Summary: Frist I would like to start off with I should have bought one of these Sony Cyber - Shot long time ago. Sony has know to be the top of all camers for some time now. About 3 weeks ago I seen though E-bay a Sony camera,So a bought it. Unknowing just what I readly had. I took it in and had it repromgram in to fix my needs,That when the good news came out about the camera. I had features on there that I may never ever used,But if and when I do,I have it all & some.
Summary: This camera is great to travel for different events. My fiance owned one previously to me buying this one used for my teenage daughter. For example, I have a powershot camera and when taking the same picture from my camera and my fiances camera the same shot comes out great from my end and completely blurry from his end from time to time. Like I said this camera is great if you just want a basic camera for taking pictures.
Summary: Not the newest model on the market but was perfect for a teenage to take with her. I won't have to worry about her losing it and being out a lot of $. I bought this used and she and I both are very happy with it.
Summary: I have had this camera for about three years now and overall I have really enjoyed it. It's very simple to use and my pictures have turned out great. The only problem I have with it is the delay time after you press the button. It's excellent for still shots, but not so great if you take lot's of action shots like I do. But for the most part, I enjoyed my Sony cyber-shot.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P51 - Good First Digital Camera
28 December 2006
Summary: Pros: Compact size, ease take pictures, ease to download into computer. Cons: Slow recharge of flash. Problems with auto-focus. The Bottom Line: A good, inexpensive, easy to use first digital camera. If you want to buy a digital camera...try this one out. My Review: I purchased this camera as my first venture into digital photography. If you are going to buy a digital camera, be prepared to buy all the extras that you will need.
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. The Kodak was only 1 megapixel, which limits your picture size to medium big (1024x768) when transferred to the computer. Good for most basic uses but not great. I also didn't want to spend a lot on technology that is in it's infancy still, and I might as well look good doing it.
Excerpt: I love this camera, first because it was a gift from someone special. And, second, because it suits my purposes just fine. It's a good size, handy, not bulky with lens attachments. I like it for it's complete portability [I've taken pictures on the road, and while driving --which I don't advise anyone doing] The visual display shows exactly which picture you are taking so you get a 'preview'.
Pros: Numerous settings/Lots of choice & great software
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. HOWEVER I feel I owe it to all Amazon users to tell them of my experience when the camera stopped working after only 18 months of careful use.
