The Sony FDR-AX53 is a palm-sized Handycam that combines a Zeiss 20x optical zoom lens and a high-sensitivity image sensor to produce crisp and high-quality UHD 4K video. Here are some of the other standout features of this camera:

  • Features Sony's Balance Optical SteadyShot image stabilization technology to help produce smooth and stable footage throughout the zoom range.
  • Monitor your shots using the 3" touchscreen LCD or the high-resolution OLED EVF.
  • Micro HDMI out for viewing footage on a field monitor.
  • A large 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 for very speedy, accurate contrast-detection autofocus with minimal lens motion so you can capture fleeting moments.
  • Photo support in JPEG up to 16.6MP (5440 x 3056).

With benefits such as built-in WiFi/NFC support for easy connectivity with smartphones, 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 an ideal choice for home movies, sporting events, and just everyday recording of special moments.
