Crazy Clear Close-Ups

See details you never knew existed with astoundingly clear 50X optical zoom, making close-ups more interesting than ever. Imagine tight shots of the lead singer in concert, or the expression on your favorite player's face as he steps up to the plate. Best of all, the action stays clear and stable even when you're fully zoomed in, thanks to Optical SteadyShot image stabilization technology and the camera's powerful processor.


Super 50X Zoom

Zoom in incredibly close for great sports, travel and wildlife photos. The Cyber-shot HX300 camera boasts a whopping 50X optical zoom plus 100X Clear Image digital zoom technology to bring you near enough to capture the most distant details - from leaves on the trees, to smiles on the soccer field. The camera's powerful processor reduces graininess for crisper, higher-quality close-ups.


Say Goodbye to Blur

Don't let a not-so-steady hand prevent you from capturing the moment. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization compensates for camera shake by countering camera movements in both horizontal and vertical directions. Plus, Active Three-Way stabilization keeps things steadier yet with digital rolling control that offsets clockwise and counterclockwise rotations, resulting in smoother videos even while zoomed in close. The result? Sharp, blur-free photos and footage in otherwise unsteady situations, like shooting video while walking.


Pixel Power

With a 20.4-Megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, capture high-resolution images that take full advantage of the camera's high-quality Carl Zeiss lens. More pixels means you can enlarge, zoom in, and crop your photos without losing detail. Advanced processing technology reduces noise and graininess for incredibly crisp, clear images - even in challenging low-light conditions.


Amazing HD Movies

Record crystal-clear movies at the highest resolution available with Full HD 1080/60p video capture (records in 29-minute segments). Stunning, fast-motion video with reduced distortion looks great when played back on your HDTV2. Notice a perfect photo opp while shooting video? With dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both at the same time.


Overhead of the Crowd

The tiltable 3" LCD makes it easy to reach above a crowd and take great shots with an interesting overhead perspective. Since you can angle the LCD so it's facing towards you, you'll be able to frame the shot exactly as you want. It's also convenient for shooting subjects situated at a low angle, like while snapping photos of children at their eye level.


Never Miss the Moment

Capture every moment with high-speed shooting of up to 10fps at full 20.4-Megapixel resolution. It's perfect for sports, action photography or capturing a unique sequence of photos. Your shots will be clear and blur-free thanks to a mechanical shutter which helps reduce distortion when continuously shooting moving subjects.
