Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P71 review

Was going on vaca, so decided to buy a digital camera. Played with it a few days, and found some pictures had noise in them (horizontal striations). Went on vaca and took some very nice pictures, but every once in a while, the noise was back. I like the quality of the camera and the pictures, but... (read problem section)


Tried to contact sony about the noise problem, but it's nearly impossible to speak with someone at sony on the phone. On the Sony web site, I required a repair, gave them the info on the camera and was informed it would cost a flat fee of $170.00 to evaluate and repair. I'm not very happy with sony, as I HAD been a supporter of their products. I guess that's what happens when you deal with a large, insensitive, out-of-touch company. So, buy something else instead!
