Sony H400
The Sony H400 is a budget super zoom.
By Hillary Grigonis, Last updated on: 6/19/2014

It's common for budget models to have a CCD sensor and a burst speed that's the equivalent of a snail's pace and the Sony H400 seems to follow that logic. It uses a 1/2.3" CCD sensor and the burst speed is just .71 fps, though it can take 100 images in a row at that speed. The perk to the H400 is the 63x optical zoom with optical image stabilization, that's a big zoom for the price. If you can swing a little extra cash, the Olympus SP-100 or Nikon P530 offer a lot more speed. Also make sure to check for deals on the Sony HX300 first, which is last year's model of the more advanced HX350.
