I have a friend who is thinking of buying a new digital camera. She can't decide between the Fuji S5200 or the Sony DSC-H1. I have the Fuji and she has tried it and really likes it. I know nothing about the Sony. She wants a camera that will take good portraits and outdoor shotsand be fast enough for sports shots and low light shots WITHOUT LOOSING THE SHARPNESS. I really like my Fuji but someone told her the Sony was the better camera. What do you guys think?

The Sony H-1 is a fine ultra zoom camera, but it is surely not a low light level camera. On the other hand, the Fuji S-5200 is a very good low light level camera,as well as good all around camera.

I truly believe that your friend, has to make us her mind about which is it that she wants to do.

When there's sports involved, especially if it's something else than outdoor sport Fuji would be considerably better.
