I bought this camera on ebay from an Hong Kong seller. It arrived quickly and in great Condition. The quality of the pictures is great! But if you are planning to take 8 mega pixels photos be sure to buy an extra memory card! The camera is very easy to use with automatic settings, and the results are excellent. Even my 5 years old takes great photos with it. I love the steady shot feature! But it still has lots of advanced options for the ones that require it (manual exposure and aperture). Great buy, you won't be disappointed!

Product Information : Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H7

Manufacturer's product description

Shoot dramatic close-ups and sharp fast-action shots with the 8.1 megapixel Cyber-shot DSC-H7 digital camera. The Carl Zeiss 15X optical zoom and Advanced Sports Mode with high shutter speed are perfect for crisp long shots and excellent detail when shooting at sporting events. Super SteadyShot image stabilization and high-sensitivity (ISO 3200) mode reduce blur when shooting without a flash and Face Detection technology brings out the best in faces. You can also manually control the exposure and focus of the DSC-H7, making it ideal for more artistic shots. And with HD (high definition) output, photos can look even more spectacular when you share them with friends and family on HDTV screens.
