Sony Cybershot H2 - Carl Zeiss lens

Sony Cybershot H2 - Carl Zeiss lens
According to Steve Digicams: "The most prominent feature of the Sony H2 is its 12x Carl Zeiss zoom lens, with focal length coverage of 36-432mm in 35mm equivalence. Anyone who has used a digicam with a long focal length zoom knows that these lenses really add to the overall "fun factor" of using a camera. But the longer the focal length, the more susceptible images are to blurring from camera shake, requiring the use of a tripod/monopod or a fast shutter speed with high ISO settings to overcome the camera-shake issue."

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2 review conclusion - Steves Digicams
Steve continues: "The auto focus system delivered consistently sharp images. It uses a 3-area multi point system, or you can use a single point and position it virtually anywhere in your composition. With the help of its AF-assist lamp, the Sony Cybershot H2 was able to auto focus very reliably in conditions of low ambient light; in complete darkness, the maximum range of the AF-assist lamp was about 12 feet. AF was effective in low light even in the telephoto range of the Sony H2's zoom lens." You want to learn more about the Sony Cybershot digital camera?

Sony Upgrades Digital Camera

Sony Upgrades Digital Camera is upgrading several of its digital still cameras with higher resolution image sensors.The DSC-W55 and W35 both sport 7.2MP image sensors, which is an upgrade on the 6MP W50 and W30 models currently on sale. Similarly the DSC-S650 and S-700 both offer a 1MP jump over the current 6-mp S600 model.The image resolution bump puts the W35 and W55 at the same level as Sony's W70 model. All three cameras offer 7.2MP resolution while the top-of-the-line W100 model packs an 8.1MP sensor.Other major features remain unchanged. All four cameras have a 3X optical zoom lens, blur-reduction setting and internal memory so some pictures can be taken without a memory card. They all accept Memory Stick Duo-type memory cards.The W35 and W55 will be available in the U.S. for $180 and $200 respectively. Both the current W30 and W50 cost $200, so the prices represent a drop for the former model and a higher-spec at an unchanged price for the latter camera. The S650 will go on sale in the same month for $150 and the S700 will be available from March for $180
