Have used the P8 for 3 months in all conditions. I was really surprised how well indoor flash shots turned out. I have recently framed some A4 enlargements of family and friends taken in dark rooms with the flash. The secret is to hold the camera very still. As with all cameras, the outdoor shots are great. I was considering getting the P10, but decided that I didn't need 5mp resolution photos clogging up my memory card, when I can get superb 8x10's or A4's with the P8. I have just started ...

I've been toying around with this camera for about a month now, and I am very satisfied with it. The programmed feature is useful when you've gotten used to the settings, and if you're too lazy, you can always switch it to auto mode. The scene selection is also a helpful addition when auto-mode just doesn't take that "perfect" picture. The movie mode is of excellent quality when in 640x480 mode, and email mode produces smaller videos to which you can email without having a concern about ...

I owned the DSC-P2 before this P8. The only reason I no longer use the P2, though, is that its power button stopped working. That's another story, and is more or less available in my review for the P2. The P8 is pretty much the same as the previous line (P2, P7, P9, I believe), but better. I feel that the P8 has only improved and am very pleased. Just some of the improvements: 1. The power button is much more secure and sturdy! 2. Supports the newer, bigger, better memory sticks. 3. Provides ...

This is my first DigiCam, After I Setup and compare this camera with the others, like CASIO EXILIM EX-Z3 and Olympus Stylus digital 300 at "DigiCam Shop".... I think the picture quality is the best in it's class, and then I BUY ONE. Especially when i used "Twilight Mode" (w/o flash), in the night, i was satisfy with the result, but you must have the tripod to use this "Twilight Mode".. because the shutter speed is set automatically to "2"!!!!.. And also the Macro mode looks very good (10cm) ...

I have owned 6 digital cameras for the past 4-5 years. Sony P8 is my latest one (bought in Sep 03). I feel that I should share my digital cameras experience with you. I have been using camera (single len reflex , automatic and digital) for almost 20 years. I am very picky about image quality. This is my first time I post a review. The reason I brought this camera because, it is very compact and nice looking camera. I finally figure out that having a big camera is not the way to go when I ...

I love this camera, especially when traveling. It's so small, lightweight, and the metal body makes it extra durable (I accidently dropped it from 4' onto concrete - only a tiny scratch and no problems). I considered getting a Canon G3 or Sony DSC-V1, but decided that I needed a compact, easy-to-use camera, and 3.2 megapixels was enough. Great images, day and night. The rechargeable info-lithium battery is great, and lasts a long time. I haven't needed an extra one yet. All around ...

What a lot of camera for your money! My first foray into the 'digital' world, bought mainly for my wife as she has got fed up of being ripped off by film processing costs, plus we can save the pictures to DVD. I thought this would be a good little camera, however was unprepared for the amount of goodies they have put into the tiny frame; gif image mode, mini movie mode, e-mail picture copies produced automatically, clever flash modes, etc. etc. Well worth the cost and is so small my wife can ...
