1 / 2.5 "Exmor R Low Light CMOS Sensor
The CMOS sensor provides enhanced sensitivity to capture high-quality images with less noise in bright, dark shooting conditions.

The FDR-AX43's built-in gimbal with balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization dampens your images from jerk and jerk, even while running or approaching.
ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T * lens with 20x optical zoom
The ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T * lens features a wide 35mm equivalent focal length of 26.8mm (in film mode) to better match your shots and a 20x optical zoom range in UHD 4K. Multilayer reduces unwanted reflections, ghost images and flare. To get closer to the action, the zoom range can be expanded using Clear Image Zoom 30x / 40x (4K / HD) using Clear Image zoom.
Fast Smart AF
Fast Intelligent Autofocus uses precise autofocus with contrast detection to minimize lens movement, predict autofocus range, and speed up target driving so you can capture more fleeting moments.
5.1 channel on-board audio capture
During AVCHD recording, a built-in 5.1-channel microphone captures active sounds coming from five directions so you can experience your home movies the way you experienced them while recording. Level meters on the LCD panel provide visual monitoring of the levels of each channel.
Note: 5.1ch audio is only available when recording to AVCHD, so it is not available for UHD 4K recording, which uses the XAVC S codec.
Lower noise audio performance
The microphone is designed to bring together clear, five-way sound, allowing you to faithfully reproduce audio with a clearly defined separation.
High-speed Full HD recording
Record at 1080p at 120 fps and bring it to your editing software to produce high-resolution slow-motion images. This is useful for reviewing, in greater detail in slow motion, sports and everyday actions that can happen too fast in real time for you to see clearly.
XAVC S, AVCHD and MP4 codecs
The FDR-AX43 records 4K and HD movies in XAVC S format, which uses MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 for video compression and Linear PCM for audio compression, while saving files in an MP4 container that allows for long recording times and easy editing. Also, you can choose to record HD to AVCHD (ideal for recording
