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

junior entry level – Nikon D3400;

professional level – Nikon D500. Continue reading

Review Panasonic HC-VXF990 Camcorder

The popularity of amateur camcorders is gradually declining. The reason is simple: if earlier buying an inexpensive video camera was the only way to record video on family holidays and on trips, today most users use smartphones for this purpose. In addition, in recent years, the video capabilities of SLR cameras and mirrorless cameras with interchangeable optics have greatly expanded. They are most often chosen for commercial shooting, when artistry is important.

However, classic amateur camcorders are in no hurry to retire. Recently I happened to get acquainted with one of the top camcorders in the amateur segment – Panasonic HC-VXF990. The main question that interested me was: what modern video cameras of this category can contrast their competitors in the form of smartphones on the one hand and SLR cameras on the other.
