Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX300

Introducing the Cyber-Shot DSC-HX300
At the end of February 2013, Sony introduced a camera that can be safely described with the words “all at once”. This Cyber-Shot DSC-HX300 is a compact camera with 50x optical zoom. Today this handsome man came to our editorial office. He is waiting for a large field test in the format of “week with an expert.” For seven days I will describe my shooting experience with the HX300 and its functions, test the camera in different conditions and show the results of real shooting.

But we’ll start by exploring the Cyber-Shot DSC-HX300. The main advantage of this model is a 50x zoom lens. Its range of equivalent focal lengths is simply amazing: from 24 to 1200 mm at aperture f / 2.8-6.3. I recall how in ancient times I had a 1000 mm lens for a DSLR. At f / 10 aperture, it weighed 2.5 kg and did not fit into a standard photo backpack. For comparison, the Cyber-Shot DSC-HX300 weighs only 630 grams with the battery. Continue reading

5 best IP cameras

The main feature of any IP camera is its electronic filling. Depending on the cost of the device, it may have different additional functionality. For example, there are models that have a night mode – they do not need to turn on the light in the room. There are also IP cameras that can be accessed from absolutely any other gadget – in particular, from a smartphone. In a word, if you do not regret money and get the best model, you will sleep peacefully, as your store, bank or some other object will be reliably protected.

Corum CCTV was founded recently. For a short period of existence, she managed to make herself a big name. Now Corum IP video cameras are installed in retail outlets and premises of any type.

Buyers are not confused by the relatively low cost of such devices – it is much more important that the cameras stably perform their task. Many models produced by Corum have a waterproof housing, which allows them to be installed even on the street, attaching to the facade of the building. Continue reading

Pentax Optio 60

With the development of digital photographic equipment, two main trends are steadily observed – an abrupt increase in the resolution of CCDs and a gradual decrease in prices in each of the categories of cameras. However, there are a number of market niches in which the price remains the same, but at the same time there is a constant qualitative improvement in cameras. By “quality improvement” we should understand not only the increase in sensor resolution, but also the improvement of lenses, ergonomics, a set of service functions – in short, all that allows you to get good pictures without extra effort on the part of the user. In one of these market niches can be attributed cameras, the cost of which ranges from 200 to 300 $. In the second half of the nineties of the last century, for the amount mentioned, it was possible to purchase a product of a little-known brand from Southeast Asia, equipped with a plastic similarity to the lens and a CMOS sensor with a resolution of less than a megapixel, moreover, the manufacturer often considered the flash and LCD display to be an excess and did not equip their products.
