  • Impressive Little Digital Cameras

    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.
