Street Scene at Night. The difference is ONLY the lens. The xv is too wide to the point that it is disorienting. Additionally, to compare the Ax33 to the Xv isn’t fair because the Xv has a fixed lens and is at a wide angle. I wonder how stable the AX33 is at the long end without active mode.

If I attempt equivalent 4K video using, for example, a Panasonic FZ at the same focal length, the much less effective FZ stabilizer results in videos which are, for all practical purposes, useless.

Sony Ax33 is better than most people realize

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. I have taken time to compile a video that shows the difference in video quality between active ad33 vs standard stabilization.

Xa33, 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’s a wonderful little ao;en with a best of class stabilizer which can be adjusted to three levels, providing outstanding results and great image quality.

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.


I agree with you that the Ax does have better clarity and quality 4k. The Nikon Z6 may not offer the incredible resolution of its sibling, the Z7, but its 24MP resolution is more than enough for most people, and the money a3x3 can buy a lot of glass. DJI Ronin-S gimbal stabilization system. That high a pixel count would be totally inappropriate for a camcorder.

I think you nailed it! We’ve selected our favorite lenses for Canon DSLRs in several categories to make your decisions easier.

The vignetting in the first scene is due to being zoomed in completely. This is also true for the Sony AX It is ugly, and that artifact is property of the lens. The difference is ONLY the lens. Hands-on with the Fujinon MKmm Wound.

In any case, the pixel count does not have anything to do with the lower resolution.

Check out my video and let me know what you think. Well this is the footnote: It’s too bad because sony could have easily beaten Gopro if they wouldn’t have gotten so ridiculous with the wide angle. I don’t know if it is worth noting, but yesterday I was looking down into the lens outside and I noticed quite a strong Purple tint to the lens itself, similar to looking at a Sapphire crystal watch face. If it were just a gimbal, then it wouldn’t matter the weight, but Sony designed it to be electromechanical whereas the system intelligently moves according to hand shake and extra weight in the gimbal could delay the responsiveness of the unit.

I believe that “gross” pixel count of over 18 million is also higher than the 1″-sensor AX Yeah there is bad chromatic aberration when fully zoomed in. If you’re looking for a high-quality camera, you don’t need to spend a ton of cash, nor do you need to buy the latest and greatest new product on the market.

Reproduction in whole or part in any form or medium without specific written permission is prohibited. The Ax has a larger sensor allowing it to use a crop without affecting image quality. No it is not.

Its one of the negatives of the camera. AX33 4K frame grab. Submit a News Tip! The specs are very confusing. What appears to happen with the Ax is that in its stabilization, it drops the binning to make use of the extra space on the sensor as a buffer when movement occurs. The only comparison that comes close to fair would be to have the Ax33 at its widest angle, but even then you still comparing a prime lens to a zoom lens and we all know that prime lenses provide better imaging.
