Sony's 10 megapixel Cyber-shot DSC-N2 reviewed


The folks over at Imaging Resource got their hands on Sony's latest and greatest Cyber-shot, the DSC-N2, and seem to like what they see. The 10 megapixel camera is all about its prominent 3-inch touchscreen, and we suppose it's one of those love it or...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N2 review


Sony seems to love touch screens. First, it put a touch screen on its 8-megapixel Cyber-shot DSC-N1 . Then, it put touch screens on several of its camcorders, including the high-definition Handycam HDR-SR1 and the HDR-UX1 . Then, it put a touch screen...

Speedy shooting in well-lit scenes.

Fuzzy images; shutter lags when shooting in dim light; some users might find the touch screen awkward.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N2 is small and fast, but compression artifacts and an awkward touch screen hinder its use.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N2 Digital Camera - Review


As with the DSC-N1, Sony has taken advantage of the LCD in the Sony N2 to let the camera function as a digital photo "wallet" of sorts. As you capture each image, it is saved twice. One copy is saved at your chosen resolution on the camera's flash...

Responsive with a good shutter lag time, very good shot-to-shot speed, Good overall color accuracy, Very good low-light shooting capabilities, Image noise at ISO 200 and below is pretty good, ISO up to 1,600, touchscreen LCD is efficient and simple to...

Slow continuous shooting speeds, High chromatic aberration lens distortion, noticeable in some images at the edges, Slightly warm skin tones, Auto white balance had a hard time with household incandescent lighting, Contrasty default tone curve, Image...

Also retained in the Sony N2 is a slideshow mode with a range of transitions including pans, zooms, wipes, and fades, all selected automatically by the camera, and accompanied by music stored in the camera. The user can replace the music with their own...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N2


Everything else is unchanged. That means that the N2 has a compact, all-metal body, a 3X optical zoom lens, a huge 3-inch touchscreen LCD, limited manual controls, a built-in photo album, and a VGA movie mode. Heck, you can even "paint" over your images

Very good photo quality (though see issues below) ; Stylish, compact metal body ; Enormous LCD display (though see issues below) ; Low noise through ISO 400 ; Snappy performance in most areas ; Some manual controls ; AF-assist lamp; good low light...

Blurry corners ; Redeye ; Unimpressive burst mode ; Big LCD attracts fingerprints; clunky touch-based menu system ; No optical viewfinder ; Only three aperture choices available at any one time in manual mode ; Needs more manual controls, especially...

All-in-all, the Cyber-shot DSC-N2 is a nice ultra-compact camera, and one that I can recommend to most people. If you take a lot of photos in unusual lighting conditions then I'd skip it, but for everyone else, it's a good choice. One shopping hint for...

Sony Cybershot DSC-N2 Review


The Sony Cybershot DSC-N2 may appeal to some with its large 3" LCD and simple design. It is also capable of producing some nice images outdoors. Like most ultra-compact digital cameras, the optics are far from perfect with noticeable vignetting and...

Low image noise until ISO 200, good at ISO 400 for bright scenes, Good exposure and color accuracy, Excellent focusing speed, Solid metal body, Strong flash

Very poor white-balance under artificial light, not just automatic, High noise above ISO 400, Some vignetting, Corner softness, Redeye problems

Sony Cybershot DSC-N2 Digital Camera Review


This is an autofocus (19.7 inch focus range, and 2.4 inch in macro mode) compact digital camera with slim design and a copper-like metallic color, but, most of all, with a unique touchscreen interface and ultracompact body. But it's more than just an...

Sony Cyber-Shot N2


The Sony Cyber-shot N2 is essentially a 10 megapixel upgrade to last year's N1. It carries over the huge touchscreen, manual controls and everything, plus an improved high sensitivity mode. How fancy an upgrade is the N2? Find out now

3X lens, high resolution in a small body ; Powerful flash ; Above average battery life ; Large touchscreen LCD ; Fairly fast performance ; Manual controls ; Great movie mode ; Well implemented album system ; Fancy playback with the paint feature ; Good...

Clunky touchscreen interface (More menus than usual) ; Limited aperture options; no custom white balance ; Very mediocre (Slow and limited) continuous shooting ; Redeye and some distortion; really noisy at ISO 1600

The Sony Cyber-shot N2 packs 10 megapixels and a huge touchscreen into its small casing. The rather powerful flash, manual controls and great movie mode also add the appeal of the N2 to the crowds. Despite offering more manual controls (over exposure)...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N2


As with many 2006 compacts, the Sony Cyber-shot N2 is basically an enhanced version of its predecessor. Sony's essentially taken the earlier N1, fitted a slightly higher resolution sensor, increased the sensitivity, added support for the optional GPS...

Large 3in screen, Unique touch-sensitive control, Built-in photo album and musical slideshows, Support for optional GPS unit

Screen suffers from fingerprints, Manual, but no A or S priority, No on-screen grid option, Aggressive noise reduction at high ISOs
