I love this camera. The picture quality is great and I love how many features it has. I wanted a high megapixel point and shoot with lots of zoom...This is it. It is easy to setup, partly because it automatically finds the right setting you need for where you are. I do not like the zoom button itself as it is on top around the button to take the photo instead of on the back where your thumb usually sits, and the screen does look a bit fuzzy when I'm inside, but the pictures still turn out great, so other than that, I have no complaints. This is so much better than my previous 6 megapixel camera I had.
My first digital camera back in 2006 was a Sony Cybershot, and I absolutely loved it. I broke it last year during my senior year of college, and wound up getting persuaded by a salesperson to get an Olympus Stay Tough to prevent breaking another camera. I absolutely hated how it takes indoor pictures; all grainy and the shutter time is very slow. After doing a LOT of research, I finally decided to go back to Sony and purchased the H70. I have not seen a bad review on this camera anywhere. I tried it out over to my brother birthday and could not be happier with the crisp, clear pictures it produced. I got some awesome action shots both inside and out by the pool. I'm never leaving Sony again!!
*Crisp, clear pictures
*10 x zoom
*Cropping feature in the camera. You can zoom in and crop a picture just how you want it.
*Burst Mode- Allows you to hold down the shutter and it takes multiple pictures to get just the right action shot you want.
*In low light setting, the camera automatically takes two versions of the picture with different lighting so that you get the best picture possible.
*Great battery life.
*Panoramic setting is great!
*Motion stabilizer feature
*Includes the wires necessary to show your pictures on a T.V.
*Super user-friendly (even my grandmother uses a Sony because of how user-friendly it is)
* A little bit bulkier than other Sony cybershots
* Slight delay between taking pictures, could be faster
i'm still learning this camera, i pretty much love it however!! i read many reviews before purchase, and those who 'stank' on it for various reasons, complaints have proven largely unfounded to me! one complaint was you could not eliminate the beep noise, e.t.c. the camera makes! NOT TRUE! i believe some who have made these complaints are somewhat technically challenged as regards to using menus, e.t.c.
another complaint was it takes a moment to complete the picture upon pressing the shutter! this IS somewhat of a valid complaint. all in all, a GREAT, small, light camera that takes GOOD pictures! i particularly love the videos it takes as well as the panoramic feature!! very easy camera to use, all the way around! i shot several videos from a private plane and was highly impressed with the video/s it took. pretty sharp pictures when taking moving stills, too! camera does not SEEM to be a battery 'hog'!! -the PMB software takes a little bit of getting used to...a good, flexible, utilitarian camera for the money!!
This is the camera for you if you want something a little upgraded from the Sony Cybershot DSC W290, but don't want to learn a whole new camera system as it's pretty much the same operation wise, but has more zoom. Pretty much the same compact size makes it easy to have with you at all times.
This Sony H70 is the ulitmate camera! Would buy again and again. If you're looking for a very good camera, this is the one to get. It has 10X zoom and you can zoom in on the pictures even after you've taken them. Shows very high detail.
Panoramic view is immaculant. Took a movie of my windmill in motion and the wheel of the windmill was moving very fast. In movie review mode, I can pause the camera and it looks like the windmill wheel is stopped. You can clearly see all 12 blades on the wheel and no blur whatsoever!!! Truly amazing. And I hooked it up with cable supplied to my Song 52 HD t.v. via USB port and all the pictures pop up on the t.v. screen.
The pictures show up in HD and are really eye popping. You can also hook up to a VCR and record the movie you made with the camera on VHS tape.
This was an excellent choice!
I needed to have a camara that had a good quality picture and it proved to be of great quality, it is light in weight and it works very good on the tripod. For the money I spent, I wish I would have found this camara first.
good camera for faster & easy take pictures ..
lightweight design and good features and photo quality for this value.
this sony camera is my 3rd i've owned and it is so far my favorite. the 10x zoom and the numerous features make taking pictures easy and care free. the panoramic feature is my favorite. the color is not what i really wanted but for the price i purchased the camera, it was a non issue. you will truly enjoy this camera
Light and compact, but has a 10x zoom that is a real plus.Is styled like other Sony cameras,but has some new features that makes it easier to access and use.For the casual picture taker, this is a great camera with all the features you need.I'm happy with it,and should last for years,as my last Sony has.
this camera is bang for your buck all the way! it has features and takes great quality photos. buy this camera and your in business. sony is one of the top manufacturers of quality products, to no surprise.
