Conclusion: I must admit I wasn't that impressed when I first held the Sony H3 in my hands. It looks like a toy camera and the build quality did not inspire my confidence either. In the three weeks or so that I have now used and tested the H3 I have had to somewhat change my opinion. In fact I have even grown a little fond of this latest addition to Sony's 'High-Zoom' range.
Pros: Reliable 'point and shoot' performance, Good image quality in good light; bright, sharp images with immediate 'consumer friendly' appeal, Powerful flash, Efficient image stabilization, Very good zoom range (although no real wide angle), Compact dimensions for the zoom range, Reliable exposure system in most shooting conditions, Good edge-to-edge sharpness, Good detail at lowest ISO settings, Some in-camera retouching options, Predictive AF helpful when photographing m...
Cons: No real wide angle, Manual mode only offers 2 F-stop settings, Slow, unreliable focus in low light, Ugly, bulky lens hood (although you don't have to use it), Mediocre build quality, Only basic external controls, Longwinded menu structure, Screen has a low resolution for its size and is not very bright, Non-standard video/USB connector, Combined effects of noise and noise reduction at high ISOs and in low light produces poor results, Noise reduction effects visible ev...
Conclusion: While I liked the Panasonic DMC-TZ3 , the Sony DSC-H3 has more positives such as much faster shot-to-shot times and quicker focusing. Image quality was just a tad better, not dramatically different but shooting at higher ISOs delivered less noise. I really wish the H3 had a larger LCD screen and the 28mm option because that would make it a slam dunk winner. As always do your own hands-on test but if it were my money, speed wins out—and the Sony has it to spare.
Pros: Compact 8MP 10x digicam with OIS
Cons: Small LCD screen; limited manual adjustments
Conclusion: Mit der H3 ist Sony eine tolle und leistungsfähige Kamera gelungen, die bestimmt viele Fotografen anspricht – zumal der Preis von etwa 240 Euro sehr günstig ist. Jedoch hätte die H3 ein etwas schärferes Display verdient, selbst wenn sich der Preis dadurch um 30 oder 40 Euro verteuert hätte.
Pros: Sehr gute Bildqualität, Sehr schnell, Günstig
Conclusion: La Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H3 è un’ottima fotocamera compatta, dotata di sensore da 8 MP, di zoom ottico molto potente, 10x, design robusto, obiettivo Carl Zeiss, stabilizzatore di immagine, rilevamento dei volti, elevata sensibilità fino a 3200 ISO e buona durata della batteria. La memoria interna non è molto elevata, solo 31 MB, pertanto si consiglia l’acquisto si schede esterne.
Pros: ZOOM OTTICO; Rilevamento dei volti; Stabilizzatore di immagine
