DigitalCameraInfo have published their review of the Sony Cyber-shot H5, a point-and-shoot digital camera with 7.0 megapixel (6.0 mp for H2) CCD sensor, a huge 12x optical zoom (equivalent to 36 – 432mm), and 2.5″ LCD screen display.
“With its $499 retail price, the Sony H5 is priced right on par with its competitors. Several other manufacturers are offering similar ultra-zoom cameras at this price point. There is always some give and take, though. Other models offer better burst modes–but no other small ultra-zoom model currently provides a 3-inch LCD screen. The value is always in the eye of the consumer.”
