Sony came out with its new 8-megapixel designed to appeal to families having athletes in their midst. This camera introduces Sony’s new advanced sports shooting mode. Sony changed some features between last year's H5 and its latest megazooms, the Cyber-shot DSC-H9 and DSC-H7. An f/2.7-4.5 31mm-465mm 15x supersedes the 12x zoom of last year's. Sony’s Cyber-Shot DSC H7 major feature is the image sensor, which increases resolution from 7 to 8-megapixels. Other new features include an even more powerful 15x image stabilized optical zoom lens. This camera is full of features, such as a 2.5 inch LCD screen, easy to use controls and an incredible exposure system. AA batteries are replaced by a proprietary lithium ion. It provides everything that an advanced photographer is looking for. Sony Cyber-Shot DSC H7 has great picture quality even with the full zoom on. The night shots are great due to its powerful flash. The display screen is bigger as compared to its older brother DSC-H2. The negative point is that the battery must be taken out every time when charging it though it’s quite lasting. A user complained that indoors photography takes too long to focus and the picture on the LED screen is not what was desired. However this problem could be solved by using the viewfinder. The electronic “viewfinder” can be seen in any light. The negative point of the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC H7 is that the dial switch is on the back of the camera making it somewhat inconvenient. Another user found the photos taken to be terrific, the mechanical aspects amazing, the hand-hold very comfortable and secure and the camera body is light and easy to handle. Moreover one must go around the different settings in order to get the required feature. But as soon as this is done it becomes the perfect pocket-friendly camera.
