ImagingResource have recently published a review of the Sony Cybershot DSC-H2, a 6.0 megapixel CCD sensor point-and-shoot digital camera featuring a 6.0 megapixel CCD sensor, a huge 12x optical zoom (equivalent to 36 – 432mm), and a 2.5″ LCD screen display.
“Typical of consumer digicams, the Sony DSC-H2 does tend to oversharpen its image a bit, but exposure is usually quite good, with or without flash. Sharpness can be adjusted in the menu, as can contrast and saturation, so the user has some control over how the camera renders its images. Actually, “control” is probably the best way to describe the Sony H2, because it offers a very simple interface, yet perhaps the most control over light gathering of any camera in Sony’s lineup. It’s that huge focal range that gives you such a feeling of power: With just the press of a button, you’re suddenly all the way across the house to where junior is making a silly face, and you’re more likely to get a sharp shot with the help of the Super SteadyShot.”
