Is it enough of a refresh to keep up with the times? So these results have nothing to do with sensor or processor or active mode. 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. It also has a 3rd mode to entirely disable the stabilizer if a tripod is being used. I will post results here. However, I do not believe that the Ax is significantly better sensor wise than the Ax Essentially, the BOSS system is like buying a built in electromechanical gimbal for your camcorder.

Its one of the negatives of the camera. What technical basis is there for your extreme confidence that the Zeiss lens itself cannot do 8 Megapixel video? There are several potential explanations for softer images but no convincing evidence to me that it can sounc be the lens to blame.

The stabilization is light ao;en ahead of any other gimbal device you can get for videography as it is intelligent enough to know when a movement is due to hand shake and not purposely moving. I think the issue is the AX33 lens Zeiss or no Zeiss.

The best camera bargains of I say this since many Sony cameras with small sensors and super zoom lenses have been around for years, with 24 megapixel resolutions, zoom ratios of 20 to 1 or higher, and very good to excellent resolution. So these results have nothing to do with sensor or processor or active mode. It is also true that the AX is unusable sojnd terms of shakiness at the long end without active stabilization turned on.

Sony Ax33 is better than most people realize

In our latest buying guide we’ve selected some cameras that while they’re a bit older, still offer a lot of bang for the buck. BTW, the purple coating is there to reduce internal reflections and glare, and is a common and age-old appearance of optics using anti-reflective treatment. It degrades the quality and makes it look worse than p camcorders.

But resolution tests e. Fujifilm’s X-mount has suddenly become a credible option for video Feb 19, 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. 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. I do not find it plausible that Sony deliberately cripples the resolution rather than having to make compromises with the lens to keep it light.

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.

The AX33 provides 20 Megapixel still photographs in the 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.
