    The HX400V is a Big Step Forward for Sony, April 5, 2014

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Sony HX400V/B 20.4 MP Digital Camera (Electronics)
    I couldn’t care less about a few silly post-capture, in-camera picture effects. The purpose of a good camera is to take pictures out in the field, not play around with them afterward. There’s plenty of time for that, after you get home.

    The image quality and the quick, effective functions of this model, put it far ahead of the deficient HX300 of last year. I sent that one back after 5 days, but this one is a keeper. Even at full-size, most of its photos look presentable and at normal full-screen viewing sizes, they are sparkling good. I didn’t think anyone could put 21 Megapixels on a tiny sensor like this and get good results, but Sony has proved me wrong.

    The photo and video quality clear out to the end of the 1,200mm lens is sharp. The HX300 lost resolution at full zoom. With video, you can engage the Active Stabilization Mode and get 1.41X, or a 1,692mm equivalent in focal-length and there’s no loss of quality. There are several other superzoom brands on sale now, that seem to match the HX400V in some specifications, but their overall performance for all purposes falls behind this one.

    I recommend getting the Sony ECM-XYST1M stereo hotshoe mike, to put on this camera. It picks up distant sounds well and mostly eliminates wind noise using a furnished furry wind sock. Breathing sounds from the operator are not recorded, which is a problem if the built-in mikes are used. The two elements can be swiveled out wide or pointed ahead for varied pickup patterns. I also bought two sets of Wasabi NP-BX1 batteries and chargers here on Amazon. You don’t get an external charger with the camera and having 5 batteries and two chargers gives me plenty of backup power and charging capability. This brand of battery seems to have the best reputation for an after-market source.

    The autofocus for both photos and video is quick and solid. There is no better camera for shooting flying birds or aircraft. The low-light abilities of it are amazing and the unique multiple-exposure modes make it possible to get good photos in very dim light.

    There’s a KiwiFotos lens adaptor tube here on Amazon that is built to fit the HX300. Although it is claimed that the lens is the same size as that of the HX400V, it is not. The HX400V outer lens housing is 1mm larger in diameter and this adaptor will not fit. Perhaps KiwiFotos will build a new one later that matches the HX400V.

    Although this camera is listed here and at other dealers in the USA as the HX400 (B), it is in fact the HX400V (B) they are selling. This model has GPS and the HX400 that is sold in some other countries, does not have GPS.

    Superb features, however can lack in photo quality, May 21, 2014
    MyKeyReviews (Hampshire, UK.) –

    This review is from: Sony HX400V/B 20.4 MP Digital Camera (Electronics)

    ♦ Brief ♦

    The HX400V is new to Sony’s 2014 range of bridge cameras. For the size, it’s extremely lightweight and very comfortable to hold. In addition, I personally found it fairly easy to navigate, both internally and externally.

    This camera boasts about quite a lot of things; large mega-pixel photos, new Bionz-X processor, “premium” 50x optical zoom, Wi-Fi/NFC, GPS, viewfinder, tilt-screen, hotshoe and a whole load of different settings to get the most out of your photos. Sounds mouth-watering, doesn’t it? But is it really all what it perceives?

    ♦ Box Contents & Recommended Extras ♦

    - Box Contents: HX400V Bridge Camera | Battery | USB Cable | AC Adaptor | Power Cable | Shoulder Strap | Instruction Manual.

    - Recommended Extras: SDHC Memory Card* | Spare Battery.

    * There’s no flash memory(well, enough to take 4 photos), so getting one of these are a must! (You can go for any brand you want, however I would recommend a memory card with no less than 8GB memory capacity & of class 10).

    ♦ Ease of Use & Navigation ♦

    I honestly really like the cameras layout, both software and external, I personally found the camera to be very easy to use.

    In the menu, you have everything set out in their appropriate tabs, so once you’ve had a good look around, it’s pretty easy to remember where everything is located.

    One much liked aspect about this camera is its ‘Fn’ (Function) button; this gives you access to 12 settings (11 of which are customisable to your own liking), so changing settings have never been so quick.

    NFC has always been a feature I adore, this allows you to control the camera with your smartphone using the Playmemories mobile app (though does lack in setting adjustments), plus you can also use this to send over photos over to your phone with one tap (providing your phone supports NFC).

    There are also a ton of different modes to choose from such as auto, aperture, shutter, manual, scene, sweep panoramic and much more.

    And if you think that was enough, you can download certain apps from the playmemories camera apps store, some are free and others have a price to pay, normally between £4-£8 per app. These range from time lapse, motion shots, bracketing and more.

    The best way to get these apps onto the camera in my opinion is by connecting the camera directly to you computer via the included cable.

    That all said, there are a couple of things about the camera I didn’t quite get on well with:

    1) Viewfinder: Not user friendly for people who wear glasses!

    2) Battery compartment: My tripod has a mid-sized camera plate, where the memory card is stored in the same compartment, I have to take the camera off if I want to gain access to it.

    So when it comes down to the cameras external and software features, this camera has a lot to be proud of.

    ♦ Photo & Video Quality ♦

    If you’re not the type of person who likes to dig deep into the photos quality when viewed at its actual size, then I don’t think you’d be that disappointed. Most photos taken with this camera look good when viewed on a computer, HDTV, or when posted on social networking sites such as Facebook, but when you really get close to the photo by viewing it at its actual size, you start to see quite a few discrepancies in quality.

    I found that mainly when shooting in cloudy and lower lighting conditions, you start to lose quality in the photos. They start to lack in sharpness, edges can seem jagged and some posterization can be seen when viewing the photo in its actual size. These issues get increasingly noticeable when more zoom is used, and that’s just with optical zoom, not digital.

    The problem by having advanced photo settings such as “Aperture Priority”, “Shutter Priority” & “Manual Exposure” available, is that it will be more enticing for people who want to get the most out of their photos, but those who want to to do just that are more likely to be picky with quality.

    Video quality on the other hand I found to be rather good, but for goodness sake, if you’re planning on using the 50x zoom, do so with a tripod. At the max focal length any slight movement in your positioning will be much noticed in the footage.

    ♦ Final Opinion ♦

    ✔ Pros:
    ✓ 1080p video.
    ✓ Comfortable to hold with great grip.
    ✓ Decent tilt-screen.
    ✓ Easy to use & navigate around.
    ✓ NFC & Wi-Fi Capability…

    Amazing camera for the price, April 16, 2014

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Sony HX400V/B 20.4 MP Digital Camera (Electronics)
    I caught this camera at a lower price when it was available for pre-order only and thought I’d give it a try. My primary reason for wanting a mega-zoom camera is for birding, but I’ve also tried shots indoors and close up flower photography.

    I am not a serious photographer, so my review will not be technically rigorous. I do enjoy my casual photography, especially when I come home with a few “keeper” shots like I’ve been lucky enough to do with this camera.

    I have been extremely pleased with this camera. Even in auto mode the photos have exceeded my expectations, even at the highest range of zoom. The details are staying crisp (water droplets on a loon’s head, the iridescence of feathers) and the focus speed/shutter speed have allowed me to catch a couple photos I would not have thought possible with a camera of this type.

    I’m looking forward to learning more about this camera’s capabilities and becoming more adept with the mega-zoom.
