I usually use my FDR-AX33 to record all my YouTube videos, however, I recently had a buffer issue with my AX33, that Sony could not figure out the issue and repair. SO they will be purchasing it back. This gave me the unique opportunity to test out different Camcorder Models and see side by side comparisons In this video, I have some test shots of the FDR-AX33 and FDR-AX53 as well as cover some differences between them.
I show both test outdoor and indoor footage, as well as a side by side while going over some specs differences.


The Sony FDR-AX53 is a palm-sized Handycam camcorder that combines a Zeiss 20x optical zoom lens and a high-sensitivity image sensor to produce crisp and high-quality UHD 4K video. The Exmor R CMOS image sensor supports UHD 4K video capture at 24 or 30 fps using Sony’s XAVC S codec and features pixels that are approximately 1.6x larger than the previous model for enhanced performance in all conditions, particularly low-light scenarios. The camcorder also features Sony’s Balance Optical SteadyShot image stabilization technology to help produce smooth and stable footage throughout the zoom range. Further enhancements include improved autofocus speed and accuracy, a lower-noise built-in microphone, and a high-speed 1080p 120 fps recording mode to create high-resolution slow-motion content.

You can monitor your shots using the camcorder’s 3.0″ Xtra Fine LCD touchscreen display with 921K dot resolution, or the high-resolution 0.24″ 1,555K dot OLED EVF. For large-screen playback, an HDMI output port is also provided for connecting to your HDTV to large-screen. You can even ‘trim’ a selected portion of a 4K video or image frame to fill the screen with Full HD quality. For enhanced connectivity and remote control, the FDR-AX53 is Wi-Fi and NFC enabled. This lets you use your smartphone or tablet to control the camcorder, as well as wirelessly transfer files to your mobile device and even stream live to Ustream.

Designed for a wide range of users, the camcorder features a range of automatic image and audio options for easy point-and-shoot operation, as well as enhanced manual controls that give you more creative freedom. An assignable ring on the front of the camcorder can be assigned to control of zoom, focus, exposure, iris, shutter speed, exposure, or white balance. A rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack is included for powering the camcorder, along with an AC adapter, micro-HDMI cable, and micro-USB cable.”
