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.

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.

The not technical version, amazing zoom, but yes it needs steadying as you go out to the max, i enjoy taking photos of animals and landscapes..i have a shaky hand and the panoramic moving capture is great, previous camera had to join dots . I was taking a shot of a buzzard in flight a way off, and on the photo you can see its colour and claws , amazing.it is a large camera and relatively heavy , i have not one regret and do genuinely love the camera. Not a technical review but i hope useful.

Okay first thing out of the box this camera is very stylish much more expensive looking that it actually is, it has the right shape the right lines the right angles and above all the right finish, on looks alone you will never be disappointed. I have no idea how some users found this camera heavy or bulky I found it to be perfectly balanced with the correct size to weight ratio. The camera was very easy to set up, it has like most bridge cameras now been designed to be virtually dummy proof.

The onboard lithium battery is a nice change from carrying a pocket full of shell cartridges in the form of AA batteries, though the back up batteries do at least provide comfort like the extra fuel tank on a motorbike, it's there if you need it. Anyway on to that super-zoom the reason why you stuck your hand in your pocket in the first place, go on guys you can admit it we're all X-massive junkies we all want to see the great wall of China from the comfort of a sofa. This Sony with a 63x is very smooth running I was very impressed with its motorised mechanics, not so impressed with its results!

Okay first off its the old mars-bar trick where they dress it up in a fluffed out wrapper while reducing the size of the bar inside rather than the old tight around wrapper which would have been spotted by most. I'm on a diet and the talk of chocolate is killing me so enough, you know what I mean. The first 14.5x is used getting you out of the negative focus to bring a semblance of size to your LCD image whereas it is approximately 9.5x on other bridge cameras, and the jump from 46x to 63x is really not that appreciable.
