Product information
Get closer than ever to those distant subjects and capture the moment in stunning detail with the Sony H400B Bridge Camera.

Exceptional image quality

Shoot your everyday moments in outstanding quality. The Sony H400 boasts a high 20.1 megapixel resolution that's combined with a Super HAD CCD image sensor. The Super HAD sensor technology packs more detail into each frame, capturing the beauty and excitement of every shot. Images are bursting with brilliant detail and natural colour tones - capture great portraits, wildlife shots, holiday moments and everything else in effortless detail.

Mega zoom

A mammoth 63 x optical zoom range opens up even more photo possibilities. You can get up close and personal with subjects and capture special moments with far away wildlife. The powerful magnification means you can achieve excellent focus depth on close-ups.

With optical SteadyShot image stabilisation you can grab the sharpest stills on every occasion. SteadyShot detects the camera movement and compensates to ensure crystal-clear sharpness, even during zooming or in low light.

Bridge photography

This powerful compact bridge camera has the look and feel of an SLR camera. The ergonomic grip ensures comfort and control when taking photos. The stylish body features smooth contours and sharp edges while the electronic viewfinder provides outstanding viewing when composing a shot, even in bright sunlight.

Powering the Sony H400 is a large-capacity 'X-type' lithium-ion battery that gives you longer shooting sessions.

HD video

You can also use the DSC H400 Camera to shoot HD movies. Your videos will be smooth and steady thanks to the high frame rate and Optical SteadyShot Active mode, which provides clear video even if you're walking or zooming in.

Camera memory

It is important to have the right memory card for your camera. The memory card will determine how fast an image is saved and how fast an image is uploaded.

If you're shooting high definition videos along with high resolution images then it's best to invest in a high performance memory card. A high performance memory card will get the best out of your photography, ensuring the best continuous shooting speed and high quality data capture.

The Sony H400B Bridge Camera puts image quality, powerful zooming and much more in a easy-grip body.
