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
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.
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'
seems the shizzle all around...except the battery life

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...
Summary: I've just recieved this camera and it's fantastic. the range of features on the camera are just endless. I've updated to Digital photography from my old 35mm camera. What a change, better quality, stylish and much easier to use.
Excerpt: This camera was easy to learn how to operate. The on screen functions are simple for the novice to intermediate user. Transporting the camera is very easy, as it is extremely small. It can fit in your pocket, purse, carryon bag, etc...
Excerpt: Having had some experience with digital cameras before (working in a shop selling them to people who knew little or nothing) I was prepared to spend a little more and get exactly what I wanted when I was purchasing a camera for myself.
Pros: Lightweight, great picture quality, uses memory stick .
Cons: Fiddly menu system and long shutter delays .
