Dive into an realm of rich colour, sharp clarity and dizzying detail with Sony's 4K Ultra HD-ready FDR AX53 Handycam. Powered by an advanced Exor R CMOS sensor, this exceptional camcorder will make your home videos look like they came from Hollywood. 4K features four times the pixels as regular Full HD, giving eye-popping recording results. With Sony's Balanced Optical Steadyshot function, 5.1ch microphone and Wi-Fi compatibility, the FDR AX53 is an awe-inspiring feat for amateur film-makers.
Stunning 4K Ultra HD Break new ground in video vibrancy with 4K Ultra HD. With 3840 x 2160 pixels quadrupling Full HD's 1920 x 1080, the resolution has detail you'll scarcely believe. 4K opens up other features like Trimming Playback, where you select a specific portion of a clip and play it in Full HD, and Super-Scaled Full HD Playback, where 4K content is down-graded to sparkling Full HD on non-4K TVs.
Powerful & Professional Shooting Quality With its cutting-edge Exmor R CMOS Sensor, you'll get sumptuous image clarity, reduced noise in dark settings and soft background defocusing for sharper focus on the subject. Beside that is the lightning-fast BIONZ X image processor, which delivers vibrant colours and lifelike textures. Its 5.1ch microphone gives brilliantly balanced sound that would embrace the atmosphere of your scene.
Wonderful Wide-Angle Lens As well as being fine-tuned for 4K, the 29.8mm Wide-Angle ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T Lens gives 10x optical zoom and a focal range large enough to capture sweeping landscapes with delightful detail.
8.29MP Still Image Quality This doesn't just record crisp video, it also takes high-grade pictures. The 8.29 megapixel capture will give your pictures astounding depth
Highly-Stable Picture & Sound Sony's advanced Balanced Optical SteadyShot technology ensures blur-free and steady footage, so you can leave your tripod at home. Even in shaky situations like car rides, the camcorder will level out the footage for a crisply-level clip. Other features like the Auto Wind Noise Reduction, which eliminates wind noise for better outdoor shooting, Lock-on Autofocus for subject tracking, and My Voice Cancelling to clamp down on behind-camera noise, will give your videos incredible quality.

- 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
