I started out years ago taking photos with my cell. Later moved to a Sony Cybershot Dsc hx300. Its been an amazing camera but it's time to upgrade. Where do I go from here? Most all my photos are geared toward nature, wildlife with a smattering of grandkids and oddities. I truly have no idea what to buy. I am so comfortable with my Sony and my phone. But I know if I want to really get the most out of this love of photos I have...I need to move on up. Help!

Hi, loaned my Sony hx300 to my daughter and now getting that horrid error message. Over half the pics taken are blurry. The workaround doesn't work so I need a camera. I had the Sony h1 years ago (the original duck camera 😁), wore it out then got this one. I love the long zoom as I live on a lake in the mountains but the main thing it will be used for is taking pictures of real looking dolls we make. I miss the bokeh of my h1 but again, that zoom! WiFi isn't important. Here's the kicker, I...

Advice needed on a camera. I am looking for the best camera for a beginner with a good eye for shooting nature, especially the MOON. I want craters and all.  Dang cell phone pics make it look like a street light. Buying my first DSLR camera and I am confused !!  A friend has the Sony Point and shoot DSC HX 300. She took some great pics of moon while it was on a tri pod. I kind of like the ease of it but want advice if I would be better in the long run with a *Canon. Here are the ones I am...

Thinking about buying Cybershot HX300 or HX400. I don't know that much about cameras, and I have no idea what is good and what is bad. But can I  use these two cameras for astrophotography? Or do you know any bridge cameras that can be used for astrophotography?

I can't find the answer in my user manual.  Is there any way to hold the shutter open for panning, for example? Or would the easiest answer be to put it in on a long shutter speed?  Thank in advance. Denverbarb -- not denverbarf (how the hell did THAT happen?)

I have a Sony Cybershot HX300, to this point have mostly used the auto settings. I am trying to get the settings to photograph moving water/waterfalls with a slow shutter speed. A friend who is a fairly knowledgeable photographer (although not with this particular camera) has worked with my camera and couldn't get it. The owner of the local camera shop spent a lot of time with me showing me how to get the proper settings, but was working with indoor lighting. As soon as I was outdoors with...
