This is a "preview" of the Sony DSC-P31. The camera described here is a pre-production model, and features and look-and-feel are subject to change. When a production model is available, I will update the review and provide a conclusion

Find out all about the P31 in our special preview! Note that since the cameras are so similar, I've copied some pieces from the P71 review to save time
