Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P200
12 May 2008
Summary: My first digatail camera,after research I found All the controls are just where they should be. You insert the battery only once and thereafter it charges right inside the camera. The LCD screen is covered with a clear plastic panel, so there is no chance of scratching it. You can take pictures from 1 megapixel all the way up to the 7.2 megapixels. With the close-up setting, you can get as close as two inches to the subject.
Summary: Wanted to upgrade from my current 2.1 megapixel camera to one having 7.0 mega pixels or better. Also did not want to spend a fortune for it. The Sony is really easy to carry, I use an eyeglass case to carry it in my shirt pocket. This makes it conveninet to take pictures anywhere, with good resolution.
Summary: I purchased this Sony Cyber-shot in order to upload pics to eBay. I was happy to see that it was available in an unopened box and was a different color than grey. The one I got was black. My step mother also has this camera but her's is grey and she paid more than I did for mine.
Summary: I waited a long time to purchase a digital camera, as I wanted something that would replace my 35mm Olympus, and last me a long time to come. I'm not a professional photographer, but love taking good quality photos for enjoyment, and so was looking for something that would give me good results without being overly complicated. I spent several months reading reviews online and visiting various camera shops in my local area.
Summary: This was the camera I upgraded from the DSC-P150. The size makes it convenient to tote around on trips, both casual and longterm. The photoquality of the camera makes it worthwhile to capture special moments. The 7.2 megapixel captures enough detail for cropping, resizing and digital editing. The camera has a balanced weight in hand. The 3X zoom is ample for most applications as well.
Summary: Far exceeded our expectations. Perfect for point and shoot or taking short movies of the kids doing cute things when the spirits move them. It seems fragile and the dials and settings require a bit of a learning curve. At first many of my pictures were out of focues, but this has decreased dramatically since I learned to set the scene settings for various kinds of light.
Summary: We spent a long time researching the purchase of a new digital camera. My Nikon Coolpix 880 was great when I bought it in 2000, but it's been dropped a few times, and it was a bit heavy/big. I wanted a camera that took great pictures, was light weight and small enough that I could comfortably carry it in my pants pocket. The Sony Cybershot 7.2 has everything I wanted. It's small, easy to carry in a small purse or pocket, and it takes amazing photographs.
Summary: I have enjoyed my new Sony P200. It's small, lightweight, quick to start up, and fun to use! Sony's colors are a little more vivid than some other digital cameras, but you can adjust that by setting the contrast and saturation levels lower. I have not had a problem with blur at all, but you do have to hold this camera steady. The optical viewfinder helps. My photos have been very sharp and crisp. I am particulary impressed with my indoor flash shots.
Summary: I have given the DSC-P200 a rating of 8 Excellent, this would be my 'pre-dust' rating. The camera is basically very robust, easy to use, and takes great photos, although it does struggle in low light where it needs a tripod, or image stabilisation... as found on newer models. Anyway, onto the dust... I can now no longer use my DCS-P200 as the pictures are spoilt by dust on the CCD sensor.
