    "Love it...Nice buy...After all is said and done, while the AX100 is an outstanding camcorder for someone who wants a Prosumer 4K video camera for under $2k with great video capabilities in a variety of situations, I was really impressed with Sony's Balanced Optical Stabilization System and went with the FDRAX33/B....I love this camcorder... takes good pictures and the camera is just awesome clear picture and video... I love taking family videos... the only bad thing about the camera is the battery it just last about 1 hour and 1/2 to 2 hours... just buy a extra battery and u should be fine... u wont regret getting one...its a little pricey but deffinetly worth it"

    "Love it...In love...I do a lot of volunteering of making veteran videos, this camera has made a huge difference as I was using a Canon Vixia model that didn't have 4K recording capabilities (Still a great camera that I will continue to use for a number of years)....The only areas I'm disappointed are the audio quality (though this can be improved with a separate or shoe attached microphone) and the stabilization is sometimes too aggressive, introducing shakes or a sense of floating past the point where I intend a pan to stop, as it over compensates for intentional camera movements."

    "Very nice...good camera...After using the 455 to record a couple of games, I can say that it definitely does a better job with the focusing, however from my experience it doesn't do much else better than the lower priced models....The menus take a little getting used to, but this thing is really pretty decent."
