8 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony HDRAS300W

Remote Operation

The Sony HDRAS300W supports remote operation, but the Sony HDRCX440, the Sony HDRCX455, the Sony HDRCX675B and the Sony HDRPJ440 do not. More ...

'Remote Operation' denotes whether the camcorder can be controlled (start/stop recording) by a separate remote, or whether all control has to happen on the device itself.

A remotely operated camera is helpful because it allows you to mount the camera on a tripod and be in your own movies.

Built-in Microphone

The Sony HDRAS300W has a built-in microphone, and so do the Sony HDRCX455, the Sony HDRCX675B and the Sony HDRPJ440, however the Sony HDRCX440 does not. More ...

'Built-In Microphone' denotes whether the camcorder has a microphone built into the body of the device, in order to record audio along with the video.

A built-in microphone isn't going to be as high quality as a professional mic, but it's a good alternative if you want to record audio alongside your home videos.

Bluetooth

The Sony HDRAS300W supports bluetooth, whereas the Sony HDRCX440, the Sony HDRCX455, the Sony HDRCX675B and the Sony HDRPJ440 do not. More ...

'Bluetooth' indicates whether the camcorder supports bluetooth, a communication protocol frequently used with accessories such as wireless flash units.

Waterproof

The Sony HDRAS300W is a waterproof camcorder, however the Sony HDRCX440, the Sony HDRCX455, the Sony HDRCX675B and the Sony HDRPJ440 are not. More ...

'Waterproof' denotes whether the camcorder is resistant against liquid - so can be safely immersed in water without causing problems.

Waterproof cameras allow you to safely take your camera out on a boat or to the beach without worrying about damage. It also allows for some visually stunning underwater videos!

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony HDRAS300W

97% Smaller Optical Zoom

The Sony HDRAS300W is a 1x optical zoom camcorder. That's 29x smaller than the Sony HDRCX440, the Sony HDRCX455, the Sony HDRCX675B and the Sony HDRPJ440 (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.

30.5g Heavier

The Sony HDRAS300W has a weight of 107g, whereas the Sony HDRCX440 is a 190g camcorder (83g heavier), the Sony HDRCX455 is a 250.04g camcorder (143.04g heavier), the Sony HDRCX675B is a 76.5g camcorder (30.5g lighter) and the Sony HDRPJ440 is a 210g camcorder (103g 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.

Smaller Total Megapixels

The Sony HDRAS300W is an 8.57MP camcorder. That's 6.28MP bigger than the Sony HDRCX440 (2.29MP) and 0.63MP smaller than the Sony HDRCX455, the Sony HDRCX675B and the Sony HDRPJ440 (9.2MP). 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.

31% Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The Sony HDRAS300W has a maximum aperture number of 2.8. That's 1 higher than the Sony HDRCX440 (1.8) and 1.2 lower than the Sony HDRCX455, the Sony HDRCX675B and the Sony HDRPJ440 (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.

Fewer Sellers

The Sony HDRAS300W is only stocked by 5 retailers, but the Sony HDRCX455 is stocked by 6 sellers and the Sony HDRCX675B is stocked by 6 shops. More ...

The fewer the number of shops that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Older by Four Months

The Sony HDRAS300W is four months older than the Sony HDRCX440 and four months older than the Sony HDRPJ440.

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 18.3% of 60 customers recommend the Sony HDRAS300W, but 72.7% of 139 customers recommend the Sony HDRCX440 and 70.2% of 258 customers recommend the Sony HDRPJ440.

12 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony HDRCX455

29x Bigger Optical Zoom

The Sony HDRCX455 has an optical zoom of 30x (as do the Sony HDRCX440, the Sony HDRCX675B and the Sony HDRPJ440), but the Sony HDRAS300W is only a 1x optical zoom camcorder (29x 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.

A Lot Bigger Total Megapixels

The Sony HDRCX455 has a total megapixels of 9.2MP (as do the Sony HDRCX675B and the Sony HDRPJ440), however the Sony HDRAS300W is only an 8.57MP camcorder (0.63MP smaller) and the Sony HDRCX440 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.

2.2 Higher Maximum Aperture Number

The Sony HDRCX455 is a 4 maximum aperture value camcorder (as do the Sony HDRCX675B and the Sony HDRPJ440), whereas the Sony HDRAS300W is only a 2.8 maximum aperture value camcorder (1.2 lower) and the Sony HDRCX440 is only a 1.8 maximum aperture value camcorder (2.2 lower). 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.

