arc97, 3 years on from your post so will you even see this? Anyway good to see a such a fan of the DSC-P100. Is yours still going? I've owned one since 2004 and still love it. The original one survived many international trips and never let me down apart from some sensor dust. I'm on my 3rd having left the first in a taxi in Amman and the second on a golf course in Southend-on-sea but picked replacements cheap on ebay. Still using it 2014, yes a smart phone will probably beat it on pic quality now and despite owning DSLRs too but there's something about this camera!
