The Sony CyberShot DSC-HX400V is the successor to the HX300. The large compact camera has no less than 50x optical zoom. You simply set the camera manually via the menus and the lens control ring. In the event of disturbing sunlight, tilt the LCD screen or use the integrated electronic viewfinder. Alternatively, you can install an app on your smartphone and use your phone as a remote control for the camera. The integrated GPS functionality is useful, as it lets you know exactly where you shot that one beautiful photo.

  • Pros:
    Great zoom range.
  • Pros:
  • Pros:
    High-quality photos.
  • Pros:
    Focusing manually works well.
  • Con:
    The screen can tilt 90 degrees.
  • Con:
    Camera keeps asking to open the flash. This notification covers the screen.

Is as easy to hold as an SLR camera. The large zoom range is easy to use, thanks to the stabilization. The camera takes good pictures under almost all circumstance. It's a shame you can't use more or less light in the intelligent mode. You have to use the P-setting for that. You can't transfer videos via WiFi.
