Pretty Good

Surprised and disappointed that it can't record 5.1 sound while doing 4K video. Need to knock it down to 1080p for it to record 5.1. I don't record a lot of video anymore but this is replaying our other sony from about 7 years ago so it's a good improvement. Still not super clear in low light but it is better than our old 1080p one. Also disappointed that there is no onboard storage at all. I had to buy an new SD card just to try it out. now that I have opened the SD card and the camera I might as well just keep it.

Sony FDR AX33B 4K very good but wait for AX-53B

I was very satisfied with this 4K camcorder but saw the specs for it's replacement due out at the end of March. Best Buy are great on their return policy (14 days) so I was able to field test this model to my satisfaction and to return it within allotted return period. I will be placing an order for the AX-53B that will have a 20X zoom plus a slightly larger sensor and better optics (so Sony says). Best Buy does price match but I didn't need to as their price was on par with other store's sale price.

4K video camera

It is a great camera with resolution better than any old professional high definition video cameras. It requires 4k SD cards. I would like to see a smaller and lighter model for travelling.

Great one for not so professional purpose

If you have enough budget, and try to have a semi-professional camcorder for family or even for your stream, here is one of your best choice. At least I don't regret to buy this, it works pretty well. Highly recommend to buy a tripod for this if you want to record some event that gonna takes a long time.

Awesome Personal 4K Camcorder

The Sony FDR-AX33B 4K Flash Memory Camcorder is considered to be an entry level 4K camcorder. I bought mine from Best Buy a few months ago and love use the camcorder often. It is my second Sony camcorders and I like them for shooting in low light. Picture is sharp and has lens stabilization, and many feature often found in more expensive camcorder. Also uses full sized SD XC I /3/ (10) cards. I would also recommend using an external mike with this camcorder.

Wery good camcorder

Amazing stability on super steady shot mode, no shakes at all. Picture quality is perfect even at max zoom. Good product at reasonable price.
