Details & Highlights

Product Highlights

    With the Sony CX455 Handycam it's easier than ever to document family moments and special occasions in brilliant color and detail. The HDR–CX455 comes standard with a 26.8 mm wide–angle ZEISS lens with 30x optical zoom, giving you the power of wide–angle shots when you can't step back far enough. The fast and intelligent AF prediction system keeps subjects in focus, even when moving quickly, while Optical SteadyShot™ prevents shake and stabilizes movies with 5–axis image stabilization, even if the handler is lightly jogging. Add a personal touch to any video with special effects like time–lapse and highlight–clip, and capture sound more clearly with the 5.1ch built–in microphone. After recording, instantly send video to your devices with Wi–Fi and NFC connections. Live streaming with USTREAM® lets you share scenes as they happen with high–quality picture and sound. Touch the face of your main focus on the LCD display to activate Face Detection and watch as the CX455 automatically optimizes focus exposure and color for optimal results. Smile Shutter automatically captures snapshots of smiling faces while recording video, similar to the way Dual Rec enables you to shoot HD video and high–res still images simultaneously to capture the best shots in both media.

Details from Sony

    High Definition Handycam® Camcorder

    Aim for high impact in high definition with a Sony Full HD Handycam® camcorder that's ready for action wherever you go. Shoot movies of everything, from wide open scenes to quick, intimate glances, with sophisticated features that make it simple to capture the feeling of the moment in great detail.

    Optical SteadyShot™ With Intelligent Active Mode

    This image stabilization steadies footage being recorded when shooting conditions or the user's hands are shaky. 5–axis Intelligent Active mode compensates for vibration in five different directions so you can shoot stable high–quality movies even while jogging lightly.

    Rapid AF Response To Capture Decisive Moments

    Fast Intelligent AF achieves very speedy, accurate contrast–detection autofocus by minimizing lens motion, predicting the AF range, and accelerating lens drive, thereby improving response so you can capture more fleeting moments.

    Up To 1.05 In Wide–Angle Lens

    Whether you're shooting movies or still images, the class–leading wide–angle lens can help you capture more of landscapes and indoor scenes, when you don't have enough room to step back. Even without a wide conversion lens, the camcorder shoots as wide as 1.06 inches1 (16:9 aspect ratio) in movie mode.

    Dual Video Recording

    Record two movies at the same time — one in the maximum–quality XAVC S or AVCHD format and another in MP4 format. That way you've got a small file ready for instant sharing, plus a professional–grade file for further editing.

    Time–lapse Capture

    You can capture 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 time–lapse movie.

    Highlight Movie Maker

    A versatile tool to streamline movie editing, Highlight Movie Maker offers several time–saving features. Add highlight markers to key moments while recording, and let the camcorder automatically sync movie transitions to your chosen soundtrack.

    One–touch Remote And One–Touch Sharing

    One–touch remote lets you use your smartphone or tablet as a viewfinder and remote control for a digital camera, and One–touch sharing lets you transfer your photos and videos from your camera. Either way, by installing PlayMemories Mobile app to your NFC enable Android smartphone or tablet, you can avoid complex set–up sequences and establish wireless connection simply by touching your device to the camera. You are now ready to control your camera from your smartphone to take a photo from a previously out–of–reach spot, or simply be in your own group shot, as well as transfer them instantly to your smartphone for sharing on SNS. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually.

    Live Streaming Via USTREAM®

    From performances to sports events, some things are best seen in real time. Share scenes as they happen with high–quality picture and sound.

    My Voice Canceling

    Reduce the intensity of the voice of the user shooting from close behind the camera, whether the user is from talking to subjects or cheering them on.

    5.1ch Surround Sound Microphone

    Record clear sound that accurately captures the atmosphere of the scene, and enjoy surround sound playback on your home theater system. Level meters on the LCD panel provide visual monitoring of each channel's levels.

    30x Optical Zoom

    With a wide–angle lens that is ideal for capturing grand landscapes, the camera also provides 30x optical zoom and up to 60x Clear Image Zoom for versatile image options.

    Exceptional Image Quality

    The high–bitrate XAVC S format16 is for videographers ready to take their work to the next level. Delivering incredible quality, XAVC S is built from the XAVC format used by professional filmmakers and broadcasters, while employing intelligent data compression to export consumer–friendly file sizes.

    Lock–On Autofocus (AF)

    Enhances the tracking of moving subjects by using the optimal AF point at all times, and adjusting the target frame size to match your subject's characteristics. Just touch the subject on LCD to lock on fast–moving targets precisely for shooting.

    Face Detection

    This automatically optimizes focus, exposure, and color for best results. Select someone to be prioritized simply by touching their face on the LCD display, which is useful for selecting a key person when shooting at a crowded event. Even if the subject leaves the frame, they will be remembered and prioritized upon re–entering the scene.

    Smile Shutter

    Because great smiles are fleeting, this feature ensures they're never lost. Automatically capture snapshots of smiling faces, even while recording video.

    Dual Record Mode

    Dual Record mode enables you to shoot HD video and high–resolution still images simultaneously to capture the best shot in both ways.

    Intelligent Auto

    This feature automatically determines the type of scene being shot and optimizes a combination of settings from three groups (Face, Scene, Camera shake). It provides the best results for up to 180 scene types, even at night and in backlit scenes. Selected settings are displayed as icons on the LCD screen for easy reference.

    Picture Effect

    Give free reign to your imagination. Picture Effect expands movie and photo enjoyment by letting you add up to seven creative effects (Partial Color, Retro Photo, Soft High–key, High Contrast Mono, Toy Camera, Pop Color, Posterization) without troublesome editing on a computer.

    Motion Shot Video

    Motion Shot Video plays a sequence of superimposed images that trace recorded action in split–second intervals for you to analyze in detail. During playback, you can adjust the interval, or pause to capture and share a still image.

    Exmor R® CMOS Sensor

    This large, cutting–edge sensor enhances image clarity, reduces noise in dark environments, and enables soft background defocusing.

    BIONZ X™ Image Processor

    The advanced BIONZ X™ image processing engine helps achieve more naturally vivid and lifelike image quality as well as faster processing capabilities.

    Manual Settings For Iris And Shutter Speed

    This camcorder gives you freedom to choose manual settings for iris and shutter speed control when shooting under backlit and underexposed conditions, as well as in other situations.

    9.2 MP Still Image Capture

    Sometimes you don't need — or want — video. Put your video camera in still image mode and capture amazing high–quality 9.2–megapixel single images as easily as you do with a still image camera.

    Auto Wind Noise Reduction

    Using an advanced sound–analysis algorithm, this feature eliminates wind noise – the biggest culprit of bad outdoor audio.
