Summary: Not so much a good camera anymore. My father has a MA and MFA in photography and graduated from cram brook (one of the top art schools world wide). Point is, I was raised in photography. So my dad bought this camera, tried it, and never used it again. He preferred his old olympus and old school nikons over this. I asked him why he never used the camera after asking if i wanted it, he stated that "this is what your grandma would use.
Sony Powershot puts higher megapixel cameras to shame
5 March 2009
Summary: I had this same model camera back 7yrs ago. I did floral, landscape, and art photography back then and have moved on to other photos and other cameras over the years as the average megapixel count surpassed this one. I purchased a Canon EOS Rebel dSLR for 616$ and a Powershot g10 for 489. After having experimented along with a Kodak 1285, i kept going back to my beat up Powershot images from 7yrs ago when it came time to use the floral images.
Summary: I BOUGHT A P41 SONY BECAUSE OF IT'S REPUTATION AS ONE OF THE BEST MODELS EVER MADE; THE CAMERA NUTS WILL TAKE THIS CAMERA AND HACK IT TO MAKE A TRAIL CAMERA THAT IS FAR BETTER THAN ANY COMMERICAL CAMERA YOU CAN BUY.
Summary: I have a fairly large Olympus that I use for eBay pic's but my recent trip to China called for something smaller, more portable, with long battery life. I borrowed this two-year-old camera from a friend and absolutely loved it. It was easy to use, sturdy, small enough to pop into my pocket, and the batteries lasted the entire time I was there, even though they had, evidentally, been in the camera for several months before I took it.
Summary: This camera takes great pictures and has quite a few nice features. The flash is exceptional for such a small camera. It has single, double, and triple burst modes. Expandable Memory stick makes things very convenient and affordable compaired to other types of memory. At 4.1mp it takes very crisp clear pictures.
