This camera is very attractive looking and sleek and convenient to carry around with you. It's a very user friendly camera too, the menus are a breeze to get around. The most important functions are the easiest to get to. In the right setting, light wise, this picture takes very clear beautiful pictures. The screen is also a good size...another plus is with most Sony cameras there is a chargeable battery which means you won't be spending a small fortune on AA Batteries. The downsides...well there are a few. Sometimes the camera doesn't seem to focus right when you turn it on (usually shutting it off and turning it back on fixes this problem. Any kind of weird lighting conditions like fluorescent lighting or if it's pretty dark the focus just looks horrible with automatic focusing. I guess I can recommend this camera if your looking for something cheap it's pretty good for the price but if you can afford a little more I'd probably steer clear of this one and get something a little higher on the scale.
I used to have this camera; it takes 4.1 megapixel photographs which is adequate however in todays market 12 megapixels are easily obtainable for around 150 pounds. The photographs taken were clear yet I took photographs with my phone (Blackberry 9700) that came out clearer and more detailed. It left me very underwhelmed, this is due to having to return to what I once thought was a brilliant camera after my current camera decided to pack itself in. The camera is definitely now a budget camera with a sleek design that seems as though its highly sleek silver coloured finish is encasing great quality. However, what I now get is mediocrity in the form of sub par photographs when compared to cameras today. For a photograph enthusiast, avoid this camera like the plague as other cameras for not much more cash do a job triple what this cyber shot camera does. However, for any old run of the mill camera user who just wants to capture those kodak moments without using their phones, such as on holiday, this camera would satisfy your needs. The camera however is reliable, has good battery life and definitely lives up to its Sony branding with quality that was great at the time I bought it.
I have had this camera from some time now. When I used this I expected a bit more from something made a company like Sony. But it kind of didn't live up to my expectations, because when I take pictures they don't come out very clear, but when my brother takes pictures with his Yashica 3 megapixel camera it comes out clearer than this Sony 4 megapixel camera. Furthermore, on some occasions when I upload the pictures onto my laptop the photographs come out as a bit fuzzy. But this does not happen every time it only happens sometimes.
The good points about this camera is that its stylish, will last a long time with you, its quite small making it quite portable. It also has an excellent battery life and for those people who are really fussy about the colours of this camera, you might find that it is available in four different colours.
Many years I've had this. And many years, I've been content with it. It's dazzling us with is unique design, the bar-shaped briliant white finish, makes you wonder if its much more than a camera. Everyone was impressed when I first got it, which was costly back then. However, it is very outdated now, with only 4.1MP as its maximum resolution. It has to be said, that it does not fail in its field. The image quality is no worse than other cybershot T-series cameras, and it is compact and pretty. The screen on the back is tiny, which is a hugh con, for our current camera-market. The videos produced are great also, 600x800 high quality mpg files, and it can save many happy memories. Most noticeable with the piano white finish, (which is the one I had), it impresses more with its looks than its product. It isn't so pricy now, so I don't think there's much disappoints with this little baby!
Measuring 3 3/4" x 1 3/4" x 1 Cyber-shot DSC-L1 camera is powered by Sony's Real Imaging Processor circuitry, delivering outstanding shot-to-shot speed, stamina and quick start-up time for catching the action as soon as it happens.
For the first time in the ultra-compact class of digital cameras, the Cyber-shot L1 model delivers a 1.5-inch transflective LCD, making it easier to see what's on the LCD even in bright sunlight.
It also has a new Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 3X optical zoom lens, setting the stage for picture quality typically delivered by larger, more expensive digital cameras.
Like all Cyber-shot cameras, the DSC-L1 model has speedy auto-focus and auto-exposure options to snap the best picture the first time. You can quickly select the best setting based on the shooting conditions by choosing from one of seven preset modes, including twilight, snow, beach and fireworks.
Four newly developed technologies - including a linear focus drive and a compact high-resolution optical system - combine to produce the ultra-small lens. This lets you zoom in for crisp images of a flower or zoom out for a far-away shot of the game-winning goal, all the while staying in sharp focus.
When used with Memory Stick PRO Duo media, the L1 camera's high-quality MPEG Movie VX Fine mode captures and plays back high-resolution moving images with 640x480 pixel resolution at 30 frames per second, up to the capacity of the memory media card.
The L1 camera provides approximately 240 shots per charge of the InfoLithium battery, with a to-the-minute, on-screen display of remaining battery life.
