I've had this camera for 3 years now and it's pretty good. I'm very happy with the colors. Although it's a little slow to process the images, but it's good.

Its a great camera for capturing memories. But its not the greatest for trying to take good shots. you really have to be patient and take a lot of shots to make sure you get what you want.

The dimensions of the P72 are 4.75 x 2.38 x 1.31 inches (W x H x D), and it weighs just 259 grams with batteries and Memory Stick installed. The DSC-P72 has an F2.8, 3X optical zoom lens, with a focal range of 6 - 18 mm. That's equivalent to 39 - 117 mm. The 1.5" LCD is average-sized for a smaller camera. It's of very good quality for a lower-cost camera, with good brightness and resolution. One annoyance though is the fact that the image on the LCD becomes choppy at lower light levels.

Its a great camera for amateur photographers although the optical zoom function is not as good as it could be ... in that it is not very large. Other than that, it has lots of great features and takes great pictures.

I've used 35mm manual and automatic Pentax's for about 20yrs and find that getting a nice picture can be had using this inexpensive digital unit. Even with it's limited settings, you can almost expect what you're trying to achieve in your shots. Above all and not to steal a phrase, but it takes a licking and keeps on clicking.

Well, it's an OK camera. It's automatic, so good for snapshots, and it does take good pictures, but you can't make adjustments to aperture and shutterspeed and so on.

The best about this Camera is it's long life time battery. I don't have to charge the batteries that regular. The worst doesn't have manual shutter speed adjustement, and I prefere more wide range adjustement of white balance.

The film is cheap. Shutter Delay Time is close to a second while using flash recharge and light calibration. This camera is not necessarily for action shooting. But then again, twenty minutes of programming a microscopic display screen can often loose the perfectly adjusted shot as well, a typical problem with digital cameras.

I purchased this camera a few months ago, but had not started using it until now. I think I can say I'm satisfied with my purchase and although the User's Manual is not as helpful for a newcomer to the Digital World such as me, the results are immediate and you can always delete the shots you don't like and try again. I've always enjoyed the beauty of flowers, so I have been taking flower photos mostly and I am pleased with them. It's a matter of getting familiar with the camera, trying, experimenting and figuring out how things work, actually. The manual has sometimes not been as helpful as I thought it would be. The DSCP72 Cybershot Digital Camera is (except for the price), a very good choice when buying your first digital camera. It's only too bad new models appeared a few weeks after I had bought mine. I wish I could've waited a little.

This was a gift to me at Christmas time. A whole new world of learning for me to operate. After six months and 6,000 shots later, I find this a wonderful camera. Capturing shots is quick, simple and so easy. I venture into all the settings available, making use of the featues. I am not perfect by any means, but you have to get used to be conversant with all the features to take exceptional shots. Sony Cyber Shots 3.2 suits my needs at this present time...I would like to think I could venture to a larger mega pixel camera with better macro facility one day.

I like all the different options such as black and white, sepia etc. I do not like that the subjects must be completely still for a period of time in order for the picture to not turn out blurry.

This is a great point and shoot camera. I wish I had known that i would want to change the shutter speed and ISO. If you want a family camara that anyone can take a photo with this is great. If you are a student then i'd recommend one with more options.

For the beginner such as myself, I believe this camera has all that I need without making the learning process too difficult. The optical zoom is a great feature. Being able to record mpeg movies, depending on your memory stick size, is another great feature. You can also view your photos as a slideshow right on your camera. It is a great camera for the beginner who takes the time to learn more about it, and have fun taking photos!

It's a beginner camera for me, but I'm pleased with the majority of the results. The flash is a little irritating to me.

I am very new to digital camera's, this is my first. I love my camera, it does more than I know about. It is very easy to learn, and I am learning more and more everyday. This camera was given to me as a gift.

I purchased my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P72 in April 2003 and have been very pleased with its performance thus far. It is very easy to use and possesses great portability. The digital photos which it produces are very sharp and have beautiful, clear color. Being able to edit and send photos on my computer is a new experience which I am enjoying very much. My only complaint about the Sony DSC-P72 is its very limited optical zoom lens(3X).

Very good point and shoot camera. Few minor weaknesses: the batteries cannot be completely discharged, and this affects their lifetime. The amount of features is not so rich, but the camera does them pretty well. Anyhow, in the night portrait mode, the white ballance set by the user is not taken into account by the camera - which uses always the auto setting. Also, the display should be immediately wiped with a soft cloth if drops of rain touched it. Otherwise permanent spots will appear. Customer service was excellent.
