5 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX400V

196x Bigger Digital Zoom

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V has a digital zoom of 200, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is only a 32x digital zoom digital camera (168x smaller), the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 is only an 80x digital zoom digital camera (120x smaller) and the Sony NEX5A and the Sony α Alpha A6000 are both only 4x digital zoom digital cameras (196x smaller). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

GPS

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V has a GPS, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350, the Sony NEX5A and the Sony α Alpha A6000 do not have this feature. More ...

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Has a Better Price

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V reviewers thought the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V has a better price.

Easier to Use

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V was easier to use. Several people thought that it was very easy to use, was comfortable and easy to hold and had good controls.

Has Useful Technical Features

Our analysis of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V has useful technical features. More than 10 people thought that it had very good features.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX400V

Heavier

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V is a 660 digital camera. That's 397g heavier than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II (263g), 523g heavier than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 (137g), 442g heavier than the Sony NEX5A (218g) and 375g heavier than the Sony α Alpha A6000 (285g). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

17% Lower Megapixels

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V has a megapixels of 20.4, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is a 20.2MP digital camera (0.2MP lower), the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 is an 18.2MP digital camera (2.2MP lower), the Sony NEX5A is a 16.1MP digital camera (4.3MP lower) and the Sony α Alpha A6000 is a 24.3MP digital camera (3.9MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V is only 3 maximum ISO speed, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 are both 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (9,600 higher), the Sony NEX5A is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (22,400 higher) and the Sony α Alpha A6000 is a 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (48,000 higher). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

4 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350, the Sony NEX5A and the Sony α Alpha A6000, which is 4 times lower video resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II (3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels). More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

307,200 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V has a display resolution of 921 (as do the Sony NEX5A and the Sony α Alpha A6000), whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is a 1,228,800 Pixels display resolution digital camera (307,200 pixels higher) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 is a 460,800 Pixels display resolution digital camera (460,800 pixels lower). More ...

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

170 Less Battery Life

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V is a digital camera that takes 300 battery life, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II only takes 310 battery life, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 only takes 470 battery life, the Sony NEX5A only takes 330 battery life and the Sony α Alpha A6000 only takes 360 battery life. More ...

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

$228 More Expensive

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V is more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 by $130 and more expensive than the Sony NEX5A by $228.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 3 stores sells the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, however 5 sellers sell the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II, 4 stores sell the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 and 5 retailers sell the Sony α Alpha A6000. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Over 2045 Years Older

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V is older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 by 2046 years, older than the Sony NEX5A by 2043 years and older than the Sony α Alpha A6000 by 2044 years. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V is the same age as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II.

11 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100 II

Smile Detection

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II features smile detection (as does the Sony α Alpha A6000), whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 and the Sony NEX5A do not feature this benefit. More ...

'Smile detection' is a special mode for a digital camera that can detect when the subject is smiling, and take the photo automatically when it detects a smile.

Automatic smile detection makes it easy to capture the perfect moment in a photo, and means you won't miss a brief smile due to poor reflexes.

3840 X 2160 (4K) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels, which is 4 times higher video resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350, the Sony NEX5A and the Sony α Alpha A6000 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels). More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Higher Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels pixels. However the best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350, the Sony NEX5A and the Sony α Alpha A6000 is only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels (4 times lower video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V support. More ...

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

Touchscreen

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II has a touchscreen (as does the Sony NEX5A), whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 and the Sony α Alpha A6000 do not have this feature. More ...

On a camera, this means that the digital display on the back of the camera is touch-sensitive, rather than relying on buttons.

Touchscreens are easier and more intuitive to control.

Bluetooth

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II features bluetooth, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350, the Sony NEX5A and the Sony α Alpha A6000 do not. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

Expert Reviews Are Better

Based on 124 reviews, the average expert review score of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is 90%, whereas the average rating of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 is 71% (based on 9 reviews) and the average rating of the Sony NEX5A is 81% (based on 250 reviews).

20 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100 II

Heavier

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is a 263 digital camera. That's 397g lighter than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V (660g), 126g heavier than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 (137g), 45g heavier than the Sony NEX5A (218g) and 22g lighter than the Sony α Alpha A6000 (285g). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Lower Megapixels

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II has a megapixels of 20.2, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V is a 20.4MP digital camera (0.2MP higher), the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 is an 18.2MP digital camera (2MP lower), the Sony NEX5A is a 16.1MP digital camera (4.1MP lower) and the Sony α Alpha A6000 is a 24.3MP digital camera (4.1MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Not Waterproof

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is not waterproof (As does the the Sony α Alpha A6000), however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 and the Sony NEX5A are. More ...

