Capture 4k/30p video that far exceeds HD resolution
Capture the finest details in 4k (QFHD: 3840 x 2160), 4x Full HD resolution. The XAVC S™3codec and incredibly high resolution produces vibrant and extremely realistic images. What’s more, the blazingly fast image processor is the same one employed in professional Sony models, making it possible to record 30p movies in 4K and 60p in Full HD 1080 resolution for incredibly smooth and sharp playback, with no loss in realism, even when panning the camera and shooting moving subjects.
Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization – for 4K
Now for the first time in 4K, get the ultimate in image stabilization with B.O.S.S. On standard Optical SteadyShot™ camcorders, a single “shift lens” is moved in the optical block to offset camera shake. Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ moves the entire optical block at once, maintaining the integrity of the optical path and reducing shake and distortion in videos and still photos.
Premium ZEISS® optics
Capture incredibly sharp 4K or HD with the newly developed ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* lens. Not only is this 29mm wide-angle ideal for capturing grand landscapes, you can also zoom to get you closer to the action with 10x optical zoom and 20x Clear Image Zoom.
Direct Pixel Read Out for smooth edges and color gradation
The FDR-AX33 incorporates ‘direct pixel readout’ utilizing the entire width of the image sensor without line skipping or pixel binning. Therefore in both HD and 4K video acquisition it can read and process data from every one of the sensor’s pixels. This results in smooth edges and color gradation giving you the incredible video from a tiny camera.
