    I'm going to buy a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W1 digital camera.
    How much (time) can I record on a 512MB Memory Stick Pro card?

    Can I use the card to store photos or do I need to buy aNother card for
    that?

    Thanks,

    Mike

  2. Yes, you can use the same card to store photos. Using the Fine setting
    (640x480, 30 frames p sec.), you can record about 6 minutes. Using the
    STANDARD setting ( 15 fps) you can record about 22 minutes. This assume an
    empty card.

    The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W1 iis a 5.1 megapixel camera.
    How large an image can I print with good resolution?

  6. A difficult question to answer. Because the sensor is so small, the images
    are quite noisy at ISO 200 or 400. They are better at 100 but not as clean
    as a DSLR or even the Sony 717 which has the same resolution but a larger
    sensor.
    Thus, the larger the print, the more interpolation of noisy pixels. I would
    say that 8 x10 would be around the largest that you should expect to look
    really good. BUT, when think about it, that;s pretty good.

    Do you like it as a P&S camera?
    Which P&S camera would you buy today?
