Pro performance in your palm

Relive memories in rich 4K resolution with about four times more detail than Full HD. The unprecedented FDR-AX30 offers Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ and a ZEISS lens for utmost image quality.

4K/HD XAVC S recording

SDXC/SDHC memory card (UHS-I U3 or higher) is required for 4K 100Mbps recording and SDXC/SDHC memory card (Class10 or higher) is required for 4K 60Mbps and HD 50Mbps recording. To use SDHC memory card, firmware update of camera may be required.

Extra-compact with manual operation functions

The FDR-AX30 is over 30% more compact and portable than the diminutive FDR-AX100 that preceded it. Yet, its extensive manual control is simple and intuitive for customising settings as desired according to shooting conditions.

Behold your blurless best

By controlling the optical path from lens to sensor as one floating unit, our advanced Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ ensures incredibly stable recording.
