My experience with the Sony FDR-AX33 4K camcorder wasn’t 100% satisfactory so I ordered another camera, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4. This is a 4K-capable mirrorless DSLR that allows you to use your existing Canon/Nikon DSLR lenses with an adapter. Now, this is touted by many videographers as one of the best 4K DSLR cameras out there. So, I had to try it.

I decided to upgrade my camera gear a bit with some 4K videos. For that, I chose the latest Sony FDR-AX33, which is Sony’s latest 4K camera just released at end of Febuary in 2015. Sony did release a larger FDR-AX100 (which has larger sensor) but the newer FDR-AX33 is a lot more portable plus it has BOSS (Balanced Optical Steady Shot) along with 100Mbps bitrate. Now, for those of you looking for a good 4K camcorder to make 4K videos, this may be one of the best 4K camcorders out right nowt that’s under $1000.
I know I made this website to be about Android but I have a ton of passion for making videos and video equipment. Plus, if you want to take videos that you can’t really make with an Android device, this could be very useful.
For example, I love my Note 4 camera and its camera abilities but if I wanted to make home videos of my daughter skateboarding (and me following her) without my Note 4 shaking on me, I really couldn’t as smartphone video recording technology is simply not there yet. One day I will definitely make videos with my Android smartphones only but until then, I use other gear that make my videos as best as possible.
