Summary: I used to have a sony 3.2 megapixel camera, which broke when it was dropped, so replaced it with the P200. I had taken a lot of photos I was happy with with the previous camera, so was expecting to be as happy with this one as I was with the old one, if not happier, given the improved resolution.
Summary: This camera is a real 'sunbather' type... and if you're in optimum outdoor lighting, and esp. with a subject made of stone (not moving or dead)... chances are pretty good this camera will take quite excellent photos.
Want black spots on your pictures? Buy this camera!

Summary: I bought this camera for a vacation trip to Paris in April. I got back to the States and downloaded the pictures from the camera. What did I see? Beautiful picture of the Eiffel Tower with a large, blurry black spot in the sky. About 30% of my photos had the same problem.
Summary: I usually like Sony products. Do not buy this camera, unless you plan on taking your pictures with a tripod and keeping it in a protective case at all times. We dropped the camera 3 feet to the ground and now it does not work. It will cost more to fix than replace.
Summary: I bought a Sony DSC-P200 on 8/19/2005 from a local OfficeMax store and six days later returned it. I have always bought Sony cameras for myself and other family members, and I have shot in the tens of thousands digital pictures over these years. This was my 7th Sony Camera purchase since 1998.
Summary: I bought this camera to replace my Canon Powershot 5MP that seemed to have constant red-eye problems, and I am so sorry I bought it. I have the exact same problem with this camera that other people have described in their reviews.
Summary: I traded up from an Olympus 3mp. My old camera took consistently good photos, but I like to do alot of cropping, and I thought upgrading to 7.2mp would give me greater ability in that area. Also, I wanted a smaller camera.
Summary: I bought this camera from Jacobs in Central London on 10 Sep 2005 for 269.99 pounds. A great camera with brilliant pictures until 6 months ago when the flash stopped working properly. Other people have reported the same problem.
Summary: I loved this camera - it was easy for a lazy & non-techie photographer to take great shots. However, after about 6 months I noticed shadows in my shots that looked like swarms of flies - after online research I discovered this camera is prone to getting dust trapped inside the lens & Sony seem...
Pros: Lovely shot quality & easy to use on auto
Cons: Awkward manual features & CAMERA DETERIORATED QUICKLY
Fails miserably when it comes to producing crystal clear pictures

Summary: I have to say on the whole I'm rather disappointed with this camera, after reading such excellent reviews. What appealed to me most about this Sony camera was the high resolution, battery life, feature rich, good screen size and value for money. Which did not fail to impress, but....
