Summary: The camera for some reason gets very little attention compared to other compact super zooms from Panasonic, canon, fuji, etc with very limited reviews. However its one of the better priced and highly featured camera's in the market, and is extremely well constructed.
Pros: - Very well built even though its made of plastic materials, and compared to other Sony cameras this is built in japan, - Carl Zeiss lens is sharp and clear, - Very long telephoto zoom for a 10X, - Good image stabilization, - Very powerful flash for a compact camera, - Video quality is very good,...
Cons: - Very long flash recycle time (over 10 secs), - Shutter lag (time from pressing the shutter to taking the photo) has a delay that makes it a hit and miss for taking photos of moving items (even if slow moving), - Focusing under low light is poor, - Lens cap is a nuisance, and automated lens cove...
Summary: I have owned the camera for about 3 weeks now and find it pretty easy to use. The picture quality seems to be good. I haven't tried printing any pictures yet. I bought an 8 MB memory card since one does not come with the camera.
Summary: Overall I think its the most balanced camera out there from a quality/features/price standpoint. Recently the price came down to $229 on amazon, makes a even better deal. Some things i like about it are: 1. Good picture quality 2. Good 10x zoom./Good Macro close up shots. 3.
Summary: My first digital camera was a Sony DSC-S75 which I still use and it takes great photos. I also own a DSC-V1 which I like for its movie clips that play right away in Windows Media Player. I loved those cameras so much I was sure I would like this one just as well, but so far I'm not sure.
Summary: With this camera you get something pretty close to what the SLR can produce without taking up all that much room or breaking the bank. The 10x zoom is nice and steady with shutter speeds of about 1/25th giving me nice results at 5x7. VR was invented for people like me who quiver.
Summary: Received this camera, record shipping from Adorama. Takes incredibly detailed photos, is extremely easy to set up and use right from the box, and the battery life has been above average so far.
Summary: I am a great fan of CANON cameras (I have Canon SLR and one point and shoot),I brought Sony DSC-H10 (previous model of DSC H20)to give it to my mother in law and as soon as I started using it I felt it as the best camera I ever used.
Would like a view finder and auto lens cover but otherwise, great

Summary: I misplaced my Sony DSC-P200 that I loved and assuming I would eventually find it (I did), I wanted something different to take on vacation. The P200 only has a 3X optical zoom and 2 sisters recommended a 10X. I've taken over 500 pictures/videos on this camera so far and overall, I'm happy.
