There's no Memory Stick bundled in the box with the DSC-H1, but you can store up to 12 shots at the camera's highest resolution in its 32MB of built-in memory. In our battery tests, we took 306 shots between charges--an impressive total for a camera...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H1

 

This superzoom has some fine features, but just a few hang-ups, too.

Good picture quality. Fairly good video capabilities. Quick boot-up. Large LCD screen.

Flash is too powerful in auto mode. Significant shutter lag with flash shots.

Sony Cyber Shot DSC-H1 review

 

Sony Cyber Shot DSC-H1

12X image-stabilized zoom; 2.5-inch LCD; speedy performance; full feature set; nice selection of accessories.

Slightly soft images; lack of fine detail; larger and heavier than the competition.

This is a capable megazoom camera that can hold its own against much of the competition.

Sony DSC-H1

 

Introduced in February 2005 (pre-PMA), the Cyber-shot H1 is Sony's attempt to win a share of one of the fastest growing digital camera market sectors, the 5 megapixel 'super zoom'. Although Sony has produced big zoom cameras before (the F828 and its...

Good resolution, good edge-to-edge detail, Great color, good exposure, Accurate and fast focus, Low shutter lag, Superb handling, comprehensive photographic controls, Jog dial makes manual / semi-automatic exposure very easy and fast, 12x zoom offers...

Slight overall softness when viewed at 100%, Some focus hunting at long end of the zoom (especially in movie mode), Image stabilization doesn't seem quite as effective as competition, Small (though bright and clear) viewfinder, High default contrast...

Considering this is Sony's first foray into the increasingly crowded - and competitive - 5MP 'super zoom', whereas other manufacturers are already into their second or third generation models, the DSC-H1 is a very impressive, very mature product indeed.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H1 Review

 

With a massive 12x optical zoom lens equivalent to 36-432mm on a 35mm camera, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H1 is Sony's representative in the ultra-zoom class of compact digital cameras. The DSC-H1 has a 5.1 megapixel sensor and features Sony's image...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H1 is Sony's first attempt at an ultra-zoom digital camera, and on the whole it is a very successful one. It's easy to see why - the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H1 is stylish, well-built and takes good 5 megapixel photographs that...

Digital Cameras - Sony CyberShot DSC-H1 Digital Camera Review, Information, Specifications

 

The Sony DSC-H1 marks a new category for Sony (at least in recent history), offering optical image stabilization with a very long zoom lens. The Sony H1 provides more manual exposure control than many other long zoom digital cameras, yet is easy to use...

Quite fast, good shutter response, very good shot to shot speed, Image stabilization works well, is a great help with a long zoom lens like the H1's

Slightly yellowish skin tones, Auto white balance had a hard time with household incandescent lighting

Though the LCD monitor is quite large and dominates the rear panel, Sony managed to keep all the functions necessary close at hand and easy to operate. Though it's a little on the small side, the grip area offers a firm hold on the camera. The lens is...
