Re: New Sony AX-53 Testing

I'm doing some more test shots with the AX53. Does anyone know if it's possible to read the metadata within a editing system and burn-in the camera setting within the image. I now the camera can do it via HDMI.

Wondering if there is a plugin available. I'm PC based and may need to download a 30 trail of the editing software if needed. I'm Avid Media Composer based mainly and use Blackmagic Resolve for XAVC-S.

Re: New Sony AX-53 Testing

The audio will be in sync with the video not the live sound. That is why you will hear an echo. Same is true for most cameras.

All my cameras are the same with the sound in sync with the video on the LCD. There is no option to have no delay in the sound. By the way there is also a processing delay for the video displayed on the LCD. The AX100 is exactly the same as the AX53.

Re: New Sony AX-53 Testing

Just tested my AX53 with Sennheiser HD 280 pro headphones and there is an echo while monitoring the sound. On playback the sound recording is fine. I also test it with a external mic. A Sennheiser K6/ME66 mic, again same problem but does not effect the recording.

Its is like you are getting a return signal from the delayed recording and hearing the live mic at a higher level for the live mic at the same time.

The only option is too trust your skills. Let go, trust your feelings and believe in the force.

Re: New Sony AX-53 Testing

What you are seeing on the LCD and hearing is the recorded/processed signal so there will be a delay due to the processing of the video and audio. The echo is from the fact you are hearing the recorded signal and your headphones do no fully insulate the live audio. With my closed back headphones if I press them to my ears then the effect is almost eliminated.

Re: New Sony AX-53 Testing

Hi

Just fired up my AX53 after a rest period of a few weeks, no battery connected - it needed to reset place/time/date prefs. Does this mean the internal back-up battery is stuffed already? or does it need me to leave an external battery attached. My EX1 did this after 6 years, easy to replace the lithium battery - can't find information on the 53's internal power source as yet, any observations?

thanks

Paul :-)

Re: New Sony AX-53 Testing

Not to worry. This is common to all cameras not used for some time as the internal small battery drains itself. Most cameras come with a smaller and limited time battery.....but keep in mind that even that battery will eventually drain.

Re: New Sony AX-53 Testing

The internal battery will discharge after a while, I believe Sony says to attach a fully charged battery for at least 24 hours to "recharge" the internal, after which time it should hold the setup data again.

Re: New Sony AX-53 Testing

The A/C adapter would also charge the internal battery...
