Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P71 review

This is a great camera for beginner. It's strong and well built. The picture quality is great (especially outdoor pictures). Low light shots can be disappointing without flash, if you dislike the use of flash (like me) use twilight mode instead: the pictures produced were impressive (but of course steady hand is needed). Red eye is not a problem for this camera either. Never have trouble transferring pictures to my computer (like corrupted file or something). Good value for its price!
P.S. Some people commented the picture quality is terrible, it's either they expected too high for such low-cost camera or they have not played around much with its features.


- The camera is a bit wide but it fits nicely into my purse, so I don't think it's a problem.
- 13 hours to charge? But the batteries are extremely cheap and stay for a long time!
- Sometimes noise can be encoutered in low light shots, either flash or twilight mode should overcome this.
