What a camera! I've had mine for more than a year now and I love it. It's not a point and shoot camera for beginners, but great if you learn how to use it. The superb lens quality boosts the 1.5 megapixel to compair with most cameras that have 2+ and some with 3+ megapixels. A camera without a high quality lens can't be a great camera no matter how many pixels it has. Problems: None.

Just got this second hand from a professional photographer who's upgrading. Sold it to me for $460. It's only a year old and well taken care of. Solid build quality although the memory card door is slightly creaky. Everything works well, controls are easy to figure out and use. I like the fact that the built-in flash is powerful. There is no fall off on photos. Image quality is superb, even if it is 1.5 megapixels. This camera makes up for the smaller megapixels with truly wonderful image ...

Great tool for photographers that like full control on what's happening. Maximum flexibility and versatility. Manual controls for anything. D700's focus problem fixed. Problems: "Green sky" - cyan cast on overexposed parts of sky

I have had the DSC D770 for 1 year. I can live with the low pix and have some very good prints without using the tif resolution. My BIG complaint is the focus. I don't seem to get the same focus on the screen as through the view finder. I sent the camera back twice temporary repair once and a disclaimer the second time. Anyone have this problem? Herman M. Goldberg hmgesq@aol.com Problems: Focus

Use both as a field camera for sports and a a technical macro for dental images. Camera exceeds expectations. Image quality is adequate and size makes for a good balance between resolution and storage capacity. The battery and availablity of large ata cards makes it a wonderful camera for sporting events. Problems: auto focus is slow.

I have had the camera for nearly a year now. I bought it because of its SLR feel. I like the immage quality although they need brightening up a tad. EV set at +1 works well. Very good looking and good big LCD. Have used 64MB compact flash and card reader since new. Perfect. Five times optical zoom is a good point too. Problems: Focusing poor and slow. Also have a Dynax 700. It knocks the socks off the Sony. Also the optical viewfinder is a bit dim and you eye has to be carefully lined up to ...

So, it's a year old. It's discontinued. It was on sale for less than $700 U.S. and it is the only real SLR "feeling" camera that appealed to me as a "professional" amateur. I bought it to keep family photos fresh on my website. Within two weeks I was shooting material for CNN.com in Kosovo! The relatively weak, 1.5MP resolution is not an issue when all those photos will be compressed to 20kb or less on the webpage. Then, I bought a K80 printer and tried printing the maximum 4MB .tif ...

The DSC-770 is my "combat" camera. Shooting largely for the electronic domain it remains an excellent capture device despite it's modest resolution. Yes, I shoot with my F505V when I'm in need of max. resolution. The "fun" factor of the 505 not withstanding, when you pick up the 770 you feel a bit more serious in attitude, because you've got so much traditional control over the image. (Experienced photographers know this feeling). I figure the bottom won't fall out of the 770 for at least 6-9 ...

Best manual lens and shutter speed anywhere near it's competition, but hard to focus. I stretched a rubber eye shade on to help. Autofocus is slow and doesn't work in low light. Delay in shutter makes it hard to get stop action timed, even in manual mode. Wish I could delete a picture immediately without having to switch modes. Best looking camera on earth! I'm happy with it. Problems: 2x zoom turns off when you take a picture. White Balance is hard to figure out. The word "delete" covers up ...

Excellent features for a camera that can now be had for under $650. I had no problems with the card reader software. Images can be flat and under saturated, but it's better to have the information there than not. Auto white is accurate 98% of the time. Once images go through Photoshop, they print 8 x 10 "very nicely even on an Epson 800 inkjet printer. Problems: Slow Auto focus.
