Summary: Because of its being only 7+ MP (larger pixels), it has great image quality when shooting infrared. All you need to do is get the filter adapter, add a ND8 filter and a red 25 or 29 filter (I prefer 29) and shoot in nightshot mode.
Excerpt: First things first. All the good things written about the Sony Cybershot V3 camera are really good. I was looking for scaled down, "pro" quality camera with looks and feeling which enables very quick use in all situations. I am taking pictures mostly "on the run".
Summary: I love the camera and all of its features, but it keeps coming up with file error and I lose some pictures. I don't recommend this camera for people going on long trips or taking pictures of extremely important events that can't be repeated.

Summary: It has dual memory slots for compact flash and ...SD i think is the other one. It has no memory on it's own, so you do need to get one. The battery life is pretty good. It plugs into the wall to recharge, so no more running down to the store for a pack of AA's The photo quality is very good, even at...
