SLR-style design with stunning 63x optical zoom

The sophisticated H400 boasts SLR looks, a high-resolution 20.1 megapixel sensor an incredibly powerful 63x optical zoom lens to help you capture fine details at a distance. The Optical SteadyShot corrects camera shake, even when walking or zooming. Recording functions and a large-capacity lithium-ion battery help make sure you don't miss those special moments, whether you're travelling or shooting everyday situations.

Get closer than ever with a 63x optical zoom

One lens - so many picture possibilities. Featuring a superb 63x optical zoom, the DSC-H400 offers the most powerful magnification of any Cyber-shot model. Grab expansive, wide-angle landscapes - or zoom in for super-telephoto close-ups of your friends or distant objects.

Camera movement stabilisation

Get the sharpest stills and movies, in every situation. Optical SteadyShot detects even the slightest movements and swiftly compensates to maintain a crystal-clear resolution - even when you zoom in close or take snaps in low-light conditions.

Effortlessly capture detail with a 20.1 megapixel sensor

It's all in the detail. A high-resolution 20.1 megapixel image sensor effortlessly captures the beauty and excitement of any scene. Super HAD technology tightly packs millions of pixels in the image sensor to achieve vivid, high-resolution, extremely detailed image reproduction. From family portraits to nights out and holiday snaps, built-in autofocus makes it easy to lock on to your subject for sharp, realistic results - something your smartphone just can't match.

Shoot for longer and take every opportunity

A compact, large-capacity 'X-type' lithium-ion battery means you can take more pictures for longer. No more drained batteries or passing up photo opportunities when you're out and about or on holiday.

All the feel and comfort of an SLR

Say hello to a powerful bridge that feels like an SLR. The ergonomic grip makes photography a joy and the camera easy to operate, while the body itself stylishly combines smooth contours and sharp edges. The electronic viewfinder minimises outdoor reflections so you can still take your images clearly in bright sunlight.

OK, straight out of the box and into action within the last couple of hours. Firstly, if you have used a similar bridge camera before then you will feel right at home with this one. It was easy to set up, the first time switched on it asked for language settings, date & time, image quality etc, just a few easy menus and then you are good to go. Battery and card compartments are easily located at the bottom the camera. The camera feels right for my hands, very comfortable and not overly heavy. The rest of the menus are easy to navigate and quite clear, it's not long before you find what you want and can change it, like the annoying click sound whenever I pressed anything on it at first!

The mode dial has settings so that you can manually control aperture and shutter speed as normal but there is an intelligent camera setting which I used to start with. The intelligent setting was very good in a few different conditions and the manual settings were easy enough to control.

There are 2 things that are most impressive about this camera and I guess they are the main reasons for buying it. The first is image quality, with 20 M/pixels on hand it took good, vibrant photos with lots of detail. The second is the staggering zoom lens. I was taking close up's of herons at one point, which are notoriously shy and getting some very pleasing close-ups given that I could barely see them with my own eyes! When zooming to maximum the lens does take a few seconds to catch up and home in as others have noted, but once it is at the correct magnification you can take shot after shot, even moving it a bit between shots and it copes fine.

not had it long but the zoom of this camera on a tripod is amazing i got some detailed shots of the moon i use as wallpaper on my pc desktop (without a telescope) and for £152 you couldn't buy a lens for a slr that could get anywhere near, for that price.i like value for money and photography is one of my hobbies ,its nice to combine the two, i would recommend this camera.

I have a number of SLR camera's plus a great Olympus Bridge, which "She who must be Obeyed", has now grabbed. So I was looking for a camera to replace it, plus I'm becoming more and more reluctant to carry around a bag of lenses and other stuff. I looked at a lot of bridge cameras with a good zoom facility in the £250 or less price range. I eventually settled on the Sony DSCH400 as it had a good spec, good reviews and the price on Amazon was the best I could find.

The camera has a solid build feel and although it has a good selection of menu options it not an Encyclopaedia Britannica, like some. The Intelligent (Easy) mode lets the camera choose the best settings for you and does a reasonably good job. It obviously also lets you choose your own setting if you are a more experience photographer with Manual, Aperture, Shutter and Program modes. The Sweep Panorama mode works well but does need a little experimenting at first (nothing unusual there). It has a 720p Movie mode which works well, but shame its not full HD, nevertheless it produces good sharp video and mono audio.

The 3" LCD panel is clear, but unfortunately does not cope well with strong sunlight. The simple remedy is to switch to the view finder, but if you like taking shots using the LCD panel you may find this a pain.

The disappointing bits, hence 4 stars:

Mine came with the Zoom set to Smart mode, but when I tried to zoom any thing approaching 25 times magnification it resulted in an error message saying "Power off and on Camera". I was very close to sending it back at this point. I also noticed that the lens, when zooming, was very grouchy.

After rigorously studying many, many reviews (good and bad!) I decided to take a chance and buy a Sony H400 (mainly because I already own a Sony HX1). I had owned a Sony HX200v but sold that as I wasn't too happy with the picture quality. (Also, it had just too many features which I didn't need). Anyway, I bought the Sony H400 from Argos for £169.00. (Would have bought one from Amazon, but I had nearly £100 in Argos vouchers). I've had the camera for a week now, and contrary to all the negative reviews I'd read (poor focussing, slow burst rate, poor viewfinder, no manual focussing and no Wi-Fi), I must say that I am genuinely impressed with the Sony H400! I've found the picture quality very good - even at 63x zoom (especially when set on 16:9 x 2M forma). I use the "smart" zoom setting which limits the zooming to an optical zoom, so you don't lose picture quality. Zoom mechanism is quiet, but it is quite slow (but then again you are zooming to 63X !!). I've found the auto focussing to be good in average daylight. It takes 1 to 2 seconds to focus on a bird in a tree. IN poor light, it does hunt around a bit - but I simply focus on a solid nearby object, keep my finger half pressed on shutter, go back to what I'm shooting then fully press the shutter - works every time! I've found that if you use the viewfinder and keep camera steady on your cheek, you can take good sharp pics at 63x zoom. Viewfinder is adequate. It displays the camera settings and the view you are looking at clear enough, but you have to place your eye dead square on to it to get the best out of it. If your eye is on a slight angle, you can get a blurry edge to the viewfinder. camera feels very nice to hold. Button layout is great. Easy to reach. No "button clutter." Menu is dead simple to navigate and use.Read more ›
