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.

question

how can i get rid of the grainy-ness from my videos using this camera. it says its 720HD capable but thats not what im getting. Are there some settings i need to change? thanx in advance
Asked by: Anonymous
720p is simply a resolution (indicating the video has a resolution of 1280720), and would have no bearing on you obtaining grainy video, or video with digital noise. Graininess, or digital noise, is typically caused either by recording in low-lighting, using a high ISO setting, or both, and is typically seen in the shadow areas of the frame. The only real ways to reduce digital noise is to use a lower ISO setting and to either shoot in bright lighting or add light to the scene (which is one of the reasons Hollywood and other movie companies use so much lighting gear when shooting movies, both at night and in daytime - lighting is an important part of video recording, controlling dynamic range, contrast, and assisting in reducing digital noise/grain). There are some ways to slightly improve video recordings using post-processing software such as Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere Elements, though grain/noise may not be completely eliminated due to its random nature. The best I can recommend before/during shooting would be use the lowest ISO possible for the light levels in your scene, use external lighting to lighten the shadows in your scene, and shoot with reduced contrast. During post-production, you may increase contrast and use the editing tools to attempt to further improve the video and/or attempt to further reduce any grain/noise. You may also wish to view the software listed at https://<a href= http://www.neatvideo.com/ target= _blank >www.neatvideo.com/</a> The above plug-in works with the software I previously mentioned, and they list both examples and a free demo on their website.

question

I have a Sony DSC-H300(black) and was wondering where the memory card goes in the camera and what is a card reader and do I need one?
Asked by: Jennifer J.
On this model, the memory card slot will be located inside the battery compartment. Now, a card reader will be used to transfer images from the memory card to a computer. It is another options if your computer does not have an SD card slot built in.
