From the Manufacturer
Sony's 7.2 effective megapixel marvel with Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar zoom lens and 2.0-inch LCD just keeps on shooting, providing the top in quality, simplicity, and value for your money.
The Cyber-shot P200 pocket digital still camera is encased within a slim metal body. Don't just be dazzled by the stylish exterior, however--a powerhouse lies inside. Extremely high-resolution images are within your grasp because of the 7.2 effective megapixel Super HAD CCD and 3x optical zoom lens Guaranteed to provide quality and reliability, the Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens extends out from the body of the camera when required, keeping the lines elegant and the body slim. The higher resolution means that your images will print larger and will carry finer detail, while the 7.2 effective megapixel CCD also extends Sony Smart Zoom capability.
Of course that's only half the picture. You can keep shooting as long as you need, because Sony's Stamina technology means the Cyber-shot DSC-P200 can shoot up to 370 high quality images on one charge of the InfoLithium battery. Lending a hand is the unique Sony Real Imaging Processor, helping to make the Cyber-shot P200 highly energy efficient as well as speeding the camera operation. You're sure never to miss a shot due to shutter lag!
As well as boosting the performance of the camera, the Real Imaging Processor works in conjunction with the high resolution Super HAD CCD and Carl Zeiss lens to produce pictures of excellent quality. Rich colors, clear images, sharper focus, and more accurate exposures are all possible with Sony's Real Imaging Processor providing the heart of the Cyber-shot P200.
The back of the Cyber-shot P200 presents another surprise. A large 2.0-inch LCD can be used to playback your pictures and adjust the camera settings. Bigger than you would expect for a pocket camera of these dimensions, the LCD is protected from harm and enhanced by a clear polycarbonate panel. As it is, the LCD keeps to the slim lines of the camera by being set flush into the metal body. Animated and enlarged icons make choosing functions simpler and it's easier to read the menu or select from any of the camera's exposure settings and nine Scene Selection modes.
Fully automatic for ease of use or manual exposure for the more advanced approach, these features allow you to be as creative as you want. The scene selection modes ensure that you'll always get an ideal picture in any of nine common situations including fireworks displays, beach activities, or fast fun and games in the snow.
Short video clips, ideal for attaching to e-mail, are also possible with the Cyber-shot P200. The high-resolution MPEG Movie VX Fine (480 x 460, 30 frames per second) format is possible when used with optional Memory Stick PRO storage or MPEG Movie VX Standard when the supplied Memory Stick is used.
Extend the Experience
There's certainly more to this camera than meets the eye. You can use USB 2.0 to connect directly to a PictBridge printer or hook up to a PC and use the bundled software for even more creativity with your pictures. A Sony Memory Stick is provided to store your images--simply remove and slot the Memory Stick into any supported device such as VAIO computers for even more playback options. Not only that, but the Cyber-shot P200 is also capable of recording full screen high-quality MPEG movies for viewing on a TV.
For even greater extensibility, the Cyber-shot P200 supports an optional powered cradle, the Cyber-shot station. With this you can connect to a PC, printer or AV device, using a remote control to view your images on TV, while the camera battery charges up in the dock.
About the Real Imaging Processor and Stamina
Two key technologies power the Cyber-shot P200. A staggering 370-shots are capable on one charge of the NP-FR1 InfoLithium battery, thanks to Sonys Stamina power management technology. This is helped in no small part to the energy-saving Real Imaging Processor, designed by Sony to provide the heart for its Cyber-shot range. Among the many improvements offered by this chip are more accurate colour reproduction, a better signal to noise ratio to provide clearer images, improved Autofocus performance, and enhanced auto white balance and auto exposure. You can also shoot faster thanks to the Real Imaging Processor, which has reduced the playback interval and shooting interval and improved the shutter and release time lag.
About the Cyber-shot Station and Accessories
The Cyber-shot station CSS-PHB is an optional docking cradle for the Cyber-shot P200 that makes life simple when you want to connect via USB 2.0 to a printer, PC, or AV device. It also features battery charging facilities, so all you need do is slot in the Cyber-shot P200 while not in use for it to be charged up and ready for action. The angled slot of the Cyber-shot station combined with the camera's large LCD monitor is the ideal slideshow set-up. It comes equipped with a wireless remote so you can easily control a big screen slideshow on TV from the comfort of your sofa.
Supplied accessories include a 32 MB Memory Stick, NP-FR1 InfoLithium battery, an AC Adaptor, wrist strap, CD containing software (including Picture Package, Image Mixer), and USB driver, as well as AV and USB cables. Other optional accessories include several stylish carrying cases as well as a range of wide and telephoto lenses and filters.

(First one was great, but after 4 years, I was
stupid and let water get into it...long story.)
I searched for the same camera and found this one.
Different color, but everything else is the same.
I would buy a third, if ever need be, in the
future. It is easy to use and takes great
photos. I'm sure it is just as good as any
other cybershot on the market now. Carrying
case is good for protection....in case you
accidentally drop it. ; )
This camera was so popular amongst my friends that someone ended up stealing mine. Since I loved it so much I couldn't go without one and ending up buying another in the red. I have had no problems with this camera and absolutely love it. It is also great to set up on a tripod and take family photos. I have had better luck with the zoom and quality of these photos than many of the professional photos I've had taken. I would definitely recommend this camera to anyone.
I'm currently on the market for another one of these. I just decide if I prefer the P150 or P200.
I like The large 2 inch LCD on the P200 also makes it much more user friendly than smaller 1, 1.5 or 1.8 inch displays. The turn on time for this camera is one of the best, probably somewhere around a second between pressing the power button to being able to snap a picture. The higher image resolution allows her to significantly crop her photos and still display excellent final print clarity.I think this is one of the best Sony cameras.
I am very satisfied with all its presentations it's an excellent value and pleasure to use.
