  • Summary: The DSC-W300's pictures are clear, vibrant and free of noise and distortion. It performs well in almost any situation and is well-built to handle the rigours of travel.
  • Pros: Small and well built, easy to use, manual aperture and shutter control, good low-light performance
  • Cons: Slow and imprecise zoom control, sometimes hard to focus, battery life is a little short, manual aperture only has three stops to select from

  • 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

  • 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).

Test: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W300 (Digitalkamera)

CHIP Online
23 January 2009
  • Conclusion: Sony hat es mit der W300 geschafft, die mit extremen Megapixelzahlen verbundenen Fallstricke zu umgehen, doch einen erkennbaren Leistungsvorteil bieten die 13,4 Megapixel auch nicht. Insgesamt ist die Kamera aber ein attraktiver, flotter Mini mit guter Bildqualität.
  • Pros: Gute Bildqualität, schick und sehr robust, Flott
  • Cons: Kein Auflösungsvorteil, Langsame Einschaltzeit

Flott und robust: Sony Cybershot DSC-W300

CNET
16 September 2008
  • Summary: Die echten Qualitäten der W300 liegen im Design, der solide Bauweise und Ausfertigung sowie in ihrer Reaktionsfreudigkeit. Die verspielten Features werden wohl keinem Fotografen tatsächlich zu besseren Fotos verhelfen. Auch vom Sensor sollte man sich nicht allzu viel versprechen, trotz seiner enormen 13,6 Millionen Pixel und ISO 6400. Und der Dreifach-Zoom ist weder flexibel noch besonders gut.
  • Pros: solide Bauart, ordentliche Ausfertigung, manuelle Bedienelemente, schneller Autofokus
  • Cons: durchschnittliches Objektiv, viele Features sind nur Spielereien