Full HD

The Sony HDRCX455 is Full HD, and so are the Sony HDRCX675B and the Sony HDRPJ440, whereas the Sony HDRAS300W and the Sony HDRCX440 are not. More ...

A full HD camcorder captures video with a minimum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD camcorders capture more pixels which make the recording appear sharper compared to camcorders with a lower resolution.

Face Detection

The Sony HDRCX455 has a face detection, and so do the Sony HDRCX675B and the Sony HDRPJ440, but the Sony HDRAS300W and the Sony HDRCX440 do not. More ...

'Face Detection' indicates whether the camcorder has the ability to detect faces while recording, allowing it to automatically make sure they remain in full focus.

Face detection makes it far easier to make sure that people always appear in full focus, meaning no messed up videos due to bad focus.

Smile Detection

The Sony HDRCX455 features smile detection, and so do the Sony HDRCX675B and the Sony HDRPJ440, but the Sony HDRAS300W and the Sony HDRCX440 do not. More ...

Smile detection is a system to automatically detect when people in the camcorder's shot are smiling, and pull focus towards them to make sure they're always in full focus.

Built-in Flash

The Sony HDRCX455 has a built-in flash, and so does the Sony HDRCX675B, but the Sony HDRAS300W, the Sony HDRCX440 and the Sony HDRPJ440 do not. More ...

'Built-in Flash' denotes whether the camcorder has a flash unit built into it, or whether you have to rely on natural lighting or external flash units.

0.3" Larger Display Diagonal

Sony HDRCX455 is 3" screen size (as does the Sony HDRCX675B), but the Sony HDRPJ440 is only a 2.7" screen size camcorder (0.3" smaller). More ...

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to record and review video and images.

Built-in Microphone

The Sony HDRCX455 has a built-in microphone (as do the Sony HDRAS300W, the Sony HDRCX675B and the Sony HDRPJ440), whereas the Sony HDRCX440 does not have this feature. More ...

'Built-In Microphone' denotes whether the camcorder has a microphone built into the body of the device, in order to record audio along with the video.

A built-in microphone isn't going to be as high quality as a professional mic, but it's a good alternative if you want to record audio alongside your home videos.

HDMI

The Sony HDRCX455 supports HDMI, and so do the Sony HDRCX675B and the Sony HDRPJ440, but the Sony HDRAS300W and the Sony HDRCX440 do not. More ...

'HDMI' denotes whether the camcorder has an HDMI connection, allowing it to connect directly to TVs and monitors.

An HDMI connection allows you to display the videos you take in high definition on your TV or computer monitor, making it easy to stage screenings for family and friends!

Near Field Communication (NFC)

The Sony HDRCX455 supports Near Field Communication (NFC), and so do the Sony HDRCX675B and the Sony HDRPJ440, whereas the Sony HDRAS300W and the Sony HDRCX440 do not. More ...

Near Field Communications (NFC) allows the camcorder to wirelessly communicate with smartphones over very short distances (<1m).

NFC can be used to transfer videos and photos from your camcorder direct to your phone, where you can then share them with friends or upload to Facebook/Twitter/etc.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this camcorder and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony HDRCX455

41% Heavier

The Sony HDRCX455 is a 250.04g camcorder. That's 143.04g heavier than the Sony HDRAS300W (107g), 60.04g heavier than the Sony HDRCX440 (190g), 173.54g heavier than the Sony HDRCX675B (76.5g) and 40.04g heavier than the Sony HDRPJ440 (210g). More ...

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

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

Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Sony HDRCX455 is a 2.29MP camcorder, and so does the Sony HDRCX675B. That's 6.91MP lower than the Sony HDRPJ440 (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.

75% Smaller Internal Storage Capacity

The Sony HDRCX455 is an 8GB internal storage capacity camcorder. That's 24GB smaller than the Sony HDRCX675B (32GB). More ...

'Internal Storage Capacity' denotes how much storage space comes pre-installed on the camcorder.

A larger internal storage means you will be able to record more video before needing to use a memory card to increase the storage capacity.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sony HDRCX455 has received a Kagoo Score of 85, but the Sony HDRAS300W scored 87.

$110 More Expensive

Five Months Older

The Sony HDRCX455 is older than the Sony HDRAS300W by one month, older than the Sony HDRCX440 by five months and older than the Sony HDRPJ440 by five months. The Sony HDRCX455 is the same age as the Sony HDRCX675B.

