Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P8

 

That said, let's begin our review of the P8

Very good photo quality ; Small, metal body ; New monitoring, continuous AF modes a nice addition ; First rate movie mode ; AF illuminator ; Robust operation ; Histogram in record and playback modes ; Supports add-on lenses, flash, underwater case

No manual controls ; Redeye a problem ; Too easy to accidentally enter macro mode ; Battery life pales in comparison to DSC-P72

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P8 is a nice point-and-shoot camera, and is worth your consideration. It offers a small, metal body, good photo quality, robust performance, and it's easy to use. The two new autofocus modes are a nice addition, and the movie...
