  • 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$ ?

I fell in love, and then got a divorce

Chris Carey, Amazon
10 August 2005
  • 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.

Disappointment

Amazon
10 August 2005
  • Summary: I really wanted to keep this camera after being blown away by predescessor compact version - the DSCV1. However - the purple fringing is awful. It wrecks daylight shots with anything other than anaemic sunlight by giving everything (car corners, traffic light metal work etc) a purple "fringe".

So I went home and started reviewing it more - of course I saw all the same reviews you have concerning the CA and noise. So I grabbed a memory stick and went back to the retailer for some test shots with the display model.

A camera of extremes - good and bad

John Martin, Amazon

  • 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.

Additional info on the purple fringing problem

10 August 2005
  • Summary: I don't own this camera, but have been researching it online. It seems there is disagreement among reviewers here regarding the alleged chromatic aberration (purple fringing) issue. The most thorough and objective online review site I know of for digital cameras is Digital Photography Review ([...

Already packed up to go back...

Amazon
10 August 2005
  • 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.

Good but not in par w/ my Canon pro 1

Mr. G., Newegg
21 May 2005
  • 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.