Lower User Review Score

The Sony HDRCX455 has an average user rating of 86%, but the Sony HDRAS300W has an average user rating of 93% (based on 12 reviews), the Sony HDRCX440 has an average user rating of 90% (based on 122 reviews) and the Sony HDRPJ440 has an average user rating of 88% (based on 204 reviews).

The cheapest price that we found for the HDRCX455 in the United States is $348.00 and in total we found 6 prices for it.

15 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony HDRPJ440

50% Bigger Optical Zoom

The Sony HDRPJ440 is a 30x optical zoom camcorder, and so do the Sony HDRCX440, the Sony HDRCX455 and the Sony HDRCX675B. That's 29x bigger than the Sony HDRAS300W (1x). 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.

Bigger Total Megapixels

The Sony HDRPJ440 is a 9.2MP camcorder, and so do the Sony HDRCX455 and the Sony HDRCX675B. That's 0.63MP bigger than the Sony HDRAS300W (8.57MP) and 6.91MP bigger than the Sony HDRCX440 (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.

36% Higher Maximum Aperture Number

The Sony HDRPJ440 has a maximum aperture number of 4, and so do the Sony HDRCX455 and the Sony HDRCX675B. That's 1.2 higher than the Sony HDRAS300W (2.8) and 2.2 higher than the Sony HDRCX440 (1.8). 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.

Full HD

The Sony HDRPJ440 is a Full HD camcorder (as are the Sony HDRCX455 and the Sony HDRCX675B), however the Sony HDRAS300W and the Sony HDRCX440 are not. More ...

A full HD camcorder captures video with a minimum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD camcorders capture more pixels which make the recording appear sharper compared to camcorders with a lower resolution.

6.91MP Higher Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Sony HDRPJ440 has an effective megapixels (image) of 9.2MP, whereas the Sony HDRCX455 and the Sony HDRCX675B are both only 2.29MP camcorders (6.91MP lower). 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.

Face Detection

The Sony HDRPJ440 has a face detection (as do the Sony HDRCX455 and the Sony HDRCX675B), whereas the Sony HDRAS300W and the Sony HDRCX440 do not have this feature. More ...

'Face Detection' indicates whether the camcorder has the ability to detect faces while recording, allowing it to automatically make sure they remain in full focus.

Face detection makes it far easier to make sure that people always appear in full focus, meaning no messed up videos due to bad focus.

Smile Detection

The Sony HDRPJ440 features smile detection (as do the Sony HDRCX455 and the Sony HDRCX675B), whereas the Sony HDRAS300W and the Sony HDRCX440 do not feature this benefit. More ...

Smile detection is a system to automatically detect when people in the camcorder's shot are smiling, and pull focus towards them to make sure they're always in full focus.

Built-in Microphone

The Sony HDRPJ440 has a built-in microphone, and so do the Sony HDRAS300W, the Sony HDRCX455 and the Sony HDRCX675B, however the Sony HDRCX440 does not. More ...

'Built-In Microphone' denotes whether the camcorder has a microphone built into the body of the device, in order to record audio along with the video.

A built-in microphone isn't going to be as high quality as a professional mic, but it's a good alternative if you want to record audio alongside your home videos.

HDMI

The Sony HDRPJ440 supports HDMI (as do the Sony HDRCX455 and the Sony HDRCX675B), whereas the Sony HDRAS300W and the Sony HDRCX440 do not support this feature. More ...

'HDMI' denotes whether the camcorder has an HDMI connection, allowing it to connect directly to TVs and monitors.

An HDMI connection allows you to display the videos you take in high definition on your TV or computer monitor, making it easy to stage screenings for family and friends!

Near Field Communication (NFC)

The Sony HDRPJ440 supports Near Field Communication (NFC) (as do the Sony HDRCX455 and the Sony HDRCX675B), however the Sony HDRAS300W and the Sony HDRCX440 do not support this feature. More ...

Near Field Communications (NFC) allows the camcorder to wirelessly communicate with smartphones over very short distances (<1m).

NFC can be used to transfer videos and photos from your camcorder direct to your phone, where you can then share them with friends or upload to Facebook/Twitter/etc.

Built-in Projector

The Sony HDRPJ440 has a built-in projector, but the Sony HDRAS300W, the Sony HDRCX440, the Sony HDRCX455 and the Sony HDRCX675B do not have this feature. More ...

'Built-in Projector' denotes whether the camcorder has an internal projector or not.
