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 DSC-HX300 Review

Review guidelines
21 June 2013
  • Summary: The Sony DSC-HX300 is an interesting type of compact camera that integrates a bridge camera body, particularly ergonomic, an electronic viewfinder, a display Triluminos high-resolution, optical zoom truly remarkable, full manual controls, a high sensitivity and a high-resolution sensor. The only flaw is the lack of support for the RAW format. Perhaps the sale price is a bit high considering that you can buy an SLR basis.
  • Pros: SteadyShot optical stabilizer; Carl Zeiss optics, high optical zoom, optical viewfinder, sensor resolution, display resolution, manual controls and automatic; Ergonomic housing; Exmor R CMOS sensor; Triluminos Colour Technology, Built-in flash
  • Cons: No support external flash, No RAW support

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

  • 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

Sony HX300 review

TechRadar UK
20 February 2013
  • Summary: Big body, huge lens and large resolution bridge camera
  • Pros: Sharp results handheld at maximum optical reach, Manual zoom, Tilting rear LCD, The rock solid build, the sophisticated styling, the sloping edges of the design and of course the extremely broad focal range are all very appealing features.
  • Cons: No raw shooting, Small sensor yet large pixel count, Not hotshoe or accessory port, The Sony HX300 lacks the sort of features one might expect from a bridge camera at this price, such as principally raw shooting, but also dedicated buttons for the likes of ISO, eye-activated viewfinder... our list of 'wants' goes on.

  • Excerpt: Det bjuds på galna 50x optisk zoom och en utmärkt ergonomi som påminner om en spegelreflexkamera. En helt nyutvecklad bildstabilisering säkrar knivskarpa bilder vid alla brännvidder. Det finns dock en gräns man aldrig bör ...

  • Excerpt: HX300 ligger riktigt bra mellan händerna, och den har gott om knappar, vilket drar upp betyget för användarvänlighet. Den har dock testets sämst strukturerade menysystem, vilket drar ner.

  • 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.

Test: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX300 (Digitalkamera)

CHIP Online
21 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Fazit: Die Sony HX300 präsentiert sich im Test als zoomstarke Bridge-Kamera mit enormer Ausstattung. Die Kombination aus 50fach-Zoom und 20 Megapixeln justiert die Grenze des technisch Machbaren neu aus – und ist verantwortlich für das schwache Abschneiden im Test. Ihre enorme Auflösung kann die HX300 nicht sinnvoll nutzen. Stattdessen enttäuschen Bildrauschen und die schwache Detailtreue.
  • Pros: 50fach-Zoom, Schneller Autofokus, Überzeugendes Full-HD-Video, Sehr guter Bildstabilisator, Sehr gutes Ausstattungs-Niveau
  • Cons: Bildrauschen, Bildschärfe im Tele, Schwache Detailtreue, Zentrales Bedienelement zu leichtgängig, Kleiner, pixeliger Sucher
