Sony W300 Price and Availability Watch

First published on: Friday, 13 February 2009

The price of most digital cameras trend downwards over time, and the same price drop should occur in the case of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W300 compact pocketable digital camera.

I’m not planning for any scheduled updates, but do check back here from time to time for availability information and the latest and best prices on the Sony W300 and related accessories.

Sony Cybershot DSCW300 13.6MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom and Super Steady Shot: $299.

Typical accessories for the W300 include:

  • Sony NP-FG1 InfoLITHIUM Type G Rechargeable Li-Ion Battery Pack: $35.82. Getting a second NPFG1 battery (and remembering to always keep it charged) is a good idea to ensure your camera never runs out of power during extended shooting sessions. Your W300 actually comes with the Sony NP-BG1 Type G Lithium Ion Rechargeable Battery Pack. The NP-FG1 and NPBG1 battery packs costs almost the same, but the main difference is that the NP-FG1 shows the actual minutes remaining before the battery dies, while the NP-BG1 only gives you a simple diagram of how much battery life is left.

  • Sony MS-MT4G Memory Stick PRO Duo Mark 2 media card: $16.54. The Mark II cards are especially suited for recording video and high-resolution photos, which requires high write and throughput speeds.

  • Consider the Sony LCS-CST General Purpose Soft Carrying Case ($13.08).

Good luck shopping for your Sony W300!
