Sony FDR-AX43 UHD 4K Handycam Camcorder

Built for stability and productivity

Delivering superb solutions for content creators and videographers
With Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ to rival gimbal systems, high-resolution 4K movie recording, and high-quality sound with a unique mic, this Handycam® puts professional production and simple movie sharing within anyone’s grasp.

Stable while walking
The unique Balanced Optical SteadyShot stabiliser, with internal gimbal mechanism, is about 13 times more effective than other optical systems, allowing shake-free shooting while walking.

Stable even while running
The Balanced Optical SteadyShot internal gimbal mechanism and image processing algorithm deliver such stable shooting that you can even shoot steady movies while running.

Stable at full zoom
The stability delivered by the gimbal and algorithm of Balanced Optical SteadyShot allows you to shoot steady movies even at full zoom, where camera shake is most visible.

The brilliant true-to-life quality of 4K
The latest-generation lens and image sensor enhance the spectacular detail of 4K resolution, with increased sensitivity for capturing high-quality movies in low light. High-bitrate recording in XAVC S format clearly captures even fast-moving and complex scenes.

ZEISS® 20x zoom 4K-compatible lens
The ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* lens has a widest angle of 26.8 mm, allowing more of a subject to fit in the frame. Capture a wide variety of scenes with the 20x optical zoom (26.8–536.0 mm; 16:9 mode), plus 30x (4K)8 or 40x (HD) Clear Image Zoom and 250x digital zoom.

Exmor R™ CMOS sensor and BIONZ X™ image processing engine
The Exmor R CMOS sensor enhances image clarity, reduces noise in dark environments, and enables soft background defocusing, while the BIONZ X image processing engine achieves more naturally vivid and lifelike images and faster processing.

Super-sampled Full HD Playback on non-4K TV or device
4K movies automatically down-convert to Full HD to play on an HD TV.

Trimming Playback trims movie frame on TV at a touch
Trace a finger on the LCD to trim the frame of a 4K movie playing on TV in Full HD.

High-performance AF

Fast Intelligent AF speeds up smartly
The AF algorithm optimises communication between the lens and image processor for extra-fast AF, while a state-of-the-art AF range prediction system helps ensure even moving subjects remain in sharp focus.

Sound recording with superb natural presence

Great sound, less noise
Three mic capsules capture clear sound and reduce noise, enabling high-quality recording of sound with clear stereo separation.

Ideal for content creators and videographers

Shoot selfies, high- and low-position shots at will
Create the perfect vlogging setup with an optional shooting grip or microphone. The tilting LCD and grip make selfies, high- and low-position shots easy.

LCD touch control
With all settings accessible right on the touch screen, operation is fast and simple.

Serious audio connectivity
Headphone and microphone jacks are provided, for premium audio connectivity.

Battery life
The AX43 uses a high-capacity battery to enable recording for long periods. Up to 235 mins continuous recording time with the supplied battery.

One-touch remote and one-touch sharing
Connect NFC-capable Android devices with a simple touch, for remote control, viewing and image transfer using the Imaging Edge Mobile app. Easy manual pairing for iOS and other devices is also available.

Special effects, for high-impact movies

Highlight Movie Maker
Streamline your movie editing with Highlight Movie Maker. Using Dual Video Rec, the FDR-AX43 can simultaneously capture at 4K (3840 x 2160) or Full HD (1920 x 1080), and HD (1280 x 720) for both full-quality storage and easy sharing. The HD (1280 x 720) resolution uses an efficient MP4 video format to create quick and automatic HD highlight movies for immediate sharing, complete with video transitions and your choice of background music.

Fast frame rates, for slow-motion
With support for high framerate capture, up to 100fps/120fps in Full HD, you can create slow-motion recordings, elevating every movement in startling detail.

See times change with 4K time-lapse movies
With Time-lapse Capture, shoot stills of a scene over a period of time with a chosen interval between shots. The resulting images can be combined in 4K high resolution into a time-lapse movie on a PC, or viewed with a simple variable-speed preview function on the camera.
