Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P30


Chose this over other cameras because of the all important optical zoom, which others in the same price range seemed to lack and only have the low quality digital zoom. Overall the camera feels solid. I've dropped it a few times and it's still in one...

Low priced

I wish it came with more


The camera was very appealing to the eye. When I started using it I was amazed by the beautiful features available. Before 10 mins was up, I was watching the battery life enter its final moments. It was upsetting. I told myself to wait to use the...

A pocket rocket !


I bought this little camera as an investment so I could post pictures of my items on an auction site. I have grown to use it much more than I ever thought I would.

Compact size, lots of programming options

The usual battery thing, plus a little difficult to master all the settings
