Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50

13 May 2009
  • Summary: Plentiful features with all manner of adjustable options, entertaining gimmicks and rock-solid shooting make us like this camera a lot. We love the fold-out screen and fantastically delicate zoom control -- if you could stick an SD card slot in there, it'd be one of the best superzooms we've seen.
  • Pros: Excellent zoom control; massively tweakable; fold-out screen.
  • Cons: Usual Sony proprietary nonsense.

  • Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot H50 is a 9 megapixel super-zoom camera with a big 15X lens. The camera comes with an above average bundle, that includes a lens hood and very useful remote control. The H50 features a nicely viewable 3 inch LCD that can be tilted for high/low angle photos and powerful built-in flash. There’s no hotshoe for an external flash though. The Cyber-shot H50 features a 15X zoom lens with optical image stabilization.
  • Pros: Generally good image quality (though with some issues), Good 3 inch tiltable LCD, Very good in-the-box bundle: lens hood and remote control, Powerful built-in flash, Fast performing, Night Shot mode, Full manual mode, with expandability via accessories, Fancy playback mode
  • Cons: Some color fringing, barrel distortion and redeye, Competing cameras have bigger zoom lenses (18X, 20X, 24X), Certain buttons are too small; loose rear command dial, No flash hotshoe or RAW image format, Unintuitive and confusing menu and “home menu” system

  • Summary: The new Sony Cybershot H50 uses a powerful Carl Zeiss 15x optical zoom lens with Super SteadyShot optical image stabilization to capture action at a distance. The lens yields sharp, high-contrast images and reduces color fringing, even when shooting in telephoto ranges. Its improved "advanced sports" shooting mode now employs a system to apply higher shutter speeds, up to 1/4000 of a second, more frequently than on previous models.

Digital Camera Review
31 July 2008
  • Summary: Just about the time you think you’ve seen the end of the current crop of digital ultrazooms, up pops the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50 (henceforth the “H50″). The camera was announced towards the end of February but didn’t ship until May, so it’s a relatively recent arrival to the party whose guests include Fuji, Nikon, Olympus, and Panasonic – at least at the really big end of the zoom spectrum.

Sony's 9.1 megapixel superzoom features exceptional image quality and a multitude of features

  • Excerpt: Besides the "super thin keep in your pocket/purse all the time model of compact digital cameras" there seems to be a new kid on the block nowadays, the superzoom. Such is Sony's DSC-H50 (available in chrome or black finish). It sports the equivalent to a whopping 31mm~465mm focal length lens (that's a 15x zoom if you don't happen to have your calculator with you at the moment).
