4K image quality Shoot 4K footage that contains about four times more detail than Full HD (3840 x 2160 pixels vs. 1920 x 1080) footage, and capture more of the incredible qualities that bring images to vibrant life.

Extra-light, extra-compact body The FDR-AX33 is over 30% smaller and over 20% lighter than current model the FDR-AX100, making it the most mobile 4K camcorder on the market.

Balanced Optical SteadyShot Our advanced image stabilization enables blur-free footage, even when the recording circumstances are shaky or bumpy.

Advanced shooting features Enjoy total customization with ergonomic manual controls. Use the intuitive multi-purpose manual ring to adjust zoom, focus, exposure, IRIS, shutter speed, AE shift, or white balance shift mode after using the manual button to select the mode. The electronic viewfinder offers accurate image preview.

Super-sampled Full HD playback Enhance your viewing experience even without a 4K television. Using super-sampling, the FDR-AX33 automatically down-converts 4K footage to exceptionally detailed Full HD.

Trimming Playback You can select a specific portion of the picture and play it back in Full HD, thanks to 4K high resolution. Also, you can change trimming size with the zoom lever or on-screen display icon.

Multi Camera Control More shots mean more editing opportunities. Easily record footage from a variety of angles, whether using cameras mounted directly to the FDR-AX33 or triggered wirelessly. Multi Camera Control makes it easy to sync shooting settings on all devices.

Live-streaming via Ustream (currently IBM Cloud Video) From performances to sports events, some things are best seen in real time. Share scenes as they happen with high-quality picture and sound.

Highlight Movie Maker A versatile function to streamline movie editing, Highlight Movie Maker offers several time-saving features. Add highlight points to key moments while recording, and let the camcorder automatically sync your transitions to your chosen soundtrack.

Exmor R® CMOS sensor This cutting-edge sensor enhances image clarity, reduces noise in dark environments, and enables soft background defocusing.

BIONZ X image processor The advanced BIONZ X image processing engine helps achieve more naturally vivid and lifelike image quality as well as faster processing capabilities.

Wide-angle ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar® T* lens This 29.8 mm wide-angle ZEISS® lens providing 10x optical zoom is not only ideal for capturing grand landscapes, among a range of other scenes - it is fine-tuned specifically for 4K.

Exceptional image quality By employing XAVC S format, which was developed from the XAVC format for professional use, 4K Ultra HD and high-bitrate recording of incredible quality are realized. Yet, XAVC S data is compressed so that it is more manageable for general consumers.

20.6 MP still image capture Sometimes you don't need-or want-video. Put your video camera in still image mode and capture amazing high-quality single images as easily as you do with a still camera.

Superb night shooting This feature uses infrared light to take pictures even in complete darkness. By using NIGHTSHOT, parents can easily capture children's cute sleeping faces.

Motion Shot Video This convenient feature allows playback of a dramatic sequence of superimposed images to trace every split second of action, a powerful tool for analyzing sports motion on screen. During playback, you can adjust the interval between images, or pause to capture still images to share with friends.

Dual Video Recording Record two movies at the same time - one in the maximum-quality XAVC S or AVCHD format and another in MP4 format. That way you've got a small file ready for instant sharing, plus a professional-grade file for further editing.

Face Detection and Smile Shutter Use Face Detection to optimize focus, exposure and color for people who are the most important subject of a shot. You can prioritize a subject's face by touching it on the LCD. And with Smile Shutter, the FDR-AX33 can also automatically capture still shots of great (but fleeting) smiles, even while recording movies.

Lock-on AF Enhances the tracking of moving subjects by using the optimal AF point at all times, and adjusting the target frame size to match your subject's characteristics. Thanks to advances in phase-detection AF, it's now more accurate than ever - so lock on and shoot fast-moving targets with precision.

5.1 ch microphone Record clear sound that accurately captures the atmosphere of the scene, and enjoy surround sound playback on your home theater system. Level meters on the LCD panel provide visual monitoring of each channel's levels.

Auto Wind Noise Reduction Using an advanced sound-analysis algorithm, this feature eliminates wind noise - the biggest culprit of bad outdoor audio.

My Voice Canceling Reduce the intensity of behind-camera sounds, whether you are talking to or cheering on your subject as you shoot.

Golf Shot Analyze your swing with no need for fancy equipment. Golf Shot mode lets you capture video and stills of each step of your swing.

Xtra Fine LCD with WhiteMagic The high-precision Xtra Fine LCD features a WhiteMagic display that uses white pixels in addition to RGB pixels to boost screen brightness, allowing users to see subtle details and tones on the screen in all types of shooting environments, including outdoors in bright sunlight.

Built-in USB cable The built-in USB cable stowed in the hand strap is very convenient for extra-quick charging and connection to a PC, so there is no need to pack a bulky extra USB cable or AC adapter. For charging without a PC, use a compact AC-USB adapter (optional).

New software is now available. Power up your camera to further enhance shooting ease.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
