  • 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.

  • Summary: The Cyber-shot DSC-H2 is a compact and stylish 6-megapixel camera with a two-inch LCD screen, a powerful Carl Zeiss 12x optical zoom lens (36-432mm in 35mm equivalence). The H2 incorporates Sony's Super SteadyShot optical image stabilization to help reduce image blur caused by hand movement.

28 June 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.

  • 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...

  • Summary: The megazoom Sony Cyber Shot DSC-H2's long, image-stabilized lens should have the soccer moms drooling--as long as they stick to the lower ISO speeds.
  • Pros: 12X zoom; image stabilization; decent selection of accessories.
  • Cons: Small LCD; large body; lots of noise at ISO 800 and above; no hotshoe.

  • 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).
  • 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...
  • 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

  • Pros: Big zoom, Nice colour balance
  • Cons: Poor image quality overall, Ugly

22 January 2008
  • Conclusion: Die Sony DSC-H2 empfiehlt sich vor allem durch ihre inneren Werte – keine andere aktuelle Mega-Zoom ist schneller oder macht bessere Fotos. Dabei kostet die Sony nicht mehr als die Konkurrenz-Modelle.
  • Pros: Gute Bildqualität, Sehr schnell, Optischer Bildstabilisator
  • Cons: Billig wirkendes Plastikgehäuse
