  • Conclusion: The DSC-V1 was a relatively compact camera, so it's clear the same can't be said of the DSC-V3, but curiously the increase in size has really only improved its usability. Normally I'm not a big fan of chunky cameras for the sake of it but the DSC-V3 strikes an imposing shape with a nice soft rubber...
  • Pros: Very Good resolution, Low noise with some noise reduction, Good macro performance, Excellent build quality, good ergonomics, Proper hand grip, Excellent auto focus speed, Very fast shot to shot times (just over 1 sec), Excellent write speed (up to 4 MB/sec), Good battery life, Optional screw moun...
  • Cons: Tendency to use small apertures, Design fault with jog dial & program shift, About a third of a stop less sensitive than indicated, Limited image parameter adjustment, Poorly fitting flash unit, Lens retracts too quickly in play mode, Sharpening halo artifacts at default setting

Sony Cyber-shot Pro DSC-V3

PC Magazine
14 September 2006
  • Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot Pro DSC-V3 is a lot of camera for the money, but it may have difficulty producing top quality pictures without some tweaking in image-editing software.
  • Pros: Accepts Memory Stick and CompactFlash cards. Takes auxiliary "smart" strobe. Large and bright LCD. Takes pictures in total darkness. Smart battery readout.
  • Cons: Subpar pixel transition ratio means white outlines in high contrast areas. Daylight images are underexposed and shifted too far toward magenta. No focusable diopter and poor placement of optical viewfinder.

  • Excerpt: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-V3 ($699) is a total redesign of the popular DSC-V1, a camera which I wasn't overly enthusiastic about. I have no idea what happened to the DSC-V2 -- probably the same thing that happened to the PowerShot G4.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality (if you watch the aperture), Large LCD display is usable in bright outdoor light and in low light as well, Full manual controls, Robust performance, Laser focusing system -- the best out there, NightFraming lets you take color, flash pictures in zero light, Supports conver...
  • Cons: Camera tends to use a small aperture outdoors, greatly reducing image quality (workaround: force the camera to use a larger aperture), Redeye, Some vignetting, Camera locks up for 8-10 seconds between shots in RAW or TIFF mode, Can't get very close to subject in macro mode, Battery/memory card sl...

[ REVIEW — Sony DSC-V3 ]

DPexpert
7 July 2011
  • Excerpt: : $1099 : 4.9 stars : Sony’s Cyber-shot DSC-V3 is a 7.2 megapixel camera with a 4x optical zoom lens. It is Sony’s top-of-the-range viewfinder camera, competing with the similar Canon Powershot G6 and the slightly cheaper Olympus C7070.
  • Pros: Controls are generally logical and well laid out, except for the image review which has to be activated by turning the mode dial on top of the camera. Most makers these days assign a discrete button to the review function. Focus, white balance, resolution and colour are all excellent, with a tend...

  • Summary: Although not without its flaws – specifically, its speed and handling – the V3 is an outstanding camera with some unique abilities. Image and build quality are as good as you’ll find anywhere, and overall performance is excellent.
