Sony DSC-P73 Cyber-shot


Sony DSC-P73 Cyber-shot

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Sony DSC-P73 Cyber-shot features 4.1 megapixels resolution, a 3x optical zoom, macro as close as 10 cm (3.9 in.), and easy-to-use scene modes. It has the characteristic sleek look popularized by Sony.

The P73 basically has the same features as the P93, but on a smaller image sensor. It has AF Illuminator to help focusing in low-light situations, burst mode allows 4 shots to be taken one after the other, and a manual mode allows the use of a long 30 sec.for night photography. It even has a live histogram which can be displayed in both capture and playback. The P73 features PictBridge™ compatibility, so you can print directly from the camera without going through a computer.

The Sony DSC-P73 Cyber-shot is an entry-level digital camera that should appeal to point-and-shoot photographers looking for a sleek, compact and affordable digital camera.
