I just bought this one last week and am really amazed at the clarity of pictures that this camera produces. Transferred some of it to my pc and was wonder struck. The 12X zoom allows you to take pictures otherwise you could only imagine of. I took a picture at 12X zoom and those words that aren't visible to the naked eye are also easily captured in the camera. The image stabilization feature really works because even the slightest movement of the hands at full zoom will produce a blurred photo. I got a decent photo at full zoom me not having very stable hands :-) The Carl Zeiss lens is really awesome. One more advantage is that it has internal memory 32MB and whenever you run out of memory stick space, you can also use this internal memory for that extra photos which you would have otherwise missed. I'll follow up this review in more detail after I start using it extensively. It doesn't come with a memory stick and so have ordered one. I'll be receiving it in a couple of days time and after that I'll be exploring the innumerable features of this great camera.


I'm editing this review now. Went on a summer tour to east india and of course my close companion was the Sony-DSCH2.


Simply to compare my old camera Sony-DSC-P72 and this one I asked my dad to carry the old one along in his pouch. After returning from the tour and transferring everything to the pc, I was really amazed at the quality difference. So much life and color on the pics clicked with the h2. And I experimented with a portable tripod (Sony brand) in twilight mode I took pictures of the moon. If anybody wants send me an M2M i'll mail u the photos taken without tripod and with. You can compare and see for yourself. There was so much satisfaction in the final outcome. The flash as I had already said was excellent. Upto 10metres in pitch darkness, the photos have come very clear. Sony claims upto 16m. Will have to try such a long distance yet. Some of the SLR-like features like varying the focus point area were tried out. The same photo taken twice with different focus points looked different in different aspects. Ppl if u r a novice/intermediate photographer and don't want to invest in an dSLR this is just the right one for u. Right size, Right Price, Right quality, Right functionality.


I even tested macro photography from within 5cm range. If you want I can send the sample pics. I'll let the picture do the talking. Just M2M me.
