A Review of the Sony 4K UHD Video Recording FDRAX33 Handycam Camcorder

 

After releasing last year's FDR-AX100 4K camcorder, which was one absolutely superb piece of 4K video recording technology for the prosumer level, Sony has taken the idea of a budget-friendly 4K mini-camcorder to an even higher (or should we say lower,...

Excellent price ; Absolutely superb BOSS image stabilization ; Zoom during 4K playback ; Tiltable OLED viewfinder ; Excellent color rendering ; Great price ; Easy to use

No internal memory ; Weak CMOS sensor ; Very slight oversaturation of some colors in video

We absolutely recommend the Sony FDR-AX33. This camcorder is built with the average-joe user in mind and with a price to match but it comes with a package of features and specs that even professional videographers could appreciate under certain filming...

Sony's prosumer 4K AX33 camcorder expands stabilization, shrinks size for CES 2015

 

The camcorder is smaller overall than both the AX100 and the 1-inch HD CX900, both which remain in the line. This stems in part from the smaller 20-megapixel 1/2.3-inch (7.8mm) sensor it uses, as well as some changes to the design; for instance, it...

The FDR-AX33 will be available in February.

Lousy manuals

 

Recording formats are a mine field & Sony blindfold you when trying to get through it ! Help Guide, such as it is, is only available on the web - how long will it be retained for users ?

Feature packed, great camcorder

 

Ive always used Sony camcorders because I've always had excellent results, so having bought a 4k tv it was time to invest in a new camcorder. Having read numerous reviews I decided on the AX 33, based largely on the steady shot. In use it performs...
