Shoot simply, but powerfully with the camera that delivers Full HD quality and professional, yet easy-to-use features including Optical SteadyShot with Intelligent Active Mode to help minimize shake. Capture wide, vibrant and clear footage with a 26.8mm lens, 30x optical zoom and Fast Intelligent Autofocus. Even enjoy time-lapse recording and detailed sound from the 5-direction microphone. It?s great shooting made easy.

Brilliant 50Mbps XAVC S 1920x1080 at 60P, AVCHD and MP4 codecs

Create cinematic video in high definition 1920 x 1080 30p/60p up to 50Mbps in XAVC S and high quality 9.2MP still images. XAVC S format uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 for video compression and linear PCM for audio compression, while saving files in a MP4 wrapper which allows for extensive record times and easy editing. Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony?s back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor.

Premium 26.8mm ZEISS Lens w/30x Optical/60x Clear Image Zoom

Not only is this 26.8mm wide-angle ZEISS Vario-Tessar lens ideal for capturing grand landscapes, but also allows you to get amazingly close with 30x optical zoom plus 60x Clear Image digital zoom. Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in un-sharp images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos and video.

Optical SteadyShot image stabilization w/ Intelligent Active Mode

Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver stunningly smooth video from wide angle to full telephoto shooting. In addition, innovative 3-Way Shake-Canceling adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture.

Fast Intelligent AF captures the decisive moment

Fast Intelligent AF achieves incredibly rapid and accurate contrast-detection. It minimizes lens motion, predicting the AF range, and accelerates the lens drive, thereby improving response so you can capture precise moments.

Produce high quality Time Lapse in HD for an immersive experience

You can capture high resolution still images continuously over an extensive period of time at a selected constant interval from each shot to the next, edit the entire sequence of still images in post-production, and enjoy playback of that series of images as a Full High Definition time-lapse movie.

Automatically creates highlight video in MP4 from multiple clips

Highlight Movie Maker produces a short highlight movie clip to share and enjoy instantly. Using an advanced algorithm, based on the motion gyro, Highlight Movie Maker selects the best scenes from your videos and automatically creates a MP4 highlight video from multiple clips.

3.0" Clear Photo Plus LCD display

The 3.0" (16:9) Clear Photo LCD (230K) displays sharp, bright, vivid images, letting you compose a shot more easily - even outdoors, while enabling you to change settings to best represent the scene.

Connect, control, backup, share and broadcast wirelessly with NFC7/Wi-Fi?

Easily connect to an Android or iOS smartphone or tablet with Wi-Fi and the PlayMemories Mobile app to control the camcorder (Rec, photo, zoom) or instantly transfer, share movies and photos via your mobile device. NFC (Near Filed Communication) makes it even easier to connect to NFC compatible mobile devices with one touch. Share the adventure as it happens via Ustream live streaming. Now your circle of friends and family can share the excitement in real time by simply logging in to Ustream from anywhere. You can also link your favorite social accounts with the streaming to notify your friends when you start streaming video. Add a different point of view by including other camera angles to your movies. The camcorder connects up to five compatible cameras - like an Action Cam - via Wi-Fi and uses the camcorder's LCD to preview what the other cameras are seeing and simultaneously start recording on all synced cameras. Use PlayMemories Home to easily edit a multi-view movie for a great video experience.

Built-in USB cable for easy file transfer/charge

The high-speed, built-in USB 2.0 cable allows for easy connection to your computer for charging or file transfer without having to remember separate cables. It also fits conveniently into the hand strap so it?s out of the way until you need it. Charging your camcorder is faster than ever now through the USB; for every two minutes of charge time you get one minute of recording time.

Face Detection with voice enhancement and noise reduction

Sony's Face Detection technology can automatically distinguish between children and adults. Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts flash, focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends.

Review submitted for Sony HDR-CX455/B Full HD Handycam Camcorder with Exmor R CMOS Sensor Deluxe Bundle (E2SNHDRCX455B)
Verified Purchaser

Verified Reviewer
Pros: The video camera is very light and compact. It could easily fit into a larger jacket pocket. The onscreen menu instructions are generally easy to navigate and logically setup. I have done a few test videos this past week and the quality appears satisfactory. The real test will start next week when I take the camera with me on vacation.
Cons: The photo quality is poor. The photos always had a "grainy" / "splotchy" appearance regardless of the settings I used. Not sure if this is a problem of just my camera or the the model in general. Also Sony claims 9 Mb photos. The actual photos are just 2.2Mb in size. Also the Time Lapse feature is actually a series of photos strung together, which ended up being of same poor quality when viewed on a HD TV. Viewing on a computer is more acceptable due to screen size.
Other Comments: You get what you pay for. Its a relatively inexpensive camcorder so don't expect professional quality results. Camera comes with 8GB of internal memory which is good for trying out the camera. You will need at least 32GB memory card to do any serious videoing. Also a backup battery is a good idea.