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you. Make sure to check the depth the camera can be used to if you intend to use it underwater at greater depths of for extended periods of time.

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you.

168x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II has a digital zoom of 32, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V is a 200x digital zoom digital camera (168x bigger), the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 is an 80x digital zoom digital camera (48x bigger) and the Sony NEX5A and the Sony α Alpha A6000 are both 4x digital zoom digital cameras (28x smaller). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

38,400 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is a 12 maximum ISO speed digital camera (as does the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350), whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V is a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (9,600 lower), the Sony NEX5A is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (12,800 higher) and the Sony α Alpha A6000 is a 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (38,400 higher). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

160 Less Battery Life

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II takes 310 battery life, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 only takes 470 battery life, the Sony NEX5A only takes 330 battery life and the Sony α Alpha A6000 only takes 360 battery life. More ...

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

$278 More Expensive

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V by $50, more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 by $180 and more expensive than the Sony NEX5A by $278.

Over 2045 Years Older

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 by 2046 years, older than the Sony NEX5A by 2043 years and older than the Sony α Alpha A6000 by 2044 years. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is the same age as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V.

Fewer Awards

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX350

Lighter

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 is a 137 digital camera. That's 523g lighter than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V (660g), 126g lighter than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II (263g), 81g lighter than the Sony NEX5A (218g) and 148g lighter than the Sony α Alpha A6000 (285g). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

11520 X 1080 Still Image Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 supports a still image resolution of 11520 x 1080, which is 3 times higher still image resolution as the Sony NEX5A (2448 x 1624) and twice as high still image resolution as the Sony α Alpha A6000 (3008 x 1688). We do not know what type of still image resolution the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II support. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

170 More Battery Life

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 takes 470 battery life, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V only takes 300 battery life, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II only takes 310 battery life, the Sony NEX5A only takes 330 battery life and the Sony α Alpha A6000 only takes 360 battery life. More ...

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Two Years Newer

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 is 2046 years newer than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, 2046 years newer than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II, two years newer than the Sony NEX5A and two years newer than the Sony α Alpha A6000

More Customers Recommend it

33.3% of 417 customers recommend the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350, but only 21.8% of 78 customers recommend the Sony α Alpha A6000.

Has a Better Lens

On average reviewers thought the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 has a better lens. More than 10 people thought that it had a brilliant zoom.

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX350

A Lot Lower Megapixels

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 has a megapixels of 18.2, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II are both 20.2MP digital cameras (2MP higher), the Sony NEX5A is a 16.1MP digital camera (2.1MP lower) and the Sony α Alpha A6000 is a 24.3MP digital camera (6.1MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

120x Smaller Digital Zoom

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 has a digital zoom of 80, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V is a 200x digital zoom digital camera (120x bigger), the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is a 32x digital zoom digital camera (48x smaller) and the Sony NEX5A and the Sony α Alpha A6000 are both 4x digital zoom digital cameras (76x smaller). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

38,400 Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 is a 12 maximum ISO speed digital camera (as does the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II), whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V is a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (9,600 lower), the Sony NEX5A is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (12,800 higher) and the Sony α Alpha A6000 is a 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (38,400 higher). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, the Sony NEX5A and the Sony α Alpha A6000, which is 4 times lower video resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II (3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels). More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Sony NEX5A and the Sony α Alpha A6000. However the best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (4 times higher video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V support. More ...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 also supports 1440 x 1080 pixels and 640 x 480 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

Vastly Lower Display Resolution

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 has a display resolution of 460, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, the Sony NEX5A and the Sony α Alpha A6000 are all 921,600 Pixels display resolution digital cameras (460,800 pixels higher) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is a 1,228,800 Pixels display resolution digital camera (768,000 pixels higher). More ...

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

$98 More Expensive

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 is more expensive than the Sony NEX5A by $98.

Fewer Sellers

Only 4 shops sells the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350, but 5 retailers sell the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II and 5 retailers sell the Sony α Alpha A6000. More ...

The smaller the number of stores that stock this digital camera, the lower the competition amongst stores to keep prices low.
A Lot Lower Expert Review Score

The average expert rating of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 is only 71%, whereas the average expert rating of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is 90% (based on 124 reviews), the Sony NEX5A is 81% (based on 250 reviews) and the Sony α Alpha A6000 is 90% (based on 49 reviews).

