Anyone compared HX-400V with Nikon P600?
Apr 8, 2014

I've been using the HX-100V for several years. I use it almost only for long zoom shots.  For anything under about 100mm, I use a Nex.

I have just bought the HX-400 after not purchasing the 200 or 300 because they didn't seem like enough of a step up.  I haven't yet decided to keep the HX-400.  After a little more time with it (it just arrived today) I'll post my observations here.

I was wondering if anyone had done any careful comparison to the Nikon P600 and could offer their comments.  I trying to decide if I need to try that camera.

Here is what I'm looking for.  I would like the 1200 or more zoom of either of these cameras over the HX-100's 810mm, provided that the IQ is at least as good or better.  I am also very sensitive to handling and speed issues as I shoot a lot of birds in flight where those characteristics are critical.  A few years ago I tried the Canon HX-50IS which had very nice IQ but blacked out the vf/lcd when shooting in high speed burst.  That was unacceptable to me.

Anyone have anything to share on this topic?
