Sony DSCU60 Digital Camera Reviewed

Digital Home Thoughts
1 March 2004
  • Summary: Looking a bit like R2D2, the Sony DSCU60 is a reasonably priced 2MP digital camera that has been designed from day one to be waterproof to a depth of 1.5m (5ft). Not a bad starting point for anyone looking to get their first digital camera, particularly if they've got a penchant for snorkelling. Read on for the full review!
  • Pros: You can use it underwater!;, Easy to hold;, The box contains everything you need without further initial outlay: rechargeable batteries, charger, Memory Stick, USB cable.
  • Cons: Might be a bit tricky for left-handed people;, The auto-focussing is a little bit on the slow side;, It can be a bit tricky to see what you are photographing underwater.

Expert Review

12 July 2003
  • Excerpt: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-U60 ($299) is probably the most bizarre-looking digital camera out there. But it's looks aren't what make it unique. Rather, it's the ability to go underwater, without having to buy a special case, that defines the U60. But don't get me wrong, this isn't a serious scuba camera: in fact, it can only go 5 feet deep. But for its price, there's really nothing else like it.
  • Pros: Waterproof for up to 5 feet, Very responsive, Durable plastic body, Surprisingly good battery life, NiMH batteries + charger included, Pretty good photos considering the size of the camera
  • Cons: Poor movie, playback modes, No real controls, like white balance and exposure compensation, No optical viewfinder, Clunky menus, Playback zoom feature doesn't allow scrolling, Redeye, Small LCD

Röviden: Sony DSC-U60

17 October 2003
  • Summary: Idén nyáron hány napot aggódott végig a strandon, nehogy valami baja legyen a méregdrága digitális fényképezőgépnek? Valamiért a vizitúrákon sem sok digitális fényképezőgépet lehet látni. A homok és a víz nem igazán tesz jót ezeknek a finom műszereknek. A Sony U60-nal sem célszerű ugyan 5-10 méteres mélységre menni, de a fröccsenő vizet és homokot biztosan kibírja. Kipróbáltuk!
