Summary: I've had this beauty since December 2005 and amidst all the hoopla over newer and better(?) cameras, I still say that this Sony V3 is just about one of the best I've ever used and I've gone through a wide range from the (also classic) Minolta SRT-101 to the Nikon F3 to the new DSLRs like the Nikon...
Summary: Can there truly be a classic among digital cameras? Technology moves so quickly that one year, let alone five, is an eternity. And yet, try to take a Fuji F30 or F31 away from its owner and you'll get the Charlton Heston NRA line (from my cold dead hands)!
Summary: After 3 years of backpacking in South America, Central America and the Rocky Mountains (plus some urban tourism also) and ~15,000 great pictures taken in 14 countries, our DSCV3 is still going strong.
Definitely one of the best cameras I've ever owned

Summary: 1. I know it really doesn't make much sense to write a review on a camera that has been discontinued for many years, but I just wanted to document that this camera is still one of the best cameras I've ever owned / used.
Summary: This camera is phenomenal and definitely the best camera I've owned. I've had the camera now for about 3 years and it still amazes me with the quality and clarity of photos I get from it. I had a Canon Powershot prior and wish I had this Sony DSCV3 instead.
Summary: This is my 2nd digital camera and after a month I am very pleased. It is the fastest for its category and it still fits in a coat pocket. Yet it has many advanced features you don't find on a small camera.
Summary: Awsome Camera it takes crisp clear pics you can take pic form books and magazine and be able to read the lines from the picture crisp and clear amazing camera. Its a must to own if you love taking pictures. get it here for nothing. [...]
Summary: I bought this camera a few months back and I have been testing it to it's limits! This camera by far is the best digital I ever own, and for the price it really is great!! I know there are better cameras out there, but I can take pro-shots without paying the pro-prices.
Summary: UPDATE July 7, 2006 - After 9 good months, this camera just completely died mid-use. Motherboard fried for no reason! No world-wide guarantee and $700 to fix here in Singapore (yes, much more than the camera cost)! Now the camera is worthless to me since I am not coming back to the USA soon.
