First Look: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H9

1:30 /

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H9 is a great digital camera if you primarily shoot outdoors in daylight, especially sports, children, and animals.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:01 >> Hi Lori Grunin senior editor with CNET.com and this is the Sony Cyber shot DSC H9. This Sony's mega zoom camera. It has a 15X optical zoom that starts at a relatively wide angel of 31 millimeters. It's not quite as wide as we see on the Panasonic FC50 which starts at 28 millimeters. There's a lot that's good about this camera. It's pretty fast. It takes relatively good pictures. As for the build quality it feels a little on the cheap side. It's like plastic which makes it kind of light but it makes it feel a little shabby. Like most mega zoom cameras this has an electronic view finder. The H9 uses a scroll wheel which is much nicer using the touch screen so it takes a little time to get used to this one. The big lens takes a 74 millimeter filter or 74 millimeter add on lens which is pretty hard to find because it's not standard and that's pretty big. The H9 has a little brother the H7. They're only a couple of differences between the two models. The H9 has a big three inch flip out LCD whereas the H7s is a 2.5 inch that's fixed. Also, the H9 has Sony's night shot infrared mode. So, if you don't need those two things and you wanna save a little money get the H7. I'm Lori Grunin and this is the Sony Cyber Shot DCS H9. ^M00:01:28 [ Music ]
