<b>Spec:</b> Digital camera, 7,200,000 pixels, LCD display - TFT active matrix - 2.5 in - Color, 32 MB - Memory Stick<br> <b>Good:</b> Unusually solid high-ISO performance for a non-dSLR; big 2.5-inch LCD; quick overall performance; relatively light and compact.<br> <b>Bad:</b> Low-ISO photos show some JPEG and edge artifacts; poor raw-format shot-to-shot time; subpar optical viewfinder.<br> <b>Bottomline:</b> This Sony offers good features and performance in a compact camera for enthusiasts, but its low-ISO image quality doesnt quite match the best in its class.<br>
