No, it is not a SLR or DSLR camera. SLR cameras have a mirror in them, where as point-and-shoot class cameras do not. With an SLR the mirror allows you to look through the lens, so that you are actually seeing through the lens when looking in the viewfinder. With a point and shoot, even a superzoom like the H3, the viewfinder is actually a small LCD, showing you a digital *image* of what the sensor sees.

Another primary feature is that SLR and DSLRs have removable lenses. They also are typically faster, and have better lower light performance. On the downside they are typically more expensive, larger and heavier.

All DSLRs will be noted as such. In Sony's case, their DSLR line is named "Alpha".

I need a different way to charge my sony cybershot DSC-H3 digital camera


The DSC-H3 does not contain any charging circuitry. You could hook it up to a nuclear reactor and it won't charge the battery. You need to use a separate charger, such as this one.

Surprisingly enough, most freezing problems (and other problems, too) can be solved by gently hitting your camera. It works! Just remember to be gentle.

SONY CYBERSHOT DSC - H3 DIGITAL CAMERA FLASH PROBLEM


Hi Jim,
Have you tried resetting all settings on the camera? On a Sony camera, it is called "initialize". The initialize setting is found by going to the menu, and tabbing down until you find an option called either "reset settings" or "initialize settings" and then confirm it.
Many times that will fix the issue, in case something has either been enabled/disabled on accident, or the software is sticking (which happens from time to time)
