Sony Cyber-shot WX300 in the Test

The Sony Cybershot WX300 delivers 20 times focal length range in a very small enclosure. We check the compact camera in the test and ask: where is the compromise?

Yes, with 96 x 57 x 26 mm the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 test is one the really small digital cameras. And with a focal length 20 times. But the weight of 121 grams mentioned in the technical data is really pure nude weight. Then, with battery and memory card, there are 165 grams. That little bulge out the shirt pocket, the extra weight is the compact digital camera but also well in hand.

The buttons of the Sony Cyber-shot WX300 with 4 mm diameter have significant pressure points, the marking of controls is small but badly. Yes not much space on the body of a small digital camera is now good. However, the triggeris getting. He is very sensitive. Lightly pressing has often resulted in that the camera already raises and not as expected, first focus is and measures. The two positions of the shutter release button “set” and “trigger” are too close together and require clearly more sensitive hands than ours.

Quick access to the settings

The small dial at the top of the Sony Cyber-shot WX300 offers mechanical delay options, routed by the the menu is. The menu button brings the entire menu bar button to display. Otherwise, it displays only the available settings for the selected menu. The display of various parameters on the right side of the display is clear and straightforward. One of this menu item allows access to more basic settings, probably rarely be changed. All settings can be made quickly and easily.

The display of the Sony Cyber-shot WX300 has a size of 3 inches and a resolution of 153.000 RGB pixels. The representation on the display is sharp and realistic colors. The display brightness is adjustable in five stages that are noticeably different and whose setting is also saved about switching off. So, you can set the display even on unfavourable lighting conditions.

The available zoom range from 25 to 500 mm (KB)is a highlight at this very small camera, according to a2zcamerablog. But the intensity of the Sony Cyber-shot WX300 relativised that something: starts at wide angle with f3, 5 and then SAG 5 for the long focal length on f6,. The macro range starts at 5 cm distance.

The Wi-Fifunction can act as a remote control for the Sony Cyber-shot WX300, by picking up the display screen on a Smartphone or a Tablet using an app.

Reliable stabilizer

For such a long focal length, the shaky shots are often a nuisance. Amazing how well the Sony Cyber-shot WX300 thus is finished. At a focal length of 500 mm (KB) with a shutter speed of 1 / 60 s, free from the hand of photograph you must trust himself already. However, the results are OK – there’s really nothing to complain about. Of course, the image quality can be improve by using a tripod. But please, who will want to clamp so a little thing on a tripod? Must also not be because the stabilizer is great.

The processing of the camera is clean and solid. The open HDMI connector on the bottom of the camera is not solid. Pollution that are problems quickly, if you even put the camera in your purse. Also the cover for the USB connector at the side of the camera is built for eternity.

The 16-Megapixel CMOS sensor of the Sony Cyber-shot WX300 is Rod merchandise, and this also applies to the image quality. The noise is verhaltensauffällig even at ISO100, that Sony has refused fortunately excessive noise suppression algorithms. The resolution values are 16-Megapixel-standard, the vote at ISO100 works harmoniously and naturally. However, from ISO 400 the Sony Cyber-shot WX300 assumes the air, what read is the comparatively high visual noise values can be.
