Shoot Like a Pro with Powerful Zooming
Florence, Italy. It’s the day before your big sister’s wedding and you’ve got time on your hands. So you grab your HX300 and set off to explore the city.
A full 8 hours later you return to your hotel suffering mild sensory overload. Everywhere you looked there was a shot that simply had to be taken.
The Duomo cathedral was a case in point. You started out shooting wide–angle 24mm to capture the iconic building in all its glory. But then you noticed the details, the ornate carving and stonework, and just had to get up close. Not a problem with 50x optical zoom.
At the wedding the next day your HX300 is just as busy. From across the room it lets you capture beautifully natural, unguarded portraits of the bride and groom. Plus, you’re able to video their opening dance in smooth Full HD.
Thanks to lock–on autofocus you even get a great shot of the bouquet flying through the air. And of your girlfriend catching it. Yikes.
One Lens, Endless Possibilities
From sweeping landscapes to dramatic close–ups, you’ve got all shots covered with a wide–angle 24–1200mm telephoto lens and powerful 50x optical zoom. No matter what catches your eye, zoom in quickly for sharp and clear images in photos and Full HD videos. The Carl Zeiss Vario–Sonnar lens with T* coating cuts glare and reduces distortion, for rich detail and colour even when your subject’s far away.
Capture Rich Detail, Even in Low Light
More detail means better photos and Full HD video. Re–live every smile, birthday or family holiday exactly as you remember it. The sensitive 20.4 megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor cuts out picture noise for precision detail in all your photos and videos, even at dusk or indoors when the lights are dim. Don’t let those memories fade – give them the detail they deserve.
Like a DSLR, But No Changing Lenses
Ready to move on from your point–and–shoot? Move up to a high–performance camera that’s easy to use. The balanced DSLR–style body fits comfortably in your hand for sure shooting. Travel light without the hassle of carrying extra lenses for days out, concerts or safari trips. Even the longest photo sessions are made effortless by the moulded ergonomic grip. Craft each frame with a full range of manual shooting modes and intuitively placed controls – just like you’d expect from a DSLR camera.
Shoot Smooth Full HD Movies
Just touch a button and shoot brilliantly crisp, detailed Full HD video clips. Record in 50p mode and film 50 frames of Full HD (1920x1080) every second for silky–smooth, cinematic action. Optical SteadyShot reduces the effect of any shakiness when shooting handheld so you can pan and zoom quickly on the move without the scene juddering.
Keep Track of the Action
Never let that memorable moment pass you by – no matter how fast it happens. With high–speed autofocus, you can lock–on to quick moving subjects with rapid precision and capture crisp, blur–free images – even at high zoom settings or in dim light where other cameras struggle.
