Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S800 review

Just bought one of these for a work collegue and took a few test shots, am very impressed. Low light results are very good and the lens/sensor combination gives very good resolution especially for this class of camera. Flash is adequate. Controls are well labeled and easy to use.
I would easily recommend this camera for anyone looking for a pocketable low light performer at a reasonable price. one of the good Sony models.

Problems:

Limited to only 320x240 movies mode.

This camera has now been used in a couple low light jobs and its low light performance is excellent! This camera can practically do what the old Fuji F30 my friend has can do, but with the bonus of extra zoom and a little more resolution.

If this camera had image stabilisation and HD movies it would be perfect.
