I was thinking of also purchasing the Sony FDR-AX100 but decided to go with the FDR-AX53 as my run-'n gun camcorder since they both had similar video and image quality and the AX53 has Sony's legendary Balanced Optical Steady Shot image stabilization.
I have had my Sony AX53 since April 2016 and I am very happy with the video quality recorded by this device. However I have discovered that the Sony AX53 does not capture or record meta-data to the mp4 files it creates.
This camera is a very nice step up from my entry level camcorder. I was not sure I wanted to spring for the cost but now I have used it I feel the step up in quality of image makes the price fair. The image stabilization makes for much better hand held shots but it is not a replacement for a tripod.

still are better off using a tripodMac does not support the AVCHD shooting mode.
The camera is amazing in every way except for that it has a noticeable shake on the outside edge when shooting in 4k mounted on a tripod. This is a very well known issue with this camera and they claimed to have fixed it with a firmware patch but after applying the firmware the problem still...
I've had this camera for a few weeks now, I've used it for shooting a funrun, an airshow and a surfing event.I really like this camera.I mostly bought it for the stabilization, which is unbelievably amazing!The fact that it shoots 120fps is a bonus, useful for occasional stuff.
I bought two of these to complement my two FDR-AX100 cams. The FDR-AX100 likes to be on a tripod, as its image stabilizer is a bit weak. The FDR-AX53's strength is the balanced optical steadyshot (BOSS) system. Just amazing. I use these cams when I must go handheld.
Used as a secondary camera since it fits into smaller space. Works great
Here I focus on focussing - manual focussing using the manual ring. The automatic focus is rather poor - t always focusses on the background (which is usually further away), rather than the subject, unless the latter is very large.
Este comentario lo har en espaol. Yo compr la cmara porque quera incursionar en el mundo del video, principalmente realizo fotografa con DSLR con mi mark iii , pero se muy poco de video. Revise crticas de esta y otras cmaras y decid por sta debido a sus atributos.
All my camcorders are from Sony. This new model AX53 is the best for me. Its resolution quality is the best. I have nothing to complain except its size. My old model, Sony HDR-CX700V is quite small.
