Sony Cyber-shot DSC-L1 review
This camera is strictly a point & shoot camera. There are only very few manual settings, but in full auto mode it usually 'guesses right' and produces colorful and properly exposed images. It's extremely fast in operation for a camera in this class. Auto focus is fast and accurate and image reviewing is instantaneous. Also, the time between pressing the button and actually taking an image is less than a few tenths of a second.
The used lens is good, but not excellent and has some typical distortions and some abberation artifacts. Also, it produces flare artifacts rather easily. When zooming in the lens becomes a lot slower, which is visible by the darkening of the view on the LCD.
The LCD at the back of the camera is small, but bright and has good colours. For setting the camera options it's good enough, but for reviewing images a larger screen would have been nice. Also, the lack of a TV output is somewhat disappointing.
The camera case is metal and plastic. The camera feels solid and is heavy enough to hold comfortably.
All in all, if you're looking for an ultra compact point & shoot I can only recommend this. If you're looking for something more advanced, look further...
