Sony Cybershot T300

We've given the T300 a grade of C+.

Editor's Review

Packed with cutting edge "intelligent" features, the Sony Cybershot T300 is the cream of the crop of new supercompacts. Leading the list are a 3.5-inch touch-sensitive LCD screen, an advanced face detection function that can recognize smiles and differentiate between child and adult faces, semi-manual focus, and a D-Range Optimizer function that automatically evens the exposure across a wide dynamic range. Finally, iSCN mode will take one shot with user settings and then instantaneously follow it up with a second shot using optimized settings. With all of these features included, the 10.1-megapixel sensor and 5x optically stabilized zoom lens come as something of an anticlimax, but they shouldn't be scoffed at.

Camera has the 'shakes' and Sony Service/Repair says there is nothing wrong! (Carole Bellars — 10/15/2009)

I bouthg the camera specifically to have an easy to use housed (under water marine pack) for my passion diving.

However, after 1st trip with the unit I experienced 'shaking' when camera in housing. My buddy suggested that they can overheat in humid conditions and to add it a 'moisture' absorbing pack

2nd trip - this was worse, so finally sent of within the guarantee period to Sony's repair center in Wales, England. With this in NOT due to batteries as all 3 that I have can not be faulty.

Product was returned with 'NOTHING WRONG'. I called to ask what 'tests' they did and they said 'you didn't suppy the battery'! so with their battery 'NOTHING WAS WRONG'.

I know this is incorrect as now every time I open the lens it shakes! (It does not if you turn on the 'view' pictures only'

I am very frustrated and am about to go on a new trip and need a new camera (time to approch Sony again is not there)! and am having difficulty locating a 'replacement' that is new. pending me being able to approach Sony again!

Not a happy person

Camera shakes uncontrollably (L Yow — 06/02/2009)

After the warantee ran out all my pictures are fuzzy because the camera shakes and the image stabilization is on. And Sony wants $171.00 to fix it. Pictures are horrible.

Great camera (AshTX — 12/01/2008)

I just took the star off from the price. The camera is a little tricky to work at first, but once you get used to all of the menus and everything it is GREAT!! I was a little scared to buy this camera at first from all of the negative reviews floating around the internet, but played with the display and fell in love. It takes great pictures, and the videos turned out better than expected. I also love the fact that you can edit the pictures right on the camera and draw on them. I played with the Nikon camera that is similar, but this one won hands down. I would recommend this camera to anyone who is willing to spend the money.
