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.

I am considering purchasing for night shots of northern lights will this work for that if so how. and what is the temperature rating could it operate in below zeros (Fahrenheit)
Asked by: Lisa
According to Sony, you may not be able to shoot below 41F depending on the type of AA batteries used in the camera. Based on your needs, you would be better off with an interchangeable lens camera which will be better in low light and will perform at a lower ambient temperature. One such option is the Sony Alpha a6100 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only) along with a lens such as the Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens for Sony E BH #SI1614S. https://bhpho.to/3pcKvpd https://bhpho.to/2UbTAAg

does this camera need batteries or do you have to charge it?
Asked by: Sofia
It comes with a set of non-rechargeable AA batteries. You can use regular AA or get some rechargeable AA batteries. It also has an internal rechargeable battery for maintaining the date and time and other settings regardless of whether the power is on or off. This rechargeable battery is continually charged as long as you are using the Camera. This is a link for rechargeable batteries and non-rechargeable, https://bhpho.to/31lrvL5

question

Is there a way to filter so only one color takes on the photo? For example, I just want the pink (or yellow or blue) flowers to have color and the rest of the photo to stay black and white. Thanks!
Asked by: Donna C.
Yes u can actually, you don't have to do everything the last person suggested. There is an option on the actual camera to have certain colors pop such as red and blue, and the rest of the photo would be black and white where the areas w the pop of color wasnt. I will check which setting it was and get back to you ( this is during the covid19 stay at home order so it will be another week before I can get my camera back ). Thanks! Hope it helps
