Sony Dsc-H3 Black Digital Camera
From the Manufacturer
Longer zoom, smaller size. Sony puts 10x optical zoom in the palm of your hand. With compact body design, 8.1-megapixel resolution, and a top-quality Carl Zeiss lens, the Cyber-shot DSC-H3 packs more photo opportunities in a small size. Advanced Sports Mode (up to 1/2000 second) catches fast action. And Face Detection detects up to eight faces in a picture, so everyone will look their best. HD Output provides spectacular photo viewing on your Sony Bravia and other compatible HDTV screens, and the Sony Double Anti-Blur Solution combines Super SteadyShot optical image stabilization with High Sensitivity (ISO 3200) for crisp imaging in low light.
10x Zoom in a Sleek Compact Body
Sony radically redesigned the positioning of key camera components to fit a powerful 10x optical zoom capability into a compact design that's easy to carry anywhere. The grip fits firmly into your hand, the lens ring adds a high-performance feel--and the top-mounted Wheel Dial lets you adjust shooting modes faster.
High-Power Carl Zeiss 10x Optical Zoom
A superb lens for bringing long-distance subjects up close, the pro-quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens design of the DSC-H3 provides 10x optical zoom design--with 20x digital zoom to enlarge the center portion of the picture so you see even more detail.
8.1-Megapixel Super HAD CCD
More megapixels give you more detail and definition for editing, cropping, and making large digital prints. Sony's advanced Super HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD design allows more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing noise.
Advanced Sports Mode
To capture fast-moving subjects in split-second detail, the DSC-H3 combines high shutter speed (up to 1/2000 second) with Continuous AF and predictive focus control that tracks moving subjects and forecasts their position during the interval between shutter release and image capture--a great way to catch the perfect moment in sports, children's games, pet tricks, and more.
Because the face makes the photo, Sony has created Face Detection technology that recognizes up to eight faces in a photo and automatically controls focus, exposure, color, and flash to bring out the best in everyone. Unlike some competitive systems, Sony Face Detection makes skin tones look more natural and reduces red-eye with pre-strobe flash.
With direct HD output to spectacular Sony Bravia and other compatible HDTV screens, you can view DSC-H3 still photos in high definition clarity and detail. Optional HD solutions include a Cyber-shot cradle/charger with component cable output and high-speed Photo Printers that make 4-by-6-inch prints in about 45 seconds. (Cradle/charger and printer sold separately)
Powerful, Versatile Flash
With a flash powerful enough to illuminate subjects up to 23 feet away, the DSC-H3 opens up new opportunities for flash photography--including dimly lit interiors and outdoor shots at twilight. Auto Daylight Synchro provides effective fill-in flash illumination for backlit subjects--and Macro Flash lets you take ultra-close-up shots with optimal exposure and minimal "whiteout" effect.
Super SteadyShot Optical Image Stabilization
Other image stabilization systems crop in to compensate for "camera shake"--but with the Super SteadyShot system, optical sensors detect camera movement and send correcting signals to a stabilization lens that allows even ultra-long-distance digital photos to capture more detail with less camera-shake distortion.
High Sensitivity Mode
With Super SteadyShot image stabilization to minimize blur, High Sensitivity Mode (ISO 3200) lets the DSC-H3 shoot effectively in low light without flash to preserve the mood--and Sony's original Clear RAW NR (Noise Reduction) image processing technology helps suppress the color noise that can accompany high-sensitivity shooting.
HD Slide Show with Music
It's the high-definition viewing experience that makes photos come alive on compatible HDTV screens, accompanied by your choice of visual effects and any of four preset musical selections stored in memory or your favorite MP3 tunes downloaded from PC to your camera for use as background music.
Because an off-center subject can make your shot more interesting, the DSC-H3 can measure autofocus precision at 9 points on your screen--giving you greater creative freedom to compose your image.
Powered by the exclusive Sony Bionz high-speed processing engine, D-Range Optimization preserves image data in bright highlights and reveals more detail in shadows or backlit areas--for great results even in difficult lighting conditions.
The DSC-H3 lets you add creative effects to photos after you shoot--including soft edge filter to soften backgrounds, cross filter to place starry "dazzles" at highlight points, partial color filter to mute surrounding colors, even fish-eye filter to create interesting fish-eye lens effects.
In-Camera Red-Eye Reduction
Irritating "glowing eyes" can ruin even the most creative photos--so the DSC-H3 gives you in-camera correction at the touch of a button to reduce lingering red-eye effect that other systems might miss.
2.5-Inch LCD Screen, Simple Controls
The DSC-H3 provides a large, bright LCD screen--plus simple camera menus, a Home button for quick access to necessary functions, and a simple Function Guide that displays menu information to make it easier for beginners to learn camera features.
Wheel Dial for Manual Exposure Modes
For more creative freedom, a simple wheel-dial control lets you quickly change camera settings in manual modes (shutter speed priority, aperture priority, manual exposure) and also control ISO sensitivity, focus area, and exposure value. In play mode, the wheel dial provides a quick way to view your next or previous shot.
31 MB Internal Memory
The DSC-H3 allows you to capture a limited number of shots in-camera for later transfer to PC or Memory Stick Duo media--so even if you forget your flash memory card, you can always get the shot.
Up to 51x Smart Zoom Feature
Sony's Smart Zoom feature lets you crop in close on the central portion of interest in your photo while avoiding the image degradation of other digital zooms--with 17x HD Smart Zoom function at 1,920 x 1,080 resolution for 16:9 widescreen display, 51x Smart Zoom function at VGA resolution.
MPEG Movie VX Fine Mode
The DSC-H3 can capture VGA (640 x 480) audio-video clips at high frame rate (up to 30 frames per second).
Stamina Battery Power
The DSC-H3 provides up to 330 shots with a fully charged NP-BG1 Lithium Ion battery--enough shooting capacity to cover a long weekend or a whole vacation.

Sony DSC-H3 digital camera, NP-BG1 rechargeable battery, BC-CSG battery charger, USB and AV multi-connector cable, power cord, shoulder strap, lens cap, lens cap, strap, lens hood, lens adaptor ring, CD-ROM software. Note: No Memory Stick DUO media or adaptors are included.

Now for the preformance. It's great! I have played around with it all day and it takes great pictures! The zoom is wonderful. The pictures are very crisp and the colors are natural looking. The camera is also very easy to use. Basically the camera its self tells you what every thing is for.
It also has a great feture that will allow you to take 3 pictures at a time so you can get those hard to hold still toddlers!
I'm not a proffesional, but I do love to take pictures of my baby and this camera allows me to take great pictures.
Still lovin it! I've had the camera for a few weeks and played around with it a ton. I haven't been able to take a bad picture. I kove this camera. It would be a great buy for any skill level.
I especially love the ISO (low light) setting that you use without a flash. They usually come out better than using the flash and it doesn't cause a glare that a flash can cause (depending on what you are taking a picture of), and you don't have to blind the people with flashes. They won't even know you are taking a picture.
My other favorite setting is the Macro setting. You can take great close-ups on this setting, and the detail is wonderful!
I have tons of great pictures thanks to my new camera! I have no complaints, and I would recommend it to anyone!
With the eight meg resolution and the 10X optical zoom ( 38mm to 380mm effective range ) this camera more than fills the bill.
The images are sharp and have that wonderful 'Sony Color' plus the IS and face recognition....wow. The wide range of 100 to 3200 ISO, the on board strobe has a greater range that I have seen on other small cameras and it handles very well. Three friends have looked and handled my H3 and went out and bought their own. How much of a review is that ?!?
I am a very pleased purchaser,
