The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400 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 HX400 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. A dedicated video record button starts shooting immediately and with dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both photos and videos at the same time.
Fast 10fps Continuous Burst Shooting & Lock-On AF
Ideal for sports photography, the HX400 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.
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 groups 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.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V is a rather modest update of last year's HX300 model, principally adding a faster Bionz X processor, useful multi interface shoe, and Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity and built-in GPS.
The Sony Cybershot DSC-HX400V is one of the more expensive 50x optical cameras available, but the extra money means better image quality. The camera body also has a higher level of quality, with the EVF automatically switching on when you put your eye to it being a nice touch.
Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V: Lots of impressive features but image quality from the Sony HX400V is unexceptional
With a 50x optical zoom and a 20.4-million-pixel sensor, the Cyber-shot DSC-HX400 is Sony’s latest bridge camera. Callum McInerney-Riley puts it to the test
The Sony DSC-HX400V digital camera is ergonomically designed, with a large side handle that makes it easier to hold, in perfect SLR. The rear part is occupied by a 3-inch LCD display variable angle with a resolution of 921 000 points, and an electronic viewfinder, while the manual controls are...
Sony's Cyber-shot HX400V is the company's flagship long super-zoom camera.

I have been using this for about a year now and can’t complain. I am no photographer but happy with this, particularly x 50 zoom for birds and wild life. Also works great in low light as I often seem to be out and about very early or later in the day.
I suffer from arthritis in my hands and as a result I bought the HX400V so I did not have to change lenses through the day. It is fantastic for my needs, I am not professional and this camera is perfect for my visits to the Zoo and seaside etc.. I would recommend this to anybody.
I admit it's a bit early for a review because I've only had the camera for eleven days but my first impressions are that I am very pleased. So, I'm still on a learning curve not only with the camera but with photography in general. Previously I've only really taken holiday snaps etc.
Not used this camera much yet., but so far it’s been great. Nice clear pictures at all ranges, light and easy to use. Great features I have not explored them all yet, only slight negative is the EVF is not as bright as DSLR the automatic switching is a nice touch when put up to your eye.
Really good camera. got it to replace a sony A230 and it really good and easy to use. manual and automatic functions. light and comfortable to hold and use. for me it is just as good as the more expensive cameras.
As Bridge cameras go this is fantastic and i have taken some really cracking photos using this, as good as dslr pics in my opinion
I recently sold my DSLR as I wanted something smaller where I didn't have to keep changing lenses to get a better zoom. This camera is the replacement. The zoom is incredible, the features are practically the same as a DSLR, so many options to choose from.
Have used the camera a couple of times. It takes a great photo, and I like the zoom. I chose this camera for its WiFi capabilities, but have found transfering photos to my phone hit and miss, even with the app. Maybe this is something Sony can work on. Overall I'm pleased with my purchase.
I bought this camera for distance photography, the lens is brilliant. I live on the Isle of Wight and have taken photographs of Portsmouth, 4 miles away.
Seems like a useful, widely capable camera but the EVF is poor compared to the other cameras that I have.
Great camera with plenty of readily usable functions. The right size and weight for me. Great value for money. Really good clear pictures.
I chose this camera to have an all round model rather than the SLR I normally use. The sony is brilliant I cannot fault it. I love the ipanorama feature. The pictures are sharp and the zoom is just what I needed. I would recommend this to anyone.
50x Optical Zoom, WiFi, Zeiss lens.
