Cyber-shot® digital still camera
Get closer than ever with the Cyber-shot® DSC-H2 digital camera from Sony. With its incredible 12X optical
zoom lens combined with Super SteadyShot® optical image stabilization system you can capture stunning
long-distance images with minimized blurring, even during longer exposures. It is conversion lens compatible
so you can easily add optional telephoto and wide-angle lenses for even greater optical range.
6.0 Megapixel Super HAD™ CCD
Higher megapixels gives you more
detail and definition for large prints and
cropping in on your subject. Sony’s
advanced Super HAD (Hole
Accumulated Diode) CCD design
allows more light to pass to each pixel,
increasing sensitivity and reducing
Carl Zeiss® 12X Optical/2X
Digital Zoom/24X Total Zoom
12X Optical Zoom helps the DSC-H2
bring distant subjects closer and lets
you frame shots for better
composition; Sony’s precision 2X
Digital Zoom provides an additional 2X
magnification to zoom in close without
jagged edges.
52X Smart Zoom™ Feature 4
Sony's Smart Zoom feature lets you
magnify your subject beyond the 12x
optical zoom - to 16x (3MP), 20x
(2MP), even 52x (VGA). By intelligently
cropping into the central portion of the
scene, it avoids the image distortion of
other digital zooms.
Super SteadyShot® Optical
Image Stabilization
Super SteadyShot® Optical Image
Stabilization fights motion blur, even
during longer exposures at full zoom.

subtle colors and “ Rich” for more intense

High Sensitivity Mode
A new High Sensitivity Mode (ISO 1000)
