Sony Cyber-Shot H300 Digital Camera with 35x Optical Zoom (Black)

The Sony DSC-H300 features a DSLR-style body that allows for comfortable handling. It comes equipped with a powerful 20.1MP Super HAD sensor that delivers beautifully detailed images. The camera’s amazing 35x optical zoom lets you capture images from greater distances. Its convenient-to-use Easy Mode allows for a simplified menu that reduces the clutter of a layered menu. Apart from the Easy Mode, the Sony Cyber-Shot H300 has four image and video modes, as well as three sweep panorama modes.

Large 20.1MP Super HAD CCD Image Sensor

The camera’s 20.1 MP Super HAD CCD sensor produces true detail in every image. It helps capture rich, detailed, colorful images that maintain their high quality even when enlarged or cropped. This means you can blow up your prints to massive scale without pixelating.

35x Optical Zoom

The Sony Cyber-Shot H300 offers 35x optical zoom that ensures no shots are out of reach. Easily get close to your subject within a scene to shoot brilliantly detailed images across the full focal range. This makes it most suitable for outdoor photography or any situation when you want a close up shot from a distance.

SteadyShot Image Stabilization

Built-in SteadyShot Image Stabilization compensates for minor hand motions during handheld shooting that can lead to image blurring and distortion. It ensures brilliant photographic results even in challenging low-light conditions. You can quickly switch to SteadyShot Active mode for sharp, blur-free movie shooting. This is a great feature when shooting for moving vehicles like car, boat, or any other moving platform. SteadyShot also helps to minimize blur when capturing long exposures in low light.

High-Quality HD Movies

Sony Cyber-Shot H300 Digital Camera can record high-quality 720p HD movies with minimal noise distortion even in darker environments. Simply point the camera at your subject and start filming. You can switch seamlessly between stills and video recording depending on your need.

360-Degree Panoramic Shots

Want to capture a full 360-degree view then Cyber-Shot H300 has you covered. Simply press the dedicated Sweep Panorama button and sweep the camera from side to side to get a full 360-degree picture. The camera automatically stitches the frames together to give you a full panoramic image. This is a great feature for capturing creating comprehensive images of cityscapes.

Picture Effect for Creativity

The built-in Picture Effect technology, including four still effects, three panoramic effects and four movie effects lets you unleash your photographic skills and creativity in every shot. You can preview each effect in real-time before you finalizing your perfect shot.
