The fun, easy-to-use--yet powerful--Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P92 digital camera packs in more pixels and more features than its predecessor. With its 5-megapixel resolution, the Cyber-shot DSC-P92 produces stunning images in a diverse range of conditions. The Cyber-shot DSC-P92 features a 3x optical zoom and is one of the first Sony cameras to be compatible with Memory Stick PRO.

Optics and Resolution
The 5-megapixel resolution creates 2,592 x 1,944-pixel images large enough to print 20-by-30-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-P92 offers a 3x optical zoom and 4x digital zoom for a 12x total.

Storage and Transfer
Images are stored on Memory Sticks, and a 16 MB Memory Stick is included. The Cyber-shot DSC-P92 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 the camera 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-P92 can keep shooting until you've filled the memory card. The Cyber-shot DSC-P92 shoots video at up to VGA size (640 by 480 pixels) at 16 frames per second.

More Features

  • 1.5-inch LCD monitor and true-zoom optical viewfinder for more accurate framing at eye level.
  • The three-area multipoint autofocus can intelligently focus on the subject and avoid mistakenly focusing on the background.
  • Multiburst 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-meters 49 points of the frame, establishing 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.

Power, Size, and Contents
The camera is powered by the NH-AA-DA rechargeable NiMH battery (included). It measures 4.7 by 2.3 by 1.3 inches and weighs 7.9 ounces. This package includes the Cyber-shot DSC-P92 digital camera, 16 MB Memory Stick, battery and battery charger, USB and AV cables, wrist strap, and CD-ROM with imaging software and USB drivers for Windows and Mac.

Customer Reviews

The quality of the pictures is great, even better than two newer cameras that I have.
Food Fan
We have had the camera for several month now and it is probably one of the best products I've ever owned.
WFG
The problem was not covered by either the store's extended service plan or the Sony warranty.

This camera is fantastic. I got it about 2 months ago and it has been invaluable. I will never take a picture with film again! The quality of the pictures is absolutely amazing!! '[m not an photography expert, so I wanted something that was easy to use but did not want to sacrifice quality and this is it! The batteries last much longer then other digital cameras I have used. Of course the memory stick is very small, but that it typical for all digital cameras. You will need an extra one, and b/c this is 5 megapixels the memory stick will hold less pictures that images taken at 4 megapixels or less. And the great thing about this is if you need extra batteries you can buy any rechargable batteries and use that! No expensive extra ... batteries here! The size is nice and small so it fits in my tiny purse. I've tried other cameras that were so small they looked so fragile. Not this! I have no complaints at all about this camera!! To download the pictures you just plug the USB into your computer and you can pull them off without even downloading software to your computer.

I got this camera less than a week ago and I have nothing but good things to say about it. The photos that it takes are amazing. It is wonderful to get the 5MP quality at such a price and with such features. Also, its acceptance of the Memory Stick Pros just makes me giddy. 1GB o' photos at 5MP? Yes please. It is so light and compact. I can carry it easily in my pocket (which already has my cell phone in it). Being able to choose the quality of the movies that one makes is truly a bonus as well, as one does not need to waste quality on MPGs that are simply going to be e-mailed. Very well thought out design. I'd expect nothing less from Sony.
(Still, it does not begin to compare to my Nikon SLR, but at a tiny fraction of the cost of the body and lenses, it seems like quite a nice trade-off. Plus, I don't have to fumble with lenses, filters, and the like in order to catch a shot. This will be a great hanging-out-with-the-friends camera for sure!)

I bought this camera recently at 360 bucks. It¡¯s a bang for the bucks, with 5 megapixels. Batteries are good. The Nimh batteries the camera came with have shooting life up to 50 pictures, to fill up a 128-MB memory stick. Since it¡¯s AA, you can get cheap batteries anywhere in stores.
The body is plastic, but thick and firm, though not as delicate as I thought it to be. Noise of zoom lens is a little annoying. Low-light focusing is always a trouble.
Pictures shot in daylight outdoor are superb. When I printed one on Canon photo paper pro on 4x6 size, you cannot tell the difference from pictures shot with films.

I've only had my Cybershot for a week, but so far, I've been very impressed with the quality of the camera, the clarity of the pictures, and the ease of use of the camera. I was able to use this camera for Thanksgiving, just a day after receiving it, and was still able to get some great pictures, so the learning curve is very small. I have settled on 3:2 mode, which is about 4.5 megapixels, versus the full 5 megapixel mode. The main reason for this is my desire to produce accurate 4x6 prints, which the 3:2 mode does to a "T". This camera takes breathtaking outdoor shots, and very good indoor shots. I've taken most of my shots in the point n shoot mode, with everything set to auto, and the pictures have all, for the most part, been great. I like the fact that I do have some degree of manual control over exposure, metering, focus, etc., because I do intend to explore all the different ways to take a picture with this camera, but for now, I'm very happy just shooting everything in auto mode. The movie mode is cool, if not a little on the jerky side (due to only 16fps), but I do like having the capability to record small movies, if the need arises. For now though, I just use the camera for taking pictures. The batteries and charger that come with the camera are top notch. It took me days to run them down. I did buy an extra set online for 9 dollars, so I should have no problems with battery life. I recommend buying a memory stick, as 16MB is a joke. I bought a 256MB (128MB x 2) memory stick online for about 80. I'd stay away from the memory stick pro. The magic gate stuff takes up way too much of the memory sticks memory. I highly recommend this camera to anyone.

I'm rating the camera, or else the package would have got 4 stars since a 16MB stick is totally inadequate. Aside from that, the camera is absolutely great. 5MP gives you obvious great quality. A feature that I didn't think I would use much is really becoming more of a handy feature, the A/V MPEG mode. It will not replace a video camera, but being able to snap 50 pictures at 5MP and take about 7 minutes of footage has been really nice. (I have a 256MB Stick) Overall, I'm very happy with the camera. Like the Sony name, and it feels nice and durable in your hands. I certainly can recommend this camera, but honestly, buy a memory stick, and I would not recommend anything below 128MB. 256MB is nice as you get about 100-120 5MP pictures.

Looks great, feels great, and takes great pictures.
5MP truly gives you a great quality, and surprisingly (to me) I'm using the Audio/Video MPEG mode more often then I thought. The quality of the movies won't replace your video camera, but quite handy for clips that you want to capture. Packed with features and a very easy to use menu system. Overall I really love the camera.
Cons: With the camera, none. With the package, the memory. 16MB is absolutely terrible. 5MP you'll get about 6 pictures. Wait for deals, here on Amazon as well, and you can find 256MB sticks for [some money]. So DO consider this in your pricing (with other cameras as well), but if you pick up a 128 or 256 stick, you have a great system that you will be happy with.
