I bought this to supplement by DSLR Sony when traveling and I could not carry the DSLR. I used it recently during a trip to Virginia where I got great shots in Colonial Williamsburg and in Shenandoah National Park. I have to remember that it has limitations, but for a first timer or as an easily transported substitute I've been very pleased. The sharpness of the pictures rivals my main camera.

I bought this câmera for my sister and got to use it for 20 days during my stay on NYC.
During this time I came to hate the absurd shutter lag.
The quality of the pictures is good, it is very small and light but the shutter lag just kills the product.
I have a Canon (5 or 6 years old already) and it a lot better on the overall.
I also didn't like the controls that much.

Comments about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H200 Digital Camera:

I love the camera, it is very easy to use and with great features. I didn't give 5 starts because it uses reusable batteries, and in my olin, this is the only downside.

I bought this camera because I wanted a compact point and shoot that I could grab when I didn't have time to set up and focus my Canon. I have been very pleased with the pictures I have gotten with this camera.

Excellent

By Mike

from Boston

Comments about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H200 Digital Camera:

Bought this for my mother for Christmas. She says the lens cap falls off at odd times, but enjoys using it. Google pictures, easy to use, and won't eat batteries too much. Since she has had it she's made multiple blown up pics and has no issues. It's faster on average than most point and shoots (after warm up) with better sensor and glass.
I recommend this for just what she uses it for; good quality pictures with out the hassle of changing lenses or setting up hot buttons etc.
