Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P200


Mouseover image for back view

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Sony DSC-P200 Cyber-shot has 7.2-megapixel resolution, a Carl Zeiss branded lens at 3x optical zoom, and macro focus at 6 cm (2.4 in.). It has a nice shutter speed range, allowing you to go as long as 30 sec. in Manual mode.

The Sony P200 is basically a P150 with a larger 2 in. LCD monitor (though at the same 134K resolution) and a slightly smaller and lighter body. It is a point-and-shoot digital camera with Programmed Auto mode, some manual control over exposure compensation, aperture and shutter speed, and scene modes to make taking shots in various common situations a snap. An AF Illuminator helps with low-light focusing. Movie size is 640x480 at 30fps using Memory Stick PRO media. You can even display a histogram in both capture and playback modes.

If you are one of those who love to add accessories, you can screw on filters (30mm) using the optional VAD-PHB adaptor. Other optional accessories include wide-angle and telephoto conversion lenses, carrying case, and table top tripod.

The Sony DSC-P200 is PictBridge compatible, allowing you to print directly to a printer without going through a computer.
