Very poor battery life

DSC-H300 10/09/2016 by notahappychappy

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

Not so good

DSC-H300 08/05/2019 by Jacko1952

I purchased this camera for use during my upcoming cruise, and was very disappointed. The camera looked good and felt fine when gripped for use, however, it would shut down whilst taking pictures, I thought this could be due to the batteries originally supplied being out of date. Therefore I purchased new batteries hoping to improve the usage. Sadly this did not happen, it still shuts down when in use. I will now consider changing for a more reliable camera

DSC-H300 30/12/2018 by tiller206

Slow to write to the memory card and shooting in continuous mode is very slow - one shot a second - useless for photographing sports or animals. I often use a tripod, so I bought a remote shutter release (following advice on the Sony Community webpage) but it has a different connector, so is not compatible with the camera. I bought an adaptor, but the camera seems to have no facility for remote shutter release.

Done no favours by the retailer

DSC-H300 24/08/2018 by BevH

I have rated neutral because it has taken more effort to set up. The box seal was broken and the camera had clearly been used. I was told to demonstrate it to another customer. I did not get the same favour and still to take a photo with it. I would recommend it as I researched it thoroughly before, but have no basis.

Great Zoom & Takes High Quality Photos

DSC-H300 05/08/2018 by Jbutton

I Got this Camera for my birthday last year to take Pictures of Far away objects which it is able to do unless the objects are extremely far away and very fast moving .However the tripod hole on the bottom of the Camera does allow for more stability when taking pictures or videos of far away objects so I imagine this is possible and the built in the features for optimisation for taking pictures of certain things e.g. pets allows for crisp Photography to be preformed. However the Camera is not rechargable and Requires AA Batteries and eats through them fairly Quick unless you use DuraCell Batteries or Duracelll Ultra Power; they have lasted the longest on my camera allowing me to take around 100 20 mega pixel photos(Not continuously over a few weeks) and around 1 hour of 720 P Video (not continuous) mutiple videos which is very close to what is specified in the manual and requires 4 *AA Battaries and consumes 25% of the Ultra Power Duracell battaries Before the battareries need changing and the battaeries can then be used for lower power drained wireless non recharable devices such as a wireless mouse and keyboard; the powercheck on the battery allows you to check how much power is left in the batteries for the Ultra Batteries. Furthermore the camera has built in smart sense mode which you can select when taking photos and the camera will decide which is the best optimisation for the photos your taking e.g. if your taking a picture of a landscape. Also theres a button which brings out a light for a large flash if your taking a picturtures in the dark.Overall the camera takes high Quality Photos that Im satfied with as long as I focus the lense by holding down lightly the trigger button to focus.

Whit Screen & Turn Offs

DSC-H300 30/07/2018

I bought this to go on a cruise last week. On day 2 the screen was white when the camera turned on. On coming home I read that you can push on the right hand of the screen whilst turning on to prevent this, or give it a tap where it say cybershot, and this could help also. This is supposed to be brand new! It caused undue stress on holiday and I had to revert back to my phone camera to feel confident I was going to get the snap I wanted. Also the battery went very quick, more so when you're turning it on and off every few seconds because of a white screen!!! However I'm not even sure that was the problem. It did give me a battery warning a couple of times but generally the camera would turn on and off straight, or turn off as I take a photo (which it hadn't taken). I have now read that the batteries you get with it, and the extra ones I bought (ensuring I bought the same type) generally aren't good enough and you need a higher quality rechargeable NiMH battery. I don't remember reading this in the very limited info you get with the camera. And even if/when I pay out for these I'm not sure this will sort the problem anyway, for the reasons just stated. I bought the camera via the internet, but from Curry's, so I'd still expect a genuine, problem-free product. And another thing, I was out at sea, so I couldn't get online to look up problems, why doesn't Sony include the basics in a little brochure? Or as you order, ask if a paper version is required? The one you can get online is just far too big to print off. So at the moment I feel like I've encountered problems I shouldn't, and right from the off. They will hopefully be resolved easily, but they left a negative impact on the cruise I bought the camera for (I only came back yesterday). So not (yet) impressed.

DSC-H300 16/05/2018 by Blod

Still working out the menu options and how best to use them. For the price it has many features and overall seems to be a good camera. The only glaring drawback I can find is that it is power hungry and eats batteries. It's a pity there's no plug in recharge system. The rechargeable batteries I tried will not make it even switch on (yes, they're the correct ones, fully charged) so I can only use disposable alkaline batteries.

The 4 AAA batteries only last for 29 photos. The auto focusing was so slow, which I couldn't find a way to use manually, any wildlife I tried to photograph had gone before the camera was ready. My old Sony DSC-HX100 was brilliant. This camera was a massive disappointment.

DSC-H300 04/01/2018 by Telephone Bob

Very good camera an upgrade on my previous one .There are one or two programmes that take a bit of getting used too. Main problem is that it appears to use batteries at a very fast rate . Had not taken many shots when batteries needed replacing. This could be me getting used to the camera but I don't think so.

DSC-H300 12/12/2017 by Deadearnest

Purchased specifically for a series of video shoots and it has let us down badly - every few seconds the video image will go out of focus - we took it back to where we bought it and they reset some of the settings but still it goes out of focus for no real reason. In low light, it's awful, so if you want photos, it's good, but otherwise, sadly, a waste of money
