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.
