Hi,

I read some reviews saying flash on P150 is weak and causes problems under low light.

How serious of an issue is this?
Did Sony bother to look at it in P200?

Any comments from users of P150?
Thanks,
Kaz.

Berridge, from whom I ordered a P200 last week, have just given me the following delivery estimate:

"We suspect that the P200 will be due in March now. Sony havn't confirmed this but they have indicated that it's going to be longer than 3 weeks as we originally thought."

They have also raised the price from £234 when I ordered to £264. They presumably noticed that they were £30-£60 cheaper than anyone else!

Just to clarify, they've raised the current advertised price on their website, they haven't said anything to me about an increase so I assume that they will honour the deal.

They BETTER honor the price you pre-ordered at! They can get their loss from Sony! It's Sony's fault for changing the price!



Hey Kazaan, thanks for the info on the Orlando show. That's cool, I'll keep my ears/eyes open for what Sony may announce.

I saw that!!!.....But strangely it was taken down!! It even showed up on the www.SonyStyle.com website as a pre-order but was taken off!!! Somebody let the cat out of the bag before they should have........

Check this out about the new CMOS sensors Sony will be using instead of the CCD Sensors in all their digital Cameras and Camcorders:

Hi,

Does the movie mode in Sony P150/200 have autofocus feature. That is , after the movie recording begins, will the camera try to autofocus in middle?

I guess there is no zoom feature in movie mode on either of them?

thanks,
kaz

hi,

bhphotovideo.com says p200 has optical zoom viewfinder. Does that mean one can zoom in the viewfinder? and is it really true??

thanks
kaz
