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. When out in the field taking wildlife pictures is a breeze.
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: There are several things I don't like about this camera, and I'll get to them in a bit. But first things first: This is the big-zoom prosumer camera to buy. Check out the photo comparisons between the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H5 and the Canon PowerShot Pro Series S3 on the net at steves-digicams. Among other things, at every ISO setting above 100, noise is noticeably worse in the Canon S3 than the Sony H-5.
Great camera as long as you have a truck to carry the batteries.

Summary: The Sony H5/7.2 12X is a great camera if you understand alittle about regular 35mm photography, if not the instructions can be confusing.The zoom of 12X is wonderful for long distant photos.My only reason for not rating the camera 5 stars is, the battery life [2AA] is extremely short if you use all the camera menu options and also the camera is bulky and heavy. This is not snap shot camera, hence the reason for two cameras.
Summary: I bought it for $409 in August 2006 and it really a good camera with all the features I needed, with absolutely enormous 3-inch LCD display. It consumes batteries much faster. The image quality is good.
Summary: Oeveral a very good camera that I would certainly recommend to others. Here are the pos/negs... Benefits: - You can zoom in-and-out while in video mode. (I couldn't do this on previous Sony cameras) - The big screen is awesome. - The picture quality is awesome. Don't just look at the number of MP, the quality is what you need!!! - Handles red-eye well...
Summary: I've had the Sony DSC-H5 for about three months and all-in-all am very satisfied. This is my first digital camera, being an old SLR holdout. As noted in some of the other reviews, there are some minor issues - the location of the zoom button being my biggest complaint. It's too easy to hit that by mistake when composing a shot. A big concern for me was picture clarity.
Summary: Sony DSC-H5 is a great camera. Specially for the people who love long range optical zoom features like me. Its 12X optical zoom lens is really really incredible. With minimum distorions, long distance photography with it is really an adventure. One of its great features is that, while shooting movies you can still use the zooming feature. This is quite handy since you can go upto 57X zoom in vga mode. The Super SteadyShot Optical Image Stabilization system is amazing.
Summary: I've been playing around with a little Kodak camera for the past three years until finally dropping it one too many times meant it's eventual demise. So I shopped around for a new digital camera, one that would take the kind of pictures that I wanted for all of the situations that I find myself in. I take a lot of pictures of parties with very low lighting, and I don't really care for flashed out pictures.
