Funny that it performs so badly. On paper you would think it would outperform something like the Fujifilm S11000 or something -

All the specs are just for marketing though! Bah.

Still using a CCD in 2014! It needs a BSI CMOS sensor with a brighter lens. No wonder it’s noisy.

Shouldn’t be on the market, after seeing what the pictures look like I’m glad I have a Canon. Pictures like make you think twice about any Sony cameras

I honestly think that you shouldn’t give equal weight to the different scoring categories, when calculating your average scores. It’s not all about the imaqe quality, of course, but surely the images are what matters most in the end? A camera that hardly can take a decent picture shouldn’t be awarded with an ‘above average’ final score, regardless of build quality, features or ease-of-use.

Sony wants to be on the top of megazooms. It doesn’t matter quality, the most important thing is number x63 he he…
What a waste of money.

I don’t understand Sony’s thinking behind the release of this camera.Is it worth it to endanger the brand name just to catch a few kids and amateurs who are going to be impressed by the 63X..Shame on you Sony for this camera….

At the start of this review it is stated that this H400 Sony bridge camera has a Carl Zeiss lens. It DOESN’T. If it was a CZ lens it would say so on the lens and it doesn’t, it says ‘Sony Lens’. This is why this camera is a lot cheaper than the Sony X50 (which has a lower zoom but a CZ lens). How appalling that someone paid to write professional camera reviews hasn’t even noticed this model does not have a CZ lens. It makes his entire review unworthy of being posted, let alone read.

I recently bought this camera, and by reading all of this comments I see that before choosing a camera u need to decide on what you are going to use it. I tried to take pictures very close to things but it does not work very well. I think this camera was made to take distant and wide pictures. Also you have to know when exactly push the shutter, its hard to focus: but it works very good for me.
