It’s not a new thing, but Vlogging sure is getting some attraction from the biggest camera brands in the world. This week Sony announced a new camera aimed fairly and squarely at the point-at-me generation.
The FDR-AX43 features a built-in gimbal mechanism, Sony’s software-driven SteadyShot technology, 4K recording in a traditional handycam style body.
Key Vlogger needs are catered for, with the flip-screen for selfie shooting being chief among them.
Add to that things like a long battery life (up to 235mins of continuous recording time), three mic capsules for advanced sound and a 20x optical zoom and you’re starting to tick a lot of boxes.
The only real question is size and weight for this product versus something like the Canon G7X Mark III – though I think this might tick more boxes for video purists.
The FDR-AX43 goes on sale in the second quarter for a RRP of $1,299
