Sony Cybershot H20

B+
We've given the H20 a grade of B+.

Editor's Review

The H20 is Sony's entry into the fun-zoom category, sporting a 10.1 megapixel sensor, 10x zoom with optical image stabilization, 3-inch LCD display, and 720p HD video mode. It's tough to out-do Panasonic in this category (we love their ZS3), but it sells well, and the user reviews we've seen are overwhelmingly positive. Generally speaking, Sony is perhaps best-known for eye-catching, ultra-thin point-and-shoots, but lately their best performers have been these bulky, vaguely ugly H-series cameras. Without having tried it ourselves, it looks like a solid purchase, especially if you're already committed to Sony's Memory Stick format.

Sharpness (Connie — 10/01/2010)
I have managed to get good pictures but only when I have taken 30 pics to obtain 3 good ones. I find the images are not sharp and so printing is not successful. Every now and then a perfect one is obtained but I have no idea what I did differently. Does the type of memory stick make a difference? Should I change the resolutions? Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance.....

Great pictures - Recommended! (Jordan — 01/03/2010)

I absolutely love this camera!

I first started out liking the sony cybershot w290.
It seems like a nifty point and shoot for 200 bucks.
But the only problem it seemed to have a photo quality, which (in my opinion) is the most imortant on a camera.

So I left that camera and went to a cannon superzoom (cant remember the name, but it was 10 mp, 10x zoom.)
It seemed like a good pick, but when compared to the sony h20, the h20 had better images, more features, and hd video.
The choice was obvious, and I picked the h20.

I took some amazing photos at a waterfall, and the flash was really nice.
It's really not too bulky (at least for me), and I'm pretty sure sony was trying to make this camera look like a mini-dslr.
Or at least professional.

The only problem I had with this camera, was that it tends to have a hard time focusing on subjects, but this is rather rare.

Compared to the lumix zs1 (which my dad has), this one seems better (besides the wide-angle lens).

I totally recommend this camera for any one looking for a compact superzoom for a decent price :)
