This product is a worthwhile investment. The image quality and stabilization are, phenomenal. It is great for shooting videos. Furthermore, it comes with many accessories which make it a great deal overall. The product itself is compact and lightweight. All in all, it makes for a great camera.

    Tripod isn't tall enough, Not the smoothest touchscreen, Not the best for low lighting conditions

Sony has managed to surprise us once again. Their 4K FDRAX33 Handy Cam is a great investment in this price range. It features all possible aspects of high-end professional equipment and is sold for under $1000.

For the price, you get all that's expected. I'm on quite a budget right now tbh, but I love filming and editing so much I had to try this out. I've tried quite a few others quoted a bit less than this, yet none satisfied. This completed me and gave me absolute gratification.

This little camera turns out some great looking pictures. No, its not a big professional-looking unit, and thats exactly what I was looking for. I hauled around big heavy cameras for years as a videographer, so when I retired from real work I wanted something small, unimposing, but still making...

This camcorder has excellent 4K video recording, but I feel that the stills camera could use a bigger sensor for low-light photos without flash. Really excellent video stabilisation. Would be nice to be able to record HDR video.

This camera has manual audio input levels... Perfect for recorded loud rock bands...

This my 2nd FDRAX33 (the first met with an unfortunate accident). Video quality is excellent. I love the stabilization; although I am pretty steady, the internal stabilization helps hold the picture as if I'm using a tripod. In low light situations I recommend using a light source.

The camera is good and works well. No issues. It does not blow me away but works as expected. The wifi feature is a joke though. Very misleading but I researched and knew this before the purchase. The big problem is the software. PlayMemories is a complete mess.

I record concerts and this is perfect for my needs. I use an external mic so I can't speak to the internal mic, but it records audio in PCM which makes a big difference. And Sony smartly tweaked their MIS shoe to accommodate cold shoe accessories without an adapter.

Excellent in every way save the inability to connect to a LANC controller. Apparently this has been dispensed with in favour of a barely-useable iPhone app. Since it even has the connectors, tis is evidently a deliberate software disabling. Were it not for this all my ratings would be 5*

29 April 2019

Would have given it 5 stars if it were possible to connect a remote screen AND the remote control tripod I bought to go with it at the same time. With the multi use port, that is not possible like it was with my older version of the Sony Cameras.
