It comes as a very attractive package - a high performance 5.1 megapixel
camera with a Carl Zeiss 3x zoom lens, complete with two pairs of
rechargeable NiMH AA batteries, a compact battery charger and a smart
genuine leather belt pouch, all for a very reasonable £199. The camera
itself is also attractively designed, with a square boxy shape and an
almost retro-looking matt black and silver finish.
It isn't a
particularly small camera, but it does feel comfortably solid and, like
all of Sony's recent models, exceptionally well made. The case is cast
aluminium with steel fittings, so although it's no lightweight it isn't
excessively heavy, despite using those two AA batteries for power.
