After using the DSC-P71 for a month or so I have found it to be a really good camera. I have had solid performance from it, and have not had any problems. I like all of it's features, and their relative ease of use. The picture quality is quite good to very good. It took a little practice to understand how to use each of its features, but the results were worth it. This is a really good camera for someone who wants to start learning about digital photography. It can do everything for ...

I bought this camera in exchange of my DSC P31 as I needed zoom ,the P31 was perfect size for me and took good quality photos but no zoom. I am very happy we my new P71 pictures are coming out very sharp and zoom is also very sharp indoor picture can also be good once you learn to play around with it. Well to me this was a good buy compact take with me everywhere and brillant results. My only complaint is that the viewfinder should be more to the far end of the camera like in the P31 also the ...

This camera has proved to be easy to use and produces exceptional quality photos. Quite good value for money, especially if buying from the Net, but would be even better if a case were included. The cost of memory stick peripherals (e.g. floppy disk adapter at eighty pounds) is prohibitive and Sony ought to review their pricing policy here. For some reason, the user manual specifies that the P71 cannot use AA alkaline batteries at all (other P-series cameras can). Doesn't explain why and ...

Great camera that makes good pictures. It's a little tricky to get the best out of it but when you read the manual and try a bit you will get a perfect quality photo. If you want to get a easy to use camera this and dont wanna read or try the functions this is not what you want, else go for this one it great believe me ;) Problems: The only thing is the enter-button that is in the middle of the funtion buttons, makes it hard to push good

What can I say about P71 ? Construction: 2 rechargeable AA 1750mAh batteries. Small, but easy to handle. Only missing protection for LCD. Features: 3x optical zoom, 3 mp, 5 wb options, USB, it is a perfect point-and-shoot machine, who wants manual controls - at this price, I mean? Missing only sound in videos... Image quality: I didn't have any problems with green. Some pictures are blurred, nothing more. I can print 10x15 photos without problem. Ease of use: I have almost everything I think ...

I am new to digital photography and I have read the differing opinions of the p-71. At the moment I am convinced that it is a solid camera for daily use. Features are limited although for this price it does very well. Thumbs up for the p-71. Problems: Not yet.

I have taken about 4000 pictures with this camera. It is an excellent little camera. Relatively fast start up times and minimal shutter lag. Good run time on AA rechargeables (kudos to Sony for including a set with the camera). Zooms fairly quickly from wide to telephoto. Nice integrated lens cover. Good construction, albeit plastic it still has a sturdy feel to it. Very good LCD display. Handy display of shooting parameters when shutter is half pressed (shutter and aperture). I ...

Having used 35mm SLR's for many years, I bought the P71 recently as an "interim" point and shoot camera that anyone in the family could use. We have experienced non of the problems with "erie greens" or blue flashes. The colours have been accurate and the pictures quite sharp. The focussing light is an absolute dream! I tried the Olympus C720UZ and had nothing but problems with low light focussing. Not so with the P71. Backyard night party shots have been surprisingly good, considering ...
