An OK/average first timer camera. I've owned 7 digital cameras so far including Canon G1 and PowerShot S110. I think Sony could do better resolution wise and equipment wise. Problems: Even when I set the camera to the highest resolution. The picture will still have Y res=72 dpi and X res=72 dpi. Canon S110, on the other hand, resulted in much higher X & Y resolutions. Anybody can explain to me what to do to increase the X Y res on my Sony DSC-P50

The camera is okay, but in order to use it you will need to buy on of those infoLithium batteries that cost at least $57.00. That's not all, you will need to be lucky enough to buy the charger (it is almost impossible to find the regular one that sells for $35.00; you will just find the quick charger QV11 which is about $150.00). Besides that, the camera works nice and has good quality. Problems: Hard to find infoLithium battery regular charger and had to buy the expensive quick charger. ...

Have owned for 9 months now and shot over 3500 images. As I live in Bangkok, I am constantly surprised how durable this machine is. Have been out shooting in 45 degree (C) heat with 90%+ humidity and it never fails. The camera got soaked during the recent Songkran festival but never missed a beat. Low light shots get quite a bit of noise and I find the flash pretty useless expect from about 5 feet away. The LCD in bright light is also pretty poor but I generally use it only to frame as the ...

its a good camera. takes good pics and the options are really nice (especially twilight). I'm a bit annoyed at the money i had to spend to get batteries and memory that sony should've included. Oh, and they don't provide a case so i carry my camera in a sock right now scrolls through pics quickly and i like how you can preview 9 pics at a time or 3 at a time and see their specs Problems: no mic :( crappy batteries- buy some rechargeable nimh no case memory sticks is too small other than ...

First, to re-iterate from many other reviews. This camera is not complete out of Sony's box, it copes with a 4Mb Memory stick that'll hold just four images and a pair of nonrechargeable batteries that probably won't last long enough to take them. You have to budget also for a decent size Memory stick (32Mb or bigger) and some NiMH AA cells and a charger for them if you don't have one already. A pair of NiMH cells will last about an hour of use, I've already invested in another pack of four. ...

It worked excellently when I first got it a month ago... Great pictures, nice zoom, love the features... Problems: Now I turn it on, it beeps and reads E:92:00. I emailed Sony support a week ago and have yet to hear back... I'm not looking forward to having to send it back to the factory... Durability seems low on this camera...

I've had mine for about 4 months now and have used it a lot. I got it mainly for the flexibility of the camera overall - I really like the black & white mode for easy copying of newspaper and magazine articles and subsequent OCR scanning. It's got enough features that are standard in analog cameras to make the transition easy, if you're an experienced shutterbug. The one bone I have to pick with the cameras layout is the damned zoom control: I'm constantly accidentally hitting the zoom ...

First digital camera. I have had maybe a year now. Thought it was expensive, $400 to get the 2.3 pixel camera. Bought accessories, the Lithium battery pack and a 64 meg memory stick. Number of pictures one can take on camera outlasts the camera's battery life, even with a Lithium battery pack. Two hours tops is all you can count on. To use the camera effectively, one MUST read the book on how to zoom in on close objects. Initially close objects (like taking a picture of a picture[for ...
