Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H70 review

 

The 16-megapixel Cyber-shot DSC-H70 is the least expensive of Sony's 2011 compact megazooms and offers little more than a resolution bump from the camera it's replacing, 2010's 14-megapixel DSC-H55 . The extra resolution doesn't make the photos any...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H70 has a compact, lightweight design and good features and photo quality for the money.

The DSC-H70's 16-megapixel photo resolution doesn't improve photo quality from its 14-megapixel predecessor, and its shooting performance is slow.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H70 is a very good basic compact megazoom, if not the best value.

Solid camera for candid shots

 

Why did I pick this camera?I had points to use toward a Sony product, so that steered me to the brand initially and from there I did my share of research on the various models and looking at them in stores. My last Sony (a DSC-W5) had ...

10x zoom, slightly larger size so you actually know you are holding a camera

Although this camera is on the slow side...

 

All in all this is a pretty good camera.

Light weight and easy to use this camera takes a good clear shot. Its loaded with options and settings.

this camera is slow from shot to shot I believe i read somewhere its like 4 sec. Those seconds count.

The camera worked great until it failed within 2 months

 

This camera failed within a month of owning it. I had it for less than two months before the lense failed and the camera wouldn't even turn on. I never dropped it and took very good care of it for the short period I had it, but it still failed. I got...

photos are too bright, not the greatest for sunsets, bad warranty service, failed on me fast

WOW!

 

What a fun camera! It takes great photos, great videos, it knows when you smile! This is an amazing camera, in my pocketbook all the time. It's a little tricky to set up, because it does so much, but well worth the time to learn. My son has two...

I think this camera could cook dinner
