Excellent pictures for a 2.0 camera if you know how to work it. Indoor photography with the flash can be tricky, but if done right (holding camera extremely still) you will have some very nice pictures. The black and white is the best I have ever seen on a similar camera. EXCELLENT LENS. Problems: Tripod mount is metal, although is placed in plastic peice that can break. Indoor flash photography takes a little skill.

Good pics, good options, HORRIBLE construction, HORRIBLE service Problems: Case around the battery door broke on 93rd day of ownership. Battery door wont stay shut. Battery door was opened exactly 2 times in the first 3 months. Camera was never abused and always traveled in the SONY case. Sony wants $140 to fix. Camera cost $240 new. -crappy construction -extortion-like service -Sony REFUSES to stand behind their product.

I'm looking for firmware upgrade software to adjust the presets of the camera. I think the camera is very nice for a beginner and I made nice pictures with it. But now I'm a bit bored with the presets and want to adjust the camera the way I like. Problems: When I used the camera I thought it is a shame not to be able to adjust any of the shuttertime, lighting etc. The presets are very nice

This was the first digital camera that I bought. I bought it when it first came out. I really like all the features that it has to offer and for a begginer, when I bought it, it was a great camera to get started in the digital world. Since purchasing the camera, I haven't taken any pictures with film, and I print all my pictures at home. Problems: Memory Sticks seem to go on the fritz when you move alot of pictures off it to the computer. Some times I can not view a picture that I've taken ...

I was looking for a cheap cam with good features and satisfying image quality. After checking some canon and olympus models I decided that the best choice would be Sony. It provides really great quality and has good value for money. It costs about 400$ in Poland, so it's a good choice for people who aren't willing to spend too much cash and are happy with the camera's 2 megapixel sensor and image quality. Oh, and it's got really impressive macro. Problems: Some problems with noise when taking ...

This camera was my first digital camera. The image quality is good as long as you dont use the digital zoom. Plan on spending quite a bit on accessories for the camera comes with few. I ended up spending hundreds of extra dollars on this camera's accessories. It's nice that can just point and click and the pictures come out great. You must purchase a rechargable battery or else the alkaline batteries drain within minutes. Overal this camera is conveinent, durable, and worth every penny ...

This is an update of my previous reviews of the DSC-P50, this camera is awesome. I have had it since September 10th of 01 and taken about 2200 pics. I still love it even after having it for so long. I now have a 128, 64, and 32 mb memory stick and can take pics to my hearts content! The image quality is awesome, and that is printing 3x5s, 5x7s and 8x10s! All come out super. The camera is fun, convenient, simple and an all around joy to use! In the time I have had the camera I have had 0 ...

Warning ! this camera has an absolute quality problem. Got it at my office while using a nikon cp 700 at home. the difference is schocking, while my 4 year old nikon produces absolute a-quality photo's the sony produces only blurry, spotty and vague pictures. when sony was confronted they said the quality was to their standards ! Second to that the batteries drain in 15 minutes. My Nikon is somewhat slow but this sony is a bad deal.

Very good image quality. Skin tone is little bit pink to me, but only needs very little adjustment by Photoshop. Exposure is good on all auto seting, only need to adjust exposure to about +0.7 f-stop when shooting large area of cloud as background. Flash is powerful enough for a small camera and flash color balance and exposure are also quite accurate with very little brown cast on shadow. The results of indoor photo with flash are much better than some Canon's entry level digital cameras ...
