Measures the sensitivity of the image sensor. The lower the number the less sensitive your camera is to light. HD refers to cameras with a resolution of 720p (1280x720px) or 1080p (1920x1080px). The numbers 720 and 1080 refer to the horizontal lines of vertical resolution. 4K is considered ultra-high-definition and has a resolution of 3840x2160px. The higher the megapixel number, the more detail the camera can capture. Optical zoom allows you to zoom in (or out) on a subject. This will enable you to get a closer view of the subject. Optical zoom changes the magnification of images with the actual optical glass of the lens. Optical zoom allows for better photo quality than digital zoom. Memory card type used by camera. LCD screens range from 1.5-inches to 3.7-inches diagonally. A variety of size designations indicating the physical dimensions of a digital camera sensor.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400 Digital Camera is a high-zoom camera that offers ease of use akin to a point-and-shot, but with the design and control of a DSLR. It features a 20.4MP 1/2.3 inches Exmor R CMOS sensor and a BIONZ X Image Processor for notable low light performance, as well as a 50x optical zoom Carl Zeiss Vario Sonnar T lens with a 100x Clear Image Zoom. Get amazingly close with 50x optical zoom plus 100x Clear Image zoom ZEISS lens. Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in fuzzy images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos.

Shoot incredibly smooth video and still images thanks to the new BIONZ X processor and Optical SteadyShot with Intelligent Active mode. When the processor and image stabilization technology work together they deliver sharp, blur-free photos and footage in otherwise unsteady situations, like shooting video while walking or zoomed in.

With a 20.4-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, capture high-resolution images that take full advantage of the camera's high-quality ZEISS lens. More pixels means you can enlarge zoom in and crop your photos without losing detail. Advanced BIONZ X image processor technology reduces noise and graininess for incredibly crisp, clear images even in challenging low-light conditions, while sensor and processor working together enable 10fps, Anti Motion Blur, Hand-held Twilight and 1080p movie modes.

Record crystal-clear movies at the highest resolution available with Full HD 1080/60p/24p video capture (records in 29-minute segments). Stunning, fast-motion video with reduced distortion looks great when played back on your HDTV. When shooting quick-moving subjects,think kids playing soccer or a seagull in flight, it can sometimes be difficult to maintain a crisp focus. Lock-On AF uses multiple points with subject recognition to keep your shot sharp, even in motion.

Now you can wirelessly share your photos and videos through simplified Wi-Fi/NFC (Near Field Communication) control. Even better, you can easily share media between your camera and a compatible Android device through convenient and quick NFC with just one touch. Simply tap devices together to establish a link; no complicated setup is required.

A 3.0 inches Xtra Fine 921k-dot tilting LCD monitor as well as an electronic eye-level viewfinder allows you to view and compose high-quality images. Capture full HD 1080p AVCHD video at 60p and 24p and use the optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization to compensate for camera shake in order to provide clearer images. This is especially useful in low light and when using the longer focal lengths. For sports photography and during motion-filled photo capturing moments, the HX400 features 10 frames per second continuous shooting at the full 20.4MP resolution, which ensures sharp, clear images that are less likely to be missed.

  • 50x Optical Zoom Zeiss Lens & 100x Clear Image Zoom: A Carl Zeiss lens with 50x optical zoom capability offers a considerable expanse of reach from wide-angle to super-telephoto. This zoom range can effectively be doubled, too, using the 100x Clear Image Zoom that employs an intelligent interpolation algorithm to increase zoom magnification with minimal image quality loss.

It allows for magnifications of 8.1 xs and 16.2 xs and becomes useful for viewing and composing shots in extreme sunlight.
  • Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization with Intelligent Active Mode: Optical SteadyShot image stabilization offers compensation to reduce the blurring effects of camera movement when shooting at slower shutter speeds.

Sony's Intelligent Active Mode image stabilization combines electronic and optical stabilization for less blurring while shooting videos when moving.
  • Full 1080p AVCHD Video Capture: You can capture full 1080p AVCHD videos with stereo sound at 60p, and 24p for a film look.

  • Fast 10fps Continuous Burst Shooting & Lock-On AF: Ideal for sports photography, the HX400 can shoot up to 10 frames per second in full 20.4MP resolution, and has Lock-On AF, which provides the ability to focus on multiple points with subject recognition to keep your subject in sharp focus even when in motion.
  • Intelligent Sweep Panorama 360: Intelligent Sweep Panorama mode takes Sony's Sweep Panorama function to the next level with the addition of motion compensation.
