Reviews of Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H3
Reviewed on 2008-08-06
We loved the Sony DSC-V3 camera released back in late 2004, and had hopes that the new H3 would be an upgrade to this fine camera, noting the increased zoom range (up to a whopping 10x) and a pixel count nudged slightly up to eight megapixel resolution...

The Cyber-shot DSC-H3 was first announced back in August 2007 and is the latest addition to Sonys High Zoom range of compact cameras - and something of a departure (previous models were all considerably larger SLR-style affairs). This baby-brothe...

2007 was an interesting year for the digital camera industry as a whole. The reason I say this is because that year saw the introduction of a new breed of camera. We saw a cross breed between a compact point-and-shoot camera and a DSLR camera. The resu...

Despite its name, the H3 has no bearing on the über-camera from medium format gurus, Hasselblad. It is in fact a clipped version of the H7 giving the same 8Mp resolution with a slightly smaller 10x optical zoom and creative control. Sony DSC-H3 Specif...

LCD screen too small, No compression options, Limited manual options
The march of the compact mega zooms continues. Sony recently introduced a very small 8-megapixel digicam with a 10x optical zoom and optical image stabilization. Like the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 and Canon PowerShot SX100 IS this camera is really target...

This is one of several cameras that nestle in between the low-priced compact segment and the entry-level digital SLRs. In theory, they have the compacts fuss-free ease of use while leaning towards the DSLR in quality, enhanced zoom lens and a greater...

10x zoom, slim build, lots of features, nice colour balance, fast
Noisy shots above ISO 200, pictures a touch soft The Final Word The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H3 is a great ultra-zoom camera. Its compact build makes it ideal for travellers and it has a boatload of features along with capturing some fairly good shots.
As companies move away from megapixels as the defining feature of their cameras, things such as optical image stabilisation, face detect and larger zooms begin to take centre stage. Sonys latest advanced camera, the Cyber-shot DSC-H3 is a prime exampl...

Sony has packed an optically-stabilised Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 10x optical zoom lens and 8-megapixel imager into a compact body in its new DSC-H3 Cyber-shot camera. Small and light for a long-zoom camera, the H3 is well designed. Neither optical nor e...
