Perfect for baby/toddler pictures, May 15, 2007 By J&A -
This is our third digital camera since we had a baby, but it is the first one that lets us to take nearly perfect pictures of our son (15 months old). The reason is simple: a very small shutter lag. All digital cameras (except the very expensive SRL ones) have a noticeable shutter lag (the time it takes from pressing the button to actually taking a picture). Our previous Minolta and Pentax were wonderful for still/nature pictures, but their 1+ sec shutter lag made it impossible to take pictures of a moving baby or to capture a nice smile. Now, this Sony has a shutter lag that is almost inexistent (without flash), and we can finally capture nice pictures of our son. We don't care about MP, but the 7.2MP is also a plus. The camera is also very fast to turn on, taking about 1+ sec, a very important feature for capturing those special moments. Overall, an excellent camera for our main purpose: to take family pictures.
Pros: very short shutter lag, fast turn on/off, good picture quality, easy to use intuitive interface, easy to carry, very high resolution, good bang for the bucks.
Cons: uses memory sticks (pricier than SD cards), proprietary (and more expensive to replace) cables, very noisy in very low light conditions.
Bottom line: wonderful for family pictures.
