Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P2 review
Oct 29, 2002

I have had the P1 (What a nightmare) and the P9 that was a exchange (Long Story). Well though the p9 is better, it is by no means a great camera. As any compact camera there are some tradeoffs. And this camera's main trade off is performance in low light, flash, and picture quality. Also there are no manual controls and the manual focus I find not very useful

Problems:

Picture quality in flash conditions is not very good. Get a lot of grainy and overexposed pictures.
Sometimes the picture does not take when the button is pushed. (This is not because the flash is recharging I have had this happen on first shot occurances.)
Lots of out of focus shots just like the P1. I have a Canon EOS 7 and get about 1 out of 100 blurred.. WIth the P9, I get about 1 out of 7. This mainly occurs in low light conditions and I feel this is a problem with the P line of Sony's ..
