The camera offers 8.1MP resolution, a powerful Carl Zeiss 15x optical zoom lens, Advanced Sports Mode with high shutter speed (1/4000 seconds), NightShot system, and a large 3.0-inch Clear Photo LCD.
There’s no doubt the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H9 is a very impressive camera, but like the other super-zooms we’ve compared it against, you’ll need to carefully weigh-up the pros and cons. If you’re after a super-zoom with the biggest, most flexible screen and fastest focusing, then the Sony’s for you. Flipping the screen out to shoot at unusual angles, grabbing fast action, then enjoying it on the big screen afterwards is certainly very seductive. It’s also nice that Sony’s included an infra red remote control and lens hood – albeit a hefty one – as standard accessories.
