The latest-generation image sensor exclusively for 4K

The latest-generation image sensor exclusively for 4K

The new generation sensor is designed for optimal 4K recording. With pixel sizes around 1.6x larger than previous models, the AX43 captures beautiful images with less noise, even in the extremes of low and bright lighting conditions.

ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens for 4K

ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens for 4K

The AX43 features a custom lens, developed for the highest quality 4K imaging throughout its entire wide-to-telephoto range. The use of AA (advanced aspherical) lens elements ensures, even with the compact design, each scene is faithfully captured, while ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass delivers accurate colour without aberration. The ZEISS T* Coating further enhances image quality by reducing unwanted reflections, including ghosting and flare.

Up to 26.8mm wide angle lens

Up to 26.8mm wide angle lens

Whether you're shooting movies or still images, the class-leading wide-angle lens can help you capture more of landscapes and indoor scenes, when you don't have enough room to step back. Even without a wide conversion lens, the camcorder shoots as wide as 26.8mm (16:9 aspect ratio) in movie mode.

Rapid AF response to capture decisive moments

Rapid AF response to capture decisive moments

Fast Intelligent AF achieves speedy, accurate contrast-detection autofocus by minimising lens motion, predicting the AF range, and accelerating lens drive, thereby improving response so you can capture more fleeting moments.

Lock-on AF

Lock-on AF

Realistic recording of voices, music and other sound

Realistic recording of voices, music and other sound

Thanks to the three-capsule mic, the AX43 microphone gathers sound from five directions and, with advanced audio processing, results in dramatically better built-in audio recording. Around 40% less background noise is captured, and you'll enjoy better stereo, or 5.1ch surround (AVCHD) separation, for more faithful capture, clearer dialogue, and more compelling soundtracks.

High Speed recording for high-quality slow motion

High Speed recording for high-quality slow motion

With support for high frame rate capture up to 120fps in Full HD, you can create slow-motion recordings, elevating every movement in startling detail. Simply import your video in the free PlayMemories Home, or other popular editing software, to reveal smooth, sharp action in even in the most everyday activities.

4K Time-lapse Capture

4K Time-lapse Capture

With Time-lapse Capture, shoot stills of a scene over a period of time with a chosen interval between shots. The resulting images can be combined at high resolution into a time-lapse movie on a PC, and viewed with a simple variable-speed preview function on the camera, even in high-quality 4K.

Trimming Playback

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.

Time Code / User Bit

Time Code / User Bit

The AX43 can add embedded data elements to your video, for professional workflows and tracking. The Time Code function records a frame-accurate synchronisation sequence, ideal for precise edit matching in multi-camera shoots. User Bit lets you embed an eight-character reference, such as a scene number, along with your footage, for easier tracking in post-production.

Exceptional image quality

Exceptional image quality

The AX43 can capture video using the XAVC S format for high-quality images. Based on formats used for professional productions, XAVC S offers bitrates up to 100Mbps, and highly efficient compression, for detailed images and easily manageable file sizes.

Motion Shot Video

Motion Shot Video

Use Motion Shot Video to create dramatic motion playback sequences, superimposing images of your moving subject to trace each split second of action. You can adjust the interval between images to create amazing images for sharing with friends, or use it as a powerful tool for analysing sports motion on screen.

Dual Video Recording

Dual Video Recording

Record two movie formats 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 upload, plus a professional-grade file for further editing.

Capture smooth, professional-looking images, even at full zoom or while running, with no need for bulky external gimbals. In HD shooting mode, it further reduces the effect of camera shake with 5-axis Intelligent Active mode compensating for vibration across pan, tilt, roll, pitch, and yaw.
