Summary: i had this camera for about 15 months...and everything worked great...pictures came out sharp and vivid then the black screen LCD issue came about...and it looks like i'm not the only one...and i thought this camera was doomed until i realized a simple solution.
Summary: I've owned 35mm SLR and point-and-shoot cameras for almost 30 years and have to say I'm very pleased with this camera. The high points: -- 30 flash pictures so far and no red eye -- Size. The DSC-P51 slips easily into a jacket pocket but feels substantial in your hand. -- Image quality.
Summary: First of all - the information that...is showing is incorrect. I have my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P51 sitting in front of me - it DOES have a 2x optical zoom as well as a 6x digital zoom. We bought this camera mostly to take pictures of our kids to e-mail to family overseas. Something it does very well.
Excerpt: bought this camera to replace an aging Kodak, as it was getting a bit fussy in it's old age. When shopping for a new camera, I based my choice on three criteria - megapixels, price, and style.
Summary: this is a very nice digital camera, ideal for a first. you should not, however, take it as a substitute for a 35mm camera coz the quality just won't catch up. outdoor pictures are brilliant, even in the smallest possible format (which lets you store approx.
Summary: An excellent little camera with superb pictures. It's my first proper digital camera and I've been very impressed with its performance. I have noted, however, that it struggles to focus in low light, even with the infra-red focus assistance.
Summary: Picture quality, build, functionality, options, design, etc are all as good as you would expect from Sony. Battery life in particular is very impressive. As is start up time & time between shots. However there are a couple of little quirks.
Summary: Fantastic camera ~ easy to use ~ even for a beginner like me! This is the perfect camera for those moving on from a point and shoot 35 mil to a digital. The rechargable batteries and charger make this camera an affordable one to operate I love it.
Excerpt: That's by far one of the most bought cameras made by Sony. It's easy of use features are amazing. I have bought it nearly a year ago and the quality of the pics leaves everyone gobsmacked. It's really use to use and has a very intuitive menu.
