The DSC-H400 has a 63x(!) zoom. But it also has some limitations you'll have to work around.

63x optical zoom ; Solid and weighty build ; Standard manual features alongside fully automatic operation

Video resolution limited to a maximum 1280x720 pixels ; Soft image quality

So whilst the H400 isn’t the best bridge camera we have ever comes across, it’s the best for this price at least.

Sony DSC-H400

 

Sony has announced the Cyber-shot DSC-H400, a high zoom point and shoot digital camera. While the H400 is (to some people) limited by its 20.1-megapixel CCD image sensor to 720p HD Video Recording, it does feature an astounding 63x optical zoom lens...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H400 Review

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H400 is an affordable super-zoom camera, offering a 63x, 24.5-1550mm zoom lens, 20.1 megapixel Super HAD CCD sensor, 720p HD video recording with stereo sound, and Sweep Panoramas. Other key features of the Sony H400 include a 3...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H400 is a rather unexciting super-zoom camera with one stand-out feature, at least in marketing terms - its mammoth 63x, 24.5-1550mm lens. Whilst this sounds incredible on paper and is sure to gain the DSC-H400 more attention...

Sony H400 Review

 

Are you consumed by your need for zoom? If so, the Sony H400 may put a skip in your step. This SLR-styled, fixed-lens camera offers more zoom than you could shake a tree full of sticks at, ensuring you'll have a tighter-cropped photo of your kids at...

Available from March 2014, the Sony H400 ships only in a black-bodied version for about US$320.

Sony Cyber-shot H400

 

The Sony Cyber-shot H400 is a bridge super-zoom with a massive 63.3x optical range. Launched in February 2014 alongside the 35x H300, these models join the H200 released at the beginning of the year to form a budget range below the more...

Massive 63.3x zoom lens

Poor electronic viewfinder quality ; CCD streaking artifacts on movies ; No Photo Creativity modes ; No customisation options ; No 1080p full HD video ; Limited Picture Effects ; No Wifi

Anyone looking for an inexpensive camera with an extraordinarily long zoom range might be very pleased with the H400. Few other cameras even come close to its 63.3x reach and those that do cost a lot more. But they also offer many other things besides...

Excellent option for value/quality

 

Only have started to familiarise myself with the DSC-H400, but seems to fit the bill an de meeting my expectations. Bought as replacement of my old Fuji FinePix S5600 (which feels tiny in hands now). And as an alternative to my Nikon 3100 + 18-55mm +...
