'the camera feels fairly sturdy with the exception of the right side, which is capped by plastic with part of it being a door covering the mini HDMI and USB/AV port.'
'Shadow detail is somewhat limited, due mostly to the camera's noise suppression efforts.'

'Screen brightness is manually adjustable (five steps), though even with the brightness maxed, there's too much glare off the display's coating to effectively use the camera in bright, direct sunlight.'
'The ISO 200 result is remarkably good and the ISO 400 result is perfectly usable for smaller prints.'
'has a small hesitancy when focussing at the long end of its zoom reach in low contrast light.'
'Its feature set is solid, but not exceptional.'
'The H5 is definitely outclassed by the competition in the continuous shooting department: the Canon PowerShot S3 and Panasonic FZ7/FZ30 can shoot infinitely (with a high speed SD card) at over 2 frames/second.'
