Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W300

PC Magazine
5 March 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.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W300

28 August 2008
  • Summary: The W300's real qualities are its design, build, finish and responsiveness. The features are fun, but don't expect them to change your photography. And don't expect too much from that sensor, either, despite its stratospheric 13.6 million pixels and ISO 6,400.
  • Pros: Size and finish; manual controls; fast auto-focus.
  • Cons: Average lens; gimmicky features.

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.
