The Sony FDR-AX53 4K Ultra HD Camcorder is a palm-sized Handycam camcorder that combines a Zeiss 20x optical zoom lens and a high-sensitivity image sensor to produce crisp and high-quality UHD 4K video. It features Sony's Balance Optical SteadyShot image stabilization technology to help produce smooth and stable footage throughout the zoom range. You can monitor your shots using the camcorder's 3.0" touchscreen LCD or the high-resolution OLED EVF. It sports an HDMI output port for viewing footage on a field monitor. The Sony FDR-AX53 features a range of automatic image and audio options for easy point-and-shoot operation as well as enhanced manual controls that give you more creative freedom. Fast Intelligent AF achieves very speedy, accurate contrast-detection autofocus by minimizing lens motion, predicting the AF range, and accelerating lens drive, thereby improving response so you can capture more fleeting moments. Other benefits include an infrared light to take images in complete darkness, 4K time-lapse functions, and dual recording in both XAVC S/AVCHD and MP4. This camcorder is ideal for home movies and sporting events thanks to its My Voice Canceling setting, which reduces the voice volume of the camcorder's operator. Built-in WiFi/NFC support enables easy connectivity with smartphones for one-touch sharing and one-touch remote control. This camcorder is ideal for everyday video shooting.
