Summary: I got this camera 9 months ago after doing a lot of research. Till now this camera has not let me down... It deserves a 5 star rating but the reason for a 4 star rating is due to the Cons mentioned. Pros: 1. High quality pictures 2. Excellent optical zoom capability... 3.
Summary: I got this as a gift for my wife and she loves it. She was using a Fuji Finepix but wanted better quality and more options; this delivers as well as being more portable with the option of adding lenses for those special shots. Sony cameras do work best if you take the time to learn how to use them.
Summary: I was nicely surprised with the DSC-H3. I've owned Cyber-shots before and I've always liked them. The H3 is much lighter weight than previous models. I'm still experimenting with all the features; so far, it seems to shoot really well in low light, especially without the flash.
Summary: We find this camera easy to use. We were looking for a camera with alot of optical zoom and this one definitely has it. We've used a couple of different settings and it performed well. A couple of things - we wish the camera had a view finder and we would have liked a wrist strap.
Summary: I've really enjoyed this camera so far. The instructions are easy and not very long. I read through them and was using the camera within the hour. The only thing I have not figured out yet is how to use the continuous-shooting mode.
Summary: Takes great photos and easy to understand menu. I bought this model because I needed a camera that had a good zoom and that I could fit in my pocket. Some reviewers did not like the "hard" lens cap, but to me it is one of the best features because it really protects the lens.
Summary: Overall, I like the camera very much. It takes nice, high quality photos and offers a great optical zoom for the price. I only have a couple of complaints, mainly echoing the above reviewer's opinion that on older Sony digicams, it was only a couple button pushes to delete an image in-camera, now it...
Great Camera, Automatic features can get in the way

Summary: This camera takes great pictures, but the auto focus seems too smart at times and is best to probably leave at center-focus. This is perhaps due to trying to take more untraditional shots at odd angles, but none the less it seems to not focus where I want it to for many shots.
