Live View-the live view system that sony uses is probably the best live view system on the market as it does not pause to capture the image. I love the live view, it saves me a ton of time using manual settings messing with aperature and exposure. My girlfriend has a 200 and spends a lot of time playing with settings and taking test photos. The live view is also very nice if you have glasses as well.
Image stabilization in camera-This is very nice because you don't have to shell out big bucks for image stablized lenses like with canon and nikon.
Uses Minolta Maxxim lenses-the ability to use Minolta Maxxim lenses means there is a ton of affordable used glass out there, many that are unchanged from the current sony offerings.
Takes good images-The 300 has a nice balance of speed and image quality.
Flip up/flip down lcd- Awesome feature that is usually only found in higher end cameras.
High noise at ISO over 400- I won't shoot at ISO over 400 because of the noise.
Smart teleconverter-This feature is a neat idea but is nothing more than digital zoom and degrades the image so you really can't crop afterwards if you use this feature.
Lcd screen sticks out-The screen sticks out quite a bit when folded in, not a huge deal but will smudge from your face if you use the OFV, I would suggest the lcd screen protector made by sony so you don't scratch the screen.
Overall the Sony 300 is a great camera for the money, you get a lot more for less money then you would with some other manufacturers offerings.
Anyone buying this model for that feature will be sorely disappointed at this unbelievable ripoff!!!
I even crosschecked the serial number to check for a switch - but it IS the "GOLD" model and it IS NOTHING BUT THE PLAIN STANDARD SILVER FINISH!
Sony makes a great camera and I'm keeping this camera purely because it IS a super unit. Just don't get suckered into the GOLD TONE CON.
NO ONE WOULD EVER DESCRIBE THIS MODEL/MY NEW CAMERA AS ANYTHING OTHER THAN SILVER...
