Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H20 review

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H20 is another great camera in the company's 2009 point-and-shoot lineup. It seems as if Sony took its equally excellent W290 compact camera and expanded it into a megazoom. It has a new menu system that makes operation easier,...

First-rate design; simple operation; excellent feature-to-price ratio.

Narrow lens; lens cap is a pain.

If you don't mind its extra bulk and narrow lens, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H20 is an otherwise excellent compact megazoom camera.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H20 Review

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H20 is a new super-zoom digital camera, offering a 10x image stabilized Carl Zeiss lens covering a focal range of 38-380mm, housed in a compact, go-anywhere package. Other key features of the Sony H20, successor to last year's...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H20 is much more than an incremental upgrade to last year's H10. With this camera, Sony has demonstrated that it is a company which listens to user feedback, as most of the issues we criticised the H10 for have been addressed....

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H20

 

Relatively light and compact ; HD video in 720p format ; Can use optical zoom when filming ; Long telephoto coverage for the money

Poor high ISO performance ; Slow flash recharge ; No exposure compensation button ; Poor wide angle performance

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H20 is an affordable super-zoom compact with a 10x stabilised lens and HD video recording capabilities. Slightly larger than the average compact, it's nonetheless smaller than most cameras with zooms of this range and will fit...

The H20's plastic body is the largest and heaviest in this lab test, but not by a huge amount.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H20 review

 

We'd prefer a wide-angle lens, but if you want to shoot wildlife but not buildings and sweeping vistas, this lens has an advantage, and the camera is up to scratch.

Expert review by : Ian Farrell (digicambuyer.co.uk)

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H20

 

Great handling rather than a fist full of features make this super-zoom a good choice

A great value camera with enough features to cope with a variety of subjects. But the main strength of the H20 is it's handling, which is first rate.
