  2. If the camera is anything like their VAIO computers - plenty can go wrong !

    Sony support sucks (assuming you may need it).

    Sony makes great audio equipment, however other product lines leave much to be desired.

    In addition:
    If you post to UseNet with your TRUE, not a munged, email address then you have invited the
    swen Internet worm [aka; W32/Gibe-F] to visit you.

    The Swen is news spelled backwards. The reason it is called this is because the Swen worm
    harvests email addresses from UseNet News Groups. It has an engine that allows it to post
    itself to UseNet News Groups and well as it has its own email engine. From the list of
    email addresses that it has harvested, it will then email itself to those addresses.

    | I was thinking of purchasing the Sony DSC-F717 for $699.00, but I came
    | across this preorder special at Get a LifeStyle:
    | http://www.getalifestyle.org/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=260
    |
    | The DSC-F717 is a great camera, but from what I read about the DSC-F828,
    | with 8.0 MP and microdrive storage and RAW image format, how can you go
    | wrong?

    i suggest you take a look at www.dpreview.com
    look up the reviews for the 717 and 828, look at the images and read the
    sony forum there. the image quality is not what many hoped for.

    Indeed, the 828 looked great from the pre release spec but it seems 8mp
    is asking just a little too much from such a tiny sensor. I'm still
    happy with my 717 :)

  5. I agree. I have the F717 and it rocks out loud. When I get more experience
    under my belt I'll probably go for one of the Canon SLR digitals. They seem
    to have all their features in one bag, and the lens options are quite nice.

    I love my F717, it still shoots far better than I can compose at present,
    however, I'm learning fast and have a nice assortment of lenses and filters
    so I'm sure I'll be busy for a while.
