Cyber-shot Digital Camera H200
This was a very nice camera for the price. It's digital zoom is somewhat limited. Any zooming beyond 35X and the megapixel is reduced to 10 and at full digital zoom it's reduces to 5 megapixels. Camera does not have dedicated special effects features such as grayscale, black and white, solarize and sepia. I've owned other less expensive cameras and they ALL had this dedicated feature. My cellphone has this feature! Failure to include this kept it from being great.

DSC-H200 - Not a steady shot - More blur than not
I am writing this review to warn shoppers that this model is not, as the Amazon site notes, “a newer model” for the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V. Based on that statement I bought this to replace the DSC-HX10V (which sadly, I lost) and am grossly disappointed. Even the Sony website, which I checked before purchasing states that this camera has Optical SteadyShot image stabilization – but at least 3 out of 5 images I shoot are blurry. The DSC-HX10V gave me a perfect zoom or close up without problem. I wish Sony had continued producing that camera rather than representing this camera as a product which will “Say goodbye to blur”. I am returning this camera.

Average at best
Zoom is more than the camera can handle with regards quality and clarity at full zoom.
The video is only average as well and microphone is tinny.
Will probably be returning this unfortunately. Have a Hi-8 camcorder that has given me great performance for 10 years, this led me to this camera. However quality is not the same.

Love this camera, great for beginners.
I think at this price this camera gives you way more than you pay for. I absolutely love it. I have only 2 small things that I was not as happy about are the low light picture quality and as someone else mentioned the lens cover is very loose. It comes off very easily. But in the end this camera is perfect for me.
