Sony Cybershot DSC-H5

Some of the best photographs taken in the world are of tiny objects which occupy the entire frame – also known as extreme close ups or macro shots. The more the details visible on the subject, better the picture. Some of them are so detailed that many cannot recognise exactly what has been captured until they are told what it is. More than anything else, people just love close up shots. Which is why superzoom cameras, with their high optical zoom capacity, become famous and sell like hot cakes. The Sony Cybershot DSC-H5 is one such superzoom camera that has earned its share in the market. It is a 7.2mp and 12x optical zoom superzoom camera that comes with a 3-inch large LCD screen.

Design and Functioning

Like any other well made and highly selling superzoom camera in the market, the Sony Cybershot DSC-H5 is made sturdy, even though it is made fully out of plastic. Weighing a considerable 554g, this camera is completely capable of supporting itself. When taking shots using telephoto, however, many experience shaking of hands anyway. To avoid this very issue, the camera is equipped with the SteadyShot function, which is an optical image stabilization function, which makes pictures immune to shake or blur. It comes with completely manual functions like Aperture and Shutter Priority modes, for advanced photography. The DSC-H5 has a bright 3.0” screen with Sony’s Clear Photo LCD Plus technology for bright high contrast viewing -- with a one touch “Play” button that makes it quick and easy to view photos. A new High Sensitivity Mode (ISO 1000) allows the user to shoot with great results in low-light conditions. It comes with 32MB of internal memory and is compatible with Memory Stick PRO Duo and Memory Stick Duo.
