Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700 review

 

Given the budget Cyber-shot DSC-S700's position at the rock-bottom of Sony's 2007 camera line, all you should really expect from it is the ability to take usable photos with minimal fuss. And by those standards, it passes muster. Just.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700 has respectable performance for its class.

Unfortunately, it has some issues with photo quality.

Other models do budget better than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700.

Respectable performance for its class

Unfortunately, it has some issues with photo quality

In the highly competitive low-end camera market, it takes a bit more work to stand out from the crowd. Unfortunately, the frill-free Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700 can't quite keep up with better same-priced models like the Canon PowerShot A550 or Sony's...

The S series from Sony is offering compact affordable cameras different from the ultra-compact stylish ones not just because of the design but also because these have less shooting options. The S700 in particular is a 7.2 megapixel camera with 3x...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great Pics - Great Price

 

Have found that 3mp setting gives the greatest bang/pic quality with 1gb pro duo card

Just got back from three week vacation to Scandinavia and Russia - took all outdoor pics on 'Auto' and most indoor pics on 'ISO' - 99% came out great - the other 1% were due to me moving camera too soon - Doh

None I have found - except with lack of viewfinder - outdoor viewing of lcd is very challenging
