  • Great Camera for Beginner
    Verified BuyerReviewed by PaulR - December 12, 2017

    Very nice Camera. Ye gods!!!! This thing is no bigger than a soda can and weighs almost nothing. The quality of the lens is fantastic. I zoomed into my computer from about thirty feet away and was able to read a Wiki article through the camera. The menus take a little getting used to, but this thing is really pretty decent. Sound quality could be a tiny bit better, but everything you need is here. They've even got this cool setup where the USB is actually attached to the camera and tucks into the hand strap so you won't lose it. Charging wire is separated and easily connects. I wouldn't want to drop this on concrete as it doesn't look like it's built for punishment.

  • Awesome action camera
    Reviewed by Emma867 - April 18, 2018

    I got this camera for Christmas in 2017 and so far it has been awesome! I love the cameras! I have gotten some amazing films and and great pictures! I went on a cruise Andy me and my friends vloged and it had great focus and zoom! The battery was even better than I thought it was going to be! This camera has helped see what I am and am not doing right when training dog agility and hopefully it will do good with dog dock diving! I took it on a river trip and it did pretty good! Just don't get it to close to water. I am taking it turkey hunting this weekend and currently I am looking for a remote for it. Hopefully it last long because I love it! It's a great camera for the price!

  • Very decent camcorder for the price
    Reviewed by John Carroll - December 22, 2016

    We needed to replace our old Sony DCR-TRV310 so I researched all of the latest Sony models and in my opinion the CX455 one offered the best bang for the buck (especially if you can get it on sale). It does exactly what I need. It shoots footage in the highest quality and also in a smaller sized MP4 version at the same time so no more having to convert video files before uploading footage to online services. The optics does not seem quite as nice as my TRV310 but it is a much smaller camera and lens. But still excellent quality for everyday use and the portability is amazing (small and light). I considered the CX405 but I feel that it was worth the extra money for the CX455. Haven't utilized all of the features yet but this has been my experience to far.
