Record your own stunning 4K and Full HD videos

Your videos will look stunningly lifelike in 4k Ultra HD – the Sony FDR-AX53 4K Ultra HD Camcorder records four time more detail than Full HD. Shoot gorgeous footage in bright or dark conditions with a high-quality Exmor image sensor that reduces image noise. The NIGHTSHOT function uses infrared light for recording in total darkness – ideal for social events, live shows or fun family videos.

Carl Zeiss lens with powerful 20x optical zoom

Capture wide-angle shots with a Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens that's ideal for 4K video, packing more natural detail and colours into each frame. Suitable for videos and stills, it lets you record comfortably indoors or outside, with a multilayer Zeiss lens coating to prevent reflections.

20x optical zoom lets you get in close to your subjects for great close-ups – extend the zoom range with an impressive 250x digital zoom function.

Sharper images with Optical SteadyShot

Record clear, sharp videos while walking, running or in a moving vehicle - 5-axis stabilisation enables steadier footage. Balanced Optical SteadyShot and an Intelligent Active Mode reduce camera shake, even during zoomed-in shots. Pro features give you creative control – adjust settings and frame shots using the manual dial and electronic viewfinder. Create captivating slow-motion videos with 120 fps Full HD recording. Ensure those special moments are crisply defined with fast Intelligent AF.

Advanced microphone

Great videos need great sound. Record voices, music and ambient sounds realistically via an optimised microphone that records in stereo and 5.1 surround sound formats to help recreate the atmosphere of each scene. Keep a professional feel with My Voice Cancelling, which cuts down the voice level of whoever's operating the camera.

Shoot, edit and share movies

Once you've recorded, it's time to edit and share. Highlight Movie Maker10 lets you bring out the best in your clips. Highlight key moments while recording - the camcorder will automatically sync visual transitions to your soundtrack. Let the world see what you're seeing as it happens - Live Streaming20 via USTREAM lets you send in-the-moment footage to the internet in high quality, complete with sound.

Direct videos, capture awkward angles or be in a group shot. A one-touch remote turns your smartphone or tablet into a wireless viewfinder. Transfer and upload videos and photos with NFC one-touch sharing and the PlayMemories Mobile app.

Get the most out of your camcorder

We recommend using a UHS Speed Class 3 memory card as it offers the speed you need for capturing 4K Ultra HD footage. Keep your new gear protected with a travel-friendly case or bag which will also hold your daily essentials.
