Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F707

PC Magazine
7 December 2003
  • Excerpt: With its large, distinctive snout, the gray-and-black Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F707 looks more like a camera mounted on a lens than a lens on a camera. Its good tactile feel, lineup of interesting and even unique features and functions, long battery life, and excellent image quality make the DSC-F707 ($1,000 list) an appealing prosumer digital camera. But it does have a few quirks and engineering oversights that may frustrate sophisticated users.

  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Sony DSC-F707: (5 megapixel prosumer) Sony couldn't have been sure of the success of the F505 when they launched it, an unconventional design it wasn't exactly what people were expecting (especially following on from the D700). Sony followed up with the F505V which although essentially an F505 with another sensor shoehorned in, performed very well on its own merits.
  • Pros: Class leading resolution (at the consumer level, at time of writing review), Good metering (improved thanks to 'Multi-Segment' metering), Bright, vivid colour reproduction (though saturation control is sorely missing), Low noise (thanks to Clear Color Noise Reduction system), High quality, sharp and very fast (F2.0 - F2.4) 5x optical zoom lens (some macro distortion), Generally quick AF, Hologram (Laser) assist for low light works better for large subjects, Fast start...
  • Cons: Limited burst ability, very fast but only 3 frames, Visible sharpening 'white halo' around black lines, Bad lens distortion with wide angle macros, Barrel distortion at wide angle, Over saturated reds could lead to clipping for very bright red subjects, No control over colour saturation or tone output, No Fluorescent, Cloudy or Flash white balance, No control over record review time (too quick as it is), Only two JPEG compression levels, Maximum capacity Memory Stick ...

  • Excerpt: Just when I was getting used to 4 Megapixel cameras, Sony makes another huge jump, this time to 5 Megapixel with the new Cyber-shot DSC-F707 ($999). The new 5.24 Mpixel CCD (same as in the Minolta DiMAGE 7) uses 5.02 million of them, and that's what Sony will market it as (note the 5.0 Mpixel number on the side).
  • Pros: 5 million pixels for under $1000!, Feature packed, 5X optical zoom, Excellent photo quality, Very good bundle (except for Memory Stick), Manual white balance and other manual controls, Battery lasts a long time
  • Cons: Proprietary Memory Stick, flash support, A RAW mode would be nice, No true continuous shooting mode

Sony Cyber Shot DSC-F707

Agoraquest, LLC
13 October 2001
  • Summary: "Great camera! Highly recommended." Just got the 707. I was worried the hype was overrating the camera, but this turns out not to be the case; this is a very fine camera at a reasonable price. The high resolution (5 megapixel), low aperture setting (f2.0), and the high optical zoom (5x) give you a lot of room to experiment with and take pictures under a variety of conditions.
  • Pros: While it may look like a subtle update to its predecessor, the enriched DSC-F707 blows away the 3-megapixel F505V with 5 megapixels of resolution. Though 3 megapixels might suffice for most consumers, if you're likely to need to print 11x17 prints, you're in luck, thanks to the new 2/3-inch CCD size (as opposed to the former 1/2-inch size) with a maximum resolution of 2,560x1,920.
  • Cons: Should have 10x

Sony DSC-F707 met Inon UWL-100 groothoeklens

DigiFish
11 June 2005
  • Conclusion: Voor boven water zijn er verschillende soorten groothoek lenzen te koop voor de Sony F707 die de matige 38mm omzetten in gemiddelde tot extreme groothoeklenzen. Voor onder water is er voor de DSC-F707 in combinatie met een Ikelite huis tot nu toe helaas nog geen werkende oplossing.
