Sony Cyber-shot HX300

20 Reasons why Sony Cyber-shot HX300 is better

than the average

1.Measurably more megapixels (photo)
20.4MPvs 16.7MP (the average)
vs 108MP (best: Panono Camera)
2.Considerably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
10fpsvs 7fps (the average)
vs 60fps (best: Nikon DL18-50)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
3.Vastly higher maximum light sensitivity
51200ISOvs 19130ISO (the average)
vs 3280000ISO (best: Nikon D5)
With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
4.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (53% don't have it)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
5.A lot higher pixel density
490ppivs 360ppi (the average)
vs 544ppi (best: Sony A7)
6.Has a built-in HDR mode
Yesvs No (74% don't have it)
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
93.2mmvs 95.2mm (the average)
vs 26.2mm (best: DxO One)
8.A little bit more battery power
1240mAhvs 1212mAh (the average)
vs 4360mAh (best: Samsung Galaxy NX Mirrorless)
9.Considerably higher resolution
720x1,280pxvs 875x609px (the average)
vs 1,517x1,011px (best: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2K + Lumix G Vario 14-42mm/ F3.5-5.6 ASPH./ MEGA O.I.S)
10.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (54% don't have it)
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
11.Can create panoramas in-camera
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
12.A bit bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
13.Supports AVCHD format
Yesvs No (75% don't have it)
AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.
14.Has a BSI sensor
Yesvs No (81% don't have it)
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
15.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
16.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
17.Sizably greater zoom range
50xvs 12x (the average)
vs 83.3x (best: Nikon Coolpix P900)
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
18.Amply wider aperture at minimum focal length
2.8vs 3.0 (the average)
vs 1 (best: Leica Q (Typ 116))
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
19.Significantly longer maximum focal length
1200mmvs 273mm (the average)
vs 2000mm (best: Nikon Coolpix P900)
A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
20.Explicitly shorter minimum focal length
24mmvs 27mm (the average)
vs 1.18mm (best: HP Photosmart R937)
A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
