Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P72 review

You can do better...
This was my second digital camera. My first was the delightful little Sony DSC-U10, so I thought the P72 would be a big step up: better resolution, optical zoom, bigger screen. Unfortunately, it's been a disappointment. The resolution and features are mediocre at best, and the battery life is brutally short. It's a better camera than the little U10, but not by enough since it's also bulkier, less intuitive and less reliable (thanks to the battery issues). My next move will be to a digital SLR (and I'll slip the U10 in my pocket for emergencies).


Poor battery life.
