Breakable and not as good a deal as the HX-100

E. Smith "pinnacles", Amazon
30 January 2014
  • 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.

Very dissapointed

Bsheppard, Amazon
3 September 2013
  • 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. I had it mounted to my tripod and when zoomed the lens seems to jitter and would not take a smooth picture. Even in the same focal length as my HX100 it fell short.

Image Quality Not As Good as Sony HX100

D. Hatcher "4jenesaispas", Amazon
17 April 2013
  • 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.

Not so easy to shot wildlife with it!

Aisse Gaertner, B&H Photo
5 April 2013
  • Excerpt: I had HX1 and HX100, now I'm trying the new HX300. I can tell that shot with it is not easy, tripod here is a obligation! There is no picture review in viewfinder, once you click the play button the image jump to LCD. There is no 2 sec. timer when shot in continuous shot mode (I always use timer when with tripod, but the wildlife mostly can't wait 10 sec.). There is no possibility to use ISO above 800 when shooting continuously. There is no way to turn off the preview.
  • Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Video, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color
  • Cons: Must Have Tripod, No Review In Finder, Poor Image Quality, Poor Image Stabilization, Short Battery Life

No CD ROM

Mr. Roy Haines, Amazon
23 August 2013
  • 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. I have spent hours on this today with my local friendly computer expert to no avail unless (he thinks) I buy the latest Windows software at £150+.
