Another Sony camera that deserves mention is the Cybershot DSC-H5. Consider these features:
* 12x (Yes, twelve!) Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar zoom lens
* 3” (230K pixels) LCD screen
* 7.2 megapixel effective resolution
* Sony's Super Steady Shot optical image stabilization
* Auto, Program Auto, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority or Full manual exposure modes
* Multi-pattern, center-weighted or spot metering
These are all features one would expect on a much pricier camera. That Sony could pack them into such a reasonably priced camera is very close to remarkable. If you're looking to step up to a full-featured camera with a long zoom – but don't want to go to a SLR system – consider the DSC-H5.
