Excerpt: My experience in bridging the gap between a basic point and shoot (works but limited utility—just use your phone for those shots) and a more advanced DSLR or high end mirrorless cameras is fraught with compromise. The HX400V seems to be a good compromise if super zoom is really important to you. This camera and those in its class from Canon and Nikon zoom to ~1200mm. This feature has the ability to bring things up close and personal.
Pros: Easy to Use, Super Zoom, Zeiss Optics
Cons: Average image quality, Slow Data Write Speed
Excerpt: I have been carrying the 'smaller' Sony point and shoot HD camera for a couple years now and have gotten some fantastice shots. I looking forward to a more 'powerful and responsive' camera this trip and already know the 'pics will be good'. Since what I love to do most is 'photography', you can never have too much. I spent many years with SLR cameras and love the ease of use of these 'point and shoot'. You can't go wrong.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Great Zoom
Excerpt: The LED seems to have a short in it when I move it to the perpendicular position. While flush with the camera it works fine but when I move it ... it comes on and off.<br /><br />I am still learning other things about the camera but so far the photos are good.
Excerpt: Over the years, I have owned dozens of cameras, from simple point and shoots to expensive and heavy slr's and dslr's. In consideration of the foregoing, I can unequivocally say that the HX400V is a great multi-use camera. It is light weight, has a great zoom, and takes very sharp pictures from 24mm to 1200mm and 1200mm to 2400mm is good also.
