Selfridges Says

Take your photography to the next level with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX300 digital compact camera. Explore the creative freedom of manual controls plus DSLR-style design that fits comfortably in your hand and pull any scene closer with the 50x optical zoom. Lock on to your subject with fast autofocus and give your photos a professional finish, even when the lights are low.


Key Features:
One lens, endless possibilities
Forget changing lenses while you’re in the wild or on the beach: every photo opportunity’s covered with the powerful 50x optical zoom lens. Grab expansive, wide-angle landscapes – or zoom in for telephoto close-ups of animals and birds, while your camera keeps it all steady.

Capture detail, even in low-light
More detail means better pictures and Full HD video. Capture moments that really stand out from the crowd with an Exmor R™ CMOS sensor that cuts out picture noise for clear, sharp results, even at dusk or indoors when the lights are dim.

No guesswork needed
Wondering which settings are best? Let your camera do all the work. From close-ups to twilight portraits, your camera adjusts everything automatically so you easily get the results you want, no fuss. It even detects if your subject's moving, cutting motion blur in any scene.

Smooth and steady Full HD movies
Just touch a button and shoot brilliantly crisp, detailed Full HD video clips: you'll enjoy stable, blur-free images even while walking or zooming. Record in 50p mode and film 50 frames of Full HD (1920x1080) every second for silky-smooth, cinematic action.

Keep pace with moment
Grab those spur-of-the moment photo opportunities that only happen once. Speedy autofocus snaps accurately onto your subject for crisp, blur-free shots – even at high zoom settings or in dim light where other cameras struggle.

Get that professional look
Show you’re serious about taking better pictures. Effortlessly handle lengthy shooting assignments with a compact DSLR-style camera body that fits comfortably in your hand. Every control’s carefully placed and easy to reach, like you'd expect from a DSLR camera.
