Encased within a slim metal body is Sony's latest pocket digital camera, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P200 (DSCP200). Don't just be dazzled by the stylish exterior&.a powerhouse lies within! Razor sharp resolution and crystal clear images are within your grasp because of the 7.2 effective Megapixel Super HAD CCD and 3X optical zoom lens. Guaranteed for quality and reliability, the Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens extends out from the body of the DSC-P200 when required, keeping the lines elegant and the body slim. The higher resolution means that your images will print larger and will carry finer detail, while the 7.2 effective Megapixel CCD also extends Sony Smart Zoom capability.
Of course that's only half the picture. You can keep shooting as long as you need, because Sony's STAMINA technology means the Cyber-shot DSC-P200 digital camera can shoot up to 370 high quality images on one charge of the InfoLithium battery. Lending a hand is the unique Sony Real Imaging Processor, helping to make the Cyber-shot DSC-P200 digital camera highly energy efficient as well as speeding up the camera operations, you're sure never to miss a shot due to "shutter lag!" As well as boosting the performance of the camera, the Real Imaging Processor works in conjunction with the high resolution Super HAD CCD and Carl Zeiss lens to produce pictures of excellent quality. Rich, vibrant colours, clear images, sharper focus and more accurate exposures are all possible with Sony's Real Imaging Processor providing the heart of the Sony DSC-P200 digital camera.
The back of the Cybershot DSC-P200 presents another surprise. A large 2.0-inch LCD can be used to playback your pictures and adjust the camera settings. Bigger than you would expect for a pocket camera of these dimensions, the LCD is protected from harm and enhanced by a clear polycarbonate panel. As it is, the LCD keeps to the slim lines of the camera by being set flush into the metal body. Animated and enlarged icons make choosing functions simpler and it's easier to read the menu or select from any of the camera's exposure settings and nine Scene Selection modes.
Fully automatic for ease of use or manual exposure for the more advanced approach, these features allow you to be as creative as you want. The scene selection modes ensure that you'll always get an ideal picture in any of nine common situations including fireworks displays, beach activities, fast fun and games in the snow.
There's certainly more to the Sony DSC-P200 than meets the eye. You can use USB 2.0 to connect directly to a PictBridge printer or hook up to a PC and use the bundled software for even more creativity with your pictures. A Sony Memory Stick is provided to store your images - simply remove and slot the Memory Stick into any supported device such as VAIO computers for even more playback options. Not only that, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P200 is also capable of recording full screen high-quality MPEG movies for viewing on a TV.
For even greater extensibility, the Cyber-shot DSC-P200 supports an optional powered cradle, the Cyber-shot station. With this you can connect to a PC, printer or AV device, using a remote control to view your images on TV, while the camera battery charges up in the dock.

The screen is big enough for anyone to review their pictures. The video is good and even the sound is better than i've heard on most cameras. The battery duration is very good (just as well as it doesn't take standard alkaline batteries) and it re-charges pretty fast.
There is one thing that bothers me just a bit. When you switch it on the lens that extends feels a bit flimsy. But that is the only thing I could find wrong with this camera.
I have to say that I am really impessed with this camera. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Amateurs in digital photography like me will find it very easy to use and I believe experienced users will find the picture quality extremely good.
One particular advantage this camera has over just about every other digital camera I've used is the superb low light focussing - it just focuses, every time, spot on. Combine this with a surprisingly powerful flash for it's size and you have the ideal camera for indoor portraits. Exposure is spot on and I haven't felt the need to use any of the manual settings apart from ISO selection.
It's a well built camera although it doesn't feel as 'special' as some other cameras I have used (particularly Canon). Everything works with a well engineered feel - typical Sony really. Nice screen and even the viewfinder is quite usable.
The instruction book is a little bizarre and not that brilliant - everything's written in that 'only just translated' manner which can be a little confusing - at least it's printed though and not on a CD like some manufacturers supply.
The USB lead is integrated with the video lead so you have two jack connectors flopping around whenever you use the USB which I find annoying.
Don't let any of these petty complaints stop you from buying this camera - if you want a top quality, easy to use, compact camera and you take a lot of indoor shots I can't think of a better choice.
Have a look round to find a better camera in this price bracket, and then buy this one.
I have had my camera since last May and have been extremely pleased with the results of both outside and inside shots. I have found personally that as long as you are not taking shots in total darkness the flash is not necessary - I believe I have read this in the accompanying handbook.
I have taken inside shots using natural lighting from the window or normal light bulb lighting using both the automatic setup and also set to manual, altering the white balance e.g. selecting tungsten for light bulbs, flourescent etc.
Not having taking a picture in total darkness, I have just experimented by taking a shot in a darkened room without any form of lighting and turned my camera flash on - the result was very good.
I apologise if I am over simplifying your particular problems but if you havn't already tried the above it might be worth a go.
For those considering this camera, I couldn't be more pleased with it. It's compact and a joy to handle without being too small which sometimes results in camera shake, the quality of picture is excellent and there are enough manual controls to let you take more decisions over the result you want to achieve. An excellent buy for the money.
PS Do get an extra memory stick - 512MB recommended.
fixed by setting the camera to "M" (manual) mode, setting the aperture
to wide open, the shutter speed to 1/60-1/100 second and forcing the
flash to "On". The camera remembers these settings even when turned off
so all you have to do for a flash shot is spin the dial to "M" and fire.
One nice thing about the P200 is the flash syncs to 1/1,000 second.
This will freeze anything within the flash's range of 12'-15'.
