I had the chance to play with a Sony Cybershot DSC-P100 today. It is a 5.1 megapixel camera with a 3x Zeiss lens. The LCD screen on the back is big and bright. The camera is very compact while not being too small to use. It’s bigger than my DSC-U20 but smaller than my Nokia 3650. The picture quality is just drop dead gorgeous. Street price on this bad boy is about $399 right now. It takes Memory Stick Pro.
It’s an impressive little camera with a lot of rez. I think it brings a lot of value to the table for $399.
Talk about timing. CNet has just reported that Sony has announced a sub-$500 7.2 megapixel consumer oriented camera. It sounds like the DSC-P150 will have a similar form factor as the P100.
I thought the megapixel war was over. Aparently not.
