Sony's large, heavy 5-megapixel camera takes great-looking photos.

Sony DSC-F707


It's been about a year since Sony last updated their popular F505 series camera. The last upgrade was from a 2.1-megapixel to a 3.3-megapixel CCD imager, but it was somewhat controversial because the F505V only used 2.5-megapixels for the final image. The

The 2 megapixel DSC-F505 was originally revealed back in August 1999, and we were the first site to review it. In April 2000 Sony announced an upgraded camera named the DSC-F505V, it was essentially the same lens and camera engine but with a 3.3...

Class leading resolution (at the consumer level, at time of writing review) ; Good metering (improved thanks to 'Multi-Segment' metering) ; Bright, vivid colour reproduction (though saturation control is sorely missing) ; Low noise (thanks to Clear...

Limited burst ability, very fast but only 3 frames ; Visible sharpening 'white halo' around black lines ; Bad lens distortion with wide angle macros ; Barrel distortion at wide angle ; Over saturated reds could lead to clipping for very bright red...

Sony couldn't have been sure of the success of the F505when they launched it, an unconventional design it wasn't exactly whatpeople were expecting (especially following on from the D700). Sony followedup with the F505V which although essentially an...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F707 Digital Camera Review: Intro and Highlights


Sony Electronics Inc. has long held a dominant position in the digicam marketplace, with a wide range of models enjoying enormous popularity with consumers. Last February (2001), the company announced six new units. Four of these models included...

Because the two cameras' in-camera sharpening is so different, I've shown comparisons with the default sharpening, and then with the images shot with in-camera sharpening off and unsharp masking applied in Photoshop. The results are interesting, to say...

The review has been updated after using the real, shipping DSC-F707. Product photos have been re-shot where needed. All the sample photos are now from the production camera

5 million pixels for under $1000 ; Feature packed ; 5X optical zoom ; Excellent photo quality ; Very good bundle (except for Memory Stick) ; Manual white balance and other manual controls ; Battery lasts a long time

Proprietary Memory Stick, flash support ; A RAW mode would be nice ; No true continuous shooting mode

I think Sony caught many manufacturers by surprise with their announcement of the DSC-F707 -- especially the $999 price point. Olympus, Nikon, and Minolta are all selling 4-5 Megapixel cameras for more than the F707. While I haven't used the Coolpix...

What a gem of a camera! Well over 4000 photos taken and still going strong. Solid construction. Excellent quality lens/zoom which produces fabulous wild life pics. A bit of a learning curb at first but once you familiarize yourself with the features...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F707


Here I am, 2008 and trying to decide on a DSLR after 7 years with my 707. I started looking at other cameras after maybe the third year figuring that advances in technology would make an "upgrade" timely...but really, there really hasn't been a good...
