Product Description

This Sony Cyber-shot digital camera is easy to use and packed with intelligent features. Smart Zoom uses the full 3.2 mega pixel CCD to let you zoom into the specific area of interest by cropping the image size, thus avoiding the image degradation of digital zooms. The camera's innovative multi-point auto focus evaluates 3 separate areas of the frame to focus on the subject rather than the background. Auto focus illuminator briefly illuminates the subject in low light and helps establish a positive focus lock. Multi-pattern measuring meters 49 points of the frame for optimum exposure. For dynamic contrast and detail, its 14-bit digital extended processor captures the range between highlight and shadow with up to 16,384 values. Records in 4 different sizes with selectable Fine or Standard JPEG compression. Memory Stick media offers compact, portable photo storage and versatility with hardware and software applications. Multi-burst mode shoots sixteen 320x240 frames as part of a single image for playback. MPEG movie mode captures 16 frames per second audio/video clips with length limited only by Memory Stick media. Features 3.2X Smart Zoom, 1.6" LCD monitor with 61K pixel and anti-glare coating, optical viewfinder, pre-flash metering, daylight fill flash, scene selection mode, slow shutter noise reduction, auto bright monitoring for framing in low light, playback zoom, trim and resize, clip motion mode for creating animated GIF files, 2-shot burst mode, clear color/clear luminance NR, MPEG1 cue, review and divide, video output, 3:2 aspect ratio mode, in-camera picture effects and 5-step manual preset focus.

The fun, easy-to-use Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P32 digital camera packs in more pixels and more features than its predecessor. With its 3.2-megapixel resolution, the Cyber-shot DSC-P32 produces stunning images in a diverse range of conditions. It's also one of the first Sony cameras to be compatible with Memory Stick Pro.

Step-up Value
Here's a Sony feature that adds value to this digital camera and differentiates it from other models in the Sony lineup.

product image Multi-Point Auto Focus: By evaluating 3 separate focus areas of the frame, Sony's Multi-point AF system can intelligently focus on the subject and avoid mistakenly focusing on the background.

Optics and Resolution
The 3.2-megapixel resolution creates images large enough to print 11-by-17-inch enlargements. The 14-bit DXP system plus Super HAD CCD combine to produce excellent image detail and stunningly smooth contrast and color rendition. The Cyber-shot DSC-P32 offers a 3.2x digital zoom.

Storage and Transfer
Images are stored on Memory Sticks, and a 16 MB Memory Stick is included. The Cyber-shot DSC-P32 is also one of the first Sony cameras to be compatible with optional Memory Stick Pro media, which can extends data capacity up to 1 GB.

Images can be downloaded to either a Mac or PC via USB connectivity, which means it can be connected to any USB-based Windows 98/Me/2000/XP and Mac OS 8.6 or later computer without installing any software.

Movie Mode
You can capture far more than still images with the MPEG Movie VX function. Most digital cameras' movie modes are limited to 30- or 60-second clips, but the Cyber-shot DSC-P32 can keep shooting until you've filled the memory card. When used with Memory Stick Pro media, you can shoot approximately 22 minutes of video.

More Features

  • 1.6-inch LCD monitor and optical viewfinder
  • The three-area multipoint autofocus can intelligently focus on the subject and avoids mistakenly focusing on the background
  • A multi-burst mode captures 16 images (320 x 240) as part of a single 1,280 x 960 image and plays them back sequentially in the camera
  • The Multi-Pattern Measuring feature, independently light-metering 49 points of the frame, establishes a maximum exposure value, even where pronounced highlight and shadow are not centered
  • Five scene modes: twilight, twilight portrait, landscape, snow, and beach
  • Built-in flash with red-eye reduction, auto, forced on, forced off, and slow-syncro modes

I have now taken 9,800 photos with this camera!

DURABILITY: It has been bumped, dropped and exposed to hostile climates for extended periods of times (The camera has spend most of it's life in Arabia with severe temperatures, dust and high humidity.) but no real horror stories like falling down concrete stairs. Still, it works fine.

SOFTWARE: I have totally given up with the bundled software. I tried to use it but it just was a pain. However, both the stills and video are perfectly computable with everything.

FIRMWARE (aka feature): I never ever use the digital zoom feature. There's not point to it, that I can see. It's better just to crop it with your home software.

I really don't use ANY of the firmware features except review and -- rarely -- delete if I am running out of memory.

