Worst camera !
Date:March 29, 2013
Pros: 50x zoom, New optical stabilization, Filter tread.
Cons: Very slow aperture at telephoto end. Taken away some features ...
Very slow aperture at telephoto end. Taken away some features such as viewfinder sensor, DC current input . Only 2 megapixel boosted, slower zooming speed as compared to Hx200v, same 1/3 sensor, image quality and sharpness is lost at telephoto end, same old features.
I was expecting more but this time it is worst than ever.

This is an amazing camera
Date:March 26, 2013
Pros: Incredible effects, easy to use
Cons: only zoom at 50x,100x and 200x lacking
I got this a few days ago. It is my 5th Sony. It is very easy to use and has incredible features. I purchased the Canon Cybershot 50X 2 weeks ago to compare the 2. Without a doubt the Sony is much more user friendly. Similar features,panorama and effects. The Sony has more and they are easier to use. The zoom goes digital as well up to 200X. I thought it was listed 50X opt and 100X dig, so good news. Certainly larger and heavier than Canon. Have to be careful with shutter button, it is very light touch and you may take a photo while trying to focus by mistake. The zoom not as fast as other Sonys. Now for the sad news, the zoom ( image ) on the Canon is better at the higher magnifications, 50x, 100x and 200x. Regular shots,Sony is excellent. I bought this to take shots of birds and the focus and clarity is just not there.Macro, flawless. Do not know what to do, thought I was a Sony customer for life. I do use a Canon T4i for portraits but wanted a quick 50X for the wildlife. I am shooting the 2 side by side hoping the Sony will win.

Review 3 for DSC-HX300/B
Its Ok duds :)
Date:March 10, 2013
Cons: it price vs other D-SLR bridge camera and Low-speed movie capture In contrast to 400 frames per second or more.
to tell you the truth with this price and this specific this camera is great and exactly other competitors like nikon p520 and Canon Powershot Sx50 and Fujifilm Finepix SL1000 have same sencor size , but Sony is taking advantage of Exmor R sensor on this camera . by and large its OK for a D-SLR bridge camera
Sony's motto of "Make.Believe" is one that I have been living with for a few years now.
I had the HX100v for a year, and broke it, sadly, but in 1 year, I created so much content that I can enjoy. From hundreds of cloud shots, parades, family moments, monuments and many concert moments from my favorite artists.
The HX300, with the 50X zoom will only make my artistic goals even more ambitious. Throw in cool artistic features (Toy Camera, miniature), 360 degree panorama, 1080p 60fps video recording, and the small convenient size, I am overwhelmed with the amount of possibilities that can be created with this camera.
Now that I have every single feature I want in a camera, all I have to do is wait for the release!

Review 5 for DSC-HX300/B
make it the best cyber-shot ever
Date:February 27, 2013
Pros: amazing zooming capability, brilliant body style, improved lens quality
Cons: small sensor, lack of 3D shooting
why still the image sensor is so small, replace it with that of RX100. several features were excluded from its previous model ie dsc hx200v, i want every feature to be included in it.if this is done it would be the best combination of dslr and point-shoot camera in the market - for professionals as well as beginners.

Review 6 for DSC-HX300/B
Same Small Sensor, Why Sony ? Backwards !
Date:February 25, 2013
Pros: More Zoom Range
Cons: Same Size Sensor as HX200V ?
Sony, I have the HX200V & RX100, The HX300 would be perfect if you would just put the 1" sensor from the RX100 in this camera, instead you cram more pixles into the same small size 1/2.3 sensor, thereby increaseing Noise & degrading photo quality. Photos viewed @ 100% from this cameras sensor can not match the quality of photos from an rx100. It seems you should seriously consider a larger sensor even if the price were $800+USD it would be worth it for the photo quality, this post has been repeted numrous times by many over @ the HX200V forum. Evidently noone is listening to the consumer.
