This is my 3rd Sony P&S camera and by far the best.. I have owned SLR but wanted the versatility of the 50X zoom, and the CMOS chip. I just took pictures of my grandson 's graduation shooting from the stands about a hundred feet away for a close-up of his face and the image was great but what blew my mind was it picked up a single wild blond hair of the girl next to him. Amazing detail, excellent color, great viewfinder - I really like the camera. I shot a recent baseball game in which he pitched using the 11 frames per second and froze his pitch halfway between him and the batter. I also find the 11 F/S great for street photography with people for it allows you to catch some very interesting facial expressions. I belong to a camera club with some members using very expensive SLRs and lens. I have found I can compete with them because of the HX400V's versatility. Don't have to change lens to catch a changing scene so I have gotten shots others missed on field trips. Bugs some that my $450 camera competes with their $5-10K rigs. My first digital camera was a Minolta which Sony bought and has continually increased the quality and cutting edge features. I've found Nikon and Canon users are rally amazed at Sony's quality products. You can download the camera guide book from Sony's site to print out a larger easier to read instruction manual. Read the manual and you will be delighted with all this camera can do. I consistently print 11x17 inch inkjet images of my selected pictures that are very sharp and colorful with great quality and win club awards. So this camera is a real deal for the money.
Needed a compact mirrorless digital camera for an upcoming European vacation and after researching several top selling cameras (Fujifilm/Canon etc) it seemed that the Sony Alfa line came in on top! The price I found here on Overstock for the a6000 was below competition websites by around ***. then found this increadable bundle here with a 64gb memory card / 2 battery charger/ filters etc etc etc!!! (see all listed in item description above!) Unboxing and set-up of camera was a breeze and started taking unbelievable pictures withing minutes! Excellent digital camera for around *** ! Check out online reviews (esp on YouTube) to see why this camera is the best!
I too, like the first rating for this product did not receive a tripod when it was in the description and photos when I bought it. I threatened to write a review as bad as that one if I did not receive what I bought. The service rep got on it and spoke with his manager and helped me out. I am expecting a tripod in the mail now. That said, all you really want from this kit is the camera, batteries, and an SD card. Everything else is a bonus and the price was good when I got it (Sale for ***). Sony a6000's with e-mount lens only occasionally comes up for the price so I thought this was the time. You can read and watch SEVERAL reviews online for this camera so by now you should know what you are getting. I was not impressed with the camera bag and will continue using what we already have been using but it could be useful for someone who doesn't have a bag. I'm likely to part with mine. I do like that this kit came with 2 batteries since they are notorious for needing more than one for shoots. Bummer it didn't come with a charger so you can only charge when the battery is in the camera. Another plus is an SD card reader that plugs into your USB port...that is slick. Looking forward to using this camera for personal / family / business purposes. Happy to find it at the price!
Satisfied with my first purchase on Overstock.com. This Sony HX60V replaced an HX50V which had been dropped ... Twice. A few improvements made this fine camera even finer. No regrets. Would highly recommend Overstock and Sony.
