Sony HX300

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

  • 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.
  • 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.
