Features

20x optical zoom plus 40x Clear Image Digital Zoom
Get up close with 20x optical zoom plus 40x Clear Image digital zoom. Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in unsharp images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos.

18.2 Megapixel Back-illuminated Exmor® R CMOS Image Sensor
This camera features a 18.2 megapixel Exmor® R CMOS image sensor that brings out the power of the camera’s Sony® G lens to deliver extremely fast speed, high resolution, and stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain

WiFi sharing to upload photos and videos
WiFi lets you quickly upload photos and videos to social media sites through your WiFi smartphone or tablet, back them up on a network-connected PC, or view them on a large screen TV.

AVCHD™ 1080/60i video
Record crystal clear movies at the highest resolution available with capabilities for 60i in 1080 AVCHD™ video.¹ This provides stunning, fast motion video with less distortion for playback on your HD TV.2 With dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both at the same time.

Shoot nearly all day with improved battery life
Take up to 500 photos per charge for high-volume photography on-the-go.

Optical SteadyShot™ image Stabilization with 2-way Active Mode
Sony's Active Mode image stabilization gives you the freedom to shoot movies even while walking or running³. 2-way Active Mode corrects for both vertical and horizontal motion.

Enhanced Superior Auto
Enhanced Superior Auto supports scenes with dynamic motion to provide beautiful results even in dark situations. The result is clearer images with less blur.

Capture the decisive moment with up to 10fps
Capture full 16.2 megapixel resolution images at up to 10 frames per second, helping to ensure that the decisive moment is captured such as the soccer ball flying into the goal. In addition, a mechanical shutter helps reduce distortion when continuously

Creative shooting with Picture and Beauty effects
Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. Beauty Effects allows edits to skin tones, skin smoothing, shine removal, eye widening, and teeth whitening. Beauty Effects can be combined to further enhance the image

Intelligent Sweep Panorama™ mode up to 360°
Intelligent Sweep Panorama mode takes our Sweep Panorama function to the next level with the addition of motion compensation. Even when subjects are moving in the foreground of your landscape, these cameras can detect faces and moving subjects, intelligently stitching different widths together to minimize distortion. Simply press the shutter button and sweep the camera in the desired direction and the camera continuously shoots at a high speed, then seamlessly stitches the images together with automatic position adjustment to create one stunning panoramic image. Available in wide and up to 360° full circle, the camera can take a variety of panoramic shots.

Love my very hi tech camera & it's so small & easy

By Remzy

from New England

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot 18.2 Megapixel Black Digital Camera:

This is a great camera and price point if want something that is very capable with an array of features that's relatively easy to use even for an ol foagy like me. I love how small it is, fits rite in front pocket of pants has amazing zoom. I love that it's so small yet does so much. I rated it at 5 stars however the 1 drawback or thing that could b improved is that outside on sunny days it can b difficult to view LCD screen. There is no view port only the LCD. There may b an adjustment for brightness on the camera actually I'm sure Sony has put that on this great cam but I'm brand new to it and havnt found that setting yet not have I read entire manual yet. But ya I love this cam it does everything I want plus more things I can't wait to learn how to use. Basic operation rite out of the box is very simple with no reading at all u can start rite out and take pics and vids and has self explanatory directions that pop up on screen for each setting. No problems with it so far and I'm glad I chose it and would buy it again for sure. It does things that other cams 10 times it size does. Who wants to drag around some large SLR cam on vacation when u can have all this rite in your pocket or carrying case u can strap on. Love it and the trusted Sony brand. Wow did u really read all that?

Great point/shoot for novices

By brjoce

from Starkville, MS

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot 18.2 Megapixel Black Digital Camera:

This camera is great, it's portable, fairly fast, and with great images using auto; this is the camera for people who just don't want to think about the image (that's what a Nex or dSLR are for), they just want a good image. The wifi feature, connected to your phone for remote pics, is a great feature. My wife didn't think she would care about that feature, turns out it's her favorite feature. The zoom is great for distance images, and the quality of the images is quite nice, with great color and resolution. The only knock on the camera, is the overall speed of the camera; the camera doesn't process images as fast as she would like, but this is a minor complaint on an otherwise great camera.

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot 18.2 Megapixel Black Digital Camera:

While the features on the camera (the high detail of the pictures, and the long zoom) make this a great option for a camera, it's the ease of use that puts it over the top. The menus are very straight-forward and tell you what each option means, rather than just showing an indecipherable icon. This is a nearly-perfect camera (the lack of a view-finder makes it difficult to review photos on-screen when you're outside), and I'd strongly suggest it for anyone looking for a powerful, portable, powerhouse of a camera.

DSC-WX300 Review

By Bagadonuts

from Chicago, Il.

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot 18.2 Megapixel Black Digital Camera:

Bought the WX-300 for an upcoming Stones concert. Because cameras are a no-no at this venue and because I'm anticipating being a good 20-30 yards away from the stage I wanted a camera that is easily concealed, had a strong zoom lens and could take quality photos in a low-light environment. The WX hit the mark on all three requirements and more. The day I brought it home I pulled up the user manual on Sony's website www.sony.com and pulled the camera out of it's box. I was immediately impressed by the attention to detail as well as what felt like the perfect weight of a camera in my hand. I installed the battery which had been pre-charged, turned it on and started snapping pictures of random items around my home. The resulting photos were nothing short of amazing. Even without reading a single instruction I found that the WX was extraordinarily intuitive and the "Superior Auto" setting was everything that Sony promised. Over the past few days I've done my best to take pictures in every conceivable lighting situation both close up and using the 20X(40X digital) zoom. The results are truly amazing. I probably over researched this purchase looking at the best brand names and reputations and kept coming back to the WX300. I couldn't be happier and sincerely believe that this camera is the best of its type regardless of price. Thank you Sony, you've done it again!
