This is my first Digicam. I decided to part with my SLR. The camera is loaded with cool features and is easy to opperate. There hasn't been a need to look through the manual as of yet. Quality of the pictures are great. Very sharp and good color gamut. Used only two AA batteries as opposed to four like other cams. Great camera for the price paid. Problems: USB and DC cover a bit flimsy. Uses memory sticks (a bit more pricier than Smart of Flash mem.)

I purchased as a backup unit. It takes very good pictures and smokes on the Nikon 775 I had. No Optical zoom, but with my experience all small cameras have lame zooms compared to my UZI. Battery use is the best I have seen to date in any digital. The auto USB works seemlessly. Pictures tend to be a bit dark. Have lots of light on subject. Inherited from small lens. I made 4x6 and 8x10 prints on my Canon S-600 they look great. I think best buy for compact camera and uses AA batteries. Sony ...

I bought this camera for the ease of a simple point and shoot. It lives up to that billing. I also own a c-700 that drives me crazy every time those chromatic abbirations appear(almost every daylight shot with a high lighted backround). With the sony I have barely noticed any. As for not having a zoom lense. I knew excatly what I was buying. Now I get physically closer with the sony. This camera performs just like a 35mm p&s, but with a lot more options. Image quality is good for 2mp. ...

I own a Sony 707, a 5 mp camera, and wanted a small back up camera. I was considering the Minolta X, but after determining that it had a short battery life, [and the battery is expensive], I opted for this little gem, for half the price. For a 2MP camera, the quality of my 8 x 11 prints are suppurb. The two double AA's last a long time. Even though it lacks an optical zoom, the semi wide angle lens does the job for me. I paid $219, and in my mind, this is a "ton of camera and ...

I bought a Olympus D-230BRIO 2.0MP. Then I returned it because it over exposed my pics. I bought the DSC-P31. I have gotten some great pics on this cam. Come see some of my pics. Negitive Art feature is great. Black and white, another excellent feature. Saves to the memory stick very fast. http://www.photo.net/photodb/user?user_id=483888 Problems: No Macro mode, no lens thread(not really a must but you know...) On key circle, its hard sometimes to push the exact middle to select an option, ...

Best 2 megapixal camera for the money, without a doubt. Had it for 3 weeks now and use it every day. I wish the LCD screen was bigger but I can live with it. The little door to access the USB and video out is pretty flimsy and will eventually break, I'm sure. None the less, compare it to similarly featured cameras, nothing comes close for the money. Problems: Pushing the "OK" button just right takes some practice. LCD has no cover and could get damaged easily.

Not as expensive as you might think with all the features it has. Plus it's a Sony!

Construction: It has a plastic body but it feels sturdy enough. Buttons are fairly large and gives a firm feel. Only problem is with the 'joypad' to navigate through the menus. It is sometimes hard to press downwards. Instead, you will mis-press in other directions. Seems like Sony are beginning to implement these multi-directional controls in their products (MD, camcorder, etc), which is hard to control sometimes. Features: Fixed focus with 3x digital zoom (makes the picture blur), auto or ...
