Sony HX300

Imaging Resource
21 November 2013
  • Conclusion: As we felt with its predecessor, the Sony HX200V, we think the Sony HX300's strengths far outweigh its limitations, making this all-in-one superzoom a solid option for anyone who wants a camera to do a little bit of everything.
  • Pros: Crazy-versatile 50x optical zoom lens, offering 24mm-1,200mm (!) equivalent coverage, Comfy and generally portable camera build; looks and feels like a small DSLR but doesn't require multiple lenses, Nice, ergonomic, leather-textured rubberized handgrip feels solid and secure when you're holding ...
  • Cons: Slightly bigger and heavier than previous camera, puts it close to some DSLRs (without lenses) in size, Plastic construction feels cheap, particularly the Shutter button and surrounding Zoom ring, Electronic viewfinder hasn't been upgraded from previous model; it's still small and low resolution,...

  • Summary: The new 20 megapixel Cyber-shot DSC HX300 replaces the HX200 in Sony’s ultra-zoom line-up. When I was a kid we watched Sci-Fi movies and read Sci-Fi novels that predicted all the new inventions that would make our lives more fun in the future.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, Exemplary handgrip, Fast f2.8 maximum aperture
  • Cons: Unintuitive menu system, Zoom control ring lags

  • Cons: No wifi or GPS option., Lacks eye sensor for EVF., Lacks built-in ND filter., Lacks RAW shooting mode., Limited customisation options.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX300 review

8 November 2013
  • Excerpt: The Sony HX300 wasn't available in time for our round up of bridge cameras last month, but it's here now and we have the full low down on its competitors to measure it against. Big numbers abound in the specifications, including a 20-megapixel sensor, 50x zoom, a 921,600-dot articulated screen and...

  • Summary: On paper, the HX300 is class-leading in many areas: its wide 50x optical zoom, high-resolution sensor, good EVF and rear tilt LCD. However, how a camera performs is what really matters.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX300 Review

Tech2
22 June 2013
  • Summary: Priced at an MRP of Rs 25,990, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX300 is the most affordable super-zoom digital camera with 50x optical zoom. But that doesn’t mean it’s best value for money. You don’t get hot-shoe for external flash, RAW support, fully articulating LCD monitor, eye sensor for EVF and GPS.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX300

PhotographyBLOG
3 May 2013
  • Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX300 is a rather modest update of last year's HX200V model, principally adding a bigger 50x zoom and slightly more megapixels. This doesn't feel like enough of a step forward though, especially as most of our criticisms of the HX300 haven't been addressed, namely a lack of...

Sony Cyber-shot HX300

Pocket Lint
4 April 2013
  • Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot HX300 is a quality superzoom camera from a use and performance point of view, but its high-resolution image sensor drops the ball when it comes to image quality finery.
  • Pros: f/2.8 aperture at the wide-angle setting, manual zoom and focus ring, considerable zoom range, decent optical stabilisation system, close-up macro mode (at wide-angle settings) works a treat, tilt-angle LCD has its uses, electronic viewfinder helps to stabilise long shot preview and is useful whe...
  • Cons: Image quality is trying to do too much, even low ISO shots suffer from excessive processing artefacts, no raw capture, pricey, overexposure can be a problem, camera won't always opt to use acceptable shutter speeds with auto ISO, no automatic viewfinder activation
