Very poor battery life

DSC-H300 10 September 2016 by notahappychappy (United Kingdom)

Very nice camera spoilt by poor battery life. Packaging on the box boasts of 350 pictures from the set of batteries supplied. I got 41 ! Even when using a fresh set of a well know brand I only got 52 shots. It went back for a refund

Focus has problems...

DSC-H300 24 June 2020 by A Sanchez (USA)

I bought this for myself about 1 month ago, I am not impressed with the camera and wish I would have saved my money. The Focus is not manually adjustable for more effect on shots. It will actually blurr when changing from photo to camera setting. You actually have to cycle power to hopefully get it back in focus but beware if you are trying to use the advertised 35x zoom, because chances are you will blurr and have to restart the camera. Not a fan of no rechargeable battery, it is annoying how little life the batteries that came with the unit had. It didn't even come with an SD card. This is basically a throw away camera. No sport mode to capture actions shots either. The continuous shot mode is extremely slow as well. I recommend looking for something else, the $200 was better going towards a more expensive model from a different maker.

My First Camera

DSC-H300 13 May 2020 by Kooky Creator (USA)

I bought this and am NOT disappointed. It's the first camera I've ever had. I wanted something that could take some great stills of my sculptures and random insects I find as well as record me sculpting and stuff. I LOVE this thing!! It's very lightweight and easy to use and navigate. The images come out amazingly clear and I love toying around with the zooming. I have a lot to learn about using it but I am enjoying the journey!

completely let down

DSC-H300 03 April 2020 by Scotty2727 (United Kingdom)

My girlfriend bought this camera for my birthday as we were going on safari holiday in South Africa - it turned on and worked when I checked it first time. Say before I left I turned it on and it kept turning off after initial start up. I sent away for repair and then repair team sent back. On turning it back on it still wasn’t working. I had to email support team at Sony again and they then said batteries weren’t official batteries and wouldn’t hold charge. These were the original batteries that came with camera. Really poor service and ruined my holiday as I couldn’t take pictures.

Nice camera..

DSC-H300 23 January 2020 by Wildwolfy (United Kingdom)

Wicked Zoom and lenses tracking, anti tremor could be better. As I have camera shake, keep hoping to buy a camera that will take wicked pictures even if it's like I am in a earth quake it's it's freezing and my hands shake cause I am cold. But I can't complain about the quality of the image even the zoom is very nice. For the price it's a good starter camera.

Always shuts off!!!

DSC-H300 02 November 2019 by Rhino12345 (USA)

Extremely mad (had to remove profanity, give me a break). Haven't had it very long and now when I turn it on, it powers off! Batteries are new. Read solutions from other people saying to hit it to get it to work, seriously?! What a waste of money. Thanks

Cost effective package for the casual photographer

DSC-H300 21 October 2019 by Alan 25 (United Kingdom)

I bought this to replace a Canon "point and shoot" which had failed after about 5 years and meets the requirements I have for a camera. I always found the Canon too small to handle easily ("fiddly" would be the best expression) but that is matter of personal taste. Thus the spec was physically larger, better definition and simple to use (ie basically an updated "point and shoot"). This provided a competitive package at the price I was prepared to pay, retained "point and shoot" and gave the advantage of considerably higher definition. One word of warning there is no card sold with this camera and the sales person did not alert me. However the card from the old Canon worked so no problem. Battery life appears to be an issue with this model but I have had no problems and carry 4 additional AA batteries with me in the camera case anyway. Overall I view this as a good package for the casual photographer taking snaps. If you are a professional or a serious amateur you will have your own preferences.

Really poor heavy battery usage

DSC-H300 30 September 2019 by Dads (United Kingdom)

Really felt let down after using this product the picture quality was abysmal and the battery usage terrible. After about 15 photos needed batteries replacing. Not what you would expect from a sony product at all.

Great Camera

DSC-H300 16 September 2019 by Crewcut98 (United Kingdom)

Bought this for a first camera ready for a holiday and really pleased with it, quality of the pictures is excellent and the camera looks the part. I initially got advice from my brother in law on the best first time camera to buy and Sony was a recommendation as a good quality brand. Really pleased I bought this and good price as well.
