The Sony CyberShot DSC-H5 is truly a great camera. I have used many digital cameras before but this one truly takes the cake. It has a lot of cool tools in it. I personally love the feature were you can crop the photos you take within the the camera itself. Its pretty light weight but the only thing i'm not sure about is the value for money. This camera is a bit on the pricey side… Read Full Review

Good camera but, although it looks to be a tough design a small knock can cause expensive problems. Overall quality of the photography is good though but the more modern (and basic) cameras have features this camera could be benefit from. Overall a good camera for 2006… Read Full Review

Lightweight and small enough to fit in your pocket (If you take it out of the hard case which I purchased with the camera). Takes small movies too, but if you are looking for a video camera, unfortunately the Sony CyberShot DSC-H5 is not it… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/11/2006 by Reviewer100 (25 reviews written)

The Sony CyberShot DSC-H5 is a digital camera for amateur photographers, who want the features and performance of an SLR, but not the price or bulk of one. Has fully automatic modes for when you 'just want to take a photo', plus many manual options for budding Lord Litchfield's.

This is now my third camera, and given my budget and need for a good zoom (as a safari holiday is approaching), this was the only real choice. I opted for the all-black version, as the silver plastic looked a bit… Read Full Review
