Important Note: the H55 was replaced by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC H70 (compare ).


An Inexpensive alternative to Sony's own HX5, the H55 features a x10 zoom in a very small body with an attractive low price.

It has all of Sony's latest features making it an all automatic camera, producing good output with very little decision-making by the photographer. For beginning photographers, wanting a small, automatic camera with a large zoom and a wide angle lens, it's a good, budget friendly option.

The H55 is slightly larger but less expensive than Panasonic's ZX3 (compare ), and slightly smaller but with less zoom than Panasonic's ZS5 (compare ).

As mentioned above, it's the run-down version of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC HX5 (compare ) - if your budget allows it, go for the HX5 instead.
