Sony Cybershot DSC H9 and DSC H7 Digital Camera Review

Sony Cybershot DSC H7The new models, DSC-H7 and DSC-H9, replace the existing H2 and H5 digital cameras and will be available in stores starting from April 2007. The H7 and H9 cameras debut Sonys new advanced sports shooting mode. This mode combines high shutter speed shooting and intelligent continuous auto-focusing.
The cameras can quickly focus on fast-moving subjects by predicting where those subjects will be in the frame. This predictive technology also helps to reduce shutter lag, the time it takes for the camera to focus and shoot.

The H9 and H7 cameras incorporate Super Steady Shot optical image stabilization to minimize blur caused by camera shake, an important feature when shooting at slow shutter speeds at full zoom. Their high sensitivity, up to ISO3200, also helps to fight blur resulting from fast-moving subjects.

With Sonys new face detection technology on both H7 and H9, it can easily identify up to eight faces in the cameras LCD frame, and automatically adjust white balance and flash as well as focus and exposure for correctly exposed, sharp photos.
The H9 is also the only Cyber-shot model in this years line to feature NightShot technology. This feature allows you to take photographs in environments with virtually no light so you wont miss the action, even at a late night game.

Equipped with Sonys Dynamic Range Optimizer, the new cameras can analyse captured image data and instantly determine the best exposure and tonality of each picture before JPEG compression. Also, red-eye correction and photo retouching effects with filters are available functions of these new cameras.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
