Sony Cyber Shot Pro review:

 

Review summary Part of the first generation of 7-megapixel digital cameras, Sony's DSC-V3 boasts a 4X Carl Zeiss zoom lens, a big 2.5-inch LCD, plenty of advanced features, and fairly sprightly performance. Though its image quality isn't absolutely top...

Unusually solid high-ISO performance for a non-dSLR; big 2.5-inch LCD; quick overall performance; relatively light and compact.

Low-ISO photos show some JPEG and edge artifacts; poor raw-format shot-to-shot time; subpar optical viewfinder.

This Sony offers good features and performance in a compact camera for enthusiasts, but its low-ISO image quality doesn't quite match the best in its class.

Sony Cybershot DSC-F828 Digital Camera Camera

 

In a world of boxy digital cameras, Sony's 8-megapixel Cyber-shot DSC-F828 is truly unique. Like its predecessor, the 5-megapixel DSC-F717, this camera has the shape of an L, with a massive lens barrel making up one leg, and the chunky body the shorter...

Advanced photographers may miss a couple of features on the F828. It does not have custom user settings--found in competing cameras from Olympus, Nikon, and Canon--which are useful for quickly setting the camera for different shooting situations. You...

Robust performance ; Useful Night-Framing feature ; Supports external flash ; Fullmanual controls ; Very high resolution ; Well-designed, sturdy body ; VGA, 30-fps movie mode ; Dual memory-card slots ; Fast 7x zoom lens

Software not compatible with OS X ; Too much purple fringing in images ; Not as many manual controls as other cameras in class ; Slow Raw-mode performance ; Competition from D-SLRs

Présenté pour la première fois en Août 2003, le DSC-F828 n'a été commercialisé qu'à la fin de l'année. A ce moment là Sony était le seul à proposer un appareil doté d'un capteur 8 megapixels. Quelques mois plus tard lors de la PMA de Las Vegas,...
