1. Review by James
From Leeds, West
Yorks, England on
7th Apr 2003
Since purchasing this camera I
have no problems with it at all, in
fact I take it just about every
place I go due to its fantastic
size. The quality of the prints it
produces are spot on, and with a
second memory card you can have
around twenty minutes camcorder
footage with good sound & picture (
great fun ).There are also many
functions on the camera to mess
about with if you want.
I have been very impressed by this
camera and would highly recomend it,
or the DSC-P9 which unfotunatelly
had'nt been released when I
purchased the DSC-P5.

The camera is
incredibly easy to use! I have only
needed to refer to the owners manual
once. This is a good thing since the
manual is very thin and lacks
detailed information. Adding to the
ease of use is the DSC-P5's
diminutive size. This makes it very
convenient to take the camera almost
everywhere. I went snow skiing this
Spring and the DSC-P5 slipped into
my sleeve pocket designed for
sunglasses with no problem. Plus,
the auto retracting lens meant no
fighting with a lens cap with gloved
hands. I also dropped the camera in
the snow twice (I know, stupid) and
the wet camera kept working without
a single problem. Picture quality is
pretty good for the price point. I
have compared the picture quality to
my brother's Canon S30. The Canon's
pictures are a bit sharper with a
bit more color accuracy. I noticed
some blurring around the edges of
pictures taken a the widest angle
but the Canon did this too. Plus,
the Canon's bigger battery had
almost double the power life. But
the S30 is bigger and significantly
heavier than the DSC-P5. Sony's
proprietary memory stick is small
but no other camera company uses it.
Canon, Nikon and other companies use
Compact Flash memory. A common
interchangeable medium. Not a
problem for most that have only one
camera. Overall, I am very happy
with the Sony DSC-P5 do to it's size
and good picture quality. I would
put it above a similar Nikon but
below a similar Canon.
