Delivering superb solutions for content creators and videographers

With Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ to rival gimbal systems, high-resolution 4K movie recording, and high-quality sound with a unique mic, this Handycam® puts professional production and simple movie sharing within anyone’s grasp. 

Stable while walking

The unique Balanced Optical SteadyShot stabiliser, with internal gimbal mechanism, is about 13 times more effective than other optical systems allowing shake-free shooting while walking.

Stable even while running

The Balanced Optical SteadyShot internal gimbal mechanism and image processing algorithm deliver such stable shooting that you can even shoot steady movies while running.

Stable at full zoom

The stability delivered by the gimbal and algorithm of Balanced Optical SteadyShot allows you to shoot steady movies even at full zoom where camera shake is most visible.

The brilliant true-to-life quality of 4K

The latest-generation lens and image sensor enhance the spectacular detail of 4K resolution, with increased sensitivity for capturing high-quality movies in low light.  High-bitrate recording in XAVC S format clearly captures even fast-moving and complex scenes.

ZEISS® 20x zoom 4K-compatible lens

The ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* lens has a widest angle of 26.8 mm, allowing more of a subject to fit in the frame. Capture a wide variety of scenes with the 20x optical zoom (26.8-536.0mm; 16:9 mode), plus 30x (4K) or 40x (HD) Clear Image Zoom and 250x digital zoom

Exmor R™ CMOS sensor and BIONZ X™ image processing engine

The Exmor R CMOS sensor enhances image clarity, reduces noise in dark environments, and enables soft background defocusing, while the BIONZ X image processing engine achieves more naturally vivid and lifelike images and faster processing. 

Fast Intelligent AF speeds up smartly

The AF algorithm optimises communication between the lens and image processor for extra-fast AF, while a state-of-the-art AF range prediction system helps ensure even moving subjects remain in sharp focus.

Great sound, less noise

Three mic capsules capture clear sound and reduce noise, enabling high-quality recording of sound with clear stereo separation. 

Shoot selfies, high- and low-position at will

Create the perfect vlogging setup with an optional shooting grip or microphone. The tilting LCD and grip make selfies, high- and low-position shots easy.

LCD touch control

With all settings accessible right on the touch screen, operation is fast and simple.

Highlight Movie Maker

Streamline your movie editing with Highlight Movie Maker. Using Dual Video Rec, the FDR-AX43A can simultaneously capture at 4K (3840x2160) or Full HD (1920×1080) for full quality storage, and at HD (1280x720) using an efficient MP4 video format for easy sharing. From the HD version, Highlight Movie Maker can quickly and automatically create HD highlight movies for immediate sharing - complete with video transitions and your choice of background music.

Fast frame rates, for slow-motion

With support for high framerate capture, up to 100fps/120fps in Full HD, you can create slow-motion recordings, elevating every movement in startling detail.

See times change with 4K time-lapse movies

With Time-lapse Capture, shoot stills of a scene over a period of time with a chosen interval between shots. The resulting images can be combined in 4K high resolution into a time-lapse movie on a PC, or viewed with a simple variable-speed preview function on the camera.
