Sony DSC P73


Sony DSC P73 Review. Thsi si a fairly standard point and shoot digital camera, but I was very impressed with the quality of my test picture. Looking at its low price it offers very good value for money.

Build quality ; Ease of use ; Rechargeable batteries and a charger supplied by Sony

LCD screen is the minimum size - 1.5

"Excellent all round digital camera. One of the few digital cameras I have tested that was able to take good shots indoors as well as out. Good set of features, but still easy to use. Highly recommended."

Sony Cyber Shot DSC-P73


A good, basic snapshot camera with a splash of manual controls.

Affordable ; Easy to use ; Fast continuous shooting for its class ; Minimal shutter lag ; Accepts accessory lenses ; Comes bundled with AA nickel-metal-hydride batteries and charger

Flimsy port cover ; Manual aperture limited to two selections ; Small LCD with tiny icons

Our test photos were generally good but not extraordinary for this camera's class. Although some of our outdoor test shots were on the cool side, as whites were tinged with a slight bluish cast, the camera generally produced accurate and well-saturated...

The 4-megapixel, 3x-zoom DSC-P73 is a fairly impressive upgrade to last year's P72 model, including a higher-resolution CCD, and greatly expanded features, all for a lower introductory price than the P72 carried. The DSC-P73 is thus a strong competitor...

SONY DSC-P73 Silver 4.1MP 1.5", 67K LCD 3X Optical Zoom Digital Camera


Very nice camera, takes very clear pictures. I would recommend purchasing a new memory card, since the stock card is only 16MB ( which only holds about 8, high quality pictures )
