I just got an H1 and I love it. In looking at the sample pics and zooming in, the sony definatly looks sharper with much less noise which is the most important to me

I just love the comment on the two lenses, take a really good look at them .

This reminds me of a review by Camcorder News where the Sony 1/6" CCD in a Sony camera is tiny but somehow OK inside the Canon or the Panasonic ....

Did you know that the same soap powder has more power inside a red box than a blue one?

So if they are the same lens (and I'm not saying they aren't as I don't know), how come they behave so differently and have slightly different aperture range specs?

Full review of Canon S2 and Panasonic fz5 can be see at dpreview



http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/panasonicfz5/



All three 12x 5mg cameras have similar features.

Still trying to decide. Leaning toward S2 because of features and time lapse capability.

For Maxx

Sony H1 36-432mm, F2.8-3.7

Canon S2 36-432mm,F2.7-3.5

Do you really think that F2.8 is exactly that?

The aperture number is rounded up or down to a standard figure, in the case of Canon to make the difference is not rounded up.

The reason the results are different is similar to having the same negative printid by different labs.

See also the previous lens clones, for example the Canon G1 and Sony S85 , same sensor,same lens, different results

The amount of TCA (or lateral colour) is determined by the lens. The Sony H1 lensseems to have more TCA than the Canon S2's (at least at wide-angle). The fringe colours are different too. Could it be a Canon design, but manufactured by Sony?

Samsung is coming out w/ a 8mp 15x zoom camera I believe in July.* It looks rather impressive.

Yes, the Pro815. Here's the press release: http://www.dpreview.com/news/0506/05...o815.asp#press

Unfortunately there's no mention of image stabilization, which is a major oversight for a 15X zoom, even with ISO 800. It's also kinda big.
