Excerpt: In 2001 we purchased our first Sony Cybershot Digital Still Camera (DSC-P71). This camera has photographed everything from the frosty deep-snow mornings working the winter season in Yellowstone National Park, to tolerating the heat and blowing sand of summer in Qatar (near Bahrain) while assigned there with the Air Force. If someone needs a camera, Dad will loan his out.
Excerpt: Considering that the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P71 is an older camera, it's definitely got its advantages. My favorite thing about this camera, being pretty klutzy at times, is that it is extremely solidly built; I've accidentally dropped the camera from a few feet up onto an uncarpeted floor on multiple occasions, and that has never affected its functionality.
Excerpt: SONY products are one of the best on the market. This digital camera is easy to use and to download pictures. The touch screen options allow quick and easy access to picture review. The video option is a great way to have hands on access to a digital picture and video recording. Reviewer is an employee or otherwise affiliated with the brand.
Summary: I Love this camera! In fact, I love it so much that this is the second one I have purchased used on eBay. The first one lasted 10 years and I'll be happy if this one lasts half that long for the modest investment of $20.00. This camera is very simple to use, similar to the old 124 Instamatic cameras Kodak made in the 1970s; basically, point and shoot. Although the pixel size is much smaller than the newer cameras, the image quality is superb.
Was a quick sale and quick shipment... Definitely would buy more.

Summary: We alerady have one of these type of cameras, I bought a couple more cameras because they are easy to use, very durable and hard to mess up. The only problem is finding memory cards that are not at a "break the bank" price.
Summary: Good camera takes nice pics and you can really take the kind of picture u want. I read others reviews on various sites and they all said the truth on them. It is a high end amateur camera. The only things i dont like is you cant use the zoom while recording a video, and it has no on board memory and you have to have a memory stick to capture images. Other than that it is another well made sony product.
Summary: I bought a DSC P41 5 years or more ago. Loved it.. When it was lost I got a 12 mg new Sony and hated it. That's when I bid on the P71. I love it. No blurry photos and its really an amazing little unit for function. The results are that I bid on these cameras and similar for gifts. Skip buying the tiny big mb cameras and go back to these cybershots for pleasure.
Summary: This camera does everything a normal person needs. The video option does not offer sound, so compared to modern units, this is lacking. But for the cheap price, and easy of use, one can purchase a chip and put some 2 thousand digi pix on it.
