Summary: I bought the DSC-H5 to replace a simple point and shoot I owned. I had been a photo enthusiast years ago and owned a couple of 35mm SLR cameras though I was never an expert or anything. But the DSLR world was just too expensive for someone like me. So, I looked for a bridge camera that would still take good shots in a point and shoot fashion but leave me some additional control over the shutter and exposure so I could venture into the digital photo world.
Excerpt: This Sony digital camera can do so many application's and task. I don't know where to begin.The possibilities are unlimited. It is a great camera for still or motion. Good for panoramic photography. Lense system like no other. Attractive styling and design.I Recommend this camera for am-mature and professionals alike. Great resolutions and quaility. Lightweight. Strongly up holds the Sony brand.
Excerpt: I have this camera and I do like it. It is easy to take pictures and load them onto my computer. I do wonder though....my neighbor has the same camera and hers takes much better pictures. Could it be the operator or is something up with my camera?
This one is a winner! great for indoors and outdoors.

Excerpt: I am a photographer and I use this camera for indoors and outdoors! It is one of the best cameras I have tried using, The other cameras I tried Would either not accept the light too well or be too dark! Some cameras i tried would flash when it wasnt needed and would just mess up the lighting to the pictures! but this one has worked perfectly for me! My outdoor pictures turn out amazing and i love how they look. They don't need editing or anything!
Summary: I'm a hard marker, so an eight from me is pretty damned good. This is a good camera, one I really enjoy using. It's large-bodied, but that makes it handy if your fingers aren't teeny-tiny. The image stabilisation is terrific, and in the main, the image quality is great. Some purple fringing if you really push the zoom, but otherwise, definitely good.
Pros: 12x zoom Ability to use extra lenses Solid body
