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).
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!
Summary: It struggles to focus and while focusing it is pretty loud. If you finally get it in focus the pictures are MUCH better than the Nikon l820. The time between pics and shutter lag is prehistoric. I think it will be good for my daughter though for outside pictures.
Excerpt: Zoom is more than the camera can handle with regards quality and clarity at full zoom. The video is only average as well and microphone is tinny. Will probably be returning this unfortunately. Have a Hi-8 camcorder that has given me great performance for 10 years, this led me to this camera.
