Therefore, even if there is some loss of ultimate resolution, it is well worth the compromise, since the resulting video looks extremely attractive and very usable. Submit a News Tip! Having owned dozens of camcorders, most recently the AX33, I wanted to add a couple points to your very well stated comments above. DJI Ronin-S gimbal stabilization system. Larry No, it is the lens.

We’ve selected our favorite lenses for Sony mirrorlses cameras in several categories to make your decisions easier. Only that its ranking is not due to the active mode degradation. Those of us who have used software or other camcorders stabilizers know that there never has been a free lunch when it comes to eliminating vibration and shake and having a powerful stabilizer with user control is a great solution.

Is it enough of a refresh to keep up with the times? Fujifilm’s X-mount has suddenly become a credible option for video Feb 19, Fujifilm’s X-mount has suddenly become a credible option for video.

You have concluded that the AX33 lens is the reason for its relatively soft performance for 4K video, and went on to explain that since the FDR-Xv had very superior video detail but used the same sensor and processor, the lens MUST BE the explanation for the inferior AX33 performance.

Color night vision with the SiOnyx Aurora. Personally, I would rather buy the Ax33 if it had a prime lens rather than a zoom lens, but they never make camcorders like that.


If you’re looking for a high-quality camera, you don’t need to spend a ton of cash, souhd do you need to buy the latest and greatest new product on the market. I do feel that the Ax osund have slightly larger pixels, or utilize pixel binning to reduce noise. This makes much much more sense from a designer’s perspective given the requirement to shoot 20 Megapixel still photos through that very same lens.

Additionally, to compare the Ax33 to the Xv isn’t fair because the Xv has a fixed lens and is at a wide angle.

The Ax33 on the other hand uses exactly a 1: AX33 4K frame grab.

Moreover, the sensor, processor and means of achieving 4K full pixel readout are exactly the same as the FDR-XV – which achieves substantially higher-resolution 4K based on tests – this is not an “opinion” and which uses a much smaller battery. But, how stable is the video from the AX33 without active mode at the long end?

Reproduction in whole or part in any form or medium without specific written permission is prohibited. It is ugly, and that artifact is property of the lens. So ultimately, for people interested in a great 4k camcorder at a reasonable cost that provides best in class stabilization, the Ax33 is the answer.

I could consider this a possibility too.

Sony Ax33 is better than most people realize

Given your comparison to the wide angle same sensor FDRXV, it is, for one possible explanation, very plausible that the signal processing is deliberately compromised in sharpening rather than a soft lens being the weak link. In fact, the sensor and quite possibly the processor used on the two cameras is NOT the same, and CA is no proof whatsoever of an inferior lens being used in the AX The difference is ONLY the lens.


All of these cameras shoot still photos at much higher resolution than 4K video, exhibit low chromatic aberration, are as small as a deck of playing cards, and cost a few hundred dollars. Now, I admit still being confused what the actual pixel count on the sensor is given the low “effective” pixel counts even for photos.

The Ax33 in active stabilization mode is essentially the same thing as digitally zooming whereas the Ax in active stabilization mode can run active stabilization without having to degrade quality because there is extra physical image sensor remaining. Chromatic abberation, thats what i meant to say.

Help Guide | Enjoying ch surround sound

I am sure it will be better than the Ax in terms of shakiness, but will it be stable – Sony does not offer this option, which they know degrades, for no reason. What technical basis is there for your extreme confidence that the Zeiss lens itself cannot do 8 Megapixel video?

The vignetting isn’t nearly that bad when osund out.

AX33 still frame And here is the xound grab, 1. In any case, the pixel count does not have anything to do with the lower resolution. I wonder how stable the AX33 is at the long end without active mode.
