Furthermore, the DRO Plus mode enhances optimization, analyzing each region of an image and performing additional image processing. Press the Home button to scroll past the first Shooting menu to the Settings menu and the second Shooting menu. White Balance Auto white balance was used for virtually all the images made by the H50 for this review, and did well overall. Dynamic Range Optimization Powered by the exclusive Sony Bionz high-speed processing engine, Dynamic Range Optimization DRO preserves image data in bright highlights and reveals more detail in shadows or backlit areas for great results even in difficult lighting conditions. The remote control is handy both during shooting for remote shutter release and playback when attached to a TV. The culprit appears to be that the camera was set in continuous stabilization mode, which is much harder on battery life than shot-only mode which only activates stabilization with the half push of the shutter button to acquire focus. Good color and image quality, good shutter response, and more features than you can shake a stick at combine with typical ISO noise performance to produce a camera that a full auto user can take up with confidence.

In fact, there’s nothing for your left hand to do. High Sensitivity uses ISO 3, to shoot effectively in low light without flash while the Sony Clear Raw Noise Reduction system helps sojy the color noise that can degrade low-light shots. The Sony H50 ships with a 3. Image quality can be deceiving, revealing defects on close examination that aren’t apparent at normal viewing distances. Advanced Sports Shooting simply selects a higher ISO more readily than other modes to freeze action and prevent blur.

Note the blurry WhiBal at the top center and the sharp Hellas label mosaics.

But there was one flaw that makes using the camera in the field very difficult, dsc-h5 since there’s no way around it for setting essential camera options like EV compensation.

The Sony H50 captured a lot of fine detail with good overall sharpness, but the effects of noise suppression randomly soften lower contrast and fine detailed elements. However, the LCD on the DSC-H50 is large and easy to see, and can be positioned up or down, which is nice when taking a photo at an awkward angle or close to the ground.

In the field, I found it frustrating to wait for focusing so I always prefocused by half-pressing the Shutter button, as I do for any long zoom racked out to its full telephoto focal length. This camera is a very god camera.

Sony DSC-H50 Review – Specifications

The Sony H50 offers a sensor resolution of nine megapixels along with a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar branded 15x optical zoom lens that includes Super SteadyShot optical image stabilization. DxO Color Depth Score bits: The greatest digital auto focus camera I have found. No Sensor shift image stabilization: The Intelligent Scene Recognition mode automatically detects 5 different types of scenes and selects the appropriate camera setting, plus it has two different modes – the advanced mode takes an image with the standard automatic settings and the other with optimized settings; while the auto mode takes a single shot, utilizing only the optimal settings.


I purchased this camera for the nighhtshot feature. Frankly, that arrangement never made sense to me. Update Unrecognized Zip Code. Rated 5 out of 5 by Heather from Great step up to a grown up camera I got this camera because I knew I wanted a bit more out of my point and shoot, but wasn’t ready for the size and price of a SLR.

Yes Rear Display Size inches: Again, I really wish this camera would offer dsc-b50 choice of image formats instead of only jpeg. Lens Faults There is barrel distortion straight lines bow out from center of image at the wide-angle end of the zoom, and pincushion distortion straight lines bend in toward center on the telephoto end — no surprise for a wide-ranging lens.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50 Review

Long zooms like the Sony Cyber-shot H50 are bulkier than the slip-in-your pocket ultracompacts, but they’re built to get you comfortably close to wildlife and sports action, something no cute digital camera can do.

The key feature for me is the nightshot capability. You press the Sony H50’s Menu button to affect settings peculiar to that operational mode. ISO is just obviously noisier, both full-size and cropped. This camera isn’t overly large or heavy, yet it’s solidly built. Yes White Balance Settings: Camera penalizes early shutter press?

The first Shooting menu which I’ve called Record mode simply takes soy to Record mode.

You do see the chromatic aberration in the white linen under the brown coffee cup, however.
