I like the Camera, but there are some issues

Verdict: I've owned this camera since April 2016 and, on balance, I like it. The Good; 1. The HD XAVC-S is really good. Although its standard HD resolution (1020 x 1080), their XAVCS gives incredibly sharp and detailed pictures compared to the usual AVCHD recordings.

Simple to use

Verdict: I bought this Handycam as a replacement for my ageing Panasonic TM80 which I was beginning to find very limiting as all settings were accessed by nested menus via the touch screen. Although the AX53 also uses menus they are not so deeply nested.

Sony Handycam FDR-AX53

Pros: Size, ease of use and awesome picture quality. The camera has several features that are closer to pro cameras
Cons: A bit expensive
Verdict: Love the camera! I hadn't seen one in person before ordering it and was worried that it might be to large. When it arrived, I was pleasantly surprised by it's size which is just about perfect. Top quality and easy to use. Crutchfield's rep led me to the right camera and provided awesome service.

Advanced but Fun

Pros: Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality
Cons: Vignetting Possible With
Verdict: An advanced camcorder but fun to use. Amazing stabilization makes a tripod almost redundant. Colour and sharpness are first class. I use it for nature photography for its speed. Zoom is very smooth. Care is needed when using a lens hood or stepping ring as vignetting may occur. Quite a bargain.
