Sony Cyber Shot DSC-F88 review

 

Sony Cyber Shot DSC-F88

Excellent macro capabilities; decent burst mode; flexible exposure controls; strong image quality; very solid battery life.

Long shutter lag under low-contrast lighting; few scene modes.

An easy-to-use camera with notable macro capabilities.

Review of Sony's five megapixel DSC-F88 digital camera

 

Anandtech got their hands on Sony's DSC-F88 five megapixel, 3x optical zoom, and 300 degree rotating lens digital camera (yes, the one that's perfect for all the narcissists in the house). It can also shoot video at VGA 640x480 resolution at 16 frames...

Sony Cybershot DSC-F88 Digital Camera Camera

In our lab-based image-quality tests, the DSC-F88 earned average scores overall, coming in a little below average for exposure and color accuracy, and a little above average for sharpness (due in part to its 5.1 megapixel CCD). Its battery life, on the...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F88

 

Pocketable camera combines a rotating lens with an optical viewfinder.

The Cyber-shot DSC-F88's design is both clever and functional. A quick trigger and relatively compact design make this model one of the more interesting point-and-shoots we've seen.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F88 Review

 

Never shy of giving the consumer an almost bewildering array of choices, in May 2004 Sony added yet another (its fifth) 5 megapixel, 3x zoom camera, the DSC-F88 to its 2004 range. Seasoned Sony watchers will immediately recognize the inner swivel lens...
