Conclusion: I was very impressed with the P150 when we reviewed it last year, and the P200 - though by any measure a minor upgrade - builds on and adds to its appeal. The bigger screen and the inclusion of a manual white balance option are very welcome, and the price is even more appealing now the camera has been on the market for half a year or so. On the downside the built-in flash is nothing to write home about, being a little underpowered.
Pros: Excellent results, Good resolution, Virtually no purple fringing, Good dynamic range, Superb build quality, Very fast and responsive, Easy to use, Good movie mode, Decent macro mode, Good battery life, AF illuminator, Flash works really well at very close distances (throttles down well), Nice, bright screen, Wide range of optional accessories, Good value for money
Cons: Limited manual controls, Flash underpowered, occasional underexposure, Some edge softness at wide apertures, Accessing some advanced functions via menus is a bit long-winded, Only two aperture settings, Design can exacerbate camera shake at lower shutter speeds, Limited continuous shooting capabilities

Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P200 has been around for a while now and is something of a bestseller. It's easy to see why - the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P200 is compact, stylish, well-built and takes good photographs that produce great A4 prints. As well as offering full auto and scene modes for beginners, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P200 also has a Manual exposure mode for the more experienced photographer who wants to take full control, although it would have been nice to see shutter...
Summary: Similar in functionality to the P150 model, Sony's DSC-P200 features a high-resolution 7.2 megapixel CCD and 3x optical zoom lens but a larger, 2-inch LCD monitor. A small, somewhat tight, optical viewfinder is also provided. Available in silver, red or black, its body is slightly smaller and lighter than the P150, making it more pocketable. Ease of use will make the P200 equally appealing to both rank beginners and more experienced users. . .
Summary: Már megint egy újabb lekerekített végű, P sorozatú gép a Sony-tól. Igen. Akik minden alkalommal teljesen új külsőt és forradalmi újításokat várnak, azoknak nem sok érdekeset nyújt az új P200-as. akik viszont elvárják egy gyártótól, hogy a modelljeit a kor színvonalának és a vásárlók igényeinek megfelelően frissítse és csiszolgassa, azoknak tetszeni fog az új, 7 megapixeles fényképezőgép kiforrottsága.
