Sony's 2013 DSC-HX300 gets up close to the action with an impressive 50x optical zoom. Images are captured using a good 20.1 megapixel 1/2.3" CMOS sensor and a moderately fast f2.8-6.3 lens. Sony has also included an optical image stabilization system--a must for such a powerful zoom. The 10 fps burst mode, coupled with the 50x zoom, make this a good option for anyone looking to get closer shots of the game. The HX300 also includes the variangle LCD screen.
