This is a great looking camera that's easy to use. Like the entire ZR line of cameras, the ZR400 minimizes the distance between lens and viewfinder, giving it a compact, easy-to-hold, easy-to-carry form -- without sacrificing functionality.
Enhanced design features include:
Big and Bright LCD Viewscreen and Viewfinder mean you have no trouble composing your shots, following the action, or reviewing your video and photographs. Your ZR400 comes equipped with a bright, 2.4" Color LCD (112,000 pixels) viewscreen and a 0.33" Color Viewfinder (113,000 pixels). Not only that, the ZR400 comes equipped with an innovative LCD backlight feature that increases the display's brightness by 250% -- letting you see what you shot, even on a bright sunny day.
Switching Modes is Easy because the program selector is located beside the LCD display.
Improved Stability is achieved through a finger rest located on the upper side of the grip.
Easy-to-Use Buttons: On the ZR400, the PLAY and STOP buttons are independent, and the FF and RW buttons are located together. This makes the controls much easier to use while reviewing video.
Shooting Comfort is increased with the stylish, oval-shaped grip located at the top of the lens.
Easy Zoom Control is the result of the new flat zoom lever design. The design also helps reduce the physical size of the ZR400.
Streamlined Design is the result of attention to details such as a slimmer operation Switch.
