Sony Cybershot N2

Editor's Review

Sony has updated the DSC-N1, giving the all-new N2 a 10-megapixel sensor on top of the already marvelous touchscreen interface and ultracompact body. The N2 is a really eye-catching camera, and the large, 3.0-inch touchscreen LCD is a real innovation in digital photography. Sony's also imbued the screen with a new ability: free-spot focusing. Simply tap the screen where you want the image to focus, and the camera will oblige. We're sad to see that Sony cut back on the internal memory. The N1 was pushed as a potential portable photo album as well, but the N2's large sensor would have neccesitated more memory and more bulk if they were to go that route. As it is, the N2 is attractive enough.

wish i still had it!!! (David — 12/23/2007)

Great camera and great features, but the touch screen isnt durable. The screen cracked from just being in my pocket. The company said it would be cheaper to just buy a new camera than to repair it. yikes.

Black screen (kb — 12/13/2007)

Lucky the screen went black while it is still under warranty, but under a year makes me a bit nervous about how long it
will last if they do replace it. Great camera up till then.

Pretty good (Bryan Estill — 10/30/2007)

Good camera. very user friendly. fast.

My only complaint is that the picture quality doesn't really "pop". its good but not great. The colors can sometimes be a little washed out. however, its 10.1 megapixels so how bad can it be. It also doesn't have great manual contorls.

Wonderful Pictures (Rick — 02/20/2007)

I've had this camera for a month, had the TC-3 when it came out. I am usually a Nikon fan on SLR'S, but for a compact it does very nice. My only thoughts are the feel of the camera, it does not grip smoothly. Hey that's my only comment. I recommend this over the Canon IX 900, which I borrowed from a friend. And if the Image Stabilization is a problem for some...get a life.
Thank You.

excellent camera (Elizabeth Shima — 02/04/2007)

I always buy Sony products as far as I can imagine. This one really amazed my friends when I show them all the options it can do. I even had an 8x10 pictures just to prove its quality. I will have a slide show in our company using this camera for our training, see what the group of managers will think about it. With 4G chips on it, I feel like I have a movie camera at the same time. I filmed a live show in one of trade shows. It did the job more than I expected. I am really a satisfy costumer of SONY products from 2 TVs, PC, CD players and last but not the least this digital camera which I put in my purse everywhere I go. Thanks, SONY.

Great X-mas gift (even when stolen) (SW — 01/07/2007)

Excellent camera.

Had one for 4 days before it was stolen in Cabos, Mexico. No worries will be covered by the Sony Platinum MC insurance (I hope!).

Great X-mas gift for someone (in Mexico). Where it was not available. (I checked at the local Costco & Camera stores).

Expensive extra battery & Sony Super Steady Shot Image Stabilization (n/a) was not a deterrant!

Lense quality, ease of use and price competitive with other 6-10 MegaPixel cameras. Little slow to take shots in low ISO settings. Can save battery life and improve performance by turning off red-eye reduction.

Will buy another one once my claim is processed.

Damn shame about my lost pictures though. May opt for the Sony GPS unit that is available to map your photos.

DSC-N2 (jim — 12/24/2006)

Great camera in so many respects, however, it is advertised, even on this website as having Sony Super Steady Shot Image Stabilization and it absolutely does not. I would not have purchased this camera if I had not been deceived. Sony literature does not claim to have this feature. Apparently at this expense, you would expect it to have it.

Love my Sony Cybershot N2! (BCR — 12/20/2006)

This is an amazing and versatile camera in a very small package. The 10.1 MP allows crisp, clear, detailed photos in any light and still fits easily in my purse. The touch screen menu is a breeze to navigate and it quickly connects to any TV to share your slide shows. gave me the best price and great customer service.

I think you'd better to have one in order to say something about it - I had one and until now it is still more than excellent comapred to other brands
