Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W300

 

Sony's 13.6-megapixel Cyber-shot DSC-W300 takes great daytime pics.

Attractive, compact design. Fast performance. Vivid and sharp daylight shots.

Inconsistently exposed flash pictures. Tiny menu dial can be tough to operate. Menu system is a bit confusing.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W300 Review

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W300 is the top of the range model in Sony's W-series of premium compact digital cameras. The W300 is a new 13.6 megapixel model with a scratch-resistant titanium coating, 3x optical zoom lens equivalent to 35-105mm, and a large...

As ever with Sony's Cyber-shot range, the DSC-W300 is as much about style as substance. The metal build quality suggests this is a camera that you'll still be using a few years down the line, a feeling backed up by that whopping 13+ megapixel ...

Digital cameras don't seem to be getting smaller anymore; in fact compact and ultracompact point-and-shoot digicams appear to have reached the practical limits of miniaturization. However, resolution (more megapixels) and popular features like Face...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W300

 

A compact camera with a big sensor.

Small and well built, easy to use, manual aperture and shutter control, good low-light performance

Slow and imprecise zoom control, sometimes hard to focus, battery life is a little short, manual aperture only has three stops to select from

The DSC-W300's pictures are clear, vibrant and free of noise and distortion. It performs well in almost any situation and is well-built to handle the rigours of travel.

The W300 is a svelte and stylish snapper from Sony; its titanium, scratch resistant bodywork has a good heft (though it's a pity the scratch resistant coating did not extend to the screen, which arrived already scratched from previous reviewers), as...

Overall then, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W300 provides a robust and scratch free snapping environment thanks to its superb build. Handing is on the twee side as the camera controls are small but you do get an optical viewfinder, always a bonus in these...
