Review posted for Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P150|

Taken as a package, the Sony DSC-P150 is hard to beat in the subcompact point-and-shoot digicam market.
Housed in a very small package is a 7.2-megapixel CCD, a sharp, high-quality 3x optical zoom lens, nine preset Scene modes and a host of other creative options. Its pictures are colorful and sharp, it has an excellent macro mode, and it truly excels at low light shooting. I was also impressed by how clean its images were, with very little associated tradeoff in subject detail.
Add to this truly excellent battery life and a surprisingly fast shutter response, and you've got a real winner of a compact digicam, one with amazingly few tradeoffs associated with its diminutive body size. If you're looking for a great "take anywhere" camera with exceptional resolution and sharpness, great versatility, and excellent color and tonality, the Sony DSC-P150 should be an easy choice.
An easy "Dave's Pick," this is clearly one of the best subcompact cameras I've seen this year (as of early October, 2004). Check it out!
