Advanced features for great movies
The performance packed into the top-class Sony FDR-AXP55 4K Handycam is peerless. Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ and Fast Intelligent AF achieve exactly the images you aim for. A new microphone structure captures ambience that’s all-surrounding. You can even play with time in motion or gain control of pro-style/manual functions. The possibilities and pleasures are endless.

The brilliant true-to-life quality of 4K
A newly developed lens and image sensor enhance the spectacular definition of 4K resolution, with particular sensitivity for capturing high-quality movies in low light.

New ZEISS 20x zoom 4K-compatible lens
ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens with 26.8mm widest angle allows more of a subject to fit in frame.

New Exmor R CMOS sensor for 4K
Bigger pixel size improves sensitivity for shooting movies with less noise, even in darkness.

The wonder of high-bitrate 4K and HD
High-bitrate recording in XAVC S format clearly captures even changing scenes with a lot of motion.
* An SDXC card is required for XAVC-S video recording; this includes all 4K formats, as well as some high-bitrate Full HD.

Super-sampled Full HD Playback on non-4K TV or device
4K movies shot with the Sony FDR-AXP55 automatically down-convert to Full HD to play on an HD TV.

Trimming Playback trims movie frame on TV at a touch
Trace a finger on the LCD to trim frame of 4K movie playing on TV in Full HD.

Less image shake within a broad zoom range
For extra-stable movie shooting from wide to telephoto. In HD shooting mode, the Sony FDR-AXP55’s 5-axis Intelligent Active mode further compensates for camera shake, even when shooting while running.

Fast Intelligent AF speeds up smartly
A new AF algorithm optimises communication between lens and image processor for extra-fast AF, and a state-of-the-art AF range prediction system keeps the subject in sharp focus.

Capture real-life sound
The new microphone structure is designed to capture high-quality sound that conveys fuller ambience with approximately 40% less noise.

High-speed REC for slow-motion movies
Record a movie at a high frame rate such as 120fps/100fps (NTSC/PAL) in Full HD. Slow motion movie will reveal startling image quality in every instance of action.

See times change with 4K time-lapse movies
With the Sony FDR-AXP55’s Time-lapse Capture, shoot stills of a scene over a period of time with a chosen interval between each shot and edit the sequence into a high-quality 4K time-lapse movie.

Show movies instantly with the built-in projector
No fuss - just project movies onto any preferably flat, white surface.

Unleash more professional shooting potential
Professional-style features include manual ring and manual button for control of various assignable functions, electronic viewfinder, plus Time Code and User Bit data recording.
