From the Manufacturer
Carl Zeiss 12x Optical Zoom Lens
For sharp, high-contrast images that take advantage of the DSC-H2's CCD capabilities, a top-quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens design with 12x optical zoom lens provides finely detailed images of distant subjects--with 24x digital zoom for dramatic closeups of your subject.
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.
6.0-Megapixel Super HAD CCD
More megapixels allow you to edit, crop, and make big prints while preserving greater image detail. Sony's advanced Super HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD design allows more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing noise.
High Sensitivity Mode
A new High Sensitivity Mode (ISO 1000) lets you shoot without flash for more natural results in low-light conditions and shoot at higher shutter speed to minimize blur from unsteady hands or fast-moving subjects--and Sony's original Clear RAW NR (Noise Reduction) image processing technology helps suppress the color noise that can accompany high-sensitivity shooting.
2.0-Inch LCD Screen
You can easily compose shots, check results, and read camera menus even in bright sunlight--and a one-touch "Play" button makes viewing your photos quick and simple.
Simple Camera Setup Features
The DSC-H2 allows you to set Color Mode (Standard, Vivid, Natural, Sepia, or Monochrome), adjust image brightness with one-touch simplicity (including EV compensation for shooting into the sun or on cloudy days), and select the image size that's best for the print size you want and the remaining capacity of your camera's 32 MB internal memory or optional Memory Stick Duo media.
Function Guide Text/Icon Display
On-screen, a simple Function Guide text/icon display makes it easy to learn the camera functions that give you greater creative freedom to adjust color sensitivity, brightness, and image size for great shots in a wide range of situations. You'll also have quick reference to camera functions like flash, macro, and self-timer settings.
Creative Manual Exposure Modes
For more creative freedom, the DSC-H2 lets you adjust shutter speed to freeze the action or shoot with long time exposures--and control depth of field with aperture adjustment to concentrate on the foreground or capture "deep-focus" background.
Manual Focus with MF Peaking
In manual focus mode, the 2.0-inch LCD screen of the DSC-H2 highlights an outline of the shooting subject in color so it's easier to make adjustments. Why focus manually? To concentrate on an off-center subject, one face in a crowd, or an unexpected creative choice in a complex scene.
Capture Images In-Camera
With 32 MB Internal Memory, the DSC-H2 allows you to capture shots in-camera for later transfer to PC or Memory Stick media--so even if you forget your flash memory card, you can always get the shot.
52x Smart Zoom Feature
Sony's Smart Zoom feature gives you an amazing ultra-closeup crop on the central portion of interest in your photo while avoiding the image degradation of other digital zooms.
MPEG Movie VX Fine Mode
The DSC-H2 can capture VGA (640 x 480) audio-video clips at high frame rate (up to 30 frames per second)--and new Optical Zoom for Movie provides high-ratio zooming for sports and long-distance subjects and allows you to adjust zoom while taking action shots.
Memory Stick Duo Media
The DSC-H2 has a built-in slot for optional Memory Stick Duo or higher-capacity Memory Stick PRO Duo media--the ultra-compact media for shooting, storing, and sharing your photo images.

This camera lives up to all of the expectations set by these reviews (as well as others) and the reviews on Amazon. I could do a write up, but the reviews posted on the sites above go into far greater detail than I could ever do and show comparison photo's to boot. What I can do is give you my reaction to this camera now that I have it in my hands...
1 - Super easy to use, out of the box experience. Pop in some AA batteries and you'll be shooting photos in just a few seconds.
2 - Speaking of batteries they are the AA batteries you already have in your house. I have kids so I am already using rechargeable batteries.
3 - Image quality is great!
4 - Supplied software is fantastic for storing photos - I love it already.
5 - Fits very nicely in your hands.
6 - Very intuitive controls. You can jump from full auto to full manual with ease.
7 - Very quick shutter lag.
8 - Nice burst mode.
9 - Functional image stabilization
10 - 12x optical zoom is superb; 24x digital zoom actually works with no image degradation.
1 - Low light focusing is too soft. You will need to manually adjust for this in very low light situations (like taking a photo of cereal boxes inside of a kitchen closet with no light on).
2 - Higher ISO settings are too noisy (anything above 200). The built in flash will correct for this in many situations, but not all of them. They could have used better algorithms.
3 - LCD could have been larger, but it is not worth paying extra for (for example the H5).
1 - There have been some reviews here that have lamented the "special" USB connection on the cable.Read more ›
I originally bought the Cannon S2, but in less than 2 weeks it died on me. Before it died, I was very happy with the picture quality, but the Sony H2 is even better.
The Sony H2 also includes several extras that Cannon charges for, like the lens adapter, rechargeable batteries, and the battery charger.
The 12x zoom and the stabilization is what makes this camera great, but it is loaded with other features.
So far I only have three complaints. I found the manual to less than adequate, the menus not as straight forward as other cameras I've owned, and I really wanted to stay with SD cards. Only because I already owned so many.
Note: I am using a SanDisk Pro Duo Memory stick, and it works fine.
Several people complained about the flash on the H1. I've taken half dozen portraits using the flash, and they all look great.
I'm primarily a point and shoot guy, that likes everything automatic, and in the automatic mode things work great, but I occasionally need more options, and this camera has everything.
I don't know why Sony went from a 2.5" LCD on the H1 to a 2" LCD on this model, but the 2" is much better than the 1.8" on the Cannon.
I may add more in a couple months.
The macro setting works exremely well on the Sony H2 capable of taking pictures as close as 1 inch away . In order to get this close with my DSLR I would have to buy a macro lens costing $200-300 .
I constantly print out 8x10 prints from this camera and they turn out crisp and sharp with highly accurate and rich colors .
The only area were my DSLR preformed better was at high ISO settings . The H2 had more noise in the pictures at high ISO . This can easily be fixed by inexspensive noise reduction software .
The auto setting works great but dont be afraid to experiment with the manual settings . The metering in the manual setting will let you know if your picture is under or over exposed , so you can correct the shutter speed or aperture as needed.
Dont fall for the hype of entry level DSLRs like I did . I spent $799 on an entry level DSLR . The Sony H2 was only $350 and has more features and higher quality pictures .
