Never knowingly undersold

Product information

With Sony’s HX400, you’ll enjoy the simplicity of a fixed lens and the control of DSLR handling. A powerful optical zoom extends up to 50x for detailed telephoto and macro shooting, while onboard image stabilisation helps keep everything crisp. Autofocus also makes light work of action shot, keeping your subject at the centre of attention, and ensuring sharper stills. When a single picture isn’t enough, there’s Full HD 1080p video capture with all the benefits of active stabilisation to compensate for camera roll and hand movement.

50x zoom
Forget changing lenses while you’re in the wild or on the beach: every photo opportunity’s covered with the powerful 50x optical zoom lens. Grab expansive, wide-angle landscapes – or zoom in for telephoto close-ups of animals and birds, while your camera keeps it all steady.

20.4 megapixels
More detail means better pictures and Full HD video. Capture moments that really stand out from the crowd with a 20.4-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor that cuts out picture noise for clear, sharp results, even when the lights are low.

Auto settings
Wondering which settings are best? Let your camera do all the work. From close-ups to twilight portraits, your camera adjusts everything automatically so you easily get the results you want, no fuss. It even detects if your subject's moving, cutting motion blur in any scene.

Wi-Fi & NFC
There’s only one thing better than taking a great photo, and that’s sharing it. With Wi-Fi and NFC built-in you can share your best shots in a second. And with the smartphone remote app you’ll always be in control.

GPS
The HX400’s GPS let syou tag you pictures as you take them so you can relive your adventures step by step back home.

Electronic viewfinder
A 201-dot resolution electronic viewfinder gives you a clear, real-time preview with 100% frame coverage – ideal for framing, focusing, and reviewing shots. A built-in eye-sensor automatically switches you between the LCD display and the viewfinder.
