Customer Reviews

If you don't have the flash on, then the next shot delay is very fast.
Elana Gabriele
I have taken a ton of pictures and very few have been slightly blurry, most come out clear with good color.

It takes wonderful pictures and has a great zoom, but is also very easy to use and understand.

I exchanged a Canon SX100 for this camera, and I am so glad I did. This camera is lightening fast with flash shots (compared to the VERY SLOW Canon). Indoor pictures are great as well as outdoor. I have taken a ton of pictures and very few have been slightly blurry, most come out clear with good color. Flash looks natural, as opposed to the canon which would either over or under expose shots. I love that the camera is compact and small enough to fit in a regular camera case, but yet still has the long reach 10x optical zoom. I also love the 3" LCD.
Pros:
-Compact with 10x optical zoom
-3" LCD
-Good indoor photos
-No delay in between shots
-Battery meter always showing
-Slide show with music is too cool!

Cons: (Very minor and do not take away from camera at all)
-No automatic lens cover (has lens cap)
-No zoom in video mode (although if I want great video, I'll use my video camera)
-Comes with Shoulder strap - I prefer wrist strap (Fixed by ordering a wrist strap off ebay for $2)

If you want a compact camera with a lot of zoom and good quality pictures, definitely go with this one. The only other cameras that have same features: Canon SX100 (too slow between flash, indoor shots are not good), Panasonic TZ3 (reviews say picture quality not good), and Canon G9 (only has 6x zoom and has a hefty price tag). To me, the Sony is the way to go for the average shooter who mainly shoots in automatic mode but occasionally plays with other settings. I have owned for about a week, if anything changes, I will update my review, but so far - GREAT!!!!

I've had this camera for about three weeks and have taken several hundred pictures with it. It takes excellent pictures with amazing detail and color. Despite the fact that I am often photographing moving children, fewer than 5% of the pictures have been blurry. This camera's ability to take excellent action shots with no blur is one of its strongest features, in my opinion. A second superior feature of the camera, relative to the last camera I bought recently and returned (Canon Powershot SX 100IS) is the fast next shot delay. This camera is ready to take another picture, even after using the flash, relatively quickly. I say "relatively" because there is still a delay, but compared to the sluggish Canon, it is a great improvement. If you don't have the flash on, then the next shot delay is very fast. Also, the time the camera is ready to take the first picture from the time I take it out of the camera bag is quite short.

I have tried taking close up pictures of jewelry with the macro setting, which is only a one-button press. I thought it did a pretty decent job, although I did have to play around with the lighting to make sure that the flash didn't get reflected.

Another superior feature of this camera, relative to the Canon mentioned above, is the operation of the zoom. I find that I can control the exact amount of zoom with the button, whereas with the Canon, the zoom seemed to jump discontinuously.

For the amount of power (meaning the 10x zoom) and precision of this camera, it is very light (under a pound) and compact. I was able to take a whole series of shots at the playground using just one hand with no trouble, and the weight of the camera did not cause my hand to get tired.

Verified Purchase
Tired of carrying around a much larger SLR camera with interchangeable lenses and small view screen I found the H10 a very nice replacement. The 10X zoom is more then enough for my travel picture needs. In Alaska I zoomed in on a bald eagle resting on a distant electrical tower. The large 3" viewing screen allows me to compose my picture without wearing any glasses. Mode selector knob easily allows me to find the right picture taking mode. Virtually no shot delay and multiple shooting mode works machine gun fast. Steady shot is always on, removing any moves I may make and later blaming on the camera. Taking pictures at twilight and night resulted in very high quality pictures. Issues? With a 4gb memory chip I tend to overshoot, bringing my battery to exhaustion. No problem, added an extra battery and off I go. Yes you can read where other reviewers will complain about what the H10 will not do. Then again, if you take the time to fully read the manual several times, practice with the camera and learn from your mistakes, you will find the camera is fine. It's the operator making the mistakes. Nice job Sony!

PROS: Big screen, great zoom, lightweight, conventional cap, great flash, many features even fancy ones (music and so).
CONS: None.

It is a good camera, something not too pro, but with so many features that you'll feel like a pro. Specially the zoom (10x, wow!). The big screen, despite delicate, helps to detect blurs that cannot be easily appreciated in smaller screens (it gets greasy easily, so use a plastic screen protector). However, I would qualify the zoom, at its full length, with an 8, so far. Sometimes it is blurry (very little, but is), and sometimes not (in similar conditions shots), so I guess that it is not a 100% steady, but is ok considering its competitors (minor zoom and even more sensitive to movement). Just hold it firmly.

The lack of built-cap I cannot be sure if it is one of the "cons" because I had two Canon before this Sony and both suffered damage in its cap at any point (It did not close properly, it bended, did not open, etc.), so an old fashioned cap is ok as long as you fix a thread (are many on the market) to avoid losing it.

I like the flash also. It is strong, long and has different ways to use it: there is one that allows illuminating the whole scene, instead of just the proximity, so it is very useful for indoor pictures. You'll get beautifully illuminated interiors, with or without people. This is different from my previous Canon cameras.

It takes time to become a pro in the use of all its features. It has plenty. If you just want to focus and shot, then buy something less expensive. The features are promisingly great, but I am not so fast using it, I take my time. If you are going to a trip, is better that you become more than familiar with this little thing before so it can do a great job.
