I spent a few days with the HX400, my conclusions are as follows
The HX400 is quite a nice superzoom camera, comfy in the hands and with good handling.
Unfortunately though, whilst the image quality is quite good at lower ISO levels, it takes a significant dive in less than ideal conditions. This reivew is to help you decide if the camera suits your needs (I raise some good and bad points that might not matter to you)

Sadly you are stuck with Sony's less than great jpeg engine, and it can't be overlooked that Sony have decided to deny users the chance to use raw processing (in 2014 this is a serious omission and all their rivals now offer this, and have done for some time)

The HX400 isn't a bad camera by any means, but the price is fairly steep and it falls short on the image quality front

My good and bad points:

+ Build is quite decent feels comfy in the hand with sensible and easy to learn controls
+ Useful 50x zoom (24-1200mm equivalent) starts at f2.8 dropping to f6.3 (ok speed wise for the range) it's quite good sharpness wise, not tack sharp at 24mm on the edges, but quite consistent across the range..it's still quite good at 1200mm too
+ Excellent 921k 3" rear LCD that is clear and sharp, not fully articulated (pull it out for overhead or low angle shooting) nice overall though
+ Mostly well featured, usual scene modes, manual mode, lots of filters, good macro ability, sweep panoramic mode: you can set the camera to remember your settings via 2 custom positions on the main mode dial.
+ Built in wifi, NFC and GPS, GPS locked on quite quickly too
+ EVF is quite good, clear and with a decent refresh rate, has eye sensor too.

* Photography skills: Enthusiastic amateur, occasional freelance photo/video journalist, travel brochure photography...
* Review based on more than 2 months of regular use.

Since my husband bought his Canon D-SLR I've been undecided which direction to take with my next camera - a D-SLR has the benefit of interchangeable lenses but at the expense of bulk and weight for carrying around, to say nothing of the cost. Although the photo quality can be higher, the bulk puts me off and I could foresee it being left behind. Instead, this Sony DSCHX400V bridges the gap between the two - 50x optical zoom (equating to 24mm-1200mm lens) plus the ability to use filters (55mm thread diameter) for creative effects.

It's bulkier than I expected but also a lot lighter in weight than anticipated. Build quality feels good despite it being wholly plastic and it's comfortable and easy to hold even with hot sweaty hands thanks to a rubberised-grip.

For the beginner there is the simple 'intelligent auto' point-and-shoot mode and no need to venture away from this. This selects the optimum exposure settings and in all of my tests on landscape, macro and people shots, it was accurate every time.

But, unlike beginner point and shoot models, this also offers the more experienced photographer some greater control with manual options. It doesn't offer quite the same flexibility and control as a D-SLR but it's not far off and a world apart from a fully-automatic point and shoot. For shooting waterfalls, I was able to switch to shutter-priority mode, select a slow shutter speed, reduce it further by adding a neutral density filter to gain that (near) perfect shot.
