The Sony FDR-AX53 4K Handycam makes easy work of capturing truly special memories.

With a 4K Handycam at hand, the most moving memories really come alive. Incredible details and lifelike colours will take straight back to the moment.

Balanced Optical SteadyShot and Fast Intelligent AF achieve exactly the images you aim for. A new microphone structure captures ambience that’s all-surrounding. You can even play with time in motion or gain control of pro-style/manual functions.

Extra-stable movie shooting from wide to telephoto - in HD shooting mode, 5-axis Intelligent Active mode further compensates for camera shake, even when shooting while running.

A new AF algorithm optimises communication between lens and image processor for extra-fast AF, and a state-of-the-art AF range prediction system keeps the subject in sharp focus.

Create incredible slo-mo movies - record a movie at 100fps in Full HD, then slow it down to reveal startling image quality in every moment of action. With Time-lapse Capture, you can shoot stills of a scene over a period of time with a chosen interval between each shot and edit the sequence into a high-quality 4K time-lapse movie.
