Cyber-shot DSC-H300

Manufacturer
Sony

Item details

This is a point and shoot camera I am currently using.
It is great for beginners and has a decent ISO and shutter speed. my complaint is when you switch it to manual mode, you cannot change the shutter speed high like you need for flight shots. the screen just goes black.
