Delivering superb results that are ideal for vloggers and videographers, the AX43 Sony Handycam captures your world with superb colour and detail. 4K UHD footage combines with the superior audio of a multi-capsule microphone. Balanced Optical SteadyShot with an internal gimbal mechanism keeps your footage sharp and steady, even if you’re shooting while walking or running. With a host of features and in-camera processing tech, it’s a brilliantly adept content-creation tool, putting professional production in your hands.
Balanced Optical SteadyShot with internal gimbal
Be sure of extra steady movie footage, even when walking, even when running! With an internal gimbal mechanism, camera shake is suppressed so your content is always stable and sharp, so you can film confidently on the move, and at extended zoom.
The integrated microphone unit on top of the AX43 actually houses three separate mics, allowing for high quality recording of your audio, with reduced background noise, and clear stereo separation. It’s great for achieving better audio quality, without the need for an external mic.
4K Ultra High Definition
This Handycam captures the hyper-detailed smoothness of 4K UHD resolution (3840 x 2160p), while increased sensitivity means footage is just as detailed in low light settings.
Exmor R CMOS sensor
An Exmor R CMOS Sensor gives superb clarity, reduced noise in darker settings, and soft background defocusing for sharper subjects. A fast BIONZ X processor delivers vibrant colour and lifelike textures at speed, and you can use the AX43 to capture stills too, with 8.29 megapixels of fine detail. Fast Intelligent Autofocus means speedy, accurate contrast-detection AF for consistent clarity with moving subjects.
20x Optical zoom ZEISS Lens
Allow more of the subject into the frame with an angle up to 26.8mm (35mm equivalent). And zero in on far-away subjects with sharp detail with 20x optical zoom, and 30x/40x (4K/HD) Clear Image Zoom.
Wi-Fi & NFC for easy sharing
Built in Wi-Fi & NFC enables easy sharing of your content to your smart phone. One-touch sharing lets you transfer your videos and photos to NFC-enabled smart phones, or One-touch remote lets you use the phone as a viewfinder or remote control.

- Zoom (digital)
Enlarges video captured by the optical zoom and makes it seem even closer. This involves zooming in on an existing image, so it gives slightly less detailed results than an equivalent optical zoom
- Zoom (optical)
Allows you to zoom the image closer to the subject. Optical zooms feature physically moving lens components, so it maintains the image quality as you zoom in. Digitial zooms essentially crop an existing image, so may lose image quality as they zoom in
