I had a chance to try out the DSC-H10 from Sony, and I was quite pleased at what I saw, as well as the pictures that I took.
The DSC-H10 has 8.1 Megapixels of action, in addition to a Carl Zeiss 10X Optical Zoom Lens. So not only did I get clearer shots, but this clarity can be accessed from a distance.
The camera worked out of the box after charging, and I was able to take my first picture after entering the date and time. I was soon taking wonderful shots with an automated flash that pops up when needed.
There are a lot of features on this camera, such as the Face Detection, Anti-Blur Solution, Super SteadyShot Optical Image Stabilization, In-Camera Red-Eye Correction, and High Sensitivity (ISO 3200) Mode. It also has an Advanced Sports Mode with a very high shutter speed of up to 1/4000 second.
As for the filming mode, it can shoot for up to ten minutes in VGA (640 x 480) at a rate of 30 frames per second. The internal memory has 31MB, and there is a built-in memory card slot which accepts Memory Stick Duo (as well as Duo PRO) media.
By the way, the user has an option of connecting the camera to any HD Compatible TV in order to view photos from their own television.
The Sony DSC-H10 is available now on the Sony website for about $299.99, and it is quite something for your money.