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony α Alpha A6000

26% Higher Megapixels

The Sony α Alpha A6000 is a 24.3 digital camera. That's 4.1MP higher than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II (20.2MP), 6.1MP higher than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 (18.2MP) and 8.2MP higher than the Sony NEX5A (16.1MP). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Smile Detection

The Sony α Alpha A6000 features smile detection, and so does the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 and the Sony NEX5A do not. More ...

'Smile detection' is a special mode for a digital camera that can detect when the subject is smiling, and take the photo automatically when it detects a smile.

Automatic smile detection makes it easy to capture the perfect moment in a photo, and means you won't miss a brief smile due to poor reflexes.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera.

Better Expert Reviews

Based on 49 reviews, the Sony α Alpha A6000 has an average expert review score of 90%, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 has an average rating of 71% (based on 9 reviews) and the Sony NEX5A has an average rating of 81% (based on 250 reviews).

Moderately Better User Reviews

Based on 29 reviews, the Sony α Alpha A6000 has an average user review score of 95%, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V has an average rating of 90% (based on 68 reviews), the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II has an average rating of 94% (based on 84 reviews), the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 has an average rating of 85% (based on 405 reviews) and the Sony NEX5A has an average rating of 85% (based on 26 reviews).

A Better Size

The Sony α Alpha A6000 reviewers thought the Sony α Alpha A6000 was a better size. Several people thought that the Sony Alpha A6000 was very compact, lightweight and was easy to carry around.

17 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony α Alpha A6000

A Lot Heavier

The Sony α Alpha A6000 has a weight of 285, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V is a 660g digital camera (375g heavier), the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is a 263g digital camera (22g lighter), the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 is a 137g digital camera (148g lighter) and the Sony NEX5A is a 218g digital camera (67g lighter). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Half As High Still Image Resolution

The Sony α Alpha A6000 supports a still image resolution of 3008 x 1688, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 supports a still image resolution of 11520 x 1080. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II support. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

Not Waterproof

The Sony α Alpha A6000 is not waterproof (As does the the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II), whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 and the Sony NEX5A are. More ...

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you. Make sure to check the depth the camera can be used to if you intend to use it underwater at greater depths of for extended periods of time.

Waterproof compacts or tough / rugged compacts allow you to take shots in all sorts of weather conditions and even take your camera snorkelling with you.

Smaller Digital Zoom

The Sony α Alpha A6000 is a 4 digital zoom digital camera, and so does the Sony NEX5A. That's 196x smaller than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V (200x), 28x smaller than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II (32x) and 76x smaller than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 (80x). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

4 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Sony α Alpha A6000 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as are the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 and the Sony NEX5A), however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II has a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels. More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Sony α Alpha A6000 is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 and the Sony NEX5A. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (4 times higher video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V support. More ...

The Sony α Alpha A6000 also supports 1440 x 1080 pixels and 640 x 480 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

307,200 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Sony α Alpha A6000 is a 921 display resolution digital camera, and so do the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V and the Sony NEX5A. That's 307,200 pixels lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II (1,228,800 Pixels) and 460,800 pixels higher than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 (460,800 Pixels). More ...

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Only 360 Battery Life

The Sony α Alpha A6000 is a digital camera that takes 360 battery life, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 only takes 470 battery life. More ...

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Does Not Feature Bluetooth

The Sony α Alpha A6000 does not feature bluetooth, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 and the Sony NEX5A do. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

More Expensive by $278

The Sony α Alpha A6000 is $50 more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, $180 more expensive than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 and $278 more expensive than the Sony NEX5A.

Older by Over Two Years

The Sony α Alpha A6000 is two years older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350.

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony NEX5A

Touchscreen

The Sony NEX5A has a touchscreen (as does the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II), but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 and the Sony α Alpha A6000 do not have this feature. More ...

On a camera, this means that the digital display on the back of the camera is touch-sensitive, rather than relying on buttons.

Touchscreens are easier and more intuitive to control.

3D

The Sony NEX5A is 3D, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 and the Sony α Alpha A6000 are not. More ...

3D compatible cameras can take 3D photos with varying degrees of success. Cameras with 2 lenses will generally be able to capture the best 3D pictures.

