Sony Cyber-shot P10

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P10 was the first digital camera bought purely for taking pictures. Previously, before the boon of digital cameras, a 300 Kilopixels (300 thousand pixels) resolution webcam from Aiptek was used for taking digital pictures for processing on the computer. That proved quite unacceptable, as the quality was quite poor. At the time of purchase (2004), this Cyber-shot was one of the top digital cameras for the consumer. It offers 5.1 Megapixels (5 million pixels) resolution. Although there was a 8 Megapixel version available at the time of its release, that one was mainly targeted toward photography professionals.

Mainly used for taking digital pictures, this digital camera has functioned quite well as an MPEG-1 video recorder. Note that at VGA screen resolution, it only records movies at 640x480 resolution similar to a webcam.

Here are some pointers that may help people who use digital cameras, with some advice specifically targetted towards Sony Cybershot digital cameras:
