This was my fourth digital camera. It really impressed me at first and I was in love with it from day one. However, since getting my HP, I've noticed that the Sony washes out the colors a little bit and the flash can overtake some of the shots. However, the focusing ability on the Sony was great. It focused great no matter what. I had few blurry shots w/the Sony. The macro mode worked pretty good, too. All in all, it was a really good camera. I have sinced passed it on to my sister, who is loving it.

My first digicam. Small, compact, but low resolution (for now) and not too many manual features.

Create purse sized camera, I take it everywhere, the lens cap doesn't like to stay on the lens when not in use though.

I THINK this is the old Sony digital I had. It was 2mp, but took pretty good pictures. It was a basic point & shoot, and came with Image Pixela imaging software. It was small, lightweight, and silver, with the lens all the way on the right (if you are facing it). I think the max it took was about 1600x1800 photos. I have gotten some awesome shots from it; too bad I won't be able to use them for anything pro since the quality is up to par.

This was the digital camera I bought before I got the DSC-P32. Picture quality is very good and video is great although without sound. Wanna know how tough Sony's are? This camera was submerged in 6 inches of water for 2 weeks. I thought it was ruined so I bought the other camera. A few months later just messing around I put batteries in it and amazingly enough, it worked!

A very versatile camera for its size and pixel dimensions. A good lens, but basically a point and shoot set-up. Nevertheless, takes excellent pictures, and is very handy to carry around as a back-up camera.

It has all the basic functions that I need for a standard camera and it does a fairly good job at taking pictures. It would be better if the megapixels were higher (this one is only 2.1) because quality in a photo is extremely important.

I like the Digital Camera Concept but when I bought my camera all the extras cost to much for me to get after putting out almost 400.00 for the camera. The zoom is not that great only 6x with only 2.1 mega pixels. It was the latest camera from Sony at the time that was not a professional camera.

This camera was one of the better ones when I bought it, I now wish I had a camera with more megapixels. However I prefer the Sony cameras to most other digital cameras in its class; of course more expensive professional digital cameras are different. Several people have taken my word on the Sony Cybershot and bought their own.

i love this camera, it takes excellent pictures to be a 2.1 megapixel. i like the fact it will take different modes of pics such as sepia toned or black and white.. only thing i dont like about this camera is that it doesnt have sound with the mpeg movie feature. that aside it has done excellent picture taking.

Resolution is good enough for average users. However, user doesn't have much control over the camera settings. An option of manual settings would be better.