3D pictures allow you to capture the feel of a place better than a 2D picture could. However you will need a 3D compatible screen to appreciate the results.

Multi Burst Mode

The Sony NEX5A features multi burst mode, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 and the Sony α Alpha A6000 do not. More ...

'Multi burst mode' is a special setting on a digital camera to allow it to take multiple photos in very quick succession at a single button press.

Burst mode is very helpful for sports photography, or any time where you are trying to capture a fast-moving subject.

$98 Cheaper

The Sony NEX5A costs $169.95, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V is $398.00, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is $448.00, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 is $267.99 and the Sony α Alpha A6000 is $448.00.

27 More Awards

The Sony NEX5A has received 27 awards, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V has received no awards, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II has received 19 awards, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 has received no awards and the Sony α Alpha A6000 has received 10 awards.

8 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

CNET.com.au, Thestar.com.my, Techradar, Digital Versus, Digitaltrends.com, Les Numeriques.com, Portablegear.nl and Kamerabild.se all gave the Sony NEX5A a better review score. More ...

CNET.com.au: Sony NEX5A = 81% vs Sony α Alpha A6000 = 80%

More Nicely Designed

The Sony NEX5A reviewers thought the Sony NEX5A was more nicely designed. Over 10 people thought that it was very well designed and several people thought that it was also very good-looking and ergonomic.

Better for Video Capture

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Sony NEX5A was better for video capture. More than 30 people thought that it was very good for video recording.

22 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony NEX5A

28% Heavier

The Sony NEX5A is a 218 digital camera. That's 442g lighter than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V (660g), 45g lighter than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II (263g), 81g heavier than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 (137g) and 67g lighter than the Sony α Alpha A6000 (285g). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

8.2MP Lower Megapixels

The Sony NEX5A has a megapixels of 16.1, however the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II are both 20.2MP digital cameras (4.1MP higher), the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 is an 18.2MP digital camera (2.1MP higher) and the Sony α Alpha A6000 is a 24.3MP digital camera (8.2MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

3 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Sony NEX5A supports a still image resolution of 2448 x 1624, which is 3 times lower still image resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 (11520 x 1080). We do not know what type of still image resolution the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II support. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

Hugely Smaller Digital Zoom

The Sony NEX5A has a digital zoom of 4 (as does the Sony α Alpha A6000), but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V is a 200x digital zoom digital camera (196x bigger), the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is a 32x digital zoom digital camera (28x bigger) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 is an 80x digital zoom digital camera (76x bigger). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Sony NEX5A is only 25 maximum ISO speed, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V is a 3,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (22,400 lower), the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 are both 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital cameras (12,800 lower) and the Sony α Alpha A6000 is a 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera (25,600 higher). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

4 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Sony NEX5A has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 and the Sony α Alpha A6000, which is 4 times lower video resolution as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II (3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels). More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Sony NEX5A is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels which is also supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 and the Sony α Alpha A6000. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (4 times higher video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V support. More ...

The Sony NEX5A also supports 1440 x 1080 pixels and 640 x 480 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.

307,200 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Sony NEX5A has a display resolution of 921 (as do the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V and the Sony α Alpha A6000), whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is a 1,228,800 Pixels display resolution digital camera (307,200 pixels higher) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 is a 460,800 Pixels display resolution digital camera (460,800 pixels lower). More ...

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Sony NEX5A does not have a GPS, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 and the Sony α Alpha A6000 do. More ...

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

140 Less Battery Life

The Sony NEX5A is a digital camera that takes 330 battery life, whereas the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 only takes 470 battery life and the Sony α Alpha A6000 only takes 360 battery life. More ...

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 2 retailers sells the Sony NEX5A, however 3 stores sell the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V, 5 shops sell the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II, 4 shops sell the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 and 5 shops sell the Sony α Alpha A6000. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Over Two Years Older

The Sony NEX5A is older than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 by two years and older than the Sony α Alpha A6000 by four months.

Lower Expert Review Score

The Sony NEX5A has an average expert rating of 81%, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II has an average expert rating of 90% (based on 124 reviews) and the Sony α Alpha A6000 has an average expert rating of 90% (based on 49 reviews).

Appreciably Lower User Review Score

The Sony NEX5A has an average user rating of 85%, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V has an average user rating of 90% (based on 68 reviews), the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II has an average user rating of 94% (based on 84 reviews) and the Sony α Alpha A6000 has an average user rating of 95% (based on 29 reviews).
