  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Sony DSC-P9: (4 megapixel compact) The DSC-P9 is ultra small, ultra lightweight and very solidly constructed. The metal case and self-covering lens produce a high user confidence level when carrying and storing the camera.
  • Pros: Good neutral colour balance, Resolution about the four megapixel average (limited by the lens?), Automatic white balance worked well under both daylight and incandescent lighting, New wider range of preset white balance options, Unlimited MPEG HQX recording (with audio), Selectable ISO sensitivit...

10 August 2002
  • Summary: I love this camera - fills the job of video camera dn still camera in one. As soon as Sony get their act together and bring out a 512MB MemoryStick, I'll be happy. Hopefully the new smaller MemoryStick Duo will finally be developed to the 1GB range like Sony promised a year ago.
  • Pros: Amazing pictures in good light., Terrific MPEG features WITH audio playback (& no time limit)., Small size, light weight, fits in any pocket., Build quality and ease of use are excellent., Direct record to versatile MemoryStick.
  • Cons: Weaker low light pictures., No zoom during MPEG filming., Sonys pathetic capacity of the MemoryStick.

  • Excerpt: If I'm not mistaken, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P9 ($599) is the sixth new Sony camera announced this year. The others include the DSC-P31, P51, and P71, plus three new Mavicas: FD200, CD250, and CD400.
  • Pros: Excellent photo quality, Robust operation, Small, easy to pocket camera; well built., Movie mode lets you record until Memory Stick is full, AF illuminator for low light focusing, Support for external flash, Cool Marine Pack for underwater photography
  • Cons: No optical zoom in movie mode, Not a fan of Memory Stick format and proprietary batteries (personal bias), 16MB Memory Stick too small for 4MP camera, No true continuous shooting mode or manual controls

  • Summary: Kameran har testats av T3, DC Resorce, DP Reviews, Steve´s Digicams och Imaging Resource. De flesta tycker att kameran är välpresterande och att bilderna blir skarpa med bra färger. En testare anser att bilderna antar en något varm ton ibland.

Sony CyberShot DSC-P9

24 July 2002
  • Conclusion: Dernier-né de la série des CyberShot de Sony et fleuron actuel de la gamme, le DSC-P9 combine compacité, esthétique et efficacité. Dommage seulement que sa relative lenteur de réaction lui interdise les photos d’action.
