Pros: Zoom 50x equal to 1200 mm. , ZEISS optics, reduced weight and compactness; beautiful colors for the concentrated technology in a relatively small machine body. Great definition of images and colors photographing with flash in dark rooms.

Cons: I have owned it for a few months; with little light does what you can but you can't expect anything from a zoom that pulls at 1200 mm, 50x, and for 359 euros, with a compact machine body of 6 ects in all

Opinion: Exceptional optics, moreover, the ZEISS brand speaks for itself. I bought it to photograph animals in the mountains so as not to carry big weights. With the DSLR and the 500 mm that for the apsc became an 800 mm after three hours of climbing I went back that I was hunchback. Obviously from a compact of six ects that pulls to 1200 mm paid new 359 euros you can not expect the world. It's a great superzoom compact! I photographed an eagle pulling it to 50 x when the sun illuminated its wings and the focus surprised me for the speed, also great the photo from so far away with the raptor in flight. I also tried from adistance, without support, with a warning sign and the reading of the writing remained very clear. Good rendering of colors and images with flash photographing in dark rooms.

Pros: A huge camera, extremely functional and able to deal with any situation, getting into difficulty, due to the modest size of the sensor, in low light conditions. Extraordinary optics, powerful software - essentially the same as the Alfa 7.

Cons: Virtually nothing, except a slowdown in autofocus and lower image quality in poor light conditions.

Opinion: I've been using it for two years, most recently alongside a Sony Alfa 7, and, I have to say, it never disappointed me. The Zeiss optic of great quality gives amazing photographs, also suitable to be printed in formats not too large, provided made in good light condition: on the other hand you can not expect the 1/2.3" sensor to work wonders. Great and practical software, which allows you to finely adjust the camera: basically the same as the FullFrame older sisters. Fast and precise - under normal light conditions - focus. Ergonomic and solid machine body and easy grip. Despite the small size of the sensor, the goodness of the lens means that no annoying edge distortions or excessive vignettes are found. Even at the maximum focal length (equivalent to 1200 mm), it maintains a more than good image quality. Also great for making macrophotographs. Having a good brightness, however, guarantees a good bokeh, with delicate grain. He does pretty well for making videos, too. The battery allows you to take over 300 shots. Rather robust, it did not fail at the 45th of the Judas Desert in July or the -27th of the Fusine Lakes in January. In relation to the very favorable value for money, it is a great investment! An update: after 3 years and a week of happy use, the machine, suddenly, without warning and without reason (a bang, a fall) began - January 2019 - to communicate a code of malfunction, corresponding to the break of the indispensable - and great! Stabilizer. The bad news is that the cost of replacing the stabilizer and related work to be carried out at an official Sony center, coincides with the amount with which I purchased, new, the camera. According to some thematic blogs and some websites, the problem is widespread. Ergo, despite using it with great satisfaction, I switched to another brand (I bought an APS-C Canon EOS D200 which I will combine in autumn 2019 a superzoom SIGMA 150-600 mm model C, loving very much shoot with long focals). In fact, I do not find it tolerable that there is the exitial, but widespread habit of planned obsolescence, especially in cameras and especially in Sony products.

Pros: Weight, focal length, macro.

Cons: He deserved a better sensor, poses longer max 30 ", no raw

Opinion: I switched from the compact Canon SX700 to this and it was a nice change. It is well-grasped and light to carry on the shoulder or fixed to the backpack sling. Very comfortable the swivel screen and the proximity sensor placed near the eyepiece that turns off the screen automatically when you look in the eyepiece. Very well the automatic reading of the scene when shooting in full automatic (very difficult that something wrong), valid also manual options and a welcome as well as the image stabilizer. Bracketing is very easy to set up. The battery lasts 3-400 shots. Appreciate the fact that you can mount the hood and various filters. From my point of view, after almost 2 years of use, is that it is a pity that it has a small sensor, that does not even shoot in raw and that the longer pose is only 30 ".

Pros: Versatility, weight, focal length, great macro, fantastic HDR, ability to add standard accessories (filters, lampshade...)

Cons: Autofocus not very fast, image quality with little light

Opinion: I went from a Canon bridge to this one, bought used for 250 euros. Definitely not repentant. In fairness, I expected more from the Zeiss lenses: with not great light enlarged to 100% always give the impression of grainy. Anyway a nice all-in-one machine. Makes you forget the reflex at home! Given the price paid, there's really no complaining! I have to update: suddenly the machine, which worked well for about 3 years, purchased used, began to communicate the infamous e:62.10, with its malfunction of the stabilizer especially on the long focal... Nothing happened that could have caused the accident: it did not fall on me, it did not take too cold or too hot... Since it's the second Sony that plants me for no apparent reason. I replaced it with a Panasonic... and let's hope for good!

Pros: I REQUIRE A HELP

Cons: MICROPHONE

Opinion: Hi, I've bought the sony 400V for a few months. I'm trying to use it to learn as much as possible. But among my main needs is the need for an external microphone. Can you tell me how can I do it? I know there is not the right input but i would like to know if it is possible to connect a microphone via wifi or there is a way that at this time escapes me. Thank you
