Summary: Hi, I bought my first one around 2006. Then I got one for my truck to have for those sudden "look at that" shots. One burned in a fire and this one replaces it. I love the AA batteries rather than proprietary $$$ and like the simplicity of taking shots with different settings just by twisting the adjustment knob. With the little golfer setting you can stop a hummingbirds wings in motion. Glad I found this one at AMAZON, my favorite place to shop.
Summary: I bought this used camera based on the user reviews and the price. It goes through batteries pretty quickly but takes great pictures. Lots of features and can be switched to manual - which I intend to learn how to use some day. Right now, I'm happy with the automatic settings.
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.
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!!!
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.
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 picture quality on this camera is outstanding. The Sony DSC-H1 has started going the route of so many other camera manufacturers by not including a memory card with the camera. Instead they've built 32MB of memory right into the camera. That holds about twelve images at the highest image quality setting, so consider a memory card to be a mandatory purchase.
