I take thousands of pictures of...

Strengths: standard hotshoe -- you can use non-Sony flashes. excellent magnification range -- 35mm to 200mm best autofocus I've ever had no step-up filter ring needed.

Weakness: wide angle isn't wide enough for vistas. a bit of noise at high ISO settings. a lot of shutter lag

I take thousands of pictures of marching bands every year. This camera was purchased as a replacement for two previous cameras, and has not failed to produce pictures which wow the crowds. A marching band can fill a football field, and your average high school or junior college stadium doesn't have seating far enough from the field for this camera to get the entire field without a wide angle...

Strengths: movable lens, plenty useful functions, comfortable form

Weakness: Expensive accessories and memory cards

It is a great camera. Very easy to get used to, comfortable L form, movable lens, just great. Moreover it has plenty of options! 5mp is enough even if you are going to print A3 size photos. Noise on ISO 100 and on ISO 200 is low; ISO 400 and ISO 800 are very noisy. if you are going to purchase this camera, you'd better buy at least 128mb memory too. And if you are going to use it while camping,...

This is a terrific camera if you...

Strengths: MANY-- --> swivel body is AMAZINGLY useful (I first thought it would be awkward) --> great lens = great images --> LIVE histogram -- LEARN TO USE IT & take much better images --> solidly built

Weakness: Nothing major --> Memory Stick memory is a little more expensive & more limiting than other formats --> RAW image capture would be nice, but I'm happy with my images

This is a terrific camera if you are an amateur interested in becoming a better photographer. DON'T fall into the "more megapixels is always better" trap. At 5 mp, I have taken professional quality images that look great at 8x10" (never tried anything larger). I bought it at somewhere near the original price ($999), but still consider it a good value. At current prices, I think it's a GREAT...

Strengths: Great camera, excellent quality, easy to use. It's a Sony. What else can I say.

Weakness: None.

I took the camera out of the box, charged the battery and started taking pictures. The auto focus does all the work for you. I'm going abroad at the end of May, and I think I've made the right choice in this purchase.

Strengths: Great Auto Focus. Amazing Night/Low light Shots/ Battery time would rival any other cam. Great buy for it price.

Weakness: Bulky. Be Ready to carry some weight around. On-Camera controls will take some time getting used to.

Ture there are Big names in the 5.0 mp digi cam world. but Sony has made there mark with this camera. Sony has really done a great job with this one.. ! Images are sharp , crisp and loads of manual control gives this camera the ease of Point and click as well as the professional touch. if ur a Photography enthusiast , looking for somewhere to begin with in the advance photography but dont want to...
