Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W300

PC Magazine
22 January 2009
  • Conclusion: Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-W300 point-and-shoot camera takes pleasing pictures, especially in daylight. Its quirky menu system and tiny buttons take some getting used to, however.
  • Pros: Attractive, compact design. Fast performance. Vivid and sharp daylight shots.
  • Cons: Inconsistently exposed flash pictures. Tiny menu dial can be tough to operate. Menu system is a bit confusing.

Digital Camera Review
6 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Digital cameras don't seem to be getting smaller anymore; in fact compact and ultracompact point-and-shoot digicams appear to have reached the practical limits of miniaturization. However, resolution (more megapixels) and popular features like Face Recognition AF, larger LCD screens, and image stabilization continue to proliferate.
  • Pros: Compact, 13.6 megapixels, Excellent images with fairly neutral color, Simple operation, Broad appeal
  • Cons: Expensive, Clunky menus

  • Summary: Sony's new Cyber-shot DSC-W300 digital camera is expected to be among the industry's most pocket-able, high-resolution point-and-shoot digital cameras featuring niche performance options. The camera announced today integrates an ultra-high 13.6-megapixel CCD imager along with a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 3x optical zoom lens, a 2.7-inch LCD screen and an eye-level viewfinder in a compact size.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W300 Review

Digitaltrends

  • Conclusion: As a go-everywhere point-and-shoot digicam, I have no problems recommending the DSC-W300. You get plenty of pixels, very fast response, optical image stabilization and quick focusing in good light. When shooting in available light without the flash, there’s a bit of a lag saving files to the card but nothing too terrible. The LCD screen works well but has problems with direct sunlight; fortunately the viewfinder saves the day in those instances.
  • Pros: Affordable; responsive 13.6MP compact camera
  • Cons: Noisy in low light; LCD hard to see in direct sunshine

Digital Arts
23 February 2009
  • Excerpt: The Cyber-shot W300 is a pocket-sized camera that offers one of best balances of size, performance and ease-of-use we've seen – and to us it’s one of the best looking to boot. It’s not without flaws, but overall it’s a cracking little camera.
  • Pros: Excellent output. Great IS system. Some manual controls. Great looks.
  • Cons: Proprietary card format. Manual aperture can be changed by full f-stops only.
