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

Carl Zeiss is a world leader, developer and supplier of the world’s best optics, which finds its widest application where high precision is required. Since the mid-19th century, the world-famous company has honored traditions in the production of microscopes, lenses, rangefinders, optical sights and binoculars, setting the pace of the industry in the field of optics. This is the greatest manufacturer who knows absolutely everything: from micro and macro parts to large marine engines and wind turbines. Continue reading

The most recognizable camera in the world

The history of Polaroid began in 1922 at the Mouven Summer Camp for Boys, which was located on a lake in Connecticut. Barney Griden worked as a mentor in the camp, he was passionate about physics and later patented eight inventions for scuba diving.

Barney demonstrated scientific experiments to teenagers, woke them in the middle of the night to show a thunderstorm and explain its nature. Seen experiments so influenced his students that in the future many of them took up science.

The most famous among those students was Edwin Land, he patented 535 inventions – only Thomas Edison received more patents. Land’s inventions include a polarizer, an X-ray film, 3D films, night vision devices for the army, and much more.
