Summary: I am not a good photographer. I like to take snapshots, and I like to shoot short movies with my camera. In some settings, the time between the pressing of the button and the opening of the shutter is 2-3 seconds. The shot I had intended is lost.
Summary: After returning a Canon Sure-Shot I received, and did not like at all, I did a lot of searching reviews before deciding on the H50. Even then I still wasnt sure it would be the camera for me. I have to say that so far I have been more than satisfied with the ease of use and quality of this camera.
Summary: I have had a succession of Sony's and currently use the DSCH50 and a pocket sized Cybershot DSCW5 as a constant companion. The DSCH50 is an excellent product with a large tiltable LCD screen, excellent lens quality, a more than adequate 15 x optical zoom and a pretty hefty 9.1 megapixels.
Summary: I couldn't be more pleased with this camera. It takes absolutely beautiful pictures with very little effort on my part. I did a lot of research before buying, and I seriously could not have made a better choice! I've been using it for about a year now, and here are my observations...
Summary: I purchased this camera after returning a Canon SX100 IS, a Nikon L100, and a 10mp Sony that was so horrible I forgot the model number. I've read through many of the reviews on this site posted on this camera.
Summary: I'm been using this camera for 6 months, and I really likes the quality of pictures taken. When I use the full zoom the clarity on the LCD screen and the capability to move it in different angles is very useful above all in light conditions.
Summary: Overall, it does what it says. I looked at all the digital review sites and found that this was great value at the price band I was looking at. I'd used an older Sony Cybershot at work so I knew roughly what to expect which was excellent photos !!!
Excellent choice for amateurs who want to act like pros

Summary: I certainly fit the category of an amateur photographer trying to act more pro like and this camera feels great. I am a Sony loyalist though I did do some research on Nikon before buying this camera (I had earlier bought a Sony Cybershot in which I was very disappointed).
