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

entry level – Nikon D5600, the hero of our review;
intermediate level – Nikon D7500;
professional level – Nikon D500. Continue reading

Digital movie cameras: introduction. What cameras were filmed and filmed a movie?

“Any camera in the hands of an amateur is amateur, any camera in the hands of a professional is professional.” This common phrase, popular among filmmakers, is largely true, because a person shoots a movie, not a camera.

After choosing the artistic solution to the film, its style, the director of photography selects the desired technological solution for the implementation of the creative tasks of the director. An interesting, high-quality film image, in addition to the filming process itself, is based on three main parameters: camera selection, optics selection and image processing at the stage of color correction and post-production. All these components are closely related to each other and inextricably affect how the film will end up. Today we’ll talk about choosing a camera to create a movie. Continue reading
