Anyone who knows anything?

Is it a "facelifted" DSC-H3 or a new and improved camera for real??
or shall i aim for a DSC-H7, or maybe wait for a replacer for DSC-H7/DSC-H9??

IMO, the H-50 has the best opportunity of bringing to us some better features. here in the USA, the H-7 is down to $(US) 250.00. The H-3 is attractive for its small size, great flash range, and its ability to operate very well indeed in the Automatic Mode. Here is a H-3 photo sample.

I'd say forget the H10. It adds very little to the H3, which can be purchasedfrom Costco for a mere $199. The H50 has a slightly bigger sensor, which although minimal, may help reduce image softness produced by the H9 (another model along with the H7that IMO you should stay away from). If 12x is good for your needs, then try to get the H2 (or even an H1 with all its limitations over the newer models). It's one of the best out of the entire H series in terms of IQ and sharpness.

Very nice macro shot. I have no doubt the H3 is a great little camera. If onlythe lens started at 28mm like the TZ5 instead of 38mm, it would be difficult for me notto get one!

I too have been very pleased with the Sony H-3 camera. I agree with Tullio that it would be nice if it had a 28mm wide angle, but all in all it is a very good camera for me.

Like Jeanette, I feel that the H-10 was no more than a minimal cosmetic change. I have attached an existing light macro done right at our restaurant table.

Very crisp image, Sarah. I wonder how long it will be before I buy myself an H3!!!

Thank, Tulio-

It is good when you consider that it was an existing light photo.
