Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P200

 

There's now a whole host of digital cameras battling it out in the seven megapixel arena. One such contender is Sony's DSC-P200, which looks set to stir things up.

In a crowded and highly competitive sector of the digital camera market the Sony P200 stands out as a very high quality camera for a comparatively low price. It has plenty of useful features, excellent build quality, good image quality and...

Sony Cyber Shot DSC-P200

Decent performance; compact size; excellent battery life.

Limited manual controls; minimal feature set; image artifacts.

This compact 7-megapixel camera's performance and photos should please undemanding snapshooters looking for maximum megapixels.

Sony DSC P200

 

Sony DSC P200 Review. With a number of manual exposure controls this camera is a cut above more basic point and shoot digital cameras.

Overall picture quality ; Ease of use ; Style and design

Nothing really strikes me

High quality digital camera. Takes great pictures and has an excellent balance between features and ease of use. Recommended.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P200

 

The DSC-P200 is a solid ultracompact camera at a very competitive price.

Stunning design. 7.2 megapixels lets you create large prints. Wonderful macro feature.

Noisy daylight shots. Some color-matching problems. Menus could be better designed.
