From the manufacturer
Every picture a revelation
The Cyber-shot H300, with a powerful 35x optical zoom, brings your subject to you for precise pictures. A 20.1 MP sensor, HD video and creative features, let you capture detailed images and movies with ease.
35x optical zoom
With the built-in 35x optical zoom – one of the most powerful zoom lenses for Cybershot – no image will ever be out of reach. You’ll be able to get close to the action with ease, shooting detailed images across the full focal length.
Massive 20.1 MP Super HAD CCD Image Sensor
See the true detail in every image, thanks to a 20.1 MP Super HAD CCD sensor. You’ll be able to capture rich, detailed, colourful images that maintain their high quality even when reproduced as A4 prints or bigger.
360 degree panoramic shots
Get the full picture with 360 degree Sweep Panorama. Simply press the dedicated button, sweep the camera from side to side and then watch as it automatically stitches the frames together to create one full panoramic image.
Get creative with Picture Effect
The built-in Picture Effect technology – including four still effects, three panoramic effects and four movie effects – lets you breathe life into every shot. You can preview each effect in real-time before you finalise your work of art.
Most on-body flashes still struggle to deliver balanced, noise-free images in low-light conditions. That’s where Advanced Flash differs – it automatically boosts the camera’s sensitivity settings, so you’ll be able to take bright, clear pictures with the same amount of light.
SteadyShot image stabilisation
SteadyShot technology keeps your image stable even when your hands aren’t. By compensating for the minor hand motions that can cause blurring and distortion, SteadyShot ensures high quality photographic results even in challenging low-light conditions. Switch to SteadyShot Active mode for sharp, blur-free movie shooting.
High-quality HD movies (720 p)
With a Super HAD CCD sensor, you’ll be able to shoot high-quality HD movies (720 p) with minimal noise distortion even in dark environments. Just point the camera at your subject and start filming.

Update Jan 2018. Had this awhile now. Absolutely NO problems with battery life, still on originals. No problem with focus either. Used max zoom on wildcat and got sharp pics. Yes a little slow to focus, but 2 sec at most. Could be a limitation for some. Manual is not very good so time needs to spent familiarizing yourself with the controls. That is all the negative stuff I could find. Still a real bargain.

Lasts a long time (I use Energizer Rechargeable AAs)
Case (which you can buy with camera) is handy
Batteries supplied don't last long (the Sony ones)
After you've taken the photo and it shows it back to you for a small period of time, it takes twice as long if you use Continuous Shooting.
CONS by other reviewers that don't actually matter:
No viewfinder (There's a massive LCD screen to look at, why need a viewfinder?)
Sony Lens, not Carl Zeiss (The Sony Lens produce perfectly fine photos)
Eats batteries/Battery life isn't long (Use the Energizer Rechargeable AAs, they last a lot of time.)
Basically, to enjoy this camera, use these tips:
Order it with the LCS-U11 carrying case, it helps a lot.
Set the shooting setting to Single Shooting
Attach the strap and the lens cap onto the camera
Shoot at 16:9 2M, it's perfectly fine and with a 16GB memory card you can take 14,167 photos, but with the highest setting (4:3 20M) you can only take 1,966.
Shoot using Program Auto, it's simply the most customizable.
I've attached some photos.
However, you may see those 3 stars and wonder, "Why has this reviewer only given the product 3 stars?" Well, today, it broke. I have no idea how or why, but it did and I really need it very soon as I'm doing bird and mammal surveys in the north of Scotland. It would appear that the lens has become misaligned, as the top two corners are now rounded off, almost as if I was looking through a tunnel. Before this happened, the battery decided that it wasn't working, despite displaying 2 full bars on the LCD display. Then I turned it on and the camera did that typical 'broken camera' thing where it sort of makes noises but isn't on, and then won't let you turn it on for a while. When it finally did turn on, the screen was as described above, and it turns itself off after 10 seconds.
All that said, I've asked for a replacement as I think/hope this is just a problem with the particular camera that I have. It has served me very well for the 3 weeks that I've had it so I see no reason as to why I shouldn't get the same model. Fingers crossed this one doesn't get tunnel vision as well...
High Build Quality.
Very easy to use if you are familiar with digital camera menus.
Picture quality also very good.
The sony pc software is not so brilliant but you can find so many alternatives including some great free software so no problem really!
Several things to note...
The optical image stability feature is fully automatic and there is no menu option to switch on or off.
Macro switches itself on when needed.
There is a white balance setting to be used with flash and I think it gives great results!
Sometimes shooting conditions require the camera to spend a little bit more time auto-focusing. I don't particularly find this onerous myself. Most camera auto-focusing systems that I have used have occasional minor issues.
You should try out the focus tracking system if you buy the camera. I think it's great for taking photos of my cat as she won't stay still.
I use Panasonic Eneloop NiMh rechargeable 2500mAh AA batteries and get a lot of usage before I need to recharge. I found standard alkaline didn’t last as long as I would like.
So all in all I would recommend this camera. I look forward to using it in the coming year as opportunity presents itself.
