DPInterface 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.
“In terms of performance, the H5 did better than the Canon S3 IS and Kodak Z612 but lagged slightly behind Panasonic’s cameras. Overall image quality was good and impressed me much and I’d be more than happy to recommend this camera to anyone who wants a big zoom camera with manual controls. Despite that, the Sony H5 does not have the ultimate control or super speed which may put off sports photographers or speed fanatics (like me). Oh yes, one more thing – is the H5 a better deal than the H2? It definitely is.”
