Sony DSC-H1

Sony has come out with a great 5 megapixel "superzoom" camera that is arguably the best competition to the Canon S2 IS (see the post below). The image stabilized 12x zoom lens is the equivalent of 36-432mm in 35mm terms. The camera received high marks in the August 2005 issue of Popular Photography. The Pop Photo review has not yet appeared online.

DP Review gave the DSC-H1 a HIGHLY RECOMMEDED rating, their highest. The full review is well worth reading. The Canon S2 IS review is here.

Megapixel. net also has reviews of the S2 IS and the DSC-H1.

So which is better superzoom, the Sony or the Canon? Read the reviews and see what you think.
