I purchased the Sony CyberShot DSCH1 in 2006. To this day I have not used a digital camera that has its level of quality. You can take colorful pictures with the camera that are 5.1 mega pixels and the focus appears to be perfect. The video it shoots is equally satisfying and all the data is stored on a memory stick duo.
The only thing I know I found that I did not like about this camera is the fact that if you walk and shoot you can not move your hands as the camera will pick up those sounds and you will hear them in the video.
I also never found out how to use night vision, or if it even had night vision. Considering this thing packs in the best digital camera and video recorder you can buy its a steal. It would be wise to pick one up used or buy it back from your buddy that you sold it to.
