Customer reviews and ratings

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good, solid camera I love this camera. It has an amazing zoom feature but is not overly difficult to use. Lots of practice needed to hold camera really steady when in full zoom mode but hopefully Practice will make un perfect. 18 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by sony cybershot hx 300 I have this camera before and I can't fault it excellent results all the time. Whether on full zoom or normal always a good picture quality. The only downside is the lens cap which is loose otherwise a good purchase 18 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent camera. Do everything that propose! 29 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Camera for the Price I bought this camera as I needed HD Video for recording quarry machines for clients websites, I wasnt willing to drag my expensive camera down into quarries. I was really surprised and happy with my purchase. A brilliant camera for video & general images. More than enough for the average user. Only thing that lets it down is the digital viewfinder, a mini version of the back screen. But you could probably get used to it. Really liked the adjustable screen for overhead photography in a crowd etc. 28 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what I needed. I bought this camera for a holiday to Italy. I wanted to take great pictures but don't have the time to learn how to use a DSLR or the finances to invest in some of the other types of camera now available. So, I decided upon a bridge camera and after much research settled upon this model. I am thrilled, it does everything I need and more. The picture quality is excellent, it is quick and easy to use and wasn't heavy or bulky to carry all day either. I would definitely recommend this camera. 24 July 2015

Lens aperture

4 months, 1 week ago
I'm used to film cameras so maybe I am not understanding your max and min apertures ratings. You state that the min aperture is 2.8 and max 5.6. But on a film camera F2.8 is way bigger than 5.6. Also a typical min aperture on a film camera would be f11, f16 or even f22. I guess its different technology but could you explain please.
