Great Little Camera but a lousy, cheap, plastic access door that breaks!
27 December 2011
Summary: Great all around point and shoot digital camera for still shots and video bursts with sound. Love, love, love this camera. Lightweight and small enough size to fit inside a pocket or small purse. Friends with much larger cameras fully equiped with extra lenses marvel at the photo quality of my little point and shoot Sony. They miss many good shots because it is too much work to lug a heavy camera around.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P200 7.2 MP Digital Camera: easy to use and A+++ photos
21 April 2011
Summary: I bought this camera because it was being sold for parts that I needed. I needed the charger to replace mine which I misplaced and have not been able to locate. I have enjoyed using my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P200 7.2 MP Digital Camera immensely over the years and did not wish to replace it with a newer model. I prefer this camera over other digital cameras that I have owned or used because it takes spectacular pictures of both still and action figures.
Summary: I own several other cameras (Nikon,Pentax) from 5 to 12 mega pixels... but no one compares with this camera. Pictures are sharp, clear and if using different settings you can get very good pictures. The others are clumsy, difficult to adjust and really leave a lot to desire... but this one Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P200 is the best camera made by Sony...what a pity Sony abandoned this camera, but e-bay is the best place to find and buy this jewel. If you find one here, BUY IT!
Summary: No question this is a one of a kind digital cameras and is still sought 3+ years after it came out. I picked up a few used because some jerk stole mine from my office. They are all around the best pocket camera you can have until very recently(10/2010). Crisp pictures and close to hd video that exceeds any camera I ever saw at 30 frames per second when the pricier kodaks shot video at 24 frame per second which is choppy and somewhat pixelated.
Summary: I don't know why Sony stop selling this camera, easy to use, compact and takes high quality pictures, every thing that I need. Im a profesional photographer and this is the camera that I carry with me whenever I'm not carrying my large cameras and lenses for work.
Classic Point and Shoot - No Dumb Bells 'n Whistles
31 October 2009
Summary: I love this camera. I have already owned two of them. (Actually, I still own two others, but they have gotten significant amounts of dust inside the camera body and onto the sensor, so photos of skies or white walls, etc. end up having large dark spots on them that must be photoshopped out.) I have searched and searched for an equivalent point and shoot digital camera, and own a couple others, but none has ever been like this one.
Summary: A few years ago, I decided to temporarily swith the digital mdue to the fact that I was pregnant and needed a quick way to upload and share photos with freinds. After much research I decided to buy the P200 and I couldn't have been happier. With a baby, you spend a lot of time indoors and you need a camera which takes indoor shots. This camera rocks! Unfortunately, we spilled a bottle of milk on the camera about a year ago and it died.
Summary: I have actually bought 2 of these, one to replace the first that was destroyed in a fire. The features I like most about the camera are the high resolution for the size. To get much higher you need the larger SLR cameras. The other features that make this camera better than most is the ease of use. No complicated menus/settings. There is very little to no delay when you click the button. Many digital cameras have a significant delay.
Summary: After my Sony Mavica CD400 began messing up, I was in the market for another camera. I take artistic photos as a hobby, so I wanted something fairly professional. However, a digital SLR was way out of my price range. My friend who produces Claymation movies, had a suggestion- the Sony DSC-P200. In fact, he raved about it. He told me that, even though he owned a Nikon D-70, he seldom used it, carrying the Sony every where. (Be patient, I'm getting to it!
Summary: When I bought my first P200 back in 2005, I bought it for a trip to NYC. The pictures I took were not only awesome but the camera easily fit into my pocket. The start up is almost instant. Unlike many compacts today, it does have manual controls. You can set the shutter speed and choose between two apertures. The flash is just a little better than most small cameras so you will get indoor shots that you would otherwise miss.
