Summary: Pictures from this camera are very good. It took a while to become accustomed to taking pictures with it - it was quite a bit different from my original Sony camera (unfortunately, no longer available, of course). The one thing I did not like at all was that this camera took regular AA batteries - we were having to change batteries twice a day on a trip West last summer. I was not expecting this inconvenience and additional cost to owning this camera.
Summary: My seventeen year old grandson wanted a nice camera, so I purchased this one for him. I have a camera that has more resolution, but he needed a good camera to do some experimenting with things that interested him. He loved the camera. I have watched him carry it around taking photographs of a lot of different things. It's not hard to see that he loves it. I have used Sony cameras about 15 years. Since the digital age and I also love the Sony brand.
Summary: The Sony Cybershot H200 is a nice little camera that takes very nice photos, but its slow response and processing times are maddening! If you need to get a quick pic of a once-in-a-lifetime moment, don't use this camera--you'll still be waiting for it to come on!
