I acquired this camera back in 2004 and gave my wife the P92 we already have. Even though I have a D90 and D300S I still use it today as I have the 40M marine pack for it. It is slow to respond and shoot, although faster than the P92, however it took and still takes better pictures than my current W115 or my sons W220. I would still use it for day to day snaps but the W115 fits in the top pocket of my suit when I am abroad on business. This camera will continue to accompany me and my D90 and ...

I bought this digital camera five years ago. Despite being old, it still works fine today. I likely plan on upgrading soon since it's old and dated compared to even the cheapest digital cameras, and I'm disappointed with it. First the pros, this camera has solid construction. It's lasted almost five years without issues, and I can drop it on carpet without thinking twice. This camera also as a good profile of settings on the software. Unfortunately, I'm not very impressed with image quality. ...

My second Sony camera, bought in Jan 2005. It looks a bit cheap, with lots of plastic, and it was actually cheap, but I took more than 10,000 snaps with it, traveled everywhere in various difficult conditions and it still works fine, just like the DSC-P72 I had bought in 2003. Beware: after 9999 shots, the picture's number is reset to 1, despite the presence of a … useless … extra digit. The camera is light and fits easily into jeans’ pocket thanks to its shape, but doesn't offer a very good ...

Considerando-se que a camera não é profissional, é feita para uso amador, ela é excelente. Muitos dos proprietários que dizem que ela é ruim, certamente são tão leigos que devem acreditar que pelo fato de ter 4mp, ela deveria estar no mesmo patamar de uma D2H. Reclamam de qualidade de imagem de uma máquina de us$200. Problems: Acessórios são demasiadamente caros.

Hello.. I bought my wife the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 after reading reviews from another website; I’m a Fuji man myself. Anyway I have noticed that the shots all lack punch and appear to have a colour cast.. I was expecting better from Sony! Problems: Handles bright days appallingly; to much distortion with Lenz. Grass or sand comes out terrible and the skin tones are anything but natural.. I’m very disappointed with this camera; I have seen cheaper models do better with less effort.

I got this camera an year back and extensively used it under all modes. I am disappointed with the camera and the pictures are not up to quality. I compared the photos with canon and olympus of the same megapics and they are simply amazing. Apart from the quality of the pics, there are exposure problems. Most of the photos are under exposed. Brightness and clarity missing in the photos. The camera has a rigid construction and the buttons and features are easy to use. The look and feel is good. ...

never one to not try out a sony, , this was the worse Sony I ever tried out. What a mess of a camera. Horrible photos Problems: Usual problems with small cameras.I was not particularily impressed with detail outside at times because of noise. This is not Zeiss lens. Everything is a tradeoff but to have Sony camera with you for around 150 bucks at all times, you would think you can't go wrong and you would be wrong. This is horrid

I bought this camera about 2 months ago and have shot just over 1600 pictures with it. Not a lot, but enough to give me an overall feel for the camera. Overall the images are fairly good, but it seems that the JPEG compression is sometimes quite noisy and the images get fuzzy. This is particularly frustrating on landscape images where there is a lot of contrast in lighting. Some parts of the picture may be sharp but where there is less light it may be very noisy. The JPEG compression ...

I had this camera as a CHRISTmas gift from my wife, and so far I found it really good. I'm impressed with the quality of pictures, it will be better to have a better capacity of memory stick, at least 128mb will be okay, i'm planning to get a 256mb or higher memory stick. Problems: LCD is quite bit small.

Good value for money. I dont think you can get better for what you are paying. Sharp pictures, fast, easy to use even if you want to change settings. I had this camera for the past 5 weeks and never did any touch up to the pictures, only for red eye just two times. I got a 512mb memory and it is great, enough for video and pictures for a days shooting. Do not compare this camera with an SLR but I can assure you that you will get great pictures even if you are new to photography. Problems: None
