Sony has produced another solid camera in the HX400V, with some excellent technologies working to make sure it produces excellent images. There are a lot of interesting functions that make it even more appealing, including the 50x optical zoom, built-in Wi-Fi and creative functions. It's a shame that Sony has neglected to include raw format shooting, otherwise this would perhaps have been almost the perfect bridge camera. quote

The Sony HX400V is a first-rate super-zoom that improves on its predecessor in numerous ways. The headline improvements - a new sensor and powerful processor are welcome, but it's the smaller incremental changes that impressed me more.

In summary the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V is once again a solid, but not class-leading, superzoom camera that suffers a little from being priced too high and not offering quite enough features to satisfy the more demanding prosumer user.

Overall Sony's not exactly pushed out a revolutionary upgrade to the HX-series, but the Cyber-shot HX400V does build on the positives of the earlier models in the series without taking any steps backwards ... it's a decent bit of kit with some great innovations such as that lens ring.

The HX400V, for its part, looks virtually identical to the earlier HX300, and bears more than a passing resemblance to the recent A3000 mirrorless model and A58 SLT. Up front, the softly textured grip has been carefully contoured to fit your right hand.

As you'd expect, Sony has included Optical SteadyShot image stabilization in the HX400V, and it features a new Intelligent Active mode that's said to stabilize movies even better than the Active mode of past models.

While it's true that the bridge camera market remains buoyant, most of the other manufacturers haven't released anything particularly exciting in some time. Sony, on the other hand, continues to innovate and here in the HX400V its using some of its best technology to reach out to a wider audience.
