Weak Latch on ba doorttery
Kearstin Edwards, Amazon
6 September 2015
Summary: Liked the features on this camera, but upon arrival I realized how weak the door catch on the battery door was. It wouldn't fully close w/ the battery installed. It did close, but bowed out and looked like it would break the latch in time. Returned it without using it and ordered a cannon instead.
Wrong USB Cable means no recharging batteries, no ability to set-up Wi-Fi

Summary: Unhappy both with the wrong USB cable limiting me on my extended trip and forcing me to spend money on batteries and to search for a USB Cable that will work (my cellphone, tablet and other charger cables don't fit either). Also unhappy with photos. They are all dark.
Summary: The camera itself is a little smaller than imagined but works great. However, I would recommend buying the camera on its own because this kit came without the case. I had to contact Amazon to get a new (and not the advertised) case sent to me a week later.
Summary: Had used it for a function at my house for the first time and decided to return it. Though the size is very compact and a good 20X zoom, the most important thing is the picture. This gives you a blur picture if there is a slightest movement by the subject.
Summary: Photos are good, but unless on rapid shoot it takes seconds to process. And I haven't (to date) found a way to control how to choose the focus options. For extended zoom (as expected) you will need a steady rest. Small enough to fit in a pocket and light enough to not be bulky.
Summary: Purchased camera based on the glowing review and the 20X zoom. However, I was very disappointed. 1. the image quality was nowhere near as good as my 3 year old Nex 5 which only has 14MP WX300 produced grainy image in-door well-lit with or without flash. without flash, it produces even worse image 2.
Sony DSC-WX300/B 18 MP Digital Camera with 20x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 3-Inch LCD (Black)

Summary: Shipping and delivery time were great. Right on time. The camera and attachments were all there and packing was great. The camera took several great shots the first couple of days. Then my wife and I wanted to download shots to her computer.
Summary: I received this Sony DSC-WX300 camera as part of the Amazon Vine review program. I have been procrastinating on doing my review because I really, really wanted to like this camera and wanted to give it a fair chance.
