DSC-WX300/B - the Community
Bring the action ultra-close with a remarkable, 20x zoom ultra-compact
camera. Plus, share pics and video easily to Facebook and more with wireless
transfer to your smartphone or tablet. Easily shoot all day with battery to spare
with up to 500 photos per charge.
Key Features
20x optical zoom plus 40x Clear Image Digital Zoom
Get up close with 20x optical zoom plus 40x Clear Image digital zoom. Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get
closer to the subject, resulting in unsharp images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns
found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality
images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos.
18.2 Megapixel Back-illuminated Exmor® R CMOS Image Sensor
This camera features a 18.2 megapixel Exmor® R CMOS image sensor that brings out the power of the camera’s Sony®
G lens to deliver extremely fast speed, high resolution, and stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and
drastically reduced grain
WiFi sharing to upload photos and videos
WiFi lets you quickly upload photos and videos to social media sites through your WiFi smartphone or tablet, back them up
on a network-connected PC, or view them on a large screen TV.
AVCHD™ 1080/60i video
Record crystal clear movies in high resolution with capabilities for 60i in 1080 AVCHD™ video.¹ This provides stunning, fast
motion video with less distortion for playback on your HD TV.2 With dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both at
the same time.
Shoot nearly all day with improved battery life
Take up to 500 photos per charge for high-volume photography on-the-go.
Optical SteadyShot™ image Stabilization with 2-way Active Mode
Sony's Active Mode image stabilization gives you the freedom to shoot movies even while walking or running³. 2-way
Active Mode corrects for both vertical and horizontal motion.
Enhanced Superior Auto
Enhanced Superior Auto supports scenes with dynamic motion to provide beautiful results even in dark situations. The
result is clearer images with less blur.
Capture the decisive moment with up to 10fps
Capture full 16.2 megapixel resolution images at up to 10 frames per second, helping to ensure that the decisive moment
is captured such as the soccer ball flying into the goal. In addition, a mechanical shutter helps reduce distortion when
continuously shooting moving subjects.
Creative shooting with Picture and Beauty effects
Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by
heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. Beauty Effects allows edits to skin tones, skin smoothing, shine
removal, eye widening, and teeth whitening. Beauty Effects can be combined to further enhance the image.
Intelligent Sweep Panorama™ mode-up to 360°
Intelligent Sweep Panorama mode takes our Sweep Panorama function to the next level with the addition of motion
compensation. Even when subjects are moving in the foreground of your landscape, these cameras can detect faces
and moving subjects, intelligently stitching different widths together to minimize distortion. Simply press the shutter button
and sweep the camera in the desired direction and the camera continuously shoots at a high speed, then seamlessly
stitches the images together with automatic position adjustment to create one stunning panoramic image. Available in
wide and up to 360° full circle, the camera can take a variety of panoramic shots.
