      Product information
      Top features: 

      - Record your own stunning 4K and Full HD videos 

      - Carl Zeiss lens with powerful 20x optical zoom for beautiful long-range shots 

      - Sharper images with Optical SteadyShot stabilisation and fast autofocus 

      - Advanced microphone allows for 5.1 sound recording and cleaner audio 

      - Shoot, edit and share movies with Highlight Movie Maker10, live streaming and more 

      Record your own stunning 4K and Full HD videos

      Your videos will look stunningly lifelike in 4K Ultra HD – the Sony FDR-AX53 4K Ultra HD Camcorder records four times more detail than Full HD. Shoot gorgeous footage in bright or dark conditions with a high-quality Exmor image sensor that reduces image noise. The NIGHTSHOT function uses infrared light for recording in total darkness – ideal for social events, live shows or fun family videos.

      To make your life that bit easier this camera also comes with a durable carry case with space for the camera and accessories, and a rechargeable battery pack. So you can keep it safe on the move and have a spare battery so you can shoot all day without running out of power.

      Carl Zeiss lens with powerful 20x optical zoom

      Capture wide-angle shots with a Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens that's ideal for 4K video, packing more natural detail and colours into each frame. Suitable for videos and stills, it lets you record comfortably indoors or outside, with a multilayer Zeiss lens coating to prevent reflections.

      The FDR-AX53's 20x optical zoom lets you get in close to your subjects for great close-ups – extend the zoom range with an impressive 250x digital zoom function.

      Sharper images with Optical SteadyShot

      Record clear, sharp videos while walking, running or in a moving vehicle - 5-axis stabilisation enables steadier footage. Balanced Optical SteadyShot and an Intelligent Active Mode reduce camera shake, even during zoomed-in shots.

      Pro features give you creative control – adjust settings and frame shots using the manual dial and electronic viewfinder. Create captivating slow-motion videos with 120 fps Full HD recording. Ensure those special moments are crisply defined with fast Intelligent AF.

      Advanced microphone

      Great videos need great sound. Record voices, music and ambient sounds realistically via an optimised microphone that records in stereo and 5.1 surround sound formats to help recreate the atmosphere of each scene. Keep a professional feel with My Voice Cancelling, which cuts down the voice level of whoever's operating the camera.

      Shoot, edit and share movies

      Once you've recorded, it's time to edit and share. Highlight Movie Maker10 lets you bring out the best in your clips. Highlight key moments while recording - the camcorder will automatically sync visual transitions to your soundtrack. Let the world see what you're seeing as it happens - Live Streaming20 via USTREAM lets you send in-the-moment footage to the internet in high quality, complete with sound.

      Direct videos, capture awkward angles or be in a group shot. A one-touch remote turns your smartphone or tablet into a wireless viewfinder. Transfer and upload videos and photos with NFC one-touch sharing and the PlayMemories Mobile app.

      Get the most out of your camcorder

      We recommend using a UHS Speed Class 3 memory card as it offers the speed you need for capturing 4K Ultra HD footage. Keep your new gear protected with a travel-friendly case or bag which will also hold your daily essentials.

      The camcorder is great but it's highly complex trying to transfer film to a laptop or send it on an email etc because it's 4K. Incompatible with any device I've tried.
