ImagingResource have posted a review of the Sony hCyber-shot DSC-M2, a 5.1 megapixel point-and-shoot digital camera with 3x Optical Zoom and 2.5 inch Hybrid LCD screen.
“The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-M2 is about as unique a digital camera as could be imagined. It packs a 3x zoom lens and high-resolution five megapixel sensor into a reasonably compact body, and offers generally good image quality as well as movies that are much better than average…. At the end of the day, while the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-M2 does a lot to emphasise how to integrate (and really take advantage of) video in a still camera, its flaws, particularly in its zoom control and general overcomplexity, make me stop short of strongly recommending it. It shows clear potential, and with further refinement I could see the next generation earning praise, but the concept doesn’t yet live up to its initial promise.”
