CA is a lens characteristic, so it is obvious the lens is not high quality on the AX The sensor is not 20 megapixels. If you use active stabilization, the camcorder uses a crop of the sensor to allow for the extra space to buffer the movement of the camcorder. The stabilization is light years 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. Actually, the Ax uses some form of pixel binning as its way of recording 4k video to begin with so the entire 1″ of the sensor isn’t even used anyway. It may not be a replacement for a DSLR, but it can complement one well for some uses.

Sony Ax33 is better than most people realize

Could that purple tint possibly be what is causing the purple fringe on the edges of dark objects with light backgrounds? 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 ad33. It’s too bad because sony could have easily beaten Gopro if they wouldn’t have gotten so ridiculous with the wide angle.

The best camera bargains of However, when the camcorder zound zoomed out and even to medium zoom, the chromatic aberration isn’t nearly as bad. Sony Ax33 is better than most people realize.

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 What technical basis is there for your extreme confidence that the Zeiss lens itself cannot do 8 Megapixel video? So these results have nothing to do with sensor or processor or active mode.

Siund don’t know if it is worth noting, but yesterday I was looking down into the lens outside and I noticed quite aipen strong Purple tint to the lens itself, similar to looking at a Sapphire crystal watch face.

The SiOnyx Aurora is a compact camera designed to sounc stills and video in color under low light conditions, so we put it to the test under the northern lights and against a Nikon D5. It’s a wonderful little camcorder with a best of class stabilizer which can be adjusted to three levels, providing outstanding results and great image quality.

Your experiments with f-stop will also be useful to optimize performance. These entry level cameras should be easy to use, offer good image quality and easily connect with a smartphone for sharing.

The difference in zoom between active and standard is completely due to the crop of the active stabilization.

Sony Ax33 is better than most people realize: Digital Video Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

It is not necessary to look further. Sx33 abberation, thats alpen i meant to say. I have seen some comments and reviews of people saying that the video image quality of the Ax33 doesn’t stack up against the competition, but most reviewers aren’t aware that using “active stabilization” reduces the image quality and increases noise on the Ax Now, I ad33 still being confused what the actual pixel count on the sensor is given the low “effective” pixel counts even for photos.

That high a pixel count would be totally inappropriate for a camcorder. Fujifilm’s X-mount has suddenly become a credible option for video. 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.

The stabilization is light years 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.

The current Sony Action cam, still with a Zeiss lens, has the sharpest performance of all the Sony camcorders in 4K. You have concluded that the AX33 lens is the reason for its relatively soft performance for 4K video, and went on to explain that since the FDR-Xv had very superior video detail but used the same sensor and processor, the lens MUST BE the explanation for the inferior AX33 performance.

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. I think that the glass is better on the Ax though, lending it to produce cleaner images.
