    • Description

      The Sony FDR-AX43A 4K Handycam camcorder is ideal for videographers and content creators with Sony's Balanced Optical SteadyShot, 4K movie recording, Zeiss lens plus high-quality sound. The Exmor R CMOS sensor and BIONZ X processor produces professional video and image quality and the clear 5.1ch surround sound microphone gives incredible sound quality. View your recordings and creations on the 3-inch, 921K dot Clear Photo touchscreen LCD display.

      4K image quality
      Capture your movies with the stunning realism and detail of 4K (3840 x 2160). With four times more detail than Full HD, all your images are enhanced by the subtle qualities that bring images to vibrant life.

      ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* lens for 4K
      The AX43 features a custom lens, developed for the highest quality 4K imaging throughout its entire wide-to-telephoto range. The use of AA (advanced aspherical) lens elements ensures, even with the compact design, each scene is faithfully captured, while ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass delivers accurate colour without aberration. The ZEISS® T* Coating further enhances image quality by reducing unwanted reflections, including ghosting 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 26.8mm30 (16:9 aspect ratio) in movie mode.

      Extensive zoom shooting capabilities
      With the high quality, stabilised, 20x optical zoom there’s plenty of range to capture your subject. And, when shooting far away, our Clear Image Zoom uses a proprietary algorithm to deliver optical-zoom quality even at up to 40x (30x in 4K mode).

      The latest-generation image sensor exclusively for 4K
      The new generation sensor is designed for optimal 4K recording. With pixel sizes around 1.6x larger than previous models, the AX43 captures beautiful images with less noise, even in the extremes of low and bright lighting conditions.

      Balanced Optical SteadyShot
      Sony's Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ is a unique image stabiliser, with a gimbal mechanism about 13 times more effective than other optical systems28. Capture smooth, professional-looking images, even at full zoom or while running, with no need for bulky external gimbals. In HD shooting mode, it further reduces the effect of camera shake with 5-axis Intelligent Active mode compensating for vibration across pan, tilt, roll, pitch, and yaw.

      Rapid AF
      Fast Intelligent AF achieves 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.

      Realistic recording
      hanks to the three-capsule mic, the AX43 microphone gathers sound from five directions and, with advanced audio processing, results in dramatically better built-in audio recording. Around 40%29 less background noise is captured, and you’ll enjoy better stereo, or 5.1ch surround (AVCHD) separation, for more faithful capture, clearer dialogue, and more compelling soundtracks.

      5.1ch surround sound 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 for each channel level.
