Sony HX400V/B 20.4 MP Digital Camera with 50x Optical Zoom
This is a great 'bridge' camera – it's much smaller than a DSLR but bigger than a point and shoot and has an incredible 50x optical zoom. We use this for both stills and video (compatible the gun zoom mic for enhanced audio quality) and the batteries are compatible with our Sony RX100 which is very handy. It's the phenomenal zoom capability that we love most about this camera – brilliant for capturing wildlife or any object from a distance, though a tripod will help reduce blur when using the zoom – at the fraction of the price of a zoom lens addition to the a6000.

Closeness is nothing without clarity. Enjoy 50x optical zooming, silky-smooth Full HD video and razor-sharp, 20.4MP pics—perfect for sporting events and all your adventures. Looking to capture the mood of a shot without the harshness of a flash? Low-light environments (think candlelight and campfire) maintain their warmth thanks to the sensitive Exmor R CMOS sensor. Even shoot on the move thanks to Optical SteadyShot that helps minimize blur. Use Easy Mode to simplify the camera’s menu functions, plus add fun or dramatic looks with the built-in Picture Effects.
