Indoor Crops

Images below are all unmodified 100% crops from their respective cameras. ISO was set on the camera but exposure and white-balance were on automatic. Images from the Sony Cybershot DSC-H5 are flanked by images from the Konica-Minolta Dimage A2 and Fuji Finepix F30. The A2 is an older large digital camera, the F30 is a modern point-and-shoot camera. Although the Fuji F30 does not compete with the H5, Fuji has the S6000fd which combines the same sensor with a mechanical wide-angle 10.7X optical zoom lens.

The Sony H5 shows a decent performance here. Noise levels are lower than with the Konica-Minolta A2 but significantly higher than with the F30 point-and-shoot, particularly at higher ISO settings. Colors from the H5 are also dramatically oversaturated.

White-balance and sharpness are clearly the H5's weak-points. Under incandescent lighting, the H5 and F30 show similar white-balance, with the F30 slightly more accurate. The A2's white-balance is much better though. Sharpess of the H5 is also clearly behind the A2 which preserves more details at all ISO settings. Although the F30 is minimally sharper, it keeps more details at higher ISO settings. The last difference to notice is exposure. The Sony Cybershot DSC-H5 consistently produced a darker image than the A2, resulting in more conservative exposure.
