It is a small camera with a lot of punch and options. Its small size does not mean compromise. I suggest you buy 128 MB of memory. It is nice to not worry about running out of memory. One full day will drain the battery (as with all digicams). So take along the charger (for the hotel room and recharge when you sleep, although it does not take THAT long to charge it) or buy extra an battery. We take the charger with us on overnights and it works. No need to spend extra $$ on the extra battery. Buy the extra memory instead.
A Plus: The videos I take with this camera (and the extra memory) are great. I did not expect to get such nice videos with a "still" camera.
I am not an expert. I have made mistakes taking a few shots and have been able to correct some of them with the MGI Photo Suite software that comes with the camera. Others, were beyond rescue ;)
The vast majority of the shots come out beautifully.
Bottom line: get a small (palm size) tripod for night shots, get 128MB extra memory and this camera. The tiny size of it all and its power will ensure you take it with you and use it all the time. No need to slug around a whole bag of camera stuff!
The camera comes with software which allows editing of still and mpeg images. The supplied memory stick however, is only 8meg and this is the only criticism I have. I bought a 64 meg which helps more. Will be getting a 128 meg memory stick soon. Noting the size and quality of the pictures this camera is capable of taking - and the photos are brilliant, you need storage space so at least a 64mb stick is required. That is unless you want to concentrate on just taking small volume jpg's suitable for emailing. The camera doesn't come with a cover but this can be purchased separately, or any old camera cover will do. A spare battery would be a bonus. I guess its these add-ons which help Sony to maintain the profits.... Once again, only minor criticisms.
The quality of the P5 is very good and typical of Sony. The camera is very small and able to be carried quite easily in a pocket. Once again, the quality of photos are excellent and with all digital cameras, the savings in the long term must add up through editing the photos you want and simply printing the good ones. Possession of the software program 'Adobe Photoshop Pro' adds another dimension however the supplied program with the camera is good enough for the average user.
What else can I say, other than I highly recommend the P5. My parents have the P3 which has less zoom and a lower pixel capacity for fine photos and it too is great....
