Kind of disappointed. The focus seems slow and so it lacks

Kind of disappointed. The focus seems slow and so it lacks sharpness often. I think my 1080P Canon might be better at times on a 4K TV even though it is upscaled. I would not buy it again as I think you need to wait another generation.

Awesome IS, good 1080.60, bad 4k, fkn terrible manual mode

The one and only reason you should get this is the image stabilization. The 4k at 30 FPS is not great TBH because it ends up a pretty big tile-ing effect if you have a lot of motion in the scene (it was really bad when I filmed a stream flowing).The other main issue I face with this is that the manual controls are through the floor, trash-tastically terrible. If this camera doesn't happen to guess what you want focused then get ready for hell. ""OH MAN I WANNA FILM THAT RARE BIRD okokok I'm at full zoom with only a tiny bit of shake, ok that's awesome but the stupid camera is focused on the trees waving in the background DAMMIT ok hold the manual button, scroll to exposure since it's way to dark, hit manual button, scroll the exposure up, hit manual button DAMMIT THAT PUT IT BACK INTO AUTO EXPOSURE, hit manual button, scroll exposure back up, HOLD manual button this time, scroll to focus, DAMMIT THE RING IS TOO SENSITIVE I SCROLLED TOO FAR, ok on I'm focus manual mode. Hit the button, scroll to get focus.. and the bird flew away.""I use this camera at 1080, 60 fps with digital zoom off. That way I get the maximum image stabilization. And btw the image stabilization is absolutely incredible on this thing.

I love the 4K

I love the 4K, mechanical stabilization, and HDR. I love how it usually doesn't catch much wind noise, and the feature sort of like a shotgun mic which diminishes sounds from behind the camera. To see the images shot in varying conditions, watch bit.ly/joke-hunters which I shot with some neighbor kids this week. I didn't turn off the behind-the-camera noise for the indoor shots, which may have reduced the AC noise.

I use this camera to record high school baseball and basketball. It does a phenomenal job, especially when recording in 120fps. Excellent image stabilization, very fast auto focus, smooth optical zoom.

PRODUCES HORRIBLE, SHAKY VIDEO ON A TRIPOD
by Valued Customer on May 19, 2018
 
 
 
 
 
Verified Purchase

I purchased this camera solely for the purpose of recording school plays on a tripod and it fails miserably at this task. Search the internet for FDR-AX53A/B on a Tripod and you will find a horror story of unhappy customers. Sony tried to fix the problem with a single firmware update but it failed as well. The system basically turns off the stabilizer when it detects it is stable (on a tripod) and reacts wildly when motion is detected again (touching the camera on the tripod) and you get horrible shaky video. The problem is exacerbated when zoomed up on a subject.That aside, it works well as a hand held camera. My main point here is to relay that the camera is a disaster for steady recording on a tripod. Had I known this, I would not have purchased it.

Good for an entry level videographer

As a video student, I have used it for several video projects, and people have commented on how great the quality is. It is also much cheaper than industry standard video cameras, and does a great job.

Good camera, bad user interface
by Valued Customer on March 09, 2018

Excellent camcorder with tons of features. I'm dropping two stars because the user interface is horrible, clumsy, and non-intuitive. In order to change resolution, for example, you have to first pick a codec. And it's difficult to find manual settings, which can sometimes be set to manual and you don't even realize it until after messing up your shots. Basically, you need to spend some time setting up the camera before each recording, and train yourself to become an expert with it before anything critical comes along.
