Sony Cyber-shot DSC-V1 review

I tried out this camera in the store the other day and WOW does it have great AF! I almost bought it on the spot (and I wasn't actually shopping for another DC at the time).

Have you ever handed your DC to someone (unfamiliar with DC's) and they press the shutter button and nothing happens because they don't hold it down long enough? (due to the slow shutter reponse of DC's). It happens to me all the time. Anyway, the DSC-V1 actually works like a real camera! You press the button and it takes the picture (like a film camera or a DSLR).


Not sure how the body will stand up, it's plastic.
