Picture quality
Camera type *
There are a number of common types of digital cameras: compact cameras, bridge cameras, mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras (MILC) and single lens reflex (SLR) cameras. Bridge cameras 'bridge the gap' between the low-end compact and high-end professional (SLR) cameras. Also MILCs populate this mid-segment by combining the larger sensors and interchangeable lenses of DSLRs with the live-preview viewing system of compact cameras.
Compact camera
Megapixel *
The number (in millions) of light-sensitive picture elements known as pixels actually used by the camera's image sensor (CCD) to record light, and which are reflected to the final number of recorded pixels stored on the memory card.
5.1 MP
Image sensor size *
Sensor type *
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Lens system
Optical zoom *
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Digital zoom *
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
0.236 - 2.83" (6 - 72 mm)
Filter size
A filter is a screen, plate, or layer of a substance which absorbs light or other radiation or selectively absorbs some of its components e.g. a UV filter to reduce UV light. Filters come in various sizes.
2.28" (5.8 cm)
Light exposure
ISO sensitivity *
A measure of a photographic film's sensitivity to light.

It allows images to be printed directly from digital cameras to a printer, without having to connect the camera to a computer using common connectivity like USB or Bluetooth.

With a massive 12x optical zoom lens equivalent to 36-432mm on a 35mm camera, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H1 is Sonys representative in the ultra-zoom class of compact digital cameras. The DSC-H1 has a 5.1 megapixel sensor and features Sonys image stab...
Bottom line The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H1 is Sonys first attempt at an ultra-zoom digital camera, and on the whole it is a very successful one. Its easy to see why - the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H1 is stylish, well-built and takes good 5 megapixel photographs that prod...
Having been using my Panasonic DMC-FZ5 and having used the Canon PowerShot S2 IS (both with 5 Megapixels, 12x optical zoom and optical image stabilization), I was eager to try the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H1. It has the same kind of major features (12x opt...
the DSC-H1 is a worthy competitor in the mega zoom ranks.
This bulky model features a 12X optical zoom with optical image stabilization, but overall image quality was mediocre.

The Sony DSC-H1 is an ultra-zoom camera with optical-stabilization that somewhat resembles other cameras in this class. Its main weakness is purple fringing which shows up in areas of contrast, specially in night-photography. For better photo quality...
The Cyber-shot DSC-H1 ($499) is Sonys first true ultra zoom camera (the DSC-F828 doesnt count in my opinion). Featuring a 5.1 Megapixel CCD, 12X optical zoom lens with image stabilization, a large 2.5" LCD display, and full manual controls, the...
The DSC-H1 has a silver plastic exterior with a rubber-wrapped grip area, while the lens barrel is metallic and finished in a dark silver.

Bad Slight overall softness when viewed at 100%, Some focus hunting at long end of the zoom (especially in movie mode), Image stabilization doesnt seem quite as effective as competition, Small (though bright and clear) viewfinder, High default contrast and sh...
