My past three cameras have been compacts. Now more interested in photography want to go in for a bridge camera.

All my previous cameras were sony. The photos in the night were very very noisy. So decided to go in for a new bridge camera.

key requirements/information:

- i very rarely print photos (even if max is A3)
- would play around with photoshop
- need good clarity when viewed in caomputer screen full screen.
- would require the camera to be handy
- best possible night photography in this range (I understand that DSLR is the complete answer)

Decided to buy Sony H9

- got attracted by the remote, the speed
- I liked the hold, the screen, the hood
- already a spare battery, memory sticks

but these prove to be superficial features. after reading all reviews and seeing videos in Cameralabs, I would like to reassure myself in the image quality part.

Given my priorities What should I go for. Please do help me.

Are you saying you've bought the H9 already?

If so, there's still a great deal going for that model and I'm sure you'd be able to get a lot out of it. Sure, the image quality can leave a lot to be deisred, but then the situation's not much better on its rivals.

If you want a significant jump in quality, you'll have to go for a DSLR.

I was still very fond of the positive apsects of the H9, as I'd hope you'd gather from my review!

I dint expect such an instant response.....!!!!

I have not yet bought sony h9, just saw in a shop.

I gave a detailed read of your review of H9.
I think going in for a wide angle lense along with H9 would be a great for me.

Hope the image quality issue will not matter for viewing in the computer screen (not 100%). If you can give me an real time situation where i would fall short because of the image quality, it would be great. I can assess the likelyhood of me getting in one like that.

Will decide based on your answer

Hi Elango, this is something you have to judge for yourself - have a look at our Noise 2 and Gallery pages on the H9 review. The crops are shown at 100%, so represent what you'd see if you zoomed-in on image on your computer screen at 100%. If they're acceptable to you, then go for it. If they're not, then don't!

If you don't view at 100% though and only make smaller prints, then the H9's quality will probably be fine!

It's only people who like to view images zoomed-into 100% on-screen or make big prints who'll be disappointed.
