The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H300 Digital Camera is a point-and-shoot camera featuring a 20.1 MP 1/2.3" Super HAD CCD image sensor producing high resolution still images and HD 720p video. The sensor is benefited by the inclusion of a long-reaching 35x optical zoom lens, giving a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-875mm. For shooting in low light conditions and when using at greater zoom magnifications, Optical SteadyShot image stabilization is available countering the effects of camera shake.
For monitoring and playback of images and navigating the menu system, a 3.0" 461k-dot Clear Photo LCD is available offering five brightness steps for viewing in bright conditions. There are a host of camera effects to further refine the appearance of your images including Picture Effects, Beauty Effects, Face Detection, 360° Sweep Panorama, and iAuto mode. The H300 is powered by 4 AA batteries.
20.1MP Super HAD CCD Sensor
The H300 integrates a 20.1 megapixel 1/2.3" Super HAD CCD image sensor to produce high resolution images that benefits from the 35x optical zoom lens and Optical SteadyShot image stabilization. The combination of these technologies renders sharp, detailed images suitable for both printing and sharing online. The sensor enables HD video recording up to 1280 x 720 at 30 fps.
35x Optical Zoom Lens and Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization
A built-in 35x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-875mm, giving wide angle to super telephoto perspectives suiting most shooting situations. Supporting this lens' long-range abilities is built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, lessening the appearance of camera shake.
3.0" LCD Monitor and Functional Design
The design of the H300 mimics that of a DSLR, providing an easy to hold body for increased stability when working with longer focal lengths. A 3.0" 461k-dot Clear Photo LCD monitor is available for image monitoring and review and features five brightness settings for greater usability in sunlit conditions.
