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. The HX300's 50x optical zoom lens is a huge upgrade and an incredible tool, offering 24-1,200mm equivalent coverage.
  • 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 it, Handy, fold-out 3-inch rear LCD screen with 921,600 dots of resolution for crisp image in record and playback, Better placement of Movie button prevents accidental recordi...

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX300 Review

Digital Camera Review
24 September 2013
  • Excerpt: 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. One of the things that nobody predicted, back in that day, was cell phones and consequently cell phone cameras.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, Exemplary handgrip, Fast f2.8 maximum aperture
  • Cons: Unintuitive menu system, Zoom control ring lags

Sony joins the 50x club with the HX300

CNET
5 July 2013
  • Summary: It can't match some of its competition in the features department, but the Sony Cyber-shot HX300 still packs a powerful zoom lens and plenty of point-and-shoot punch.
  • Pros: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX300 has strong image stabilization to back up its 50x zoom lens; excellent picture quality for its class; and a large assortment of shooting options for all levels of photographers.
  • Cons: The HX300's 20-megapixel sensor doesn't translate into better picture quality. It doesn't have a hot shoe, GPS, or Wi-Fi built in. Captures JPEG only, no raw.

Sony Cyber-shot HX300

Camera Labs
1 June 2013
  • Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot HX300 is Sony's flagship compact super-zoom. It sits above the HX200, extending the zoom range to a whopping 50x, from a super-wide 24mm all the way to a 1200mm super-telephoto that any papparazzi would be proud of. And the range isn't the only impressive thing about the HX300's lens.
  • Pros: Huge 50x 24-1200mm zoom range., Excellent optical image stabilisation., Articulated 3 inch LCD screen., Dial mode focus/zoom lens ring.
  • 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

expertreviews.co.uk
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 1080-50p video recording. There are some notable weaknesses in the spec sheet too, though. A hotshoe might have spoiled the curvaceous design but we'd still like to have one.

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. We've achieved some cracking shots using the camera - and that considerable 50x zoom with optical stabilisation is a great enabler - but close-up inspection reveals a variety of imperfections.
  • 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 when shooting in bright conditions
  • 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

Test av Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX300

26 November 2013
  • Summary: HX300 har hela 50x optisk zoom, vilket innebär att man kan ta alla slags bilder. En nyutvecklad bildstabilisering och en förbättrad autofokus säkrar skarpa bilder vid alla brännvidder, och kamerans ergonomi är bra. Kamerans lilla bildsensor och höga upplösning betyder tyvärr också att vi bara kan rekommendera att man fotograferar vid låga iso-värden.

  • Conclusion: Si eres un aficionado a la fotografía, te gusta capturar imágenes sin complicaciones y sueles usar el zoom, esta Cyber-shot puede ser una gran opción. Si tienes conocimientos técnicos puedes aprovecharla mejor por sus controles manuales; sino, usarla en modo Automático Inteligente para obtener buenas fotografías.
  • Pros: El zoom óptico de 50x te permite acercarte muchísimo a objetos que estén lejanos. Tiene una calidad suficiente para hacer impresiones de gran tamaño y su precio es adecuado para las funciones con las que cuenta.
  • Cons: Como tiene forma de cámara profesional, es difícil que la puedas usar en conciertos o eventos similares. Su tamaño puede ser un pequeño inconveniente.
