Summary: This bought for my wives birth day and At the time of purchase this was very expensive, why? I don't know maybe for the name. Build quality is good, battery life is good, included accessories also good then we get to the pictures. For such a high res camera you would expect great pics, well you do get great pics if it's a nice sunny day outside! So if it's sunny but your inside it's no good, if it's dark outside its no good and if it's dark inside it's even worse!
Summary: The Camera itself is great, it takes very good pictures. It has excellent resolution, it is very easy to use and the colours are absolutely great. I found its performance in low light quite exceptional. The HD output is an added bonus. However, we've had few problems with the Camera. First, the battery life is simply not good enough.
Excerpt: What a beautiful well made camera. The DSC-W300 sure has moved on from my old Sony camera (which is still in fine working order). Im impressed with the large LCD screen and the fairly easy to use menus. The smile recognition actually seems to work in about 95% of the cases. I could go on and on about how good it is, and yes it is good, very good, but it could have been perfect. So why didnt I rate it 5 stars? A few little minor things that Sony should sort out.

Summary: it ok, but not worth the money. in other words i wouldnt buy it again. i dont think the imagine quality is all its cracked up to be. ive had mine for a mere 2 months and its starting to act up in terms of the features, accessing pictures and in taking shots. eg. try to take shots with or without flash and it wont take them or is so delayed that the image i was trying to get has moved on. definately get better for less.
Pros: video is quite good. its pretty can produce nice pictures
Cons: delayed dodgey progamming smile dectector is very picky
Summary: - Pelo fato de ter 13,5 eu esperava mais nitidez nas fotos e comparando as fotos dela com minha antiga câmera de 6 mp Sony a antiga tem mais nitidez apesar de ter metade da resolução, eu não entendi isso, parece até que os 13 mp são forçados, fiz uma comparação de fotos com a LUMIX da Panasonic e na minha opinião as fotos da Lumix ficaram mais nítidas, mas não me arrependo em ter comprado a W300.
Pros: Recursos de macro foto excepcionais, opções de iso com acesso fácil, o estabilizador fotográfico também é ótimo, tempo de resposta para foto muito bom, recuso de 100 fotos seguidas é 10., A captação de áudio e excelente., Os menus são de fácil acesso e intuitivos., Compacta e fina, Inicia o sistema rapidamente.
Cons: As foto poderiam ser mais nítidas., A bateria deveria durar mais, O tempo de recarga da bateria deveria ser menor que 5 horas, A Sony deveria utilizar pilhar recarregáveis em vez de baterias podem ter diminuído o tamanho da camera mas perdemos em autonomia e facilidade de uso e preços mais acessíveis, O cabo que descarrega as fotos deveria ser USB ou oferecerem essa opção também., O flash deixou um pouco a desejar, nao sou fotografo profissional mas mais uma vez compa...
