Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300

CNET
4 August 2009
  • Summary: A great design, fast shooting, and lots of features can't overcome the fact that the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300 simply doesn't take very good pictures.
  • Pros: Fast performance; tons of handy image editing and playback features; zoom rocker is in a much more comfortable position.
  • Cons: Soft, noisy photos.

  • Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300 produces high-quality images and sports a luxuriously large widescreen LCD, but this slick camera's battery life is bad news.
  • Pros: Solid image quality. Sleek design. Large 3.5-inch widescreen LCD. Touch-screen controls. Descriptive menus.
  • Cons: Expensive. Short battery life.

DP Review
7 February 2009
  • Conclusion: Our initial impressions of the T300 were not positive - with the function guide adding delays (but no useful information), and a 'plink' sound effect that screamed 'lifestyle accessory,' rather than 'camera,' every time it was touched (which does nothing to solidify the 'cameraness differentiation'). However, with these two turned off, the camera is transformed into a not-unpleasant, carry-everywhere snap shooter.
  • Pros: Small, smart design, Long zoom for such a slim camera, Touch-screen interface generally pleasant to use, Largest possible screen for a camera of its size, Feature-packed (including DRO and image stabilization), Clever focus point selection, Post processing options well implemented
  • Cons: Noise reduction that reduces image quality at all settings, Terrible battery life, Poor use of screen in playback mode, Over-enthusiastic reds, Higher ISO settings of very limited use, Lack of manual white balance (combined with average presets and inaccurate preview), Uninformative and frustrating 'Function Guide' mode, Redundant power button

  • Conclusion: Sony CyberShot DSC-T300 digital camera The first acquaintance with the Sony T300 left quite an impression, an impression of a unique and stylishly designed camera. One that makes Sony stand out from the rest of the market. The nice and moreover solid design beams with quality, with on top of that a unique design. The integration of the intelligent software solution that facilitates digital photography once again, adds to the value of the Sony Cybershot T300.

Sony Cyber-Shot T300

Digital Photography Interface
9 September 2008
  • Conclusion: Overall, the Sony Cyber-shot T300 has some pretty attractive features for the crowd: a 5X optical zoom lens, equipped with image stabilization, a very big touchscreen display (which you won't find on any other camera at the moment) and considering the size of that LCD, above average battery life. The T300's highlight features such as Face Detection with an automatic smile-snapping function and fun playback modes make going about to point-and-snap photos more enjoyable.
  • Pros: Bigger-than-average 5X stabilized zoom lens, Above average battery life (especially for a screen this big), Very big touchscreen LCD that's usable outdoors, Functional and settable Face Detection and Smile Shutter modes, Above average performance (except burst mode), Many playback mode functions with fun editing features, Good image quality below ISO 400
  • Cons: No manual controls, Fingerprints on touchscreen are unavoidable, Tiny zoom controller and no place for fingers on the back, Touchscreen interface is not too responsive and requires too many presses to navigate; can't change settings quickly, 10 minute per clip limitation in movie mode, Slow and limited burst mode, Redeye, edge softness and lots of detail loss at higher ISO

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
25 April 2008
  • Summary: Althought the Sony Cyber-shot T300 has a snazzy, slim design and an innovative 3.5-inch touchscreen, the camera's designers might want to go back to the drawing board and improve image quality and overall ease of use. For a camera with as many sophisticated features as the T300 has, it's a shame that it takes such subpar pictures.

Cameras
8 August 2014
  • Conclusion: The Sony DSC T300 takes a good picture and in my opinion has a stunning design. Picture quality does not quite match up to the very best, but if your main consideration is design, as long as the camera can still take a decent snap, then the DSC T300 is well worth considering.
  • Pros: Ease of use - design - touch LCD screen
  • Cons: Lowlight photos could be better

  • Summary: An attractive package for those looking for a stylish and fairly simple compact. It can be slow at times and there are some image quality issues, but the pictures are fine for small print sizes and many will appreciate the aesthetics and futuristic menu system.
  • Pros: Sharp images, stylish design, touch screen interface, low levels of noise
  • Cons: Some over-sharpening, interface can be sluggish, slow start-up time

  • Conclusion: The usability and ingenuity of the T300's touch-screen prevents style triumphing over substance, but watch out for soft images, pixel fringing and occasional lens flare
