Sony DSC-HX300 Digital Camera User Guide

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.
