My favorite is still the F717, followed by the V3. Least favorite by far is the T1.:(Why the T1 is still such a hot seller is beyond me.

That would explain you nickname.

I also very much like my F717.

You dont seem to be interested in the 828?

Least favorite by far is the T1. Why the T1 is still such a hot seller is beyond me.
I noted it some time ago, and with different things, "hot sellers" are often far from best products. May be because sale volume is more influenced by marketing than by quality of the product... Or may be people just like compact cameras now?


My favorite is still the F717
F717 is a great thing, but this is not a camera for me, because I need more or less compact camera (I have 35 mm SLR, so I'm sure I need compact camera) with good macro capabilities, and with rotatable display. So, do you ever try F-88? It seems to have the same lens/CCD as T1, and it makes me suspect that it can have the same quality problems as T1.


followed by the V3
Would buy one immediately, if it has rotatable display (I like Laser AF and NightFraming much)... The worst thing out of there is that Canon G4 does not have LaserAF, and both are not that good in macro category, so there is no escape.

So which camera did you use to take the picture?

CyberShotNut Nov 7, 2004 9:45 PM

I haven't really heard much about the DSC-F88. I never had any of the rotating lens Cyber-shots. I'm sure they're great for some people, but it's not the type of camera I really have an interesrt in. About the F828, I think it's a great camera but it's expensive and the purple fringing problem just keeps me from going out and spending almost a thousand dollars on it. I'm really waiting to see what the new model of the F828 will be like whenever that comes out.

P.S. The picture of my cameras was taken with another P92 I have...

Hello CyberShotNut,

Congragulations for the great collection!

One thing i wonder a lot is why you have three P93's. Is there any difference between them? (for example the place the are manufactured or something like that)

CyberShotNut Nov 8, 2004 2:25 PM

No, there is nothing different about the P93s I have. I've just gotten great deals on them and I usually resell them on ebay. For the price of the P93, it's a great camera.
