The Sony Handycam HDR-CX300 is a flash-based Handycam digital camcorder released in 2010 as one of Sony’s more affordable options. Unlike the HDD-based or the high-capacity Flash models, the HDR-CX300 sporst a relatively small 16GB internal memory capacity. However, it does include SD/SDHC memory expansion options. Plus it can directly copy files to/from an external, portable USB hard drive. Like other units in the series, this camcorder is capable of full 1080p video capture. More importantly, it hosts a wide-angle zoom lens with support for a 27.4mm focal length for photos, and a 29.8mm focal length for videos. Also included is optical steady shot image stabilization, and a golf shot mode that can capture a mere few seconds of motion via a sequence of 22 stills.
