Sony DSC-H300 overview

  • 1Description

The black Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 Digital Camera is a point-and-shoot camera featuring a 20.1 MP 1/2.3" Super HAD CCD image sensor for producing high resolution still imagery and HD 720p video. This sensor is benefited by the inclusion of a long-reaching 35x optical zoom lens, giving a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-875mm. For shooting in low-light conditions and when working at greater zoom magnifications, Optical SteadyShot image stabilization is available to counter the effects of camera shake.

For monitoring and playback of images, as well as navigating the menu system, a 3.0" 461k-dot Clear Photo LCD is available and offers five brightness steps to aid in viewing in bright conditions. There are also a host of camera effects to further refine the appearance of your imagery including Picture Effects, Beauty Effects, Face Detection, 360° Sweep Panorama, and iAuto mode. Additionally, the H300 is powered by 4 AA batteries.

20.1MP Super HAD CCD Sensor
The H300 integrates a 20.1 megapixel 1/2.3" Super HAD CCD image sensor to produce high resolution imagery that benefits from the 35x optical zoom lens and Optical SteadyShot image stabilization. The combination of these technologies renders sharp, detailed imagery suitable for both printing and sharing online. The sensor also enables HD video recording up to 1280 x 720 at 30 fps.
35x Optical Zoom Lens and Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization
A built-in 35x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-875mm, giving wide-angle to super-telephoto perspectives to suit most shooting situations. Supporting this lens' long-range abilities is built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, which helps to lessen the appearance of camera shake.
3.0" LCD Monitor and Functional Design
The design of the H300 mimics that of a DSLR, providing an easy to hold body for increased stability when working with longer focal lengths. A 3.0" 461k-dot Clear Photo LCD monitor is available for image monitoring and review and features five brightness settings for greater usability in sunlit conditions.
Other Camera Features
Picture Effects help to add increased mood to imagery by altering their appearance to suit your creative direction. Effects include Toy Camera, Pop Color, and Partial Color effects amongst others.
Beauty Effect gives you the ability to enhance subjects' skin tones, smooth the appearance of their skin, remove blemishes and shine, whiten teeth, and more.
iAuto mode intelligently analyzes the scene you are photographing and optimizes camera settings to best render the situation accurately.
Face detection works to improve portraits by emphasizing focus and exposure on the subjects' face.
360° Sweep Panorama allows you to create wide panoramic images in-camera by simply sweeping your camera about the scene.
PlayMemories Home software is included for retrieving images from the camera and organizing them.

    Sony DSC-H300 reviews

    Cyber-shot DSC-H300 Digital Camera (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 35X Have had this camera bout a month. Excellent picture quality, even using telephoto. Does very good in the auto setting, but if you take the time to learn the specialty features, you can get very good special effects. Good solid feel. I do not need the wireless features and am happy not to have had to pay for that. With the supplimental memory card I have never come close to running out of memory. Intend to take this to Costa Rica o n vacation later this year Will put the zoom to good use on orchid &birds.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very simple and easy to use camera. Excellent zoom and reso I bought five cameras for my police department. Now each squad has their own camera for crime scene photos. I like the AA batteries because officers can grab a pack at any 24 hour store in an emergency if theirs are depleted.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great low budget camera Good camera that takes excellent photos for a cheaper budget camera. Not the best in low light scene but still better than high end stock phone cameras. I only wish it could manually focus but the auto focus does a good job.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money This camera looks good, but that is about it. There is no option to disable the automatic preview and it is very slow in saving the image every time you take a picture causing you to miss a lot of once-in-a-lifetime candid moments. I am very disappointed with this camera and I wish that I can return it for a full refund.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This camera would be a great value at twice the price. Using For personal and business. This camera is easy to use and produces very good images. I am more then satisfied with this camera and the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great starter camera I had a basic understanding of the different aspects of photography, and just needed something to practice with. This camera is more than that. Sure it's not as feature packed as a digital SLR, of course not, but it takes really great images and once you learn it, it'll do what you want it to do, for the most part.
