Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P72 review
Compared to the DSC-P73 that followed it (see my review), the DSC-P72 offers less features (a.o. shutter speed limited to max 2", less modes), has a slow memory access (using Memory Sticks), the same tiny screen and, most of all ... is rather bulky (though the grip is excellent thanks to the rubber elements).
For the rest, you'll find the same positive characteristics as the ones described in the DSC-P73 review that I posted: very steady construction, easy to use in all conditions, yet full of options and producing good flash and non-flash pictures.
A good camera in its range - 3MP, 3X optical zoom, VGA movies - but a camera that couldn't stand the comparison with the models that Sony released in 2004.
I took more than 10,000 pictures with it but had a problem with the flash at some point.
The cam got fixed by some habile "do-it-yourselfer" ...
while the Sony Service had proposed me to pay 150 Euros just to fix the flash !!
