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...

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

Sony Camcorder

 

After previous camcorders and video cameras over many years, I purchased the Sony AX33 and was overwhelmed with the image output, as was other people that viewed my results on the net.
