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.

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...

AX33 4k Camcorder

 

Purchased this for viewing our band as other cheaper cameras and camcorders were poor in low light. First impression is this is good. 1st gig came out really well. Light levels great and camera did not "hunt" to focus like the others. Sound quality...

Disappointing

 

Picture quality excellent, but ergonomics awful. Heavy, bulky and awkward to hold. Fine if using tripod/monopod. Returned product as I have difficulties with my hands and I just couldn't hold it properly

Not the complete package

 

Still getting to know the camcorder so jury is out. Disappointed to find that I cannot fix the speed of the zoom, unlike my previous Cannon camcorder. It is also 100 grams heavier, and lacks any safety strap around the neck. Still need to create a new...

Good all round camera.

 

I purchased this about 3 weeks ago. Good all round 4k camera. The only major failing is that after paying out for it I then had to purchase a SD card otherwise the camera was useless. Sony are very miserly for not including a SD card.
