The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX400V Digital Camera is a high-zoom camera offering ease of use akin to a point-and-shot, but with design and control of a DSLR. Featuring a 20.4MP 1/2.3" Exmor R CMOS sensor and a BIONZ X Image Processor for notable low light performance, and 50x optical zoom Carl Zeiss Vario Sonnar T lens with a 100x Clear Image Zoom. 4.3-215mm focal length with a 35mm equivalent of 24-1200mm allows the lens significant wide angle and considerable telephoto shooting abilities. It features a wide 2.8 aperture, especially useful in low light allowing for brighter images.
A 3" Xtra Fine 921k-dot tilting LCD monitor and electronic eye-level viewfinder enable you to view and compose high-quality images. Capture full HD 1080p AVCHD video at 60p and 24p and use the Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization compensating for camera shake to provide clearer images. Especially useful in low light and when using the longer focal lengths. For sports photography and during motion-filled photo capturing moments, the HX400V features 10 frames per second continuous shooting at the full 20.4MP resolution, ensuring clear, sharp images that are less likely to be missed.
To capture a wide area all in one photo, Intelligent Sweep Panorama utilizes motion compensation while shooting panoramas to reduce the blur created by moving figures in the foreground. Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to instantly share what you have created with your family and friends, for easy uploading after a long day of shooting.
