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 ...

This is my first digicam & I am pleased with my choice. I really like the ability to put it in my pocket and carry it around. The quality is better than I expected, although I do occassionally need to take another pic in a low light setting, because it's out of focus. I bought the 128mb memory stick, so space is no issue at all. Battery life has not been an issue either, I get about 90 - 120 minutes life with the display running. The only real issue I have is the lag time with the ...

I've discovered several potential pitfalls with digital cameras after using a Kodak DC240 for three years. I bought the CyberShot DSC-P9 to overcome them and it has succeeded. The worst problem I had previously was inability to focus in moderately low light, e.g. under a table. With no manual focus, these shots were completely impossible with my old camera. The Sony has an autofocus (AF) light that overcomes this well (also manual focus I haven't needed to use). Surprisingly, many other ...

I have been using a Kodak DC-50 for well over 5 years and was in dire need of an upgrade that could last me another 5 years. So far I have been very happy with this camera. The quality of pictures are very nice. What made me decide on this camera was the movie mode. This was the only one I could find that was limited to the amount of memory the camera has. I love that option. The video quality is actually quite good for a non video camera. Problems: Sometimes a picture will turn out ...
