Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W300 Review

Digitaltrends
30 June 2008
  • Excerpt: It’s hard to believe you can buy a 13.6-megapixel point-and-shoot digicam for under $349 USD from a top brand—not simply a piece of junk from some godforsaken outfit working in the farthest depths of this globalized world. Think 13 or 14MP is a lot? There’s no end to the megapixel race as camera makers constantly try to outdo one another day-by-day.
  • Pros: Affordable; responsive 13.6MP compact camera
  • Cons: Noisy in low light; LCD hard to see in direct sunshine

  • Pros: Incredibly simple operation gives highly impressive results. Jaw-dropping looks.
  • Cons: The 3x zoom can't match the sheer power of the 13MP sensor.

  • Conclusion: With a battle-ready build quality and high resolution suggesting the W300 as a camera you'll still be using three years hence, substance declares a draw with style

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W300 review Review

CNET
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

  • Summary: As ever with Sony's Cyber-shot range, the DSC-W300 is as much about style as substance. The metal build quality suggests this is a camera that you'll still be using a few years down the line, a feeling backed up by that whopping 13+ megapixel resolution, plus its plentifully large and bright rear LCD (look back at a camera from four or five years ago when 1.5-inches was the norm and find a product looking positively prehistoric).

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W300

  • Summary: Although we like the features and image quality of the W300, it lacks a wide-angle lens which has become a must-have for a premium shooter. While other alternatives in the market may not offer as high a capture resolution as the Sony, they do make up with other features.
  • Pros: High 13.6-megapixel resolution, Titanium-coated body, Responsive face detection and Smile Shutter, Optical image stabilization, Low noise level even at high ISO
  • Cons: Lack of wide-angle lens, Average time-to-first-shot, Uses only Memory Stick Duo storage media, Relatively pricey for a point-and-shoot
