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.
