Summary: I love this camera. I'm not going to get into a bunch of details, but I've taken photos aboard an aircraft carrier, inside museums, out in the swamps, at sunrise on the beach... never less than outstanding quality photographs - any bad photos were my fault entirely.

Summary: I bought this camera 6 months ago but I waited with writing this review until I have enough experience with it. All in all, it's the best choice available in its category, i.e. a compact camera for high-quality photography and unlimited video capability. Plus: -> Compactness.

Summary: I had my older sonyFD88 stolen, and was devastated. After a few weeks of undecided confusion, I made a list of all that was important to me in a small camera. I think I made the right choice. The Sony V1 won out, hands down.
Summary: I was looking for a compact camera with some manual features. I was considering Kodak LS753 / Sony P100 / Canon S410 I found this Sony DSC-V1 open box and bought both DSC-V1 and Canon Powershot S410 from BESTBUY to compare the quality.
Summary: I must begin by explaining that I got back into the digital camera market having to replace my Kodak DC240 which was purchased (and cutting edge with 2.0MP) in 2000. The DC-240 finally went dead and I took it to Best Buy who, on their warranty, gave me the purchase value towards another camera, and...
Summary: Let's face it, THE reason to buy a digital camera is to get many features in a small package. The V1 does just that and takes fantastic photos. It's basically the F717 in a point-and-shoot package.
This camera is the most amazing camera i have ever seen

Summary: Hi there After my very bad experience with a casio camera, I bought this camera for just about 150 dollars more than the casio had cost me. this camera however, was about a thousand times better than the casio camera. the nightshot is excellent. movies are great.
Summary: I bought the sony dscv1 about 3 weeks ago and I've already taken more than 600 photos with it. I have to say it is almost perfect... It's difficult to believe how this tiny little camera take superb photos with extremely true-live colors.
Summary: I purchased this camera to eliminate the use of my film camera. It was worth it. The picture quality is just as good if not better than my Canon Elph APS camera. If you are a point and shot photographer use the Auto mode. If you like more control over your shots, you can do that also.
Summary: I bought this camera to replace a 4-year old 1.6MP Sony MAVICA after spending the last two months doing research and reading a lot of reviews. Every camera I looked at had its Pros and Cons. I just had to decide which ones were going to have an affect on my final decision.
