I was surprised to see such a polarisation of users' opinions on this model, but am pleased to say that I am very happy with it. No "green problems"! I've bought it as an "interim" camera until I believe the time is right to purchase a fully-fledged digital SLR (probably in a year or two). Of course I'd like more control over things, but for what it claims to be, this seems to me to be a damned good camera. Problems: None

I was initially attracted to this camera by the features and the overall feel/construction. After torturing the people at the store for an afternoon (making them take the same picture and print it with different cameras), I settled on a camera (The DCS-P71) that actually we had been forced not to print as we could not find a printer that would take the memeory stick and print plain paper (to move to photo paper would have no been a head to head match). I decided this was not a big deal ...

As a beginner I entered the world of digital photographing not knowing what camera to buy. As a big Sony-fan I looked into the camera’s Sony had to offer and talked to people who had any experience with digital photographing if Sony cameras were any good… I came to the conclusion, this camera was very good value for the money! After having used it for some time now I must say, the image quality is very good. For me there are enough features on it to learn how to get the best out of this camera. ...

After trying out on night shot,I find its not as bad as what other say that its very noisy on the night shot photo.I've got very sharp and clear marco shot n clear photo on the daylight shot too.High standard n expectation need to pay for the price.Never expect too much on this price.If wanted to compare do compare with the same price range n you'll find the best taste of yours choice.A fully charged Sony Ni-Mh 1750mAh battery can last me a solid of more than 6 hrs shots with flash and LCD on. ...

This is the fourth digital camera I've owned and one of my many Sony products. Previously, I've owned an Agfa e1680, Toshiba PDR-M5 and a Nikon Coolpix 990. I sold the Coolpix 990 in hopes to upgrade to a Sony DSC-F707, but between the time I sold that camera and some recent events, I was unable to purchase the 707, and decided to wait until the next generation digitals came out later this summer - I'm still looking for that "perfect" digital camera in my mind to suit my needs. In the ...

Well built and very user-friendly, but limited range of options for controlling images. This camera does work with Alkaline batteries (Manual says it doesn't) but they must be good quality (Ultra-type) batteries - with normal alkaline in my experience the camera doesn't start up. Images are very sharp, but there is a slight green cast sometimes evident on some samples - I suspect there are different revisions of the firmware around - shame Sony don't make updates available. Problems: 1. No ...

Selling away my Camera half price. No serious problem except the photos are not clear enough. Problems: 'Enter' button is not easy to press. To compound the problem, there is no multi file select to choose a group of photos in the memory stick for deletion. Delete one by one is tedious using that stupid ENTER button everytime. Gotto click two times in the process to delete every picture. Very troublesome. Formatting is not the solution because I do not want to delete all pictures. The ...

A great camera at its price level. For a novice, perfect. Have had it for a couple of days and went for this model after comparing loads of other models and reading reviews. Don't regret. Have managed to take great pictures either in and outdoors and I must say indoors turned out better. Quite attractive, everybody wants to see it! Easy to use, light, the batteries last a lot even turning it on and off all the time... I'm pleased with what I've got. Problems: - 13 hour charger. Extra battery ...
