  • Conclusion: I very much like the P1, though. The supplied 8Mb memory card may be a joke, and the camera may not be very economical on card space generally, which may put a dent in the P1's usefulness as a travel camera.

  • Excerpt: I was already happy when I opened the box. After three years of running the site, I had finally received a Sony camera for review, from Sony directly! But what made me even happier was the camera itself -- the Cyber-shot DSC-P1 ($799) turned out to be a joy to use, and everyone I showed it to had...
  • Pros: Great design from body to menus- Sony Style, for sure., Uncompressed TIFF mode, Great bundle (except for skimpy Memory Stick), Cool extras like Clip Motion, image rotating/resizing, Great movie mode w/sound, USB support, Optional Marine Pack allows underwater photography
  • Cons: Memory Stick -- included card too small, not a big fan of proprietary memory cards, Macro and night shots could be better, No real manual controls, Would like exposure information in playback mode.

  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Sony DSC-P1: (3 megapixel ultra compact class) Sony really have done the ultra compact digital camera thing the right way. Hot on the heals of Canon's Digital IXUS (S100 ELPH) the P1 may not be quite as small but it's equally well put together, has a bigger 3x zoom lens, a 3...
  • Pros: Good image quality, outstanding dynamic range, excellent metering, Great colours, only slightly lower resolution than its much bigger Zeiss clad brother the S70, Good auto white balance (improved from the S70), Stylish, pocketable, robust with excellent build quality, Unsurpassed 3x zoom lens (fo...
  • Cons: Slightly slow startup, significantly slow scrolling between images in playback, Some Barrel distortion at wide angles, Nasty chromatic aberrations at full wide angle in extreme circumstances, Few choices for the shutterbug (though this camera isn't aimed at them), Poor macro abilities (compared t...

Sony DSC-P1 met MPK-P1 behuizing

7 April 2003
  • Excerpt: Omdat ik op duikvakantie naar de Canarische Eilanden ging wilde ik een camera kopen die niet alleen voor boven maar ook voor onder water geschikt is. Mijn keuze is uiteindelijk op de Sony DSC-P1 gevallen omdat deze 3.3 MegaPixels biedt voor goede foto's (afdrukken).
  • Pros: Handzaam en makkelijk in het gebruik., Klein formaat toestel en behuizing., Kopiëer mogelijkheid tussen memory sticks., Twee duiken gebruik zonder batterij wissel.
  • Cons: LCD display kan onderwater niet worden uitgezet., Batterijen worden in camera opgeladen., De duiklamp schrikt vissen af.

Sony CyberShot DSC-P1

22 May 2001
  • Conclusion: Cet appareil photo numérique compact est un parfait exemple de la capacité de Sony a réaliser des miracles en miniaturisation. Sa qualité et son design en font un excellent outil, malgré quelques faiblesses qui le réservent au grand public.
