Advanced Point and Shoot cameras are great for people who are still getting into the hang of photography though still unsure of how to use a DSLR effectively. The Sony DSC H100 is the perfect camera for beginners and intermediates alike. For intermediates, this will work well as a secondary camera or a backup camera.

Super Sensor

The camera comes equipped with a Super HAD CCD Sensor that has 16.1 effective MPs for high quality and detailed images. This is a great sensor for photography across varying situations that entail different lighting and scene conditions. The inbuilt HAD CCD sensor is highly capable even in low light conditions as long as the hand that clicks the image is steady. The camera also comes with the Intelligent Auto mode that makes shooting images that much more convenient and fun. This mode is also useful for when you need to quickly shoot an image or risk losing out on the moment.

Zoom it In

As is with most advanced point and shoot cameras, even in the Sony device, magnification is of prime importance right after picture quality. The Sony DSC camera however places Magnification and Picture Quality together by offering a whopping 21 X of Optical Zoom. Optical zoom offers more precision and clarity over digital zoom as it involves actual magnification rather than pixel manipulation as is the case with digital zoom cameras. The Wide Zoom also covers 25 mm to 525 mm.

HD Recording

You can use the highly capable camera for recording movies and videos at 720 pixels. This HD recording will come in handy for when you want to record your precious memories in video rather than simply taking pictures. The high quality HD recording capability of the camera can also be used to document important corporate events or formal parties as the camera is more than capable of handling the situation.

Clear Photo LCD

The Clear Photo LCD screen that comes with the Sony DSC H100 camera is a high quality feature that can support 460 thousand dots which translates into a very highly detailed image preview on the camera screen itself. This is handy for photographers as they will be able to quickly gauge the quality of the image before they decide if it needs to be re-shot or not. Apart from helping in preview, it will also come in handy for when you need to decide which image stays and which needs to be deleted.

The Budget Camera That Gets You High Quality Pictures....

I’m a 17 year old with a passion for photography who needed a camera that shoots good quality pictures & acceptably good video. Being on a budget (and as I simply don’t have the time nor the energy to carry a DSLR kit everywhere), I decided on a point & shoot with advanced features. And this camera fitted the bill perfectly.
Firstly, let me inform you that I did NOT buy this from Flipkart. The local Sony World had it priced identically and they offered a Sony 4×Battery+Charger set and a case ...

Excellent Camera @ budget price

Firstly I would like to thank Flipkart for delivering this product in time otherwise my Durga Puja photography would have been a complete flop.

I got 4*Sony Rechargeable battery with charger+4GB Card+Sony Camera Carry Bag+ Gift Voucher. Best deal among shops & all the online store.

The best part with Flipkart is, it delivers in all the parts in India. Not like other online shop which delivers in only limited location in India.

Sony DSC-H100

Hi all,

I bought the camera on last week, not from flipkart. Sony H100 is one of the best camera comparing this price range. First of all I was preffered Nikon L810, after I came to know that this camera has one or more drawbacks like slow focusing and difficult to take steady shots while high zooming etc.. but Sony H100 take photos with stunning picture quality compare than L810 and it has added extra features which is not available on other competitors. I strongly recommended this camera a...

Simply Superb !!

I am not a great photographer but I still love to take pictures on the go.. This is my first Point and shoot camera.. and am really happy about this cool stuff from Sony.

Pros :
1. Great Look .
2. Good Grip.
3. Simple and Quick control options. (when we really don't know what is the actual use of certain manual controls , it will be really nice if we don't have them :P).
4. Fantastic Flash
5. Very good Picture clarity with maximum zoom.
6. HD video recording is really awesome.

Best In Class Camera

This is one of the most Advanced Point & Shoot Camera available in the market till date (25th Oct,2012)
I didn't buy it from flip-kart.
Brought it from one shopping mall with the same price and same offers like charger kit, 4GB Card etc.
Its image quality is incomparable with other advanced point and shoot camera.
Its image quality is sharp and with all natural colors.
Its flash is superb.
If any one is confused with Nikon L810 then I would suggest go with Sony H100. Its LCD and Image quality...

Excellenr Camera

This is an excellent choice for the great price. I used this camera and was really a great experience. I clicked some pics and their quality was really great. I found it very easy to use and operate. I clicked a pic of a person who had some pimples but to my surprise the camera was intelligent enough to show a clean picture. I really it and recommend to all.

I compared it to fujifilm and nikon same price range cameras but I vote to this one only

Buy it for the Zoom

Zoom : The zoom can be set to Precision mode to 42x or Smart mode 21x. 42x works good but you have to use a tripod. Zoom is useless without a Tripod.

Panorama : Panorama shot is an amazing feature, works well.

Video : Video quality is awesome. 720 pixel recording. Use tripod for this as well if you're going to zoom.

Batteries : Invest in a good pair of rechargeable batteries. I would suggest Eneloop/Sony. 4 AA batteries are used so no problem if they run out, available at every nook & ...

CCD vc CMOS ?? Confused ??

Hi guys!

Though I do not own this camera and thereby can't comment on its picture quality but I do have one very important thing to share -

Which is better CCD or CMOS ?

1. If you have to choose, go for CMOS always.
CMOS sensor works wonders in low light conditions. It takes blur-free images without flash.

2. Just don't opt for a camera because it looks cool and DSLR type. In the end, its all about picture quality.

3. IMO, look for models in Nikon that have a CMOS sensor (I have a CMOS s...

Sony camera but local charger

The point & shoot camera of Sony is good value for money but the same value goes for a toss when you get a local made charger with this camera.

It is so surprising that we get a Sony camera but they send local batteries with a local charger, not sure this is a new policy from the manufacturer of bundling local batteries with charger which i am sure was not earlier.

Quite disappointing though
