4 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony HDRCX440B

29x Bigger Optical Zoom

The Sony HDRCX440B has an optical zoom of 30 (as do the Sony HDRCX405 and the Sony HDRCX455B), however the Sony HDRAS300W is only a 1x optical zoom camcorder (29x smaller) and the Sony HDRCX240L is only a 27x optical zoom camcorder (3x smaller). More ...

An optical zoom lets you enlarge the subject without having to move closer to it.

An optical zoom lets you zoom without loosing image quality. Digital zooms will simply enlarge the pixels and make the image look blurry.

Wi-Fi

The Sony HDRCX440B features Wi-Fi, and so do the Sony HDRAS300W and the Sony HDRCX455B, however the Sony HDRCX240L and the Sony HDRCX405 do not. More ...

'Wi-Fi' denotes whether the camcorder is capable of connecting to the net via wifi, in order to upload videos and images.

A wireless connection on your camcorder allows you to easily transfer videos to your computer, store them on the cloud or upload them to Facebook, all without having to worry about connecting via a wire.

Better Kagoo Score

The Sony HDRCX440B has received a Kagoo Score of 88, however the Sony HDRAS300W scored 87, the Sony HDRCX240L scored 86, the Sony HDRCX405 scored 86 and the Sony HDRCX455B scored 86.

Has a Better Lens That Was Good

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Sony HDRCX440B has a better lens that was good. Over 10 people thought that it had a brilliant zoom.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony HDRCX440B

31% Heavier

The Sony HDRCX440B is a 190 camcorder, and so do the Sony HDRCX240L and the Sony HDRCX405. That's 83g heavier than the Sony HDRAS300W (107g) and 60.04g lighter than the Sony HDRCX455B (250.04g). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

Significantly Smaller Total Megapixels

The Sony HDRCX440B has a total megapixels of 2.29, whereas the Sony HDRAS300W is an 8.57MP camcorder (6.28MP bigger) and the Sony HDRCX240L, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Sony HDRCX455B are all 9.2MP camcorders (6.91MP bigger). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

2.2 Lower Maximum Aperture Number

Sony HDRCX440B is only 1.8 maximum aperture value (as does the Sony HDRCX405), but the Sony HDRAS300W is a 2.8 maximum aperture value camcorder (1 higher) and the Sony HDRCX455B is a 4 maximum aperture value camcorder (2.2 higher). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

$115 More Expensive

The Sony HDRCX440B is more expensive than the Sony HDRCX240L by $115 and more expensive than the Sony HDRCX405 by $99.

Less Retailers

Only 6 retailers sells the Sony HDRCX440B, whereas 7 shops sell the Sony HDRCX405. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this camcorder and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.
A Little Lower User Review Score

The Sony HDRCX440B's average user rating is 90%, however the Sony HDRAS300W's is 93% (based on 12 reviews).

A Little Lower Overall Review Score

The Sony HDRCX440B's average overall rating is 90%, however the Sony HDRAS300W's is 93% (based on 18 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 62.7% of 161 customers recommend the Sony HDRCX440B, whereas 63.7% of 724 customers recommend the Sony HDRCX405.

Has a Worse Price

The Sony HDRCX440B reviewers thought the Sony HDRCX440B has a worse price.

A Worse Size

The Sony HDRCX440B reviewers thought the Sony HDRCX440B was a worse size.

Harder to Use

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Sony HDRCX440B was harder to use.

Has Worse Technical Features

On average reviewers thought the Sony HDRCX440B has worse technical features.

Worse Great Video Quality

On average reviewers thought the Sony HDRCX440B was worse great video quality.

The cheapest price that we could find for the HDRCX440B in the US is $195.00 and in total we found 6 prices for it.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony HDRAS300W

143.04g Lighter

The Sony HDRAS300W has a weight of 107, however the Sony HDRCX240L, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Sony HDRCX440B are all 190g camcorders (83g heavier) and the Sony HDRCX455B is a 250.04g camcorder (143.04g heavier). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

Remote Operation

The Sony HDRAS300W supports remote operation, and so does the Sony HDRCX405, whereas the Sony HDRCX240L, the Sony HDRCX440B and the Sony HDRCX455B do not. More ...

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony HDRAS300W

Smaller Optical Zoom

The Sony HDRAS300W is a 1 optical zoom camcorder. That's 26x smaller than the Sony HDRCX240L (27x) and 29x smaller than the Sony HDRCX405, the Sony HDRCX440B and the Sony HDRCX455B (30x). More ...

An optical zoom lets you enlarge the subject without having to move closer to it.

An optical zoom lets you zoom without loosing image quality. Digital zooms will simply enlarge the pixels and make the image look blurry.

7% Smaller Total Megapixels

The Sony HDRAS300W is an 8.57 camcorder. That's 0.63MP smaller than the Sony HDRCX240L, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Sony HDRCX455B (9.2MP) and 6.28MP bigger than the Sony HDRCX440B (2.29MP). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

Lower Maximum Aperture Number

Sony HDRAS300W is only 2.8 maximum aperture value. That's 1 higher than the Sony HDRCX405 and the Sony HDRCX440B (1.8) and 1.2 lower than the Sony HDRCX455B (4). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sony HDRAS300W has received a Kagoo Score of 87, however the Sony HDRCX440B scored 88.

