Very disappointed

Gavin Sherlock, Amazon
31 August 2006
  • 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.

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. The black blur was often in the same area on most pictures, but because the lens moves when I zoom, the spot sometimes is closer to the center, sometimes further to edge.

Forget the zoom!

  • 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. Intially this camera met my every expectation and then some, controls and functions were easy to locate and master, especially having used Sony cameras for so long.

Not overly impressed

William M. Gibson, Amazon

  • 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. I must say that I've taken about 200 photos with my new Sony, and I'm not overly impressed. I tend to shoot almost all my shots in full auto mode, and at least half of the photos were blurry, or the color was not accurate.

  • 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 unable to fix it. The same thing's happened to a friend with the same camera. I persevered but have lots of shots that need some serious retouching.
  • Pros: Lovely shot quality & easy to use on auto
  • Cons: Awkward manual features & CAMERA DETERIORATED QUICKLY

  • Summary: MI CAMARA NO TIENE MAS DE 3O DIAS DE USO Y YA EN LAS FOTOS APARECEN PEQUEÑAS MANCHAS DE POLVO, ESTO NO ESTA AFECTANDO A NOSOTROS LOS COMPRADORES , LA EMPRESA SONY NO SE HASE CARGO DE NADA, NO HAY MOVIMIENTO CON RESPECTO A LA SOLUCION DEL PROBLEMA, SE ESTAN GANANDO LA DESCONFIANZA DE MUCHOS CONSUMIDORES DE LA MARCA "SONY".MUY BUENA LA CAMARA PERO PESIOMO SU SEYADO.

Der Fleck auf den Bildern...

  • Summary: ...nervt mich auch. Ich habe auch geputzt in der Hoffnung, es wäre außen und nicht weiter schlimm. Ich hoffe die Reklamation bei amazon läuft bei mir genau so unproblematisch und schnell. Die Kamera hat mir jedenfalls trotz aller Vorzüge den Spaß am Fotographieren genommen.

  • Excerpt: Не советую брать. Но бывает и хуже точно говорю. Просто после кенона не катит.
  • Pros: Наличие блока питания, ручных настроек. Быстрота работы. Хороший ж/к экран. Дешев для своих параметров. Но уж лучше кенон иксус 50,55 за эти деньги купить.
  • Cons: Неправильная цветопередача. Слабая светосила объектива по факту. Плохое видео по сравнению с кеноном, 640*480 сдесь то же что 320*240 на кеноне, и по факту записать видео можно ничуть не больше чем в ави того же качества, но ави 640*480 не сравниш с форматом видео сони, ави лучше конечно. Требователен к памяти и она дорогая.
