Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P9 review

I have been using this camera now for over 4 months. I even took it on holiday around Germany, Austria, and Slovenia and took 1582 shots. I bought the camera because I wanted something small I could just put on my pocket, but good enough for holidays.

The camera is solid and takes fabulous photos during normal daylight. This is the optimal point and shoot camera. I do occassional have to change the ISO settings manually, because I think the camera chose wrong, but that is the exception.

There is always a trade-off between size, quality, and price. I would say that the quality is exceptional for daylight/well lit shots. For a take along camera, this is it. I always take it with me, because I never know what is going to present itself. I love it.


- Absolutely poor at dusk/night shots.
- About 1 in 15 shots blurry.
