5.0 out of 5 stars Everything I dreamed of, June 1, 2008
This review is from: Sony Cyber-shot DSCH50 9.1 MP Digital Camera with 15x Optical Zoom with Super Steady Shot (Electronics)
This camera was described to me as a "bridge" camera. It is not a point and shoot, and not an SLR. It is a bridge between the two. And, for my money, better than both. Shutter speed, focus points, macros... and my favorite feature is the battery charging mechanism.

One doesnt have to plug in the camera, rather you simply place the battery in a simple cradle that plugs easily into any outlet... even those with little space. Its a quick charge, and works for hours. I never went past full charge in all of my 300+ photo shoot.

My other favorite feature is the pivoting LCD screen. You wouldnt think you would depend on it so much at first, but the second you flip it up to see what you're shooting while low to the ground, and you'll understand perfectly. It helps immeasurably when it comes to close quarters or awkward locations.

The 15X zoom is powerful. Of course, I'm coming off of a 6X zoom, but this picked up kites over 3/4 of a mile away with absolutely no blur. It was beautiful.

In the end, this has to be one of the most powerful and easy to use cameras I've ever used. A great buy! I do not regret my purchase at all
