    Capture ultra-smooth video on the go with the FDR-AX43 UHD 4K Handycam from Sony. This compact camcorder features a built-in gimbal with Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization and a low-light Exmor R CMOS image sensor to produce crisp, high-quality UHD 4K video or 16.6MP still photos. Record up to UHD 4K video at 24 or 30 fps using Sony's XAVC S codec at rates up to 100 Mb/s or up to 50 Mb/s 1080p HD video. Fast, intelligent autofocus tracks your subjects while keeping them sharp, and the ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* zoom lens features a 20x optical/30x digital zoom in 4K and up to 250x digital zoom in HD. The FDR-AX43's Dual Video mode enables you to record MP4 movies simultaneously with your XAVC S 4K video, perfect for playback on your phone and faster uploading to your network or the web. The Dual Video Mode also enables the use of the Highlight Movie Maker, a one-button function that creates a highlight reel of your footage you can quickly play back at an event. A 4K time-lapse mode can be used to condense your adventures or capture stunning nature or atmospheric sequences.

    Monitor your shots or vlog using the FDR-AX43's tilting, flip-out 3.0" Clear Photo touchscreen display. For large-screen playback, use the HDMI output port for connecting a larger screen. You can even 'trim' a selected portion of a 4K video or image frame to fill the screen with Full HD quality. For enhanced connectivity, the FDR-AX43 is Wi-Fi enabled, offering one-touch remote control and sharing using your compatible smartphone.

    The FDR-AX43 camcorder features a range of automatic image and audio options for easy point-and-shoot operation, as well as enhanced manual controls that offer greater creative freedom for advanced users. An assignable ring on the front of the camcorder can be assigned to control of zoom, focus, exposure, iris, shutter speed, exposure, or white balance. A rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack is included for powering the camcorder, along with an AC adapter, micro-HDMI cable, and micro-USB cable.


    1/2.5" Exmor R Low-Light CMOS Sensor

    The CMOS sensor provides enhanced sensitivity for capturing high-quality images with less noise under dark as well as bright shooting conditions.


    Built-In Gimbal with Optical Stabilization

    The FDR-AX43's integrated gimbal with Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization cushions your images against shaking and jarring, even while running or zoomed in.


    ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* Lens with 20x Optical Zoom

    The ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens features a wide 35mm-equivalent focal length of 26.8mm (in movie mode) to fit more into your shots and a 20x optical zoom range in UHD 4K. Multicoating reduces unwanted reflections, ghosting, and flares. To get you closer to the action, the zoom range can be extended using Clear Image Zoom of 30x/40x (4K/HD) using Clear Image zoom.


    Fast Intelligent AF

    The Fast Intelligent AF uses accurate contrast-detection autofocus to minimize lens motion, predicting the AF range, and accelerating lens drive so you can capture more fleeting moments.


    5.1 Channel Onboard Audio Capture

    During AVCHD recording, a 5.1 channel built-in microphone captures active sounds coming from five directions so you can experience your home movies the way you experienced them while recording. Level meters on the LCD panel provide visual monitoring of each channel's levels.

    Note: The 5.1 channel audio is only available when recording in AVCHD, so it is not available for UHD 4K recording, which uses the XAVC S codec.


    Lower Noise Audio Performance

    The microphone is designed to gather clear sound from five directions, making it possible to faithfully reproduce audio with clearly defined separation.


    High-Speed Full HD Recording

    Shoot in 1080p at 120 fps and bring it into your editing software to produce high-resolution slow-motion footage. This is useful for reviewing, in greater slow-motion detail, sports and everyday action that can occur too quickly in real time for you to see clearly.


    XAVC S, AVCHD, and MP4 Codecs

    The FDR-AX43 records 4K and HD movies in the XAVC S format, which uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 for video compression and linear PCM for audio compression, while saving files in an MP4 wrapper which allows for extensive record times and easy editing. Additionally, you can choose to record HD in AVCHD (ideal for HDTV and Blu-ray disc burning) or MP4 (ideal for sharing over the internet).


    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. This gives you a small file ready for instant sharing, plus a professional-grade file for further editing.


    4K Time-Lapse

    Capture 4K still images continuously over an extensive period of time at a selected constant interval from each shot to the next, edit the entire sequence of still images in post-production, and enjoy playback of that series of images as a time-lapse movie.


    Super-Sampled Full HD Playback

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


    Timecode and User Bit

    Timecode and User Bit can be added to movies as data elements. The Timecode function records hours/minutes/seconds/frames on image data for precise advanced video editing. The User Bit function records information such as date, time, and scene number in eight-digit arbitrary numbers, and is useful for editing movies using two or more cameras.


    0.24" OLED EVF

    The high-contrast 0.24" OLED Tru-Finder EVF features a 1555K-dot resolution and reproduces rich color and deep blacks. The optical design uses four dual-surface spherical lenses, which provide a wide 33-degree viewing angle for clear images from the center to the edge of the viewfinder.


    3" Clear Photo LCD Touchscreen Display

    The flip-out, tilting 3" Clear Photo LCD provides a crisp view perfect for viewing, playback, or vlogging.


    Highlight Movie Maker

    Highlight Movie Maker automatically selects the best scenes from your videos and creates a short MP4 highlight reel of your recorded action to share and enjoy instantly.


    Simple Connectivity to Smartphones via Wi-Fi/NFC

    Built-in Wi-Fi/NFC support enables easy connectivity with smartphones for one-touch sharing and one-touch remote control. NFC (near-field communication) provides "touch connection" convenience when transferring images to Android smartphones and tablets. Simply touch your NFC-compatible device to the camcorder to establish a connection.


    Live Streaming

    Share the adventure as it happens via Ustream live streaming. Now your circle of friends and family can share the excitement in real time by simply logging in to Ustream from anywhere. You can also link your favorite social accounts to notify your friends when you start streaming video.


    Multicamera Control

    Add a different point of view by including other camera angles to your movies. Connect to up to five compatible Sony cameras via Wi-Fi and use the camcorder's LCD to preview what the other cameras are seeing and simultaneously start recording on all synced cameras. After recording, you can use the PlayMemories Home software (available as a free download on Sony's website) to easily edit and create multiview movies.


    Intelligent Auto Mode

    Intelligent Auto mode goes a step beyond traditional auto modes by analyzing your shot and then automatically selecting the appropriate settings from ten distinct scene modes and wind noise reduction. There are 60 different combinations possible: Portrait, Baby, Tripod, Backlight, Landscape, Spotlight, Twilight, Macro, and Low light.


    Multi Interface Accessory Shoe

    Expand photographic and movie shooting possibilities by attaching optional accessories via the Multi Interface Shoe. Attach an electronic viewfinder, external flash, stereo microphone, or even a compatible remote control via the Multi Terminal.


    Trimming Playback

    Connect to your 1080p HDTV via the camcorder's HDMI output and select a specific portion of the 4K picture for playback. You can move the section using the camcorder's menu toggle and scale it using the zoom lever.


    Manual Control Ring

    Use the manual lens control ring to adjust zoom, focus, or exposure for increased image control.
