  • Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V Digital Camera

    The black Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V Digital Camera is a high-zoom camera that offers ease of use akin to a point-and-shot, but with the design and control of a DSLR. It features a 20.4MP 1/2.3" Exmor R CMOS sensor and a BIONZ X Image Processor for notable low light performance, as well as a 50x optical zoom Carl Zeiss Vario Sonnar T lens with a 100x Clear Image Zoom. A 4.3-215mm focal length with a 35mm equivalent of 24-1200mm allows this lens significant wide-angle and considerable telephoto shooting abilities. It also features a wide 2.8 aperture, which is especially useful in low-light as it allows for brighter images.

    A 3" Xtra Fine 921k-dot tilting LCD monitor as well as an electronic eye-level viewfinder allow you to view and compose high-quality images. Capture full HD 1080p AVCHD video at 60p and 24p and use the optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization to compensate for camera shake in order to provide clearer images. This is especially useful in low light and when using the longer focal lengths. For sports photography and during motion-filled photo capturing moments, the HX400V features 10 frames per second continuous shooting at the full 20.4MP resolution, which ensures sharp, clear images that are less likely to be missed.

    To capture a wide area all in one photo, Intelligent Sweep Panorama utilizes motion compensation while shooting panoramas in order to reduce the blur created by moving figures in the foreground. For easy uploading after a long day of shooting, a built-in Wi-Fi allows you to instantly share what you have created with your family and friends.

    20.4MP Exmor R CMOS Sensor & BIONZ X Image Processor
    Captures high definition images with sharp details and minimal noise, even in low light; offers fast performance and buffering speeds.
    50x Optical Zoom Zeiss Lens & 100x Clear Image Zoom
    A Carl Zeiss lens with 50x optical zoom capability offers a considerable expanse of reach from wide-angle to super-telephoto. This zoom range can effectively be doubled, too, using the 100x Clear Image Zoom that employs an intelligent interpolation algorithm to increase zoom magnification with minimal image quality loss.
    3" Xtra Fine 921k-Dot LCD Monitor & Eye-Level Viewfinder
    Still photos and videos can be clearly displayed on the 3" Xtra Fine tilting LCD monitor with 921k-dot resolution and an available histogram. Additionally, you can manually adjust the brightness level by 5 steps allowing you to compose and view your images in any lighting situation. For extra shooting stability, an electronic viewfinder is also provided for eye-level composition. It allows for magnifications of 8.1x and 16.2x and becomes useful for viewing and composing shots in extreme sunlight.
    Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization with Intelligent Active Mode
    Optical SteadyShot image stabilization offers compensation to reduce the blurring effects of camera movement when shooting at slower shutter speeds. This is particularly effective when shooting in low light or at longer focal lengths. Sony's Intelligent Active Mode image stabilization combines electronic and optical stabilization for less blurring while shooting videos when moving.
    Full 1080p AVCHD Video Capture
    You can capture full 1080p AVCHD videos with stereo sound at 60p, and 24p for a film look. SteadyShot Active Mode offers image stabilization for video that will smooth out clips shot while moving, and a dedicated video record button allows you to start shooting immediately.
    Fast 10fps Continuous Burst Shooting & Lock-On AF
    Ideal for sports photography, the HX400V can shoot up to 10 frames per second in full 20.4MP resolution, and has Lock-On AF, which provides the ability to focus on multiple points with subject recognition to keep your subject in sharp focus even when in motion.
    Intelligent Sweep Panorama 360˚
    Intelligent Sweep Panorama mode takes Sony's Sweep Panorama function to the next level with the addition of motion compensation. Even when subjects are moving in the foreground of your landscape, these cameras can detect faces and moving subjects, intelligently stitching different widths together to minimize distortion. Simply press the shutter button and sweep the camera in the desired direction and the camera continuously shoots at a high speed, then seamlessly stitches the images together with automatic position adjustment to create one stunning panoramic image. Available in wide format and up to 360° full circle.
    Superior Auto
    This enables the camera to select optimal settings based on scene recognition and provides crisp, beautiful results even in low-light situations.
    Manual Exposure Control
    Manual control of aperture, shutter speed and ISO is offered with P/A/S/M modes.
    Motion Shot Video
    For a unique visual effect, use the Motion Shot Video to trace subject movement on the LCD. This playback function allows you to study form and pathways of moving subjects right on your camera.
    Face Detection, Tracking Focus & Smile Shutter
    Face Detection allows you to take better portraits and group shots. It recognizes up to 8 faces within your image and adjusts the camera for optimal exposure of faces. Tracking Focus makes it easier to capture clear shots of moving subjects by having the focus automatically adjust while you follow the action with the camera, and Smile Shutter Technology helps you get the best shot by recognizing when is the best moment to release the shutter.
    Built-In Wi-Fi Connectivity & NFC
    Wi-Fi lets you quickly upload photos and videos to social media sites through your smartphone or tablet, back them up on your network-connected computer, or view them on a wireless-enabled HDTV. When transferring images to Android smartphones or tablets, the camera also supports NFC, or Near Field Communication, providing a simple, "one touch connection" requiring you to merely touch the devices to connect.
    Built-In Flash & Multi Interface Hot Shoe
    A built-in manual pop-up flash offers available flash modes such as Auto, Fill-flash, Off, Slow-Sync, Advanced Flash and Rear Sync, as well as a wireless mode with optional compliant external flashes, which can also be used on the multi-interface hot shoe when you need a flash with more range.
    GPS Tagged Photos & PlayMemories Camera Apps
    Map your photos and videos with location data and camera direction with the GPS tag. GPS Log lets you track a photographic journey and images on a map. The GPS and PlayMemories Home software allows users to view images on a map where they can also be displayed on Google Earth. PlayMemories allows for applying creative effects or retouching images, which can then be easily uploaded to your social media account. Enjoy various Apps including Time Lapse, Smart Remote Control, and Direct Upload.
    Erase and Protect Features
    Protecting images can be done in various modes such as single image, selection of images, and by date, and erasing images can be done with the same modes, in addition to arranging it by folder.
    4K Quality Still Images
    For 4x the resolution of full HD, enjoy the beauty of 4K quality still images with an optional HDMI connection to compatible 4K TVs. The camera can also be connected via HDMI to HDTVs for full HD 1080p resolution images.

