        Does this camera have a viewfinder? You know, where you put your eye right up to the camera to view image?

          Answer

          Yes and it has a sensor that switches from lcd to viewfinder when you put your eye up to the viewfinder. No need of a button to push. Viewfinder and lcd are close to 1 millon dots giving you a beautiful way to frame your shot

            Answer

            Hi SPNCamera, Yes. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V 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" 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. A 4.3-215mm focal length with a 35mm equivalent of 24-1200mm allows this lens significant wide-angle and considerable telephoto shooting abilities. It also features a wide 2.8 aperture, which is especially useful in low-light as it allows for brighter images. -Anthony

            FLASH   (1 Answer)

            I own the DSC-HX 200. It has it's own flash, but it only operates when capturing images, but not viedeo recording. Am I correct?. I see that the HX-400 has a hot-shoe for optional flash. Is this camera equipped with an optional built-in flash as the HX-200? Also what is the recommended optionl flash model for the HX-400? I already have the NP-BX1 Rechargeable lithium battery pack information. But, what is the recommended model charger for the HX-400?

              Hi Jose, yes, the camera also has a built in flash. And you can also use external flash units which are compatible to the Multi Interface shoe such as the HVLF60M, As for the optional battery charger, you can use the BCTRX travel charger. Thanks_Mitch
