Features

Easy Zoomer
Shoot tighter, more beautiful pics with the 35x zoom, 20.1MP camera that makes everything easy. Packed with amazing features, it even includes Optical SteadyShot™ that helps minimize blur. Use Easy Mode to simplify the camera’s menu functions, plus add fun or dramatic looks with the built-in Picture Effects. It's as awesome as it is affordable.

Pocket Power
Get amazingly close to your subjects via the 35x optical zoom with the professional Sony lens. Bring all the action right to you and capture it all in glorious detail so you don't miss the moment that matters.

Say Goodbye to Blur
Don't let a not-so-steady hand prevent you from capturing the moment. Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization with Intelligent Active mode compensates for camera shake by countering camera movements in both horizontal and vertical directions. Get sharp, blur-free footage and photos in otherwise unsteady situations, like shooting video while walking or zoomed in.

More Pixels Please
Capture high-resolution images with superb contrast and clarity down to the finest detail thanks to the 20.1MP Super HAD™ CCD image sensor. More pixels means you can enlarge, zoom in and crop your pictures without jeopardizing quality.

Take it Easy
Put your camera in Easy Mode to make taking shots a snap. This handy feature minimizes the layers of options in your menu, taking a lot of the guesswork out of getting the perfect picture.

Effortless Effects
Let your imagination run free with a variety of fascinating in-camera effects for your still images (4 modes), videos (4 modes) and even sweep panoramas (3 modes). Picture Effect makes it quick and easy to find the perfect accent to make your subjects come alive in charming, funny or interesting ways.

Panoramic Photos up to 360°
Use Sweep Panorama mode to get breathtaking panoramic shots of up to 360 degrees. Capture sprawling landscapes and captivating cityscapes by pressing the shutter and sweeping the camera in the desired direction. The camera handles the rest, shooting multiple images at high speeds then seamlessly stitching them together to create one continuous image.

Alkaline batteries? Really?

By 

from Southfield, MI 48033, USA

Comments about Sony Black Cyber Shot 20.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

The camera takes o.k pictures and is pretty straight forward to use, but the fact that it doesn't use a rechargeable battery pack caused me to return it. disappointing

Slow camera

By 

from 28104

Comments about Sony Black Cyber Shot 20.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

I am a camera nut..love taking pictures at all events. My husband bought this camera for me as a surprise. I am so disappointed in this gift. Each shot has slow reaction. Push button and the camera closes for several seconds to get next shot. Reaction time is compounded by the blurry photos focus time is so long. I like a AA battery camera. This one eats batteries and you must carry batteries with you to a birthday party just to take a hour photo shoot.... Features add complications that cause more problems than they are worth...Zoom does work quickly going in and out... Photos are good quality.

Very nice camera

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony Black Cyber Shot 20.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

I bought this for my son for his high school graduation present and am very impressed by the quality of pictures. The only problem I have with it is the finish on the outside of the camera itself is ugly and the camera is somewhat clunky and awkward feeling.

Good camera

By 

from Lake Jackson, TX 77566, USA

Comments about Sony Black Cyber Shot 20.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

I like the camera but find that it lacks some of the versatility of the H50 such as being able to set the focus length, and a sports setting. Auto focus seems to take a long time and not always focused on subject matter. I do like the greater telephoto ability. Generally a good camera but lacking some of the versatility of the H50.

DSCH300 Digital Camera A Winner

By 

from Maricopa, AZ, USA

Comments about Sony Black Cyber Shot 20.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

When my old Sony Mavica no longer would read the discs, I started looking for a new camera. I wanted something that had the same features as the old one and had video capability. I must say this camera is all that and more, it is packed with great features. The HD video was awesome and the mic does not pick up that annoying camera hum while filming. Pictures are clear/sharp and the many setting options (including panorama) will keep you busy for days. The macro zoom takes awesome close ups. I love the fact that you can manually adjust everything (like an SLR), but has auto settings like smile detection, tracking focus and scene settings. Overall, I have been extremely pleased with this camera. The only thing I would say is that the manual does not explain all the features that the camera has, however, you can download the full manual on the website. It does not have a hot shoe for flash attachment, but the built in flash works well. It does have a tripod mounting hole on the bottom and uses (4) AA batteries, so you do not have to wait to charge up before using the camera. This is a great choice for the price!

I started in manual mode and tested flash response

By 

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Sony Black Cyber Shot 20.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

I will be looking at this camera as number one because it reminded me of the time when I actually thought about the photograph I was planning to take. More pictures is just that more review adjustment and excitement instead of more quality and fulfilment. I will be looking at using this 35x with a tripod if the motion of the hand can be overcome how much more so the wind etc. I had taken photos with thought and preparation before so now it is back to basics and fun.
