Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H1

 

SLR-style functionality, 12x optical zoom and a killer price - the Sony DSC-H1 has a lot going for it.

Sony's first SLR-style super-zoom camera is a real winner, and a bargain at the price. Excellent handling, a good list of features and superior picture quality, combined with a 12x image-stabilised lens make this a good all-rounder and a superb...

Sony DSC-H1

 

Very good to excellent image quality.Effectively stabilized 12X zoom.2.5 inch LCD monitor and electronic viewfinder.Powerful flash.Full range of photographic modes.Good ergonomic design.

No uncompressed or RAW format.Some strong highlights can get burnt out unless negative exposure compensation is used.Software lagging in comparison to the quality of the camera, and what other manufacturers provide.

Cybershot H1

 

Sony's Cybershot H1 is clearly going after the same buyers targeted by Panasonic's FZ5, another camera released at around the same time. Both are styled like an SLR, and both feature two-piece clip-on lens hoods, image stabilization, 12x optical zoom...

Boasts solid build quality, 12x zoom, Steady Shot image stabilization, and an impressive feature set.

Limit of 1/1,000 shutter speed.

Sony uses its Super Steady Shot image-stabilization technology to help you reduce camera shake, which can occur with such a powerful zoom, and like the FZ5's OIS it does a fine job. Image quality is good - the camera delivered natural colours with low...

Sony DSC H1

 

Sony DSC H1 Review. This is a super zoom digital camera. It has five megapixels and a twelve times zoom lens. It is also one of the very first compact digital camera to come with image stabilisation.

Picture quality ; Large LCD screen ; Ease of use ; Fast shutter response ; Strong flash

Slight purple fringing when the zoom is fully extended

The Sony DSC H1 is a worthy addition to the increasing list of extended zoom cameras. It takes very good photos and will give all of its competitors a run for their money.

Sony DSC-H1

 

The model that restores Sonys reputation at the higher end of the compact camera market. It may be a bit on the chunky side but this is one of the most usable cameras around. Boasting a 2.5-inch colour screen, smooth zoom button and su

Review of the Sony Cyber-shot H1 - Digital SLR Reviews

 

The H1 is Sony's first entry into the big-zooming compact range, currently dominated by models like the Canon S2 IS, Panasonic FZ5 and Konica Minolta Z5.

This was Sony's first mega-zoom camera, and its combination of lens, price, big LCD, features and build quality, makes it a strong contender in the big-zoom market.

Sturdy 'camera' feel, fast zoom, good image stablisation, good image quality, large LCD, intuitive button layout, easy to use
