Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P2 review

This is one of the best compact size 2MP camera out there right now. Even it is in the same series as P7 and P9, the macro capability of P2 is better than P7 and P9, and way better than P71, even they share the same lens. Indoor flash shot is pretty good when you set the flash level to high, otherwise it is kind of dark. White balance presets is a very useful function that was lacking in the previous generation of P series. P2 is not metal body, unlike P7 and P9, but it feels lighter also. Mpeg HQX is very cool with unlimited length, and the sound capture is lound enough.

Problems:

For $399, it is the most expensive 2MP compact size camera out there. Also, Sony only have 90 days labor (1 year parts though) warranty for all of their digital cameras, this is the worst coverage among all the camera makers.
