Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V
3 March 2015
Summary: Aunque navegar por el infinito menú puede ser bastante engorroso y en un primer momento los botones y diales parecían estar mal colocados, a medida que te acostumbras a usar la Sony Cyber-shot HX400V te vas dando cuenta de su pensado diseño ergonómico y de lo rápido que puedes trabajar una vez conoces la posición de cada uno de sus botones y diales. Es muy ligera, por lo tanto, manejable y cómoda .
Pros: Peso, Zoom óptico, Calidad de imagen
Cons: Pantalla LCD incómoda, Cuesta acostumbrarse a los botones y diales, Menú infinito y poco intuitivo
Summary: The Sony DSC-HX400V digital camera is an excellent ” bridge “, characterized by a breathtaking body of the machine and excellent features and functionality, including the GPS module, Wi-Fi, NFC module, the manual controls Complete with a lot of support for the RAW format, the electronic viewfinder, the LCD vari-angle high resolution, excellent zoom, Full HD movies and more. Really, a great product.
Pros: Optical zoom up to 50x with the Intelligent Zoom; Manual controls; GPS; Quality sensor; Display resolution; Swiveling display; Full HD video footage; Wi-Fi connectivity; NFC module; MicroHDMI port; Stabilizer; Electronic viewfinder.
Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot HX400V is the updated version of 2013's HX300. Externally, it's a very similar model and sports the same 50x optical zoom with an equivalent 24-1200mm range and a bright f2.8-6.3 aperture. It also retains the older model's 201k dot EVF and 921k dot 3 inch LCD screen - though now there's a sensor to automatically switch from one to the other.
Pros: 50x optical zoom., Excellent stabilisation., Built-in GPS and Wifi with NFC., 1080p50/60 HD video with PASM., Hot shoe / Accessory port.
Cons: Low resolution electronic viewfinder., Lacks a touch screen., No High speed movie modes., No RAW mode.
Conclusion: The FZ200's more modest 12-megapixel resolution keeps its noise levels lower, and its constant f/2.8 aperture means it captures significantly more light in telephoto shots. The HX400V's maximum (equivalent) focal length is twice as long at 1200mm, but we'd much rather have the FZ200's cleaner images at 600mm. The Panasonic FZ200 lacks Wi-Fi but offers faster performance and a superior EVF to the HX400V, and it's still our favourite bridge camera at this price.
Summary: In good light, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400 produces images that are comparable to a mid-range compact camera but with the advantage of a super zoom. This zoom range is extensive enough for the majority of situations, and I found it was rare that I needed to push the zoom above 1000mm. The optical stabilisation does a very good job of minimising camera shake.
For those who are sticklers for image quality, this camera is not ideal.
Summary: Sony's bridge camera gets an overhaul and it's almost perfect
Pros: Large zoom range, Great processor, Good EVF, There are a whole lot of things to like about the HX400V. But top of the list has to be the 50x optical zoom lens, which takes the crown as its key selling feature. It's a satisfyingly large lens, and the performance at either end of the optical zoom is great, too, making it a fine, flexible choice for travelling and holidaying photographers.
Cons: No touchscreen, Can't shoot in raw, It's a big shame that you can't shoot in raw format. For a camera with this level of advanced control, it seems pretty remiss of Sony not to include it, especially at this price point.
Excerpt: Everyone loves a superzoom. Sony has updated its HX line with the beefed-up Cyber-shot HX400V model to inject a dash of speed into proceedings. The HX400V is, for the most part, a mirror image of the earlier HX300V camera from last year. The key difference: it comes equipped with the new Bionz X processor. Does this matter to you? Well, yes and no.
Summary: Em resumo, a Sony DSC-HX400V é, de facto, uma boa opção para quem procura uma câmara com um zoom generoso para registar vida selvagem e GPS para usar em viagem. O NFC e o Wi-Fi adicionam conveniência ao permitir o seu controlo remoto através de um smartphone ou tablet, enquanto a assistência à focagem manual poderá revelar-se útil durante a gravação de vídeo.
Pros: Zoom ótico de 50x, GPS, NFC e Wi-Fi, Opções de assistência à focagem manual
Cons: Não suporta o formato RAW, Ruído evidente mesmo em baixos valores de ISO, Ausência de ligações standard para microfones ou auscultadores externos, Carregamento da bateria apenas na câmara
