  • Excerpt: Hello ! decided to post this since I see very little reviews of this camera. I own a variety of cameras and brands, I have no loyalty at all, have been a photographer for 30+ years. I owned a Canon SX40 that I sold , but I wanted an all in one compact camera, friends of mine have the HX300 and have seen great shots. - The camera size and heft is good, some dials feel cheap, the grip is great.

Great Pictures

Dez, Crutchfield

  • Summary: Had a Sony years ago and decided to purchase a newer Canon-never like the quality of the pictures with the Cannon, everything seemed to be backwards like the button for the zoom went just opposite of the way most cameras . Went back to a Sony and I have not been disappointed - the quality of marco photos is awesome and the camera is fairly user friendly. As for the Play Memories Home...it is awful have tired for days to get it to work with no success.
  • Pros: Feel of the camera, user friendly, photos excellent, zoom is great, Wifi is easy to use and works well, love the GPS.
  • Cons: Camera lens cover not attached, NO OUT OF CAMERA BATTERY CHARGER (this was big for me),

Exceptional Point and Shoot Camera

ScubaMan Indy, B&H Photo
2 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I am a casual photographer, own several cameras and camcorders to shoot on land and underwater. Wildlife is my primary focus. The DSC HV400V is simple to use, delivers superb images and video. This compact camera nearly replaces my Canon 7D with a 150-500 zoom lens with a fraction of the weight. I am thrilled with this camera!
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay

Pretty Amazing camera by Sony HX400V

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 June 2014
  • Summary: I got this camera today and have been taking pictures all afternoon, and have gotten two pictures of the 1st quarter moon this evening. (I zoomed in until I had the moon in full screen). You can see the craters clearly. I went with this model over the basic model because the Zeiss lens was better, although the zoom was less. The LCD articulates--you can tilt it, and it's a nice touch. The "engine" (chipset) is better (faster)--same as found on the RX100.

Great Travel Camera

SWITCHBACK, B&H Photo
30 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Most superzooms are small with poor image quality, not so with the Sony. This camera exceeds the others in image quality and produces clear shots from corner to corner. The camera is SLR sized and feels great in your hands. Zoom range is incredible and you always have the right focal length. Sony sensors produce great results and this 20mp sensor looks better than the 12-16 mp of the competition. If you want a vast range of focal lengths, this is your camera.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD

Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-HX400V

JustMe, Crutchfield
25 June 2014
  • Summary: This camera is definitely a great bridge camera. It packs a lot of the futures not found on smaller, cheaper cameras without the "bother" and expense of extra lenses for a DSLR. This camera has excellent image stabilization at full zoom (50x), this camera is virtually as easy to hold stable as my Panasonic ZS1 at full zoom (10x). Another useful feature is the manual focus, which works in picture and video mode.
  • Pros: Long zoom range Excellent image stabilization (OIS) Manual Focus (sort of)
  • Cons: Manual focus not truly manual

Great camera!

  • Excerpt: Bought this for a field camera at work. We need to take photos of large areas from on the ground as well as aerial photos, so this camera is great since it has both panorama and zoom. we haven't tested the built in GPS yet, but we're hoping it will be a great asset. the photos this camera takes are excellent quality and it's pretty quick.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Complicated Controls
