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.
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.
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: In my opinion, this "point and shoot" is the level just below the "DSLR" camera category. Without getting into specifics, it takes excellent pictures, ie: wedding shots, family events, even sporting events (as long as the athletes are not real fast runners).
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 have owned this camera for 2 years now and safely can say its a good camera in most aspects. Its use in everyday situations is what makes it so decent. There are always pro's and con's to everything, and this is no exception. But, i may say there is more good than bad.
Summary: I was a little skeptical at first to get another expensive sony product, but The H1 is a high quality camera. I've had mixed results with Sony electronics over the last 10 yrs. Alot of the time it seems the craftmanship was more for production and profit than actual quality, but still carried a...
Summary: I decided to buy it, because on several tests and reviews this camera got an 9.1 from people who allready bought this one. What I like abt this camera is the display which is very large and clear compared to others. What I also like is the possibility of several automatic programms.
Summary: This camera is an excellent buy. The best zoom! In comparison to cameras in this price range, you are getting the best bang for your buck here. Many controls make this a great camera for the expert, who will know what to do with them.
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.
