Great Camera but

 

Camera is great but transferring videos to my computer was very difficult. There should be a YouTube link so that people can see easily what to do.

Boss Stabilization is awesome but still no 4k 50p

 

The Boss stabilization is excellent. This model is better than last years AX33 but I would like a bigger sensor like a AX100 in a body this size. I really cannot believe in 2016 there is still no 4k 50p recording mode option.

Top quality handycam

 

I am an experienced videographer and the AX53 is the best camera that I have ever owned. Whilst I bought the camera for its 4K capability, I am only using it at the moment for HD output using the highest quality setting of 50p and a bit rate of 50Mbps....
