4.0 out of 5 stars Ok, But Do Not Confuse DSCH300/B with the Sony DSC-HX300, March 14, 2014
This review is from: Sony DSCH300/B Digital Camera (Black) (Electronics)
The DSC-HX300 is a superb camera, but there is a danger that many here would confuse DSCH300/B with the Sony DSC-HX300/B. These are not one and the same. DSC-HX300 belongs to a totally different series than DSCH300. What is more, DSCH300 seems to be one of the poorer products put by Sony on the market and there are complaints from all over about it.

*** Though it looks like a clone of DSC-HX300, that is a wrong impression
*** DSC-HX300 offers 50x optical magnification while this one offers only 35x optical magnification
*** Technical support is non-existent for this product

Good Things:
*** The camera is easy to use
*** Highly intuitive
*** The flash has to be turned on manually, which means you can conserve battery life
*** 35x optical magnification is something significant

I recommend that the potential buyer consider Sony DSC-HX300. I have been using it now for one year and have only good things to say about it.

Of course, if you are on a budget, then this camera is just fine.

Cindy says:
does this camera need AA batteries or can the battery be charged?

This camera cannot use AA batteries. Rather, it has a rectangular 'rechargeable' battery of its own. Spare batteries are available for purchase.
