Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewVery Good

  • THE GOOD

    12X zoom; image stabilization; solid selection of accessories.

  • THE BAD

    Large body; lots of noise at ISO 800 and above; no hotshoe.

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    Advanced amateurs who find dSLRs too bulky will like the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-H5's versatility but lament the noise at higher ISOs.

DSC-H5 is a truly good bridge camera

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I bought the DSC-H5 to replace a simple point and shoot I owned. I had been a photo enthusiast years ago and owned a couple of 35mm SLR cameras though I was never an expert or anything. But the DSLR world was just too expensive for someone like me. So, I looked for a bridge camera that would still take good shots in a point and shoot fashion but leave me some additional control over the shutter and exposure so I could venture into the digital photo world. The H5 is not the latest, but just an old enough model that it was reasonably priced with plenty of features.
All in all, for the price, this is an excellent little camera and takes really outstanding photographs without costing $500-1000 for a true DSLR.

Great camera , easy to use

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I have used one of the first Sony cameras with floppy disc for years. still works great. even outdated it still gives great performance so I am sold on Sony.

during a recent trip to Colorado to visit my daughter. they noticed my antique that I was taking pictures with. they decided to upgrade me with an Olympus for a Christmas present.

the camera takes great photos but is difficult for me to browse around different picture situations.

I want a quality camera that was easy for an amateur to use and still get great pictures. My DH5 accomplishes this, and even tho I bought a used one, it was in mint, like new condition. I would reccomend one of these for great photo opportunities.

Great camera for under 50 dollars. Big time Hit in the Score Dept.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I got this camera used and I must say I am a bit impressed with the ease of use and features. I use cameras for work as a real estate professional and personally for fun here in the North West United States. This camera has good quality photos and lens quality. That's a plus. Better the lens quality the easier the digital process is in transfer. Higher resolution and lower pixel. So. One . I scored cheap a good Carl lens on a sony cybershot. like it. Used perfect for my work. and Fun. Thanks.

Great pictures.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Always a Sony person. I have good luck with my Sony products. It's easy to use. Great pictures. The only thing I don't like is the camera body feels a little cheap. I have owned other Sony camera's and the camera bodies were built stronger. I think its just as good as others.