Sony DSC-HX400 reviews

Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V Digital Camera with Free Accessory Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right out of the box Even though I'm no tech wizard or pro-foto aspirant, it took only a few minutes to go from opening the box to taking satisfying photographs. I look forward to exploring the relevant features over the coming weeks and months. As well, it was obvious (and appreciated) that the case that came with the kit was sized just right for the camera. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely in love I bought this camera after months of preparation and inquiries into the best kind of camera to get for two upcoming overseas trips and to get me started in the world of photography. This one is perfect. The zoom is incredible, the detail phenomenal, and the image-stabilization is near perfection. I've taken it to baseball games, along walks in Manhattan, and I'm excited to see what it does while traveling. It's lightweight and powerful, and gets just the right stuff I need with minimal effort, while also offering enough customization options to make it fun to play with. I'm first and foremost a hobbyist; I'm not liking for anything fancy. But this little guy does it all and then some I feel like I have something so much more powerful. This camera and the accessory kit was the perfect deal and the perfect option for me. Haven't looked back, and the entire way I look at the world has now changed. It's that good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony Camera easy to use and lots of features Nice features are the wireless transfer, tilting screen, extra range telephoto lens, fits in my hand very nicely. I like that the kit came with the bag and a memory card, making it a ready to go system.
Date published: 2017-05-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This camera is better than expected. This camera was purchased as a supplement to my Sony A560 digital SLR. To be used specifically for travel when I don't want to carry all of my DSLR equipment.
Date published: 2017-05-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for money I strongly recommend the product. Excelent photos and videos by a good price. Does not record 4K videos, but records full HD and, let's be honest, 4K is not important. Comes with a good case a reasanable memory card.
Date published: 2018-01-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera, poor manufacture support for manual. It's fine BUT I'm waiting for the printed instruction manual that costs $19 from another merchant. Sony only offers a download. Cheap!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a Sony ! What else do you need to know ? I'm 81 years old and there is probably more camera here then I'll ever learn to use , but there are also great photos available if you never move off of auto ! So I should stay happy for a while .
