The Sony CyberShot takes great photos from a moving bus.

Excerpt: I have an early version of the Sony CyberShot DSC cameras. Mine is an H1; I believe there are at least ten versions of this camera now. My H1, which was purchased in January 2006, still takes wonderful photos. I get great short video clips as well as wonderful stills. I have some fantastic video footage of an active whale watch, and impressive footage of waterfalls, to name just a few of my triumphs.
Sony H1 Camera: Great image quality, but won't fit in a pocket.

Excerpt: I have owned a series of Sony Digital cameras, and this is the first one (H1) that I have purchased for my wife. What sold me was the long optical zoom lens (10x) which is great for travel and sports, although you obviously have to be careful with shake and vibration. We took this camera to Tanzania to do some volunteer work, and the shots we took were wonderful, both of the local population and during a brief safari.
Excerpt: This camera is great! Weather you're an amateur or intermediate photographer, This camera has many capabilities. Aut mode is great for people who like to point and shoot. I use Manual Mode to customize my photos. There is movie mode where you can take good quality video. I also like to experiment with slow shutter speeds on this camera for some pretty cool effects. I recommend this camera to anyone.
Excerpt: This is a truly great digital camera at a great bargain price!!! Takes super fine detailed pictures even at 16 x 20 blowup size! Easy to use-all functions very simple to implement. I have never had any problems with this camera through the years. Even battery life is excellent. You'd think I was a Sony representative!!!
The Sony-Cybershot H1 Digital camera is a great camera.

Excerpt: I have the Sony-Cybershot H1 digital camera and I love the pictures it takes, expecially the action pictures. The pictures are clear and print out wonderful, in fact all of my pictures in my home have been taken with this camera. The video portion is not a great as I would like it and needs to be tweeked. But still produces good video.
Excerpt: This camera has a great optical zoom, I even took pictures of the moon. While at the same time it has a great macro shot, I took close up of flowers, ants and moths. Wonderful for special occasions, sports, outdoors, landscapes, family portraits,closeups and many more. The only problem I had with the camera was indoors at the school auditorium, very grainy and dark. But very worth the money. All of the photos were taken with this camera, You will not be disappointed.
Excerpt: When we finally decided to buy our first digital camera I spent lots of hours in the internet researching. I found that Sony plans to produce DSC-H1 camera soon (it was back in 2005 I think) but this camera is not available yet. All specifications were very impressive so we decide that we will buy this digital camera as soon as it released. Well, we spent top dollars for it because it was new and it was hot that time.
Summary: I just received the camera and am therefore still learning it. It has only 5.1 megapixel which is a small number by todays standards, but my smaller Sony with 5 meg is able to print cropped 8x10 prints very clearly. This camera has a 12x zoom lens and the older Sonys especially are noted for the quality of their lenses. This camera in addition to the screen on the back to view your subject before snapping the picture has a viewfinder type display.
Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H1 while being a older camera and not having the huge megapixel count of the newer camera is still a solid camera. My family likes it so much that we have 5 of them. The Pro's: Uses regular AA batteries that can be purchased anywhere. Has a "View finder" as well as a large screen which saves batteries. Simple direction controls for the most part. Memory cards are easy to use and purchase and you can save hundreds of images.
Good Camera but extras needed to get best performance.

Summary: Good all around digital camera that when outfitted with filters and close up lenses will serve one's photo needs quite well. The camera by itself is good for basic shoots but the above mentioned accessories can be bought for not much at all. Also an adapter is needed for the 58 mm close up lenses and filters to fit. The adapter will also help protect the lense that extends as you prepare to take a picture.
