Excerpt: I have owned this camera for over five years. I have used it everywhere from La Jolla to Myrtle Beach. It is nothing fancy, but I found myself going back to it even after "upgrading" to newer models. I have used it to take family portraits, climbing in caves, fly fishing, and boating.
Summary: I tried a different brand within the same price and specs and didn't like all the noise, so I returned it and got the DSC-H7. The only thing I wish it had (besides some of the features of the DSC-H9) is the ability to shoot in the RAW format.
Not a bad camera but hard and soft too Sony-specific
29 February 2008
Summary: The camera is not bad. What is dissapointing are that cables, batteries, charger (hardware) and software are Sony-specific so be ready to proliferation and spend a couple of hundred dollars more in accesories if you want back ups.
Summary: this is really a good point and shoot camera. i bought it in October it is a good camera and had really a good capturing speed and many shooting programs in it. it takes time to understand the camera, because of the operational modes. it took almost a month to get used to it.
Summary: This camera is loaded with lots of neat options and is a great camera for a beginner to intermediate photographer. It's a great camera to gain experience prior to spending the big dollars on a high-end SLR.
Summary: I had a Sony F-828 and made the mistake of selling it to buy an h7. I figured the F-828 was an 8.0mp and the h7 is a 8.1mp and thought I would be getting a little better camera, Boy was I wrong! The image quality is not as sharp compared to the old 828.
Summary: We bought the camera to use during three extended trips we plan this year, but are already using it to photograph deer in our back yard and our performing cats. We have been more than satisfied with the results. So far, says my wife the photographer. "It's all good."
not happy with nighttime indoor pictures at all very grainy
29 February 2008
Summary: outdoors this camera takes crisp clear pictures and the stop-action is great. indoors at night however flash or no flash, the pictures are really grainy. i have tried resetting the camera and no help.i don't know what to do.
Summary: Of all the cameras I've had throughout my 63 years this one is the best........the telephoto is killer.....just took it to Thailand and took over 1000 shots...everyone perfect!! The telephoto at 15X is unbelievably amazing and never a blurred image. Hardly ever need to use the flash.....
