The H5 is a couple years old now, so take a look at the Sony Cybershot DSC-H50 or HX1, depending on your budget.  This is what we wrote about the H5 when it came out:

Sony pushes a little further, giving their 12x optical zoom camera a nice 7.2 MP sensor, outpacing similar offerings from Canon and Kodak. In addition to beating the competition in the megapixel department, they?ve jammed on a large 3.0 inch LCD screen, easily besting the Kodak Z612 and Canon S3IS as far as display is concerned. With that extra large LCD you?ll be able to get a better preview of those tight zoom shots you?ll be taking. Sony's High Sensitivity (ISO 1000) mode and Clear RAW NR image processing ensure a crisp and blur-less final product. The manual focus and exposure modes give photographers complete control of their camera, allowing for more complex and customized compositions.