More Expensive by $218

The Sony HDRAS300W is $218 more expensive than the Sony HDRCX240L, $202 more expensive than the Sony HDRCX405 and $103 more expensive than the Sony HDRCX440B.

Less Retailers

The Sony HDRAS300W is only stocked by 4 sellers, whereas the Sony HDRCX405 is stocked by 7 stores, the Sony HDRCX440B is stocked by 6 shops and the Sony HDRCX455B is stocked by 6 shops. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this camcorder remaining in stock.
Older by Four Months

The Sony HDRAS300W is four months older than the Sony HDRCX440B.

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 16.7% of 66 customers recommend the Sony HDRAS300W, whereas 62.4% of 447 customers recommend the Sony HDRCX240L, 63.7% of 724 customers recommend the Sony HDRCX405 and 62.7% of 161 customers recommend the Sony HDRCX440B.

Worse Great Video Quality

On average reviewers thought the Sony HDRAS300W was worse great video quality.

The cheapest price that we could find for the HDRAS300W in the US is $297.99 and in total we found 4 prices for it.

6.91MP Bigger Total Megapixels

The Sony HDRCX455B has a total megapixels of 9.2 (as do the Sony HDRCX240L and the Sony HDRCX405), but the Sony HDRAS300W is only an 8.57MP camcorder (0.63MP smaller) and the Sony HDRCX440B is only a 2.29MP camcorder (6.91MP smaller). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays.

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

8% Bigger Digital Zoom

The Sony HDRCX455B has a digital zoom of 350, and so does the Sony HDRCX405. That's 30x bigger than the Sony HDRCX240L (320x). More ...

A digital zoom enlarges the pixels in a digital image to make the subject appear closer. Using digital zoom can result in images becoming blurry as the underlying image remains the same.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge a subject without having to move closer. Digital zoom can be used as an alternative to an optical zoom, although it will result in a loss of image quality.

A Lot Higher Maximum Aperture Number

The Sony HDRCX455B has a maximum aperture number of 4, however the Sony HDRAS300W is only a 2.8 maximum aperture value camcorder (1.2 lower) and the Sony HDRCX405 and the Sony HDRCX440B are both only 1.8 maximum aperture value camcorders (2.2 lower). More ...

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony HDRCX455B

Heavier

The Sony HDRCX455B is a 250.04 camcorder. That's 143.04g heavier than the Sony HDRAS300W (107g) and 60.04g heavier than the Sony HDRCX240L, the Sony HDRCX405 and the Sony HDRCX440B (190g). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

76% Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Sony HDRCX455B is a 2.29 camcorder, and so does the Sony HDRCX405. That's 6.91MP lower than the Sony HDRCX240L (9.2MP). More ...

The resolution of the images a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Sony HDRCX455B supports a still image resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), which is 4 times lower still image resolution as the Sony HDRCX240L (4032 x 2272). We do not know what type of still image resolution the Sony HDRCX440B support. More ...

Image resolution is a measurement of how many pixels make up a single image taken with the camcorder.

A higher image resolution means that the photos taken with the camcorder will be more detailed and sharper, and you'll be able to pick out smaller detailed far better. They will also far more suited to being enlarged, and can be blown up to larger sizes without blurring or losing detail.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sony HDRCX455B has received a Kagoo Score of 86, whereas the Sony HDRAS300W scored 87 and the Sony HDRCX440B scored 88.

$249 More Expensive

The Sony HDRCX455B is more expensive than the Sony HDRAS300W by $31, more expensive than the Sony HDRCX240L by $249, more expensive than the Sony HDRCX405 by $233 and more expensive than the Sony HDRCX440B by $134.

Fewer Sellers

Only 6 stores sells the Sony HDRCX455B, but 7 retailers sell the Sony HDRCX405. More ...

The smaller the number of retailers that stock this camcorder, the lower the competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.
Five Months Older

The Sony HDRCX455B is older than the Sony HDRAS300W by one month and older than the Sony HDRCX440B by five months.

15 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony HDRCX240L

6.91MP Bigger Total Megapixels

The Sony HDRCX240L has a total megapixels of 9.2 (as do the Sony HDRCX405 and the Sony HDRCX455B), whereas the Sony HDRAS300W is only an 8.57MP camcorder (0.63MP smaller) and the Sony HDRCX440B is only a 2.29MP camcorder (6.91MP smaller). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

Full HD

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

19 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony HDRCX405

31% Heavier

The Sony HDRCX405 is a 190 camcorder, and so do the Sony HDRCX240L and the Sony HDRCX440B. That's 83g heavier than the Sony HDRAS300W (107g) and 60.04g lighter than the Sony HDRCX455B (250.04g). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)
