With a 15x lens and tilting monitor, the H9 talks the talk, but can it walk the walk?

Sony Cyber-shot H9

 

Sony gets you close to the action with its 15x zoom

The H9 has a great 15x zoom lens and high def image output, but the clumsy interface and high price are off putting.

The Sony DSC H9 has a fifteen times optical zoom lens. This is one of the largest zooms you will find on a consumer digital camera. I found the picture quality to be good and I was impressed at the way Sony managed to handle all the features to ensure...

Some purple fringing - noise in my lowlight test

A strong choice if you're after an ultra zoom camera, the Cyber-Shot DSC-H9 sports a 15x optical zoom and captures some good shots, however it does have issues with haloing and purple fringing, which will be irritating for many users.

15x zoom, Sharp pictures, Good noise response, Image stabilisation

Very poor haloing and purple fringing issues, Chunky and somewhat flimsy design

Review: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H9

 

The DSC-H9 is mighty fast, blasting more than 18 JPEGs in 10 seconds, with no shutter delay for single shots – great for sports and...

LCD tilts up and down for extreme-angle shots. Face-recognition technology is smart enough to fire fill-flash in harsh sunlight. 15X optical zoom

Tiny viewfinder nearly useless. No RAW support. Shadow details can be grainy even in daylight. Noise ruins darker shots
