Sony Cybershot Digital Camera 7.2MP DSCH5B
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The new Cyber-shot DSCH5B has a 7.2-mega pixel CCD imager, extra-large, three-inch LCD screen and a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 12x optical zoom lens.

The DSCH5B incorporates Sony's Super SteadyShot optical image stabilisation to help reduce image blur caused by hand movement. Because the camera features high-light sensitivity settings up to IS0 1000, fast-moving cars and people can also be captured with less blur and graininess.

The new DSCH5B is substantial without feeling bulky, and features a comfortable grip with controls easily accessible by thumb. The three-inch, high-resolution LCD screen features high-quality colour reproduction and displays pictures with vivid clarity.
