I tend to shy away from the mini-cams as I they usually lack some features, but that one looks pretty good. :)
 
Looks good, I have an old Canon Powershit A30 with 1.2MegaPixels and I'm happy with the quality. I would get some more memory, I hav 128mb and at 1024px it's enough for me.
 
Wow very nice. Congratulations.
My friend bought one of these at Xmas and they are nice :lol:
He said its a really good camera and so has had no probs with it.
Well its a Sony, so you cant really go wrong. :thumbsup:
 
yea, Sony has always been the best, and other big companies seem to buy their technology and just follow them ...

Can't wait to get my hands on it (bought it through a netshop...much much cheaper) and take my first pics :) I'll be sure to post 'em here, so yall can mock me :lol:

Dude, I have an A10, so... :p

(Okay, so I usually steal my dad's A40, but still.)

Uh... not when it comes to cameras. Canon is the best IMO, especially due to their superior lenses.

oh, sorry. You're right. I was thinking Sony more in general, such as radio, tv, stereos etc... They are, (the brand Sony) in my mind, a quality "stamp", and I tend to let that dominate in a situation where I have a choice ...

I know this cam has been sold in thousands in Oslo only ... so I'm pritty certain I'll be happy with it.

Btw, do anyone here buy expensive stuff, such as technology from the webshops?? They're so much cheaper than regualr stores, here at least ... (due to that they don't need a "middle"stop, such as stocks ..)

btw, I just found this great site for all cams out there, it seems ...

http://www.dpreview.com/

click "reviews" for reviews(!) of your cam ...

haz
 
Yeah, stuff is usually cheaper online.
 
Yup, I buy my stuff online usually. Much cheaper and the price comparison etc. is so easy... Last bought my laptop and Camera (Cheap, small Sony cybershot).
 
Not too bad, that's a nice little cam for the family and taking pics at christmas...

can't expect too much from in though as I'm pretty sure you can't add lenses or even filters on it and does it have a manual mode?

I was looking at the P32 when I bought my camera, and as always the Canon optics proved to be superior, and I prefered the ergonomics too..

but well, for the price it doesn't seem too bad.

My favorite review site is http://www.imaging-resource.com look at their "ComparoMeter"
 
Hmm, can't be that bad... Unless you wanna go ambitious...

I got a P72, so I kind of like Sonys...

I don't have any ambitions, for now at least ... you never know!

How do you like the P72??

I really like it... Picture quality is not that important to me...
I mostly do party pics with it, never more than 2 Mpix... I can do well over 300 shots all with flash and rechecking them on the screen. I just don't need more right now 8)

Still, I would love to have a P150... The objective is really shooting out of it... Hella fast cam...
