Summary: This is a great consumer level camera. The only problem is that it cost more than DSLR. Do you really need the camera which can't shoot anything decent on more than ISO 100, has usual for cheap super-mega-zooms chromatic abberations and cost almost 800$ ?
Summary: I am an owner of the F505V and the F717. When I saw the F828, I fell in love. They fixed (and improved) many of the things that bothered me about the F717. The swivel is much stronger, the flash pops out much smoother, the menus are animated, the ER emitters are no longer in the lens area (which...
Summary: I really wanted to keep this camera after being blown away by predescessor compact version - the DSCV1. However - the purple fringing is awful.

Summary: I had this camera for 2 weeks now. Its a little big and heavy compared to the canon powershot pro 1. Picture quality is okay but i still preferred the quality of the canon. Build quality, i fing the body more plastic material than titanium or steel. A little bulky for the go around.
Summary: Well after reading these reviews, I had to add my own. I had been aware of the reported problems, after visiting various sites around the web, but took the plunge and bought the camera yesterday.
