  • 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: 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; Stabilizzatore di immagine; Rilevamento dei volti
  • Cons: Memoria interna non elevata

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

  • 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
