The FDR-AX43 was developed for content creators and vloggers looking to produce footage that’s of better quality than that from a smartphone.

My Take:

Overall the Sony FDR-AX43 is an excellent camcorder for vlogger looking to improve video quality beyond that of a smartphone and desires an in-built gimbal for more professional footage, with good sound recording thrown in.

The camcorder is the newest member of a line-up that includes the AX33 and AX53, with its main addition being an in-built gimbal mechanism and its Balanced Optical SteadyShot technology for capturing smooth, natural and high-quality video footage.

So instead of purchasing and lugging around an external gimbal setup, it was a pleasure just using the compact FDR-AX43 during shooting.

When sitting down or just standing still, the footage came out totally free of shake.

The flip-screen of the Sony FDR-AX43 can be rotated 180 degrees for taking selfies.

But it’s when you’re walking (or even slightly jogging) that the embedded gimbal does its magic, producing smooth footage that doesn’t look like an amateur Blair Witch Project.
