’ve got a small file ready for instant sharing, plus a professional-grade file for further editing.

      5.1ch microphone
      Record clear sound that accurately captures the atmosphere of the scene, and enjoy surround sound playback on your home theatre system. Level meters on the LCD panel provide visual monitoring of each channel’s levels.

      Built-in USB cable
      The built-in USB cable stowed in the hand strap is very convenient for extra-quick charging and connection to a PC, so there is no need to pack a bulky extra USB cable or AC adapter. For charging without a PC, use a compact AC-USB adapter (optional).
