Sony AX33 4K Handycam is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and great 4K video Having bought a Sony 4K television I wanted to be able to video in the same definition. This camera is very easy to use and feels comfortable in the hand. The 4K video looks great on a 55" screen with good colours and lots of detail. The one feature that makes this camera outstanding is its stabilisation. By having the lens and sensor assembly "floating" together the images are free of jerky movement or the sort of slight drift than can ruin video footage. For me this makes this camera invaluable and unique.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and lightweight I bought this a month ago to replace an earlier AVCHD model. The 4K picture quality is excellent, especially when viewed on a 4K TV. This is helped by the excellent balanced optical steady shot (BOSS) system. The camera is really a "point and shoot" style piece of equipment which is fine for holiday videos and family events but would probably not suit a more serious film maker. I edit my 4K footage using Final Cut Pro X which is fine. However there is not yet a 4K Blue-Ray standard for exporting edited 4K footage to disc, which is a pity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Camcorder I bought the FDR-AX33 and an upgrade to my old HDR-XR500 camera and I have to say the quality and operation of the camera is fantastic. Very pleased with my upgrade and still lots more to discover. Brilliant camera

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use, great Handycam I am very pleased with my Sony AX33 4K Handycam, I use it for both video and photos it certainly does the business for me. The usb connection is a very good feature for me too.Ok as other folk have said it's a little heavier to some other makes but I have muscle wasteage in both hands and poor dexterity and have no problems at all with operating this handycam. Would I purchase it again or reccomend a friend ...YES....YES..and no I don't have any shares in sony!...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AX33 4k Camcorder Purchased this for viewing our band as other cheaper cameras and camcorders were poor in low light. First impression is this is good. 1st gig came out really well. Light levels great and camera did not "hunt" to focus like the others. Sound quality great. Didn't try streaming to live feed but remote control from my phone worked fine. So far very impressed. Since purchased a spare battery and usb charger direct from Duracell as Sony original stupidly expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delighted!! Bought this a few weeks ago and really glad i did. Great product easy to use with some excellent features e.g. slow motion. Once I got the correct memory card to record in 4k the picture quality is just unbelievable!! Would definitely recommend. So glad i got this Sony 4k handycam than other products out there in the market place because i just would be sitting at home wishing i had bought the Sony!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My choice! A truly professional camera would be too much for my troubled mind to conjure with. I struggled to get to grips with the Canon XL1. This camera, however, can be simple to use or can be better controlled should that be needed. I found it comfortable, easy to carry and use and certainly is better suited to my needs than most others I have researched. Also fits in an old Canon S1 IS case. Still use with a tripod for certain shots, especially long pans. Good buy. The following ratings are compared to a more expensive camera but would be higher if comparing with its peers or similar sized camcorders.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pity about the backwards incompatibility with LANC Excellent in every way save the inability to connect to a LANC controller. Apparently this has been dispensed with in favour of a barely-useable iPhone app. Since it even has the connectors, tis is evidently a deliberate software disabling. Were it not for this all my ratings would be 5*
