Camera Review: Cyber-shot DSC-H527242679481Sony CybershotDSC-H5I was on my vacation, cooking my family breakfast when my phone rang. It was my editor from PopPhoto.com touching base with me. He asked about the cameras that I was using and reviewing and I told him that I loved the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10 (Click here to see this review) but hated the Cyber-shot DSC-H5. Well, after sleeping on it for a few nights I've decided that hate may be a little strong. I think a better description would be that I have a love/hate relationship with this camera. With the H5, there really is no middle ground because the features are either wonderful or horrible. I had to wonder how one company could design two cameras that are so diametrically opposed. There are many features that I truly loved about this camera, but others that caused me total frustration. And unfortunately, those that caused frustration are some of the most important in making images. Hands Feel & Primary Features: The H5 (street $385) is a 7MP camera that reminds me of the old Bronica medium format cameras. It has a long, sweeping pentaprism-style bump that houses the Electronic View Finder (EVF) and under this, it has a gentle curve that fits your left hand well and is filled with the Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 12x optical zoom lens (36mm-432mm f/2.8-3.7 35mm equivalent) that incorporates Sony's optical image stabilization system. Holding the camera in your hands, you see how large and comfortable the hand grip is. The shutter release is big and covered in highly polished chrome that begs your finger to touch it. The function dial is oversized and very easy to read and use. The zoom toggle is placed precisely under your right thumb and the rest of the buttons are well laid out and exactly where you'd expect them to be. Put simply, the H5 is an ergonomic thrill ride.
