My dad bought me the camera about 3 weeks ago and I think it's just horrible. It's not light weight the battery dies before I can even take any pictures with it. I think the only good thing about the camera is the resolution night mode isn't so good nor is the flash. Every time I use it or even hold it my wrist starts to hurt and that's not what I want from a camera and it's also to big I can't fit it in my pocket or carry it on my wrist to well. I do not recommend this camera not even to a... (read more)

Whoever wrote he deleted 50 images by accident is an idiot. You have to go thru very specific steps to delete all the images at once.
Having travelled thru Africa, US, Europe in the last 3 years I have taken this little marvel every time and it has not let me down. I hope to use it at least another 3 years. I bought the marine pack and most others accessories for it - it's simply a great camera. (read more)

I bought this camera in June 2001. Up to now I'm mostly happy with this camera. But you normally cannot find a lot of really unacceptable things in the press or in the internet. So I wrote all the bad thinks together. I have made round about 2800 3.3M pictures in the past. At the moment I cannot advise this camera. A mass memory like a harddisk is not available. The memory sticks are 100% more expensive in Switzerland/Germany that all other medias. And if you want to change your camera you... (read more)

The Sony DSC-P1 is a fun digital camera to use, it takes good quality pictures. The 3.3 megapixel size allows for quality printouts up to 8" x 10". You can see some of the results on the following web page: http://home.satx.rr.com/rjbaker/opr0006i.html. This was a page I set up for just my family, but it has some good examples of the pictures this camera can take.
You can see that in some of the photos, the background light overpowers the foreground subject (My brother Rob).
The small... (read more)

This is my first digital camera having stuck to 35mm photography until now. Image quality cannot be faulted so this reservation has proved unfounded but the absolute lack of manual control over the photograph, especially aperture control, is extremely frustrating. In the end, this is a very expensive way to take Instamatic photographs - a criticism not directed solely at the P1 but the whole concept of digital photography as it currently stands. The alternative of buying a high quality... (read more)

while searching for a portrait/landscape switch we managed to inadvertently hit a "feature" that erased all 50 images we had on the memory stick - without even asking for a "are you sure" - any company with that stupid of an interface deserves to go bankrupt. (read more)

I just had to sell my Sony DSC-P1 digital camera at a loss. It just wasn't doing what an expensive camera had to do. So I bought a Nikon 995 and lo behold, I am finally happy. STAY AWAY FROM THE SONY DSC-P1if you are serious about digital photography. (read more)

This little marvel from Sony is a real joy to use and carry around. The DSC-P1 performs well (probably as well as other more expensive digital cameras). Its primary minus point is the high initial outlay in respect of purchasing additional batteries, memory sticks or other equipments such as a case. Highly Recommended, though. (read more)

This camera is great! Small and lightweight but all the quality and performance anyone would want. The LCD display is amazing, albeit slightly smaller than most. 3.3 Megapixels makes for very sharp pictures. All the features are there including up to 6X Zoom. Check my Simon for the best prices!
