Thanks, armadilloshield. The H1 has been the best camera I've ever had (and I do have about 6 at the moment including the Canon S2). It's fast, it produces sharp images with great colors and I hardly haveto do anything in PSbesides cropping and re-sizing. I could not ask for more!

I like your bubble picture
Actually now I'm considering to get H2, since the price different not much.
Few things only H2:
1. Higher ISO (but maybe not usable)
2. Timer have 2 & 10 second
3. During Video recording can use optical zoom
4. Smaller LCD than H1 (but can live with it )
5. Only accept Sony MS, not Sandisk, hmmmthat is the set back :roll:

Where did you read that ?

To be honest, I find it hard to believe that Sony cards are the only ones accepted by the new H2/H5 cameras. There is nothing proprietary about memory cards and both Sandisk and Sony brands should work. From the Sony website:

Memory Stick Duo™ Media:
The DSC-H2 has a built-in slot for optional Memory Stick Duo™ or higher-capacity Memory Stick PRO Duo™ media -- the ultra compact media for shooting, storing and sharing your photo images.

SONY does not indicate that their MS is the only one that can be used. Perhaps you have a bad card, armadilloshield! I would certainly try it at the store before buying it if that's a limitationyou do not want to have. I use Sandisk Ultra II 1gb on my H1 and it works just fine.

As for the differences between the H1 and H2, one should be cautious about the higher ISO. I think it's a marketing move but we will not know until we read some reviews. The timer should not be much of a problem. Eight seconds is hardly a long wait IMO. The ability to use zoom during movie recording is probably the biggest plus of the H2 over the H1. Smaller LCD is a downgrade.Since I use EVF most of the time, specially when Ishooting with long zoom for it gives me more stability,I could probably live with a 2" LCD.

I did try my Sandisk MS on H1, and it works.
Currently I use my 512M Sandisk MS on my Sony Ericsson phone without any problem too. I also have tried my Sandisk MS with 2 different H2 in 2 different shop, both doesn't work.
I suspect Sony will detect the MS card signature, if not Sony then no access :?
