Sony CyberShot DSC-H3 Review

Digitaltrends
17 October 2008
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 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 sys...
  • 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 ...

  • Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H3 is a great ultra-zoom camera. Its compact build makes it ideal for travellers and it has a boatload of features along with capturing some fairly good shots.
  • Pros: 10x zoom, slim build, lots of features, nice colour balance, fast
  • Cons: Noisy shots above ISO 200, pictures a touch soft

Test: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H3 (Digitalkamera)

CHIP Online
1 November 2008
  • 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
  • Cons: Monitorauflösung

Sony Cybershot DSC-H3

CNET
14 April 2008
  • Conclusion: Il est plus gros qu'un compact, moins sophistiqué qu'un bridge, le Sony Cybershot DSC-H3 brouille les catégories. Son zoom impressionnant ne doit pas évincer ses autres caractéristiques, moins glorieuses.
  • Pros: Zoom très puissant, prise en main, flash puissant, sensibilité très élevée.
  • Cons: Absence de grand angle, définition médiocre de l'écran, démarrage lent, qualité vidéo moyenne, mémoire MemoryStick, port USB propriétaire.
