Sony DSC-F828 Review

Reading time: 4 - 6 minutes

The Cybershot DSC-F828 was announced on 15th August, this new camera is very obviously a development of the DSC-F717 design. Just under a year since the F717 and Sony's flagship prosumer digital camera has certainly undergone a large number of changes, not least of which is the switch from the electronically zoomed five times lens of the F707/F717 to an all new mechanical zoom seven times lens with Carl Zeiss T* coating and a wide angle 28 mm equiv. capability. Sony has also chosen to go with their latest sensor, the all new eight megapixel four-color (RGBE) 2/3" type (8.8 x 6.6 mm) CCD. Ignoring all other changes this makes a formidable combination, a high quality mechanically linked zoom lens combined with the resolution of an eight megapixel CCD. This camera is arguably the most important prosumer digital camera this year.

Review

Large for its class; no Adobe RGB color-space support; very slow RAW capture; frequent chromatic aberration; no override for automatic power-off; JPEG-only continuous shooting; no custom settings. Despite a few unfortunate flaws, the DSC-F828 has a lot to offer enthusiasts who don't shoot a lot of RAW images.
