Summary: I have now had this camera for over two weeks and have already taken almost 700 pics! It has something for everyone. The color is true to life and there are no flaws in its pictures besides the occasional purple fringing in bright shots and some noise at ISO's above 400. The flash is extremely powerful and actually enhances color, not bleaching out shots or causing red eye like other cameras.
Summary: I love my new camera! I used to own one of the first Sony digital cameras, with only 2MP, and it was much bigger and cumbersome. This camera is such a nice size. I love the stabilizing zoom and the pictures I take are very sharp, crisp, and with wonderful color. It's the perfect camera for me.
Summary: It was a bit pricey, but i feel that its well worth it. the Macro on this thing is phenominal. the lens it about 1cm for touchin the subject and i get sharp and clean images. it has tons of preset shooting modes, and you can tweak them infinitly to suit and condition. its kind of bulky so its a bit of a hassle to bring everywhere.
Summary: For that occasional professional shot and all the personal ones, this camera is the best I've used so far. It is so good in fact that I won't start my search for its replacement for some time. I mean, usually I'll buy a new camera and immediately start to do the research on the next camera because I need to find a balance between economy, performace, and long-term value. The H5 only lacks one feature that I like about my other Sony cameras and that's the remote control.
Summary: I love this camera for many reasons: It is lightweight even if a little more bulky that my pocket sized digital; it has a wonderful large screen. It has a fantastic zoom; it takes great photos at night; it is easy to readjust to different lighting situations although the auto feature usually picks the right exposure. I have some really beautiful photos taken with this camera.
Summary: I read a large number of reviews before I bought it here at Amazon. I was amazed to see the ratings for this camera skewed by a handful of low ratings. A couple were mad claiming that "the Sony Memory Stick Duo" didn't fit in the camera. Huh? That couldn't be further from the truth. My 2GB works just fine. Being somewhat apprehensive with this purchase, I wasn't prepared for how blown away I was when I finally unpacked it and started shooting.
Summary: I bought this camera as an upgrade to my P10 & P8 sony's, as I was taking a trip to France for a month, and wanted the extended zoom and increased resolution. I just can't get over how much I like this camera. It does everything that I want it to do and more, especially after taking the time to learn the various functions.
Summary: I love this camera! The big display screen is great to have so you can tell if you need to take another shot. I have found it very easy to use even though, I must admit, I haven't read everything I should have. I am now taking the best photos of my life. What a great purchase!
