Summary: If you are looking for a camera with all the extras without being hard to operate, this is your camera. You have the option for manual control or fully auto. It takes great pics and holds a charge for three hours after a full charge. Picture quality is great and the Night Shot is good with an extra IR light to help distance.
Summary: I love this camera!!!! yes -- it does takes some getting use to concerning hand positioning. After that it is all wonderful. The DSC-F707 is very user friendly, to such an extent even when I let ppl borrow my camera they understand how to use its different features. I've had mine ever since they came out with 'em and its only had to be 'repaired' twice (flash wouldn't pop up, and zoom got stuck which we had fixed by a local repair guy (cheap as in 30 dollars for the...
Summary: I bought this camera for infrared photography and am pleased with it using the night mode and an IR filter. The added bonus is the beautiful color rendition for regular photos. Very nice camera. I'd give it five stars if it had a memory function to save your settings.
Summary: I have had three of these cameras since 2001. The first was stolen when I was mugged on the steps of the St. Deny Basilica in Paris. I had already fallen in love with the camera by then. When we returned home, I was blown away with the clarity of the photographs which I'd uploaded to a laptop, fortunately, before the camera was stolen.
Summary: The DSCF707 has a great lens and a lot of functionality (including full manual mode, infra-red capabilities, mpeg w/ audio, etc.). The main thing for me, though, is how the lens can pivot vertically relative to the body (or the body to the lens?). This means you don't have to hold it up to your face--you can take shots discreetly from waist-level or around a corner, or you can hold it up over a crowd for a better angle, and still see the LCD screen.
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. First off - if you have this camera or are picking one up, drop $10 on an appropriately sized UV lens attachment. It doesn't really change your pictures, at all (it's a clear lens).
Summary: I've this camera since 2001 the cost was 762$. The camera has been worth every dollar I paid. Everytime I take pictures and share them with friends they get really impressed. I've taken pictures like a pro. I bought a optional mounted flash and in a enclosed space and pointing the flash to the ceiling I've taken the most vivid pictures I could dream of. I've captured the most wonderful still moments of a party with incredible detail.
