  • Excerpt: This is a wonderful camera. I bought it because of the 12x optical zoom. It has allowed me to get some pics that otherwise I could not have gotten. Great for landscapes. The only down side is its size. It is too big for a pocket and somewhat bulky for hiking but I feel it is still worth it.

DP Review
6 December 2006
  • Conclusion: We praised the H1 - Sony's first foray into this crowded part of the market - as not only a surprisingly mature, well-rounded product, but one offering performance and output that put it very near the top of the tree. The H2 doesn't add a great deal, but it does offer some minor improvements in image quality, a few new features and a little more resolution.
  • Pros: Excellent resolution, good edge-to-edge detail, Great color, good exposure, clean sharp results, Accurate and generally fast focus, Low shutter lag, Superb handling, comprehensive photographic controls, Jog dial makes manual / semi-automatic exposure very easy and fast, 12x zoom offers excellent 36-432mm range, Packed with features, Powerful flash, Image stabilization, Program shift, 'Punchy' results straight out of the camera, Clean images up to ISO 200, Impressively...
  • Cons: Some focus hunting at long end of the zoom (especially in low light), Images very slightly soft, Image stabilization doesn't seem quite as effective as competition, Small viewfinder (high resolution though), Screen smaller and lower resolution than model it replaces, Some chromatic aberration and purple fringing, Movies are a little over-compressed, Occasional problems with blown highlights in bright, contrasty scenes, No RAW or TIFF mode, Could do with a higher top s...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2 Digital Camera Review

Digital Camera Review
23 May 2006
  • Excerpt: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2 is one of the successors to the popular H1.  The H line of ultra-zoom cameras from Sony have proved themselves with their 12x stabilized optical zooms.  The H2 provides good image quality, easy operation, and a nice flash.
  • Pros: Nice long, stabilized 12x zoom, Very powerful flash, Good noise performance, Good image quality
  • Cons: 2" inch LCD seems small (but keeps price down), Long flash charge time, Some controls a bit uncomfortable

Sony Cyber-Shot H2

Digital Photography Interface
27 April 2006
  • Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot H2 is a relative bargain for the price. It features lots of stuff which make it great: The 12x zoom lens (now by Carl Zeiss) with optical image stabilization, 6 megapixels and great battery life (400 shots). The camera itself looks and feels expensive - looking modern and better than most entry-level digital SLRs (at least from the front, in my opinion), feels solid and it's big enough to feel comfortable.
  • Pros: Carl Zeiss 12x zoom lens with optical image stabilization, Excellent exterior: Modern & stylish look, solid build, fits comfortably in hand, Above average battery life, Full manual controls with many accessories, Useful jog dial (some competition still don't have this), Excellent flash range with good flash control (especially with closeups), Great high ISO performance (Even ISO 1000 shots are acceptable), Unlimited VGA 30 FPS movie mode, Good image quality
  • Cons: LCD is small; visibility and resolution not excellent, No wide-angle conversion lens?, Slow and limited continuous shooting, Overall performance could be faster and better, Movie mode is basic and too bare: no zoom, focus when recording

  • Summary: Enthusiasts who either don't want, or can't afford, to stretch to a DSLR will get the most from the Sony Cybershot DSC-H2, along with beginners who eventually will want to do more than point and shoot without having to upgrade. It manages to satisfy both camps with amazingly few compromises. Plastic build and chunky Fisher Price looks aside, it's responsive, takes decent images and is keenly priced.

  • Pros: 12x zoom, Image stabilisation, Decent selection of accessories
  • Cons: Small LCD, Large body, Lots of noise at ISO 800 and above, No hotshoe
