        Product information
        Top features:

        - Advanced image sensor and lens help you capture images with lifelike detail

        - Steadier focus for clean and sharp images even with zoom

        - Premier processing means your shots will look more natural

        - Wireless bridge camera features such as WiFi and NFC help you share images

        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.

        Delivering your online order

        Get this delivered when it suits you

        We’ll show you your current delivery options for this item in checkout. Subject to the time you order, and where you want delivery, these options will include:

        • FREE standard delivery in 4-5 working days
        • Next day delivery or any following day between 8am & 5pm (£5.00)
        • Delivery in a timeslot of your choice next day or any following day (£10.00)
        Please note: if we’re out of stock of an item but getting more in, we indicate – on listings pages and the product page – how soon we can dispatch for delivery to you. In this case, please go ahead and order, and we’ll contact you later to confirm an exact delivery date.

        Important update on our delivery service for small items

        Our courier partners (DPD, Royal Mail and On the Dot) have all updated their delivery processes to take extra precautions due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Please follow the below advice:

        1. Customers can use the DPD app to nominate a ‘safe place’ for their delivery to be left if they do not want close contact.

        For customers unable to use the DPD app, DPD is still able to offer a contact-free delivery, and will take a picture of the property and capture a proof of delivery name instead of capturing a customer signature.

        2. Royal Mail is an unsigned service . Where Royal Mail needs to deliver a parcel, its teams will place the parcel at the customer’s door. Having knocked on the door, the delivery teams will step aside to a safe distance while the item is retrieved. If the delivery cannot take place, Royal Mail will take the parcel to the local depot for collection by the customer.  The parcel will be held for 18 days as per normal process.

        3. For On the Dot, where a standard signature delivery is not possible, On the Dot will attempt to leave the parcel in a safe place and inform the customer of where the parcel has been placed.

        To see the courier partner for your delivery, please check your dispatch confirmation email (which will also include your tracking reference).

        Returns and refunds

        Whether an item you’ve bought is faulty or damaged, or you’ve changed your mind, it’s easy to get a refund.

        Items you haven’t opened
        Within 21 days of receiving an item you paid for online, on the phone, or in store you can return it for a full refund – provided your purchase is still in its original and unopened packaging. This promise is in addition to your statutory rights.

        Items you’ve opened
        Within 14 days of receiving an item you paid for online or on the phone, you can return it, even if you’ve opened it. To receive a refund, you must:

        • Physically return it within a further 14 days.
        The item must be returned in ‘as new condition’ – not used or installed, and in its original packaging. More on returns and refunds.

        Order online and collect in store

        Order & Collect ­­– The majority of our stores are now open and offering a collection service, allowing you to safely order online and collect from store contact-free.

        Our stores with parking available can offer a Drive Thru collection experience using the parking bays clearly marked outside the store. Here’s how it works;

        • Once you’ve had confirmation your order is ready to collect, drive to the store.
        • When you’ve arrived, click on the link in your confirmation email to let our team know.
        • One of our colleagues will put your order in your car boot.

        Stores, including those which DO NOT have parking outside, can still offer a safe Walk Up service. We have safety measures in place to keep you and our staff protected whilst you queue. Here’s how it works;

        • Once you’ve had confirmation your order is ready to collect, walk to store and head to the collection point.
        • When you’ve arrived, click on the link in your confirmation email to let our team know.
        • You’ll get a text when our colleague is preparing your order for collection.
        • Please remember to keep 2 metres away from our colleagues and other customers.

        If the store already has stock of your item, you may be able to collect on the same day. If your store doesn’t have stock, we can get some in, but it may take a little longer. Don’t forget to wait for your ready to collect email and check store opening hours and whether the store can offer Drive Thru, Walk Up or both collection options before heading out.

        We strongly recommend that you check whether you will be able to carry the item, or whether it will fit in your vehicle before placing your order.
