overall the camera shoots excellent video in low and high speed frame mode. the start up is less then 3 seconds from power button/opening side viewer and it is recording. play back is easy to access when quick reviews are needed.

Good quality images and easy to use. Feels a bit plastic so not sure how robust it will be. Wish I'd gone for a model with an eye peice viewfinder as difficult to see the screen in bright areas.

21 March 2024

I had an FDR AX43 for about 3 years and now I have bought an AX43A. The screen is brighter and higher resolution on the 43A.

Wasn't too sure if this camera would be able to record audio directly from a mixing desk so that we could get a good all round recording of the band. It did the job. Picture quality was excellent. Sound quality via the cameras own microphone was ok but for the price it is as good as you can get.

I bought a couple of weeks ago to film my clown shows and it works perfectly!Images are clear and also the sound is very good.I have to do some other test but i'm stisfied with it. It is perfect for my recordings.thank you, Sony!

This is the 3rd one of these that I have purchased over the years (Still use all 3) and just find it such a simple straight forward camera to use. This is the first one I have brought without the eye viewfinder but to be honest I don't think I have ever used the ones on the other cameras so not that...

3 January 2023

At present I cant find any faults regards using this. I use it for my family and outside interest

29 December 2022

I've used Sony movie and DV cameras for over 40 years from Super 8 onwards, many in very demanding environments such as underwater housings and up ships and yacht masts dangling round my neck, none have ever failed.Never used eyepiece as spectacles get in the way.

22 July 2022

Very nice camera. Superb quality and built strong.

18 July 2022

The performance of the camera is very good, with excellent battery life. The overall package is let down by the lack of a viewfinder. This could be compensated for to some extent by having a brightness control of the viewing screen.
