DP Review
6 August 2006
  • 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 hand grip and cool metal surfaces. Also it does look better in black.
  • 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 mounting lens adapter, Very large 2.5" LCD with anti-reflective coating, Multiple media support (MS Pro & CF), External flash support via Hot-shoe, Fast USB 2.0 transfers, Combine...
  • 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

  • Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-V3 is an advanced digital camera with a high quality innovative technique on board. The high resolution of 7 Megapixels is the result of years and years of innovations in the CCD industry. The user friendliness of the V3 is excellent. The way the menu works makes it also easy for starting photographers to start taking pictures immediately. The advanced user will dive into the comprehensive settings straight away to use them in practice.

  • 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. If you’re looking for a semi-pro camera, the V3 should be high on your shortlist. I have been using my sony DSC-V3 for over 2 years. So far my photos are all saved as jpeg in best quality and they are excellent.

Sony Cyber Shot DSC-V3

  • Excerpt: Après l'énorme succès du V1, Sony veut renouveller l'opération avec une nouvelle version de son compact star. C'est ainsi que le V3 est né. Et vu la qualité de cet appareil, il n'y a pas de raisons que son succès ne soit pas aussi franc. Le V3 est encore plus rapide et performant, l'optique est très soignée et, de ce fait, l'image est très bonne.
  • Pros: Prise de vue la nuit, Qualité de fabrication
  • Cons: Léger bruit

  • Excerpt: Trascorsa l'era dei 5 megapixel, nasce, come qualcuno dice, quella dei 7 e 8 milioni di punti. La Cyber-shot DSC-V3 è una di queste macchine, una fotocamera che, con quella ricchezza di fotodiodi, incorpora una serie di prestazioni che la elevano per meriti propri alla vetta delle fotocamere digitali "compatte".
  • Pros: qualità di immagine eccellente, assenza quasi totale di aberrazioni, rumore scarso a tutte le sensibilità, grande display TFT...
  • Cons: corpo di dimensioni generose, ergonomia discutibile, il sistema di bilanciamento del bianco potrebbe essere migliore, ottica un po' lenta...
