Advanced image sensor and lens

A responsive Exmor R CMOS 20.4 megapixel sensor allows the Sony Cyber-shot HX400VB Bridge Camera to capture high resolution images with lifelike detail and colour reproduction. This back-illuminated sensor keeps noise levels lower for enhanced photographic beauty.

The first-class Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens provides you with stunning photographic power, giving you the freedom to capture between wide-angle 24 mm and 1200 mm telephoto focal lengths.

Its 50x optical zoom lets you get even closer to distant or out-of-the-way subjects, maintaining superb quality for compelling, natural-looking results. When combined with 2x Clear Image Zoom, the lens can reach levels of 100x digital zoom for breathtakingly close shooting.

Steadier focus

The Sony DSCHX400VB features Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation technology that keeps your images clear and sharp by detecting even the smallest movements and rapidly compensating to uphold a pristine resolution - even if you're zooming close or shooting in low-light conditions.

While new Intelligent Active Mode cleverly analyses backward and forward frames to correct any camera shake blur for exceptionally smooth footage. Its Intelligent Active Mode works to intelligently correct movement-related blur in your movies and photos.

Premier processing

All of these great features are driven by the BIONZ X image processing engine, delivering three times the speed of previous BIONZ models for jaw-dropping realism in your images. Image resolution remains reliably high, while both photographs and videos benefit from accurate texture reproduction.

Every shot will look more natural as detail reproduction technology cuts down emphasised outlines and increases detail emphasis. Smart noise reduction ensures images remain clear, even when you're shooting in dim conditions.

Blurring is diminished with diffraction-reducing technology, maintaining excellent levels of detail even while you're shooting at deep focus levels.

Wireless bridge camera features

Take the shot, get creative and share what you've made with the Sony HX400 Bridge Camera, equipped with built-in WiFi and one-touch NFC capabilities.

Share new photos and movies you've captured either on your favourite websites or by email as you pair the camera with your mobile devices.

It's possible to access extra functions and connectivity options when you download apps from the PlayMemories Camera Apps service. Explore the possibilities of Time-lapse, Photo Retouch, Portrait Lighting, synch to smartphone, and much more.

A good example of the Bridge Camera that overall is great value for the price.
The viewfinder image is often a bit blurry and even adjusting the dio control is fiddly and not terribly accurate. That said, the image quality on the rear screen is good.
