Sony's WX300 Cyber-shot is the smallest 20x zoom to date
I'm Josh Goldman and if you're looking for the smallest, lightest way to put a 20x zoom lens in your pocket, this is it.
It's the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 which features a lens that starts at a wide 25 millimeters and zooms to 500 millimeters.
Unlike Sony's bigger and more feature packed HX50V, this model is primarily targeted
at those who want a better point-and-shoot experience than you'll get with a smartphone.
So there are a lot of automatic shooting options including Sony's excellent panorama mode, creative effects, and multi-shot modes for low light and backlit subjects, but no direct control over shutter speed and apertures.
You also get built-in Wi-Fi for sending shots directly to iOS or Android devices as well as remote control of the camera and that will also let you shoot and
save to your device.
Photo quality and shooting performance are good, not quite what you'll get with the higher-end HX50V but certainly better than what a smartphone offers.
It also has great batter life.
So basically if you want a lot of zoom range but don't wanna feel too weighed down by carrying a second device, this is a very good choice.
I'm Josh Goldman and that's the Sony Cyber-shot WX300.
