Advantages: Great pictures and HD video
Disadvantages: Issues with flash.
I love cameras and this Sony Cybershot DSC H10 is my favourite camera I have ever owned. Now I am not amazing when it comes to knowing the inns and outs of camera but here is how I have found it to use.
The camera is not exactly light weight and it feels quite substantial. It is black with a huge lens on the front which is a Carl Zeiss lens. It has quite a few buttons on it and the main screen at the back takes up around 3/4 of the camera. The flash is kept down and comes up when it is in use.
Now to turn the camera on you have to make sure you take the lens cap off which I forget to do all of the time. If you don't it will politely tell you to. the screen is big but is not a touch screen so use the dial at the top to select your function. There are many including a green camera icon for people like me who just want to point and shoot and then a scene selector for those who wish to take it further.
So pictures are 8.1 megapixels and the optical zoom is 10X which is extremely good. I remember being in San Francisco and shooting birds from a great distance with this camera and it copes perfectly. There are ISO settings, night settings and panoramic settings so I do believe that there is something for everybody.
The videos you can take are HD and 1080p which is fantastic. It is extremely quick at panning and also you have the option to take quick photos in succession if there is something you just cannot miss. The memory cards for this camera are memory stick pro duo's which are easy to find and relatively cheap.
Also worth a mention is the macro shooting option which I have always struggled with on cameras. This camera allows you to take macro shots with ease and it has stabilising properties which means the camera will help you keep it steady. My hands always shake so this is good for me.
So I have had this camera since 2009 and have only had one issue with it. This was with the flash as it suddenly stopped popping up. Our friends have the same camera and they have had this to so it looks like it my be a fault with the camera. I sent it off for fixing though and it has come back fine so at least you are aware that it can be fixed.
In conclusion I think this camera is fantastic and would recommend it to anybody. I love a point and shoot so its great for me and my husband likes to fiddle manually with cameras and he loves it. There you go good for everybody.
Summary: Fantastic Camera despite the issue
