The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 is an attractive camera but it stuck me as designed on a computer, rather than sculpted in clay. And a good thing, too, because as I used the H5, I enjoyed it.

Just an excellent product. Note the live histogram bottom right of the LCD. It runs on 2 AA batteries. Great camera for under 50 dollars. You can turn it off, but then it’s not a feature any more. The ISO 80 and photos not surprisingly look about the same. Oddly enough, the one set of controls I wanted to find by touch on the Sony DSC-H5, the four-way navigation controller, was hard to find by touch because it was as smooth as the rest of the back panel.

Bundles that include this product. Rumor has it that the black one is faster. The Single AF mode only focuses when you halfway press the shutter release, while the monitor AF mode is always trying to focus. The EVF here is pretty good, withpixels.
