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.

5 best IP cameras

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
