Sony DSC-P5 Review
Sony have now rearranged all of the cameras connectors to be conveniently placed together behind a rubber cover on the back of the camera. From left to right: DC-IN (from supplied AC adapter / charger), USB digital I/O (cable supplied), A/V output (for use with supplied cable, ends in video and audio RCA jacks). It would have been nice to have a hinged plastic door here, I'm always cautious of the rubber types, especially considering that you have to open this one every time to charge the camera. (Perhaps a docking / charging station solution next time).
Camera Base / Tripod Mount
Flash / AF Assist Lamp
The P5's flash unit is mounted on the left side of the camera front, beside it is a photocell which is used to regulate the flash output. Beside this is the viewfinder window and the next 'dot' is the new AF assist lamp which appears to be a similar unit to that used on the S75/S85. The AF assist lamp comes on automatically for exposures of approximately 5 EV or less, it uses an orange coloured light to assist the camera's contrast detect AF system.
