Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55 review: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55

 

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55

Compact, lightweight design; good features for the money; capable of snapping photos with excellent quality.

Slow shooting performance.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55 is a compact megazoom camera that is capable of taking some excellent photos, just at a leisurely pace, but at a good price.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55 Review

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55 is a new travel-zoom camera, boasting a 10x optical lens with a focal range of 25-250mm and Optical Steady Shot image stabilisation. Other highlights of the Sony H55 a 14.1 megapixel sensor, 3 inch LCD screen, 720p HD video...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55 is one of the more sophisticated big (or 'high') zoom compacts out there at the moment. For us though it doesn't quite trump the 14 megapixel Canon PowerShot SX210 IS though for both results and positive (and moreover fun)...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55 Review

 

The Cyber-shot DSC-H55 is a compact zoom shooter from Sony. I was asked to choose between this not-so-new model and one of their latest compact Cyber-shots, the T99 to bring to our Vietnam trip as our secondary camera. I chose the H55 simply because I...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55 Review

 

In my opinion, the H55 is a little pricey, but I liked it and I had fun shooting with it. Overall, the H55 did a good job for me and with the exception of its abysmal shot-to-shot times I have no major complaints about the camera. The H55 is obviously...

Easy to use, Compact, First rate optics, Excellent image quality, Very good feature set

Slow - especially shot to shot, No optical viewfinder, Battery life could be better, Pricey

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55

 

Released in February 2010, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55 is a compact super zoom, or, if you prefer, travel zoom, with a 10x optical range, 14 Megapixel CCD sensor and 3 inch LCD display. It shares the same body shape, lens and some features of the...

Stylish body and great handling ; Dual-mode video stabilization ; Noiseless optical video zoom ; Full manual control ; Sweep panorama

Slow continuous shooting ; Slow flash recycle time ; Histogram linked to brightness control ; Proprietary port and connector

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55 compact camera

 

For those looking for the one easy-to-use point-and-shoot compact that (almost) does it all, the DSC-H55 from Sony might just fit the bill. The headline spec is impressive: 14.1-megapixels effective resolution, a 10x optical zoom stretching from...

Capable, well-constructed and fairly priced addition to the ranks of big zoom, high resolution models, good edge to edge sharpness at maximum 25mm wide angle

Fails to outshine the immediate competition

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55 is fairly priced, delivers sharply focused, evenly exposed images and provides the user with a broader degree of creative scope than most compacts with lesser zooms.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55

 

Not many compact-zoom cameras would fall in this price range, even if they do, they would not be as feature-rich as this Sony.

Good color reproduction ; Above average details and sharpness ; 10x optical zoom ; Less visibile distortion at wide angle (25mm) ; Very effective image stabilization

Slow shot-to-shot performance ; Image quality above ISO400 is unimpressive ; Average HD video

A good affordable camera that offers long zoom, rich feature list and HD video recording. The Sony DSC-H55 shots above average image quality but falls short of speed.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55 review

 

Dressed in the complete black body, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55 has a front metallic body, and its sides and back covered with plastic. It is not as sleek and sexy as the Cyber-shot T-series nor as compact as the W-series, but it looks sturdy and...

Well priced and with competitive image quality, but in other respects it can't compete with cameras costing just a little more

Review of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55

With its solid but unspectacular performance, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55 is not great value at £239. Its redeeming feature, however, is the sweep panorama mode which is fun and a doddle to use.
