Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P52 review

I recieved this camera as a gift. My initial impression was some what mixed. I found the picture quality very good for an enrty level camera. The over all body design, however, is poorly laid out. Operating the zoom while shooting one handed is near impossible. Trying to use the DSC-P52 two handed has its own issues, your left hand never seems to fall in a comfortable spot. Taking picutures in rapid succession does not happen. Mostly due to the flash having an excessive recharge time of about 2.5 - 4.0 sec. The menus are fairly easy to navigate and simply laid out. The DSC-P52 is a good starter camera. Although it will leave you wanting, especially in the comfort area. Battery life on this camera is somewhat short as well.


- Poor ergonomics
- Flash Recharge time is excessive
- Zoom is to short
- Poor battery life
