Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50 review

 

Sitting atop Sony's line of megazoom cameras is the 9-megapixel Cyber-shot DSC-H50. Its 15x f2.7-f8 31-465mm-equivalent lens, coupled with the company's SteadyShot optical image stabilization, lets you shoot far and somewhat wide. It's also built...

Versatile mix of ease-of-use features and manual controls; tilting 3-inch LCD; good color reproduction; zoom operates in movie mode.

Slowish startup and shutdown; occasional fringing, noise issues; no raw support or hot shoe.

Though its lens isn't as wide and suffers from many of the same lens artifacts as its competitors, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50 is a good megazoom camera with a lot of features for experiment-minded snapshooters.

Cybershot DSC-H50

 

Sony's new Cyber-shot DSC-H50 has some outstanding features. But it also has a few kinks that may or may not hang you up, depending on how picky you are about certain functions.

Powerful 15x optical zoom Tilting 3-inch LCD screen

Slow startup speed Short battery life

But the DSC-H50 has some shortcomings. The LCD produces a somewhat jumpy image when panning, which I found irksome. Battery life is less than ideal: Our lab tests yielded 291 shots on a charge; in the field, it was noticeably short. While most of the...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50 Review

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50 is a 9 megapixel digital camera equipped with a 15x Carl Zeiss lens, putting it squarely in the super-zoom category. Although not quite as wide-ranging as some of its 18x zoom competitors, the 31-465mm focal range of the...

Targeting those who want better image quality and a broader range of features not to mention lens reach than the typical compact, without going the whole hog and investing in a DSLR, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50 shapes up as a surprisingly...

Sony Cybershot DSC-H50 Review

 

I received the Sony Cybershot DSC-H50 the day before I left for a week-long road trip through the Southwest. I only had time for a cursory review of the manual before I was off and shooting. I had a few challenges with the camera, but considering my...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50 Review

 

The Sony DSC-H50 is an attractive entry into the ultrazoom sweepstakes despite giving up a marginal measure of focal length at each end of the zoom spectrum to most of the other brands in the race. Good color and image quality, good shutter response,...

Good color and image quality, Good shutter response, Many user inputs for image modification, Monitor usable in outdoor light

Stabilization can sometimes unknowingly involve ISO increases, Lens zoom button can be inadvertently activated, Control button hard to activate without also activating adjacent functions
