  • Excerpt: This camera was brought by my father from Japan. Actually we have two of these in the house. And it really is a joy to have two, as we can shoot and shoot. This camera is actually old by now. It does have 3.3 Megapixels when it comes to details, but this camera is by now hard to use.
  • Pros: Affordable, Easy to carry, Can shoot movie clips, Zoom function
  • Cons: Hard to upgrade memory due to new technology

Cute

  • Summary: I bought the Sony DCP1 in 2001 and didn't need a new battery until 2003, and that's taking multitudes of pictures on high resolutions. I have since bought a new battery, in fact my husband has bought the same camera too. Maybe there were some faulty ones out of a batch and you lot got them.

Sony sales AND service win through

  • Excerpt: The Sony offering that cost £699.00 when it first came out about four years ago became available at £100.00 off at my local Sony Centre. I had to buy it as my old digital camera was far too basic. I had actually bought the very first digital camera from Casio which was a big thing back then.
  • Pros: Great battery life, Great quality images
  • Cons: May need repairing due to manufacturing 'fault'

  • Summary: You would be very wise to heed the warnings concerning battery malfunction. I have had this camera for 2 or 3 years and basically it's now useless as it refuses to charge batteries.

Do not buy this camera

10 July 2003
  • Summary: I have owned the DSC P1 for nearly two years, and while it is an excellent camera in terms of its functionality, and ease of use, the battery technology is dreadful. After a few mnonths of use the batteries refuse to charge, which means that you can only fire off a quick shot before the camera shuts...
