- The FDR-AX43 records 4K and H.D. movies in the XAVC S format, which uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 for video compression and linear P.C.M. for audio compression, while saving files in an MP4 wrapper which allows for extensive record times and easy editing. Additionally, you can choose to record H.D. in AVCHD (ideal for HDTV and Blu-ray disc burning) or MP4 (ideal for sharing over the internet).
- Record two movies simultaneously, one in the maximum-quality XAVC S or AVCHD format and another in MP4 format. This feature gives you a small file ready for instant sharing, plus a professional-grade file for further editing.
- Shoot in 1080p at 120 fps and bring it into your editing software to produce high-resolution slow-motion footage. This part is useful for reviewing, in greater slow-motion detail, sports, and everyday action that can occur too quickly in real-time for you to see clearly.
- This Camcorder has a slow charging rate.
- The battery life could use an upgrade.
Apart from battery-related troubles, this Sony cam is a product of technological ingenuity. Various features present have redefined video recording and making movies.
