Short form review posted for Sony DSC-P8!|
(Friday, May 9, 2003 - 09:56 EDT)
Sony's made something of a specialty of crafting full-featured cameras aimed at the solid "middle ground" of the consumer market.
Scoring high on image quality, ease of use, and features/flexibility, their Cyber-Shot line has something for everyone. Their "Compact P-series" of cameras have done particularly well in the compact-camera segment, offering much the same features as the larger models, packed into a compact body. The Compact P-Series bodies are also a little unique, in that they combine a very thin profile with a slightly elongated shape. The net result is that they fit very easily into even modest-sized pockets, yet provide plenty of space for a firm grip and easy operation of the controls.
The latest model in the Compact P-Series line is the P8, a 3.2 megapixel model with a 3x optical zoom lens and full complement of Sony 2003-model-year features. Very slick, compact, and nice photos to boot. Check it out!
