Dream big, zoom big

Travel, wildlife, and more: pull everything closer with a powerful compact camera that handles and performs like a DSLR. Featuring a huge 50x optical zoom (100x Clear Image Zoom) and a sensitive 20.4MP Exmor™ R CMOS sensor – it delivers highly detailed images whether your subject is up close or far away.

20.4MP Exmor R CMOS sensor

Bring out the detail, even in low light. A back-illuminated 20.4MP Exmor R CMOS sensor has wide receptive areas to allow more light and detail into every frame.

BIONZ X image processor

Expect truer colour rendering, better noise reduction, and faster burst mode shooting with the BIONZ X image processor – it’s 3x more powerful than our previous BIONZ processor, for images of the highest quality.

ZEISS lens

A premium Vario-Sonnar T* ZEISS lens ensures refined handling, silk-smooth autofocus and exceptional light-gathering performance.

50x optical zoom

Distance is no issue. Pull everything closer with huge 50x optical zoom – for pin-sharp clarity in every frame.

Optical SteadyShot

The lens moves gyroscopically and compensates for movements caused by shooting handheld, giving you amazingly sharp pictures across the focal range.

Track the action

Never lose sight of the perfect shot. Lock-on autofocus automatically adjusts frame size based on the characteristics of your subject for clear and defined results.

Handle like a pro

Get the feel and look of a DLSR with easy-to-use controls and an ergonomic grip. Buttons and features are carefully placed and easy to reach, just like a professional camera.

Mode dial

With the mode dial, you can select aperture or shutter priority. A handy control dial for your thumb gives you quick and simple manual control over whichever mode you’ve selected.

LCD screen

See images appear bright and clear on a 921k-dot resolution Xtra Fine LCD WhiteMagic™ 7.5cm (3”) display.

Multi interface shoe

Attach a range of accessories to your camera, like external flashes, studio microphones, and more. The hotshoe powers these fixings to enhance your shooting.

Electronic viewfinder

Take the guesswork out of composing shots. A 201-dot resolution electronic viewfinder gives you a clear, real-time preview with 100% frame coverage – ideal for framing, focusing, and reviewing shots. A built-in eye-sensor automatically switches you between the LCD display and the viewfinder.

Unleash your inner director

Give your home movies the cinematic treatment. Just hit the dedicated movie button to start shooting crisp, clear Full HD movies. Optical SteadyShot Intelligent Active Mode keeps your videos stable and shake-free, even when you’re walking or zooming.

See every trick and transition

A cool effect to show off jumps, tracks, and more with Motion Shot Video. Captured subject movement is displayed in a sequence of superimposed images on a single background.

Create, connect, and share

There’s only one thing better than taking a great photo, and that’s sharing it. With Wi-Fi and NFC built-in you can share your best shots in a second. And with the smartphone remote app you’ll always be in control.

Share with Wi-Fi and NFC

Use NFC to make a connection with Wi-Fi to share your pictures and videos with friends and family.

Make your smartphone a remote control

Change settings, zoom in, and, most importantly, take a shot with the Smartphone Remote App.

Sony HX400V Digital Camera is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very complete and feature packed. Bought it two weeks ago and just enjoyed my first holiday holiday with it. Image stabilization works great, menus are very fast and intuitive and the two manual focus settings are what makes this camera stand out from other bridge cameras. It's not only feature packed, the features are useful and easy to access. NFC works great, watch a photo, tap your phone and send it off. Image quality is great for a bridge/compact camera, access to parameters or changing shooting mode options is very easy. Only downside that I can think of so far would be that it is on the heavy side for a bridge camera, although you get a very sturdy and comfortable feeling body for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trying Zoom I bought the camera two weeks ago so I am still experimenting with it. I primarily wanted a camera with an eye viewer and good optical zoom so I looked at Bridge cameras. I have tried video and I'm happy with it but I have not used it extensively. I am very pleased with the eye viewer which I have adjusted to my right eye so I don't need glasses. I have found that the 50 x optical zoom is more than adequate and have attached a photo of Rathlin island with & without zoom to demonstrate. I am still experimenting with panorama but think I will use it for scenic photos. So far, very pleased with the camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Zoom, Impressive All-Rounder!! Picked this up on 31 March 2015, and have been merrily experimenting with all the features - particularly the extremely impressive zoom lens. Previously I've only ever used a Point & Shoot Compact, so this is a big step up and I intend to fully get to grips with my new toy when I go on holiday shortly, as I have not used all the features fully yet. Apart from the outstanding Zeiss lens, I really like the Electronic View Finder and the sensor that activates the EVF automatically when I bring my face up to it is awesome. Image Stabilisation likewise. The camera feels really good & well-balanced in the hand and is of sturdy construction. I also like the ease of viewing pictures through Wi-Fi on my new Sony W829 Smart TV so no more need for cables. Need a leash for the lens cap though - how much would that have cost, Sony?! And why no battery charger included? Also, the strap is a bit cheap and doesn't feel right. This cost-cutting is in stark contrast with the camera itself being such a quality product, and just smacks a little of meanness, as you ideally want something that really sets your new camera off to its fullest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Optical zoom After seeing my sons Sony HX400V in Boston last December & again in September I then decided that I would change from Nikon to Sony. Main reason for changing ease of use & the clarity of picture.No changing of lenses etc.Just turn on the camera & start shooting. The Sony HX400V is the amateurs photographers dream
