From the Manufacturer

Sony make . believe

See details you never knew existed with an astoundingly clear 50x zoom, making close-ups more interesting. Imagine tight shots of the lead singer in concert, or the expression on your favorite athlete’s face at the game. Best of all, the action stays clear and stable even when you’re fully zoomed.
50x optical zoom plus 100x Clear Image
Digital Zoom
Optical SteadyShot® image stabilization with 3-way active mode³ 20.4MP images and
high speed AF even
in low-light

Super 50x zoom
Zoom in incredibly close for awesome sports, travel, and wildlife photos. The HX300 boasts 50x optical zoom plus 100x Clear Image Digital Zoom technology to bring you near enough to capture elated smiles on the sports field. A powerful processor reduces graininess for crisper, higher-quality close-ups.
Say goodbye to blur
Optical SteadyShot® image stabilization reduces shake and blur by countering camera movements in both horizontal and vertical directions.³ Active 3-Way stabilization adds digital rolling control that counters clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation, resulting in more stable videos even at long focal lengths.
Pixel Power
With a 20.4-megapixel Exmor® R CMOS sensor, capture high-resolution images that take full advantage of the camera's high quality Carl Zeiss® lens. Advanced processing technology reduces noise and graininess for incredibly crisp, clear images - even in challenging low-light conditions.
Amazing HD movies
Record crystal-clear movies at the highest resolution available with Full HD 1080/60p video capture1. Stunning, fast motion video with reduced distortion looks great when played back on your HDTV2. Notice a perfect photo opp while shooting video? With dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both at the same time.
Overhead of the crowd
The tiltable 3" LCD makes it easy to reach above a crowd to take great shots with an interesting overhead perspective. Since you can angle the LCD so it's facing towards you, you'll be able to frame the shot exactly as you want. It's also convenient for shooting subjects situated at a low angle - snapping photos of children at their eye level.
Never miss the moment
Capture full 20.4 megapixel resolution images at up to 10 frames per second, helping to ensure that the decisive moment is captured such as the soccer ball flying into the goal. In addition, a mechanical shutter helps reduce distortion when continuously shooting moving subjects.

Product description and full feature list
Explore the full range of features and options below.

Intelligent Sweep Panorama™
mode-up to 360°

Intelligent Sweep Panorama mode takes our Sweep Panorama function to the next level with the addition of motion compensation. Even when subjects are moving in the foreground of your landscape, these cameras can detect faces and moving subjects, intelligently stitching different widths together to minimize distortion. Simply press the shutter button and sweep the camera in the desired direction and the camera continuously shoots at a high speed, then seamlessly stitches the images together with automatic position adjustment to create one stunning panoramic image. Available in wide and up to 360° full circle, the camera can take a variety of panoramic shots.

Picture Effects
Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. There are nine different effects such as partial color to make your focal point stand out, or watercolor which looks like a painting.

Enhanced Superior Auto
Enhanced Superior Auto supports scenes with dynamic motion to provide beautiful results even in dark situations. The result is clearer images with less blur.

Advanced Flash illuminates distant subjects for beautifully lit photos
Advanced Flash allows you to shoot bright, beautifully lit photos even when zooming. The built in flash reaches farther resulting in brighter subjects in dimly lit rooms or outdoors in the evening.

Size: Camera Verified Purchase
Over the years as a serious amateur photographer I have owned and used extensively Nikon and Hasselblad film cameras and lenses and when digital cameras arrived I began with the Nikon Coolpix 900 and 950, then DSLR's including the Canon EOS 10D, and today I am using a Canon 5D Mark II equipped with L lenses (Canon's premium glass). The Sony HX300 is my first super zoom camera, and as such I spent several hours after receiving the camera from Amazon on March 14 thoroughly reading and studying both the Sony pdf manual and the Sony User's Guide in html format. This was time well spent as there are many useful features on the HX300 that are not found even on my much more expensive Canon 5D Mark II. During this study with both manuals, I tried each feature in the quiet of my living room making sure I understood exactly how the feature worked and what it did. Only then did I set out to explore the performance of the Sony HX300 under "real world" conditions and to compare it to the Canon 5D Mark II under controlled conditions.

The two most import things about any camera are its image quality and its performance in actual shooting sessions. Image quality is, of course, a combination of many things including the camera's ability to resolve detail, to properly expose scenes shot under a variety of lighting conditions, color quality, absence of both chroma and luminance noise, etc. Performance is how responsive the camera is and includes such items as how quickly the camera is ready to take a picture after being turned on, the time delay between shots in single shot mode, the ability of the camera's autofocus to work quickly and accurately without "searching", and certainly in the case of a super zoom camera its ability to smoothly and rapidly zoom through its entire set of focal lengths.

A couple of things about me, and what I needed in a camera. First of all, while I have some basic understandings of how these kinds of cameras work, I am not a professional techie guy, and I usually have to look up every spec I read and usually end up not getting it entirely. I did do a lot of research, but the Camera Spec Snobs in some of the review sites just go to an extreme that will never, ever matter to me. Second, this camera was a replacement for my old bridge camera, a Sony DSC H-5 (12X optical, 7.2 megapixel). That camera served me well over the past 6 years, after thousands upon thousands of images. I bring this up because there have been a mountain of improvements on all technological fronts since then, which has resulted in an entirely and spectacularly different photographic experience I am having with this new camera after only a few days, and may explain my giddy five star love-fest I am having with this thing! I use my camera for everything from artistic photos to nature photography to family events, so I want a camera that shoots great, better than average pictures in a variety of circumstances over a specialized camera that takes outstanding pictures in limited circumstances.

Unlike many other reviewers (but most probably like the majority of shoppers), I do not own several high end cameras and am therefore not going to be comparing this one to my other high end camera that I bought last year. So, in my comparison, all I can say is if you have an older bridge camera that seems to be losing a bit of steam and you are looking to replace it, look no further. You don't have to spend hours fretting over this spec and that, when you get this camera and take a few pictures you will feel like you did as a kid when you replaced that brownie camera with your first 35mm!

Size: Camera Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Despite being a professional photographer I have a variety of point-and-shoot pocket cameras for family events, vacations and just having fun and I will let you know right now nothing included in my review will be techie, just real-life things that can help you decide if this is the camera for you.

Recently, adding to my collection of little pocket cameras, I acquired an Olympus XZ-1 in an attempt to get better results than I've previously experienced with low-end pocket cameras and it does an admirable job while still remaining portable. The DSC-HX300 is not pocketable, it is what is known as a "bridge" camera. I've generally thought of bridge cameras (SLR-like with non-detachable zoom lenses) as a compromise ... almost as large and heavy as a real DSLR, lacking the versatility of swappable lenses, tiny sensor, mediocre lens and much too automated. But I do realize that all consumer-grade cameras just keep getting better and better and if you read on you will hopefully get some insight about the capabilities of the Sony HX300 and how it compares to state-of-the-art.

This is the first Sony-brand camera that I've owned, although I did early development work with them regarding the original Mavica digital cameras. I respect their ability to design and manufacturer most of their components in-house, especially after they acquired the photographic experience of Konica/Minolta. The DSC HX300 can safely be called a "premium" bridge camera as it reigns with only a couple of other similar cameras in worthwhile features.

As I said, I'll avoid getting techie in this review; there are well-established resources for that. Nor will I republish the specs which can be found at the Sony website or compare a consumer-grade camera with a $5000 professional DSLR.
