Sony F707 Retrospective Review

3 November 2008
Summary: I'm out shopping for a new camcorder and am leaning towards a Sony model. This brought to mind my Sony F707. **ON THE UP SIDE** I bought it in 2001 and paid a lot. I think with all the stuff I got with it, it came to about $1300. Best money I ever spent on an electronic device.
Summary: Like most people about to buy a digital camera, I did a lot of research. A lot. When it came down to making a decision about price vs. value, I kept coming back to the 707. It really came down to the incredibly high resolution, the Zeiss lens and the EFT veiwfinder which although not the ideal, it's...
Summary: Prior to owning the Sony DSC-F707, I had a Kodak DC290. I thought that the Kodak was pretty decent, but after acquiring this camera, I totally abandoned the Kodak. Not only does this camera have exceptional zoom ability, but it also has a macro for taking close-up's!
Summary: I bought this camera a year ago as an upgrade from the P70 because I wanted something with manual focus and a higher resolution. I've been extremely satisfied with the picture quality, although a slightly faster lens would have made taking indoor pictures easier without the flash.

Summary: I took this camera on a 10 day trip to Italy and it performed like a champ. I am continually amazed at the picture quality, both in night and day shots. Just as a primer, I went 10 days straight shooting off around 400mb worth of images per day.
Summary: I own a graphic design studio, and with DSC F707 we could finish almost all projects without using any other still camera. Picture quality, color quality, exposure measuring, and all other functions work very well.
Summary: I have several digital cameras, and this one is far and away my favorite. For the average person (i.e., a non-professional photographer), this is a tremendous instrument. The 5.2 Mpixel resolution is fantastic, the controls are great and easy to use.
Summary: My wife and I each have a 707 and try to go out shooting at least once a week. I love this camera. I am going to list a few shortcomings, but trust me this is what technology should be and while our pair of Nikon 6006s have a few advantages over digital, the ease of use and instant gratification...
Summary: I have been using this camera for about six months now and I am constantly amazed at how good it is. I never use my film cameras anymore and have ditched my plans to convert one of my rooms into a darkroom. The 707 takes some getting used to, but you'll find yourself mastering it within a few days.
Summary: I bought this camera in May of 2002 and found that I can take better pictures with it than I could with a film camera. It has all the major features of a high quality Nikon SLR that I own and still use for slides. The Zeiss lens is outstanding and has a big aperture, f2.0, impressive for a digital.