MPEG MOVIE MODE -- very nice! Of course the picture quality is limited but the sound is terrific, making it a rewarding viewing experience. It is a wonderful tool for putting short clips on the web for the grandparents. With my hosting service (Photobucket), I can just upload the native file.

START UP TIME: This cameras is still faster in the start-up time than some newer cameras (especially when the batteries are fresh.) I love that.


THAT DANG RUBBER FLAP! That little rubber flap still annoys me. IT NEVER STAYS ON! Sometimes I scotch tape it but mostly it just bothers me. I almost never use those connectors and have considered cutting it off and covering it with duct tape -- except that now-and-again I use the AV out.

I really like the flash features -- I use nearly all the modes fairly often -- accept red eye reduction.

I bought this camera about two weeks ago and it's a perfect little camera. The size is just perfect, but, just because it's small does not mean it's a basic camera. This camera falls under point-and-shoot category, but, it also offers you a lot of manual controls such as exposure control, white balance control, focus control, ISO control, etc. It also has preset scene modes such has night, snow, beach, landscape, portrait night, etc. For picture taking, you can have a combination of different megapixel (3.1, 2.8 @ 3:2, 2.0, 1.2, and VGA) and compression (Fine or Standard). Picture quality is AWESOME. Outdoor pictures are just perfect and indoor pictures are between best and good (if there is any such thing). Buttons are very easy to operate. Video mode is another thing to brag about. You can take videos at 640*480 or 160*? resolution. The 160*? is not good at all. But 640*480 is just awesome. Video size is only limited by the amount of memory you have. I can record upto 5 minutes on my 128MB card. The only thing I hate about this camera is the cover that hides the video-out, usb, and dc-in port. Another thing that could would have made this a better camera is the wait between shots when using fill-flash or flash. It takes about 3-4 seconds before the camera can take another shot. However, when taking pictures without flash, it's as fast as any film-cameras.

I am one more happy owner of Sony DSC P32. The camera has been with me for almost a month now and it's been used a lot. Let me update my review. My purpose for this camera is an all-around sort of thing: It must be pocketable so I can carry it to school, to work, to my family's garden, to my friends' outing, to the mall... well, you get the idea.
Henceforth, here are the features I found most useful:
Amazing picture quality, clear and vibrant.
Easy to use and small enough to fit in my pocket.
Real time shutter and aperture info.
Rechargeable AA NiMH batteries.
Finger grip on body front.
Instant detection and download with WinXP.
Separate power ON button. Because it does, the lens cover remains closed when you only want to preview your pictures or change setup settings! Just turn dial to "play" or "setup" position before turning ON the camera.
No optical zoom. The less moving parts, the better.
And last but not least, it's beautiful.

Wish list:
LCD could be made larger.
An ISO 50 would be a nice addition.
More accurate white balance in auto mode.

For me the Sony DSC-P32 is a good-looking, functional design. I have no hesitation recommending this to anyone who wants a highly portable and reliable digital camera that can be carried on your pocket ready to shoot at a moment's notice. I can only smile in reaction to contrary recommendations by professionals. As far as this actual user is concerned, the Sony DSC-P32 is beautiful to look at and a pleasure to use!
Good luck hunting for your own camera!

I've been using this camera for about a month and have to say I am very happy with the picture quality and ease of use. I debated on purchasing the model with the optical zoom, but for my type of camera usage (vacations, pictures of the kids, animals, flowers, etc.) the P32 digital zoom is more than satisfactory.
I also purchased two 128MB Lexar Memory Sticks and the Lexar Memory Stick Reader. I would highly recommend the reader, it will save your camera batteries for taking pictures instead of powering the camera for uploads. The Lexar sticks haven't given me a moment of trouble, either, and are extremely well priced compared to the Sony sticks.
I also purchased some Rayovac NiMH batteries (half the price of Sony's) which charged just fine in the battery charger included with the camera.
If you have ever used one of those "mail the camera" jobs then you're familiar with the wait time while the flash charges. You will have a much shorter wait with this camera, but there is definitely a pause while the flash recharges. I did not notice any wait time while taking pictures without the flash - the save to the memory stick is quick!
The LCD display is very easy to read once you become familiar with all the tiny icons. I did have difficulty seeing the display in bright outdoor light until I discovered the settings to darken/lighten the display:) In the meantime I used the normal "nose to the camera" image viewer.
The camera has an automatic lens cover that closes when the camera is powered off. This might be true of all digicams, I'm just relieved to have one less item to track!
My only complaint is the manual. There isn't any "flow" to it and sections I felt should be grouped together are scattered through the booklet.
