I'm troubled. Wanted to love it, but can't force myself.

  • Summary: I'm not happy. It may be the best answer for the price and picture size, but I'd look at the other 8meg cameras before picking this one.
  • Pros: Movie mode works great! Love the rotating body and long focal length. Good weight.
  • Cons: Does not perform as expected. Slow capture speeds. Weird display when pointed into sunlight.

Already packed up to go back...

"boc2003", Amazon
12 February 2004
  • Summary: The camera arrived 3 hours ago and is already packed up and ready to be shipped back. I have the F717 and I thought I would upgrade, as I do every year or two, to Sony's latest and greatest. I LOVE my 717 and didn't even think of parting with it, but thought it would be my new back up camera while the F828 would be my primary. I took some shots with the F828 and was very impressed with the color quality...

A camera of extremes - good and bad

John Martin "madmartha", Amazon
31 January 2004
  • Summary: I have been using this camera extensively for two weeks, although it belongs to a friend. I suppose that may make me more objective than someone who actually owns one, because I don't have to rationalize having made a $1000 investment. I wanted very much to like this camera, and there are certain things that I love about it. However, there is no way that I could use this as my primary camera. First, the good.

I fell in love, and then got a divorce

Chris Carey, Amazon
22 January 2004
  • 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 creates a problem when using filters). Those are just some of the untechnical things that popped out to me.

Sony F828 hmmnn

Alan, Amazon

  • 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. First impressions were, it is very comfortable to hold, the best swivel lens cybershot to date, it feels just right with the buttons in the right place. It actually looks more like a pro camera, housed in the black and strong casing.

Buena cámara con algunos defectos molestos

Ciao
29 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Esta fue mi primera cámara de fotos digital "grande", y lo cierto es que en su día estaba muy contento con ella. Cuando la compré, allá por 2004, los 8 megapíxeles que tiene eran una auténtica salvajada. A esto hay que sumar que debido a mi desconocimiento no supe entrar a valorar otros aspectos de la misma y me dejé impresionar por lo típico: los megapíxeles y el zoom.
  • Pros: Cámara bastante completa en su momento
  • Cons: Objetivo no intercambiable, muy lenta disparando en formato RAW

  • Summary: La f 828 es una cámara que me ha dado satisfacciones hasta que he tenido que llevarla al servicio tècnico oficial...., un desastre...no tienen ni idea de cámaras fotográficas te atiende el mismo que atiende para una play station...supongo que el técnico que las arregla es un todoterreno que se atreve con todo, pero el resultado en una reparación de 300 €, es para olvidarte de la marca Sony.
