“I bought the Sony CyberShot DSC-P71 camera back in...”

Written on: 29/06/2005 by jmnt089 (8 reviews written)

Good Points
Great size.
Very easy to use, a great "beginner" camera.
Easy interface with computer.

Bad Points
Photo quality can be a bit lack'n if you aren't careful.
The flash tends to make the photographs red.
Slow shutter speed.
No sound on the video- but this is an early model, before sound became an option.
Wish it had a better zoom or optional lenses.

General Comments
I bought the Sony CyberShot DSC-P71 camera back in June of 2002. It has been a good camera and has withstood the daily use/abuse well. The only problems I have had with the camera is the lens cover which has broken and had to be removed from the camera, so now I have had to get good at cleaning the lense. I believe this camera is good for a beginner but if you are a professional or someone who is serious about their photographs, I must say to look elsewhere. The camera has a very slow shutter speed so it's not good at taking "action" photographs. Also, my photographs at times come out grainy, (if anyone can advise on how to get around grainy pics, please advise). The size of the camera makes it great to take on vacations. I can stick it in my pockets or backpack and have it out and ready in a minutes notice. Overall, it is simply a "good" camera, not a great one.
