My last Sony after many years . . .

Summary: My last Sony after years of buying Sony. The products has all sorts of annoying traits, meaning they have lost their minds. No way to attached the lens cap so it is always lost. The flash is situated back on the camera so that if you take a close up it shadows.
Summary: I loved this camera, but after only 1 yr and 1 month the lens had major issues. It would frequently freeze and be unable to retract unless the battery was removed. The lens would also move in and out and would not stop unless the battery was removed.
Summary: I have owned the 50, Hx-1, HX200 and now the 300. The best camera they made was the HSC50, The HX-1 is ok as a back-up camera. All three of those had one great feature that they eliminated in the HX300. That is the lens cap falling off when you turn the camera on.
Summary: This camera only lasted me 6 months before it got all glitchy and sad. All in all I was very disappointed in it. The version with 30x zoom is much better in overall quality. Whatever you do, don't buy one of these without investing in insurance.
Summary: I bought this item several weeks ago but returned it because it did not perform up to the Sony standards I was expecting. I have a HX100 and I love it, but I wanted to upgrade, but this camera falls well short. When taking pictures, the lens appears jumpy, especially in long zooms.
Summary: Purchased and returned because the image quality is not as good as Sony's HX100 which I own. Images at long zoom ranges are generally of poor quality. Disappointed that image quality is not better.
Summary: This is a fantastic bit of kit with one BIG BUT. All my previous digital cameras came with a CD ROM. With this you have to download from the Sony web-site and I find that impossible with Windows 7.

Summary: may just be mine but this thing takes ages between shots, I have tried new cards, all the settings and even rang Sony, who said anything up to 20 seconds between shots was acceptable,,, not in my book it's not!
