The brilliant true-to-life quality of 4K
The latest-generation lens and image sensor enhance the spectacular detail of 4K resolution, with increased sensitivity for capturing high-quality movies in low light. High-bitrate recording in XAVC S format clearly captures even fast-moving and complex scenes.
Exmor R CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processing engine
The Exmor R CMOS sensor enhances image clarity, reduces noise in dark environments, and enables soft background defocusing, while the BIONZ X image processing engine achieves more naturally vivid and lifelike images and faster processing.
Super-sampled Full HD Playback on non-4K TV or device
4K movies automatically down-convert to Full HD to play on an HD TV.
Trimming Playback trims movie frame on TV at a touch
Trace a finger on the LCD to trim the frame of a 4K movie playing on TV in Full HD.
Fast Intelligent AF speeds up smartly
The AF algorithm optimizes communication between the lens and image processor for extra-fast AF, while a state-of-the-art AF range prediction system helps ensure even moving subjects remain in sharp focus.
Great sound, less noise
Three mic capsules capture clear sound and reduce noise, enabling high-quality recording of sound with clear stereo separation.
Shoot selfies, high- and low-position at will
Create the perfect vlogging setup with an optional shooting grip or microphone. The tilting LCD and grip make selfies, high- and low-position shots easy.
LCD touch control
With all settings accessible right on the touch screen, operation is fast and simple.
Serious audio connectivity
Headphone and microphone jacks are provided, for premium audio connectivity.
Battery life
The AX43A uses a high-capacity battery to enable recording for long periods. Continuous recording is possible for up to 235 mins with the supplied battery.
One-touch remote and one-touch sharing
Connect NFC-capable Android devices with a simple touch, for remote control, viewing and image transfer using the Imaging Edge Mobile app. Easy manual pairing for iOS and other devices is also available.
Highlight Movie Maker
Streamline your movie editing with Highlight Movie Maker. Using Dual Video Rec, the FDR-AX43A can simultaneously capture at 4K (3840x2160) or Full HD (1920×1080) for full quality storage, and at HD (1280x720) using an efficient MP4 video format for easy sharing. From the HD version, Highlight Movie Maker can quickly and automatically create HD highlight movies for immediate sharing - complete with video transitions and your choice of background music.
Fast frame rates, for slow-motion
With support for high framerate capture, up to 100fps/120fps in Full HD, you can create slow-motion recordings, elevating every movement in startling detail.
See times change with 4K time-lapse movies
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 in 4K high resolution into a time-lapse movie on a PC, or viewed with a simple variable-speed preview function on the camera.
