Summary: The shutter button broke on my SONY DSCH1. No camera place would touch it. It had to be sent directly to SONY in Japan. That was like $177.I had had it for 5+ years. I bought an expensive Olympus, then a Sony H1 for a replacement. These cameras cost twice as much as this one did.
Summary: I'd seen impressive images taken with this camera, so I sought one out and found it at Amazon. Not many are likely to be buying this older model, but you need to know the following if you do: The image quality is REALLY extraordinary wihtin it's limitations.
Summary: I decided a lot before buying this camera, the tie was between cannon S2 IS and Sony DSC-H1. I finally decided to go for DSC-H1 This is an absolutly great camera, the 12x zoom rocks. The image stabilization is also awesome.
Summary: I am happy with my choice of Sony DCH1 camera. The picture quality is awesome and the 12x zoom really helps in outdoor pictures. I had to install 512MB additional memory as is standard for most cameras.
Summary: This camera makes it very easy to produce great pictures. The display is large and readable in any light. The camera sits well in your hand and the controls are easy to use. Used in its full auto mode you really cannot go wrong.
Summary: When looking for a long zoom camera I had narrowed my choices down to the Canon S2 or Sony H1. I had actually made up my mind to go for the S2 until I borrowed one for a week. I've written a product review of the Canon S2 explaining why.
Summary: Yes thats right, the undisputed king of the mega-zoom cameras is Panasonic's FZ-30. But what about before then? Well my friends before then we had two contenders for the mega-zoom crown the Sony H1 and the Canon S2IS. And right up until the Z-30 came out the H1 was giving Canon a sound butt whoopin!
Summary: What impressed me about the DSC H1: Huge 2.5" LCD screen Almost instant power up Quick focusing Easy zoom button (not twitchy like Canon's S2) The jog wheel on the top front of the grip (great when cycling through pictures) Low noise The manual settings (aperature, shutter speed, white balance)...
Excerpt: I am very fond of Photography. I love to take photos very much and in the past only I had decided to take one GOOD digital camera and I found SONY Cyber-shot DSC-H1. One of the amazing Cameras I have come across.
Pros: Picture Quality, Features, Simplicity in use, 12x Optical Zoom
