DSC-P9 vs new models. (Good, but get the new ones.) DSC-P9 was my first digital camera and it has been one year since I'm using it. Its overall performance is commendable and I still think this is the best snap shot digicam amongst its competitors. Now, DSC-P9 is my main camera for all ocassions thanks to its compact size and light weight. The features of this camera is only enough for those who want to 'snap' photos. It only has auto mode which was one of the main cons of this camera. No ...

Foul with Memory Stick. Back in september 2002, I decided between P9 and Canon PowerShot S40, as many people probably did in this category. What won the day was the small size and the video limited by memory-card capacity only. The camera fulfills my expectations, very handy, can be carried everywhere, batteries are fine. Despite the relatively "cheap" lens, the image quality is pretty good. The dissappointment came three months after the purchase, when I heard first rumours about the fact ...

This is a very portable camera that is small enough to be tucked into a jacket pocket, which means that you are likely to take it with you wherever you go. Shots taken outdoors are crisp and sharp with good colour balance and exposure. In fact, as good as I have seen from any top quality digital camera. Battery life is good and, I have never found it necessary to purchase a spare battery. Like a lot of other digital cameras, it is essential to purchase a 128Mb Memory Stick. Problems: As ...

Good camera for the ones who really like to point and shoot. Settings are easy. Only thing I dislike is the max memory of 128 mb per stick (lack of memorystick pro support). This makes the movie-option a bit silly. Macro shoots and evening shoots are great, better then Fuji or Canon. Problems: Will not work without driver installation under Windows XP. Still need CD-Rom.

Small, daily use cameras with lots of useful features. I found this camera to be exceptionally easy to use. I bought it the day before I flew out to Super Bowl 37. Without the manual or any training on how to use the thing, I was able to take 296 pictures over the course of four days and three short movies. This camera is perfect for those who need to take pictures that are clear, crisp and can be downloaded quickly without a lot of hassle. Insurance adjusters, real estate agents, ...

This unit was purchased to replace my original Olympus Stylus "toss-around" camera. After reading some of the reviews here, it seems that before you purchase any camera, evalutate your intended use. This isn't a professional camera, but it outstanding in its category and occasionally astounding in what it can deliver. Take some time to experiment with the different modes - you'll be surprised at what you can acheive. Image quality is excellent - though if you're going to evaluate ...

I have been using this camera now for over 4 months. I even took it on holiday around Germany, Austria, and Slovenia and took 1582 shots. I bought the camera because I wanted something small I could just put on my pocket, but good enough for holidays. The camera is solid and takes fabulous photos during normal daylight. This is the optimal point and shoot camera. I do occassional have to change the ISO settings manually, because I think the camera chose wrong, but that is the exception. T ...

The fact that it is so small is the reason I bought it, the size, being the most important factor -In my opinion it has the best image quality, and ease of use within the range of really small/portable cameras. I considered buying the Canon Powershot which does have options to overide various settings manually, and does have a better image, but it was larger than the P9. This would defeat my objective of being able to carry a camera around anywhere. I also was not that botherd about manual ...

DON´T LISTEN TO ALL THE "BAD" REVIEWS OF THIS CAMERA! IT RULES! I bought the Sony DSCP9 a month ago and i have enjoyed the fact that this camera actually fullfills every expectations one could have to a professional digital camera. The image quality is excellent, even in A3 format!! The pictures shown in the full-review on this site is totaly misleading. They give the reader a wrong idea of the camera. This camera is not comparable to other digital cameras! And the design and construction is ...
