Summary: What makes one of Sony's latest Cyber-Shot models, the DSC-WX300, so impressive isn't its feature list. At this price point, we've come to expect an 18.2-megapixel CMOS image sensor, 20x optical zoom lens, WiFi, Full HD 1080p video, 10 frames per second high speed burst shooting, and a 3.0-inch LCD display. So yeah, those things are all great.

Cons: Small/Weak flash, Some noise in all images / Normal for a small, high res. sensor, No Audio input, Terrible audio from built-in mic
Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot WX300 has an outstanding battery life, compact design and wireless features. You get plenty of modes and it is small enough to slip into a pocket or purse. If you want a small camera with a zoom lens this is good option.

Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot WX300 is available for around £280; similarly svelte, long zoom cameras include the Canon Powershot SX260HS which is priced around £180, Sony’s own less expensive HX20V (Around £210) and Nikon’s Coolpix S9500 at around £260. Fuji’s FinePix F900 costs much more at around £305 while the Panasonic Lumix TZ40 is even pricier at around £380 and like this Sony; many cameras come equipped with Wi-Fi today if this is the feature, which you need.
Pros: Large optical zoom; Built-in Wi-fi; Responsive in operation; Fast focusing
Cons: Body almost too small in conjunction with the lens; Noise is a major issue above ISO 800
Excerpt: We've become used to having 20x zooms in pocket-sized cameras, but the Sony WX300 sets a new standard for miniaturisation. At just 26mm thick and 165g, it slips easily into jeans pockets. There's no skimping on the features, though, with a 3in LCD screen, mode dial, rear wheel and integrated Wi-Fi. The battery isn't particularly big but it gives 500 shots from a single charge – almost double the average for pocket ultra-zoom cameras.
Review: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 - Compact 20x Zoom Camera
14 August 2013
Excerpt: Every traveller likes to preserve memories of his/her journeys, and a camera is the best way to do that. Such a camera falls under the travel-zoom category and ideally features compact dimensions, light weight, powerful zoom, GPS, and long battery life. Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 gives it all in addition to Full HD movie capture and Wi-Fi. In fact, the company is touting it to be the world's smallest and lightest camera with 20x optical zoom. We have reviewed it today.
Pros: Good overall performance; Fast shooting; Crisp screen; Full manual control; Powerful zoom in a compact and lightweight body with solid build, Wi-Fi remote control from Android devices.
Summary: Sony has forged a formidable reputation for cutting edge design over the years. And with the Cyber-shot DSC-WX 300, it has added another dimension to it. For this is a camera that will fit into the palm of your hand more easily than some large screen handsets out there, but still manages to pack a stackful of features within what seems like an impossibly small frame.
Summary: Billed as one of the smallest 20x optical zoom camera, Sony CyberShot DSC-WX300 is the coolest thing around, as of now. A pocketable digital camera, it comes pakced with 18.2 sensor and supports Wi-Fi. Sharp edges, classically styled and decent flush screen makes WX300 a champ, though if it could have been few thousands less, it would have been a more profitable deal for a mid-income consumer.
Pros: Sharp long zoom lens , Full HD video , Compact & light , Excellent image quality , Wi-Fi enabled , Good color reproduction
Cons: No rubber grip , Lacks macro mode in auto mode , Slow focus at full zoom
Excerpt: Sony are a company that has ambition. They're extremely determined to get to the top spot in every field they work in. But it wasn't until they took over operations of digital imaging from Konica Minolta that they really started to fly in the digital camera markets. They'd been producing decent cameras before then, but when workers from Konica Minolta moved over to Sony, the electronics company started migrating the technology too.
Excerpt: The Sony Cybershot DSC-WX300 is a digital camera which is pocketable, yet packs a 20x optical zoom lens, Wi-Fi and an 18.2 Exmor R CMOS sensor. It is available in red, white and black for £280.00.
Pros: Small body, 20x optical zoom lens, Built-in Wi-Fi, Up to 10 fps continuous shooting, Excellent battery life, Images have good colours, Impressive focus speeds
Cons: Image detail could be better, Images are noisy from ISO 800 upwards
