Snap Happy Review with images

AdvantagesVery lightweight with no lack of quality

DisadvantagesComes with very few extras

"...go prepared. I bought the Sony DSC-P31 from a seller on Ebay.co.uk for about £100 and it came with lots of extras including 6 batteries with a charger, carry case and 2 memory sticks! Inside the box The camera is actually smaller than I expected it to be. This is a good thing, it fits well in a pocket and it isn't too heavy. It is a bit light on accessories though as a standard buy, it only comes with an 8Mb storage card which holds ..." Read review

Picture Perfect (well almost!)

Advantagessee op

Disadvantagessee op

"...I won £10,000 worth of Sony equipment (which was chosen for me). I was over the moon at winning so much stuff; I’ve never won so much as a pen before in my whole life so it was a wonderful surprise. Anyway one such item was the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P31 digital camera. Despite the fact that I had just purchased a digital camera I didn’t oppose to receiving another one for free! I should imagine that I will be one of the only people who can actually ..." Read review

Have a Snappy Christmas

AdvantagesLots of features for the money, great pictures and a neat, compact design

DisadvantagesLacks high-end exposure controls and a carrying case

"...a moments notice then this Sony DSC-P31 may be an interesting buy for you. This 2.0 MegaPixel model is compact in the extreme, although thankfully doesn’t compromise its technical specification as a result. Indeed, there are many features here that I found on some more expensive models, although it has to be said that the cheaper price does result in Sony cutting a few corners when it comes to build quality. It was rather unfortunate that I ..." Read review

Fantastic little camera

AdvantagesThe best £200 i spent

DisadvantagesNo optical zoom jobby

"...good camera. People associate sony with expense and being stingy with features. You have to pay a fortune to get what other manufacturers put on as standard on their products. That simply isn't true with this camera. The P31 has loads of features! Its got a 5x digital zoom (i'll come onto the fact there is no optical zoom later), red eye protection, video facility, scenery facility, you can fiddle with the picture size from 640x480 to 1600x1200, theres ..."

Price vs. Optical zoom

AdvantagesPrice, nice features, ease of use

DisadvantagesLack of normal optical zoom, battery life

"...lighting situation) thanks to the Sony technology, has a build-in flash, excellent color reproduction. As it is targeting young/beginner photographers, it help improve the quality of the photos by integrating light-sensitivity settings and white-balance settings. Building along this line, the camera enjoys from the Sony look and design which makes it very user friendly and gives a very enjoyable user experience despite of the fact that it only has ..."
