DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY UPDATE: People have been emailing to ask me about blog-journalism tools, and the Sony DSC-P93 that I like (and have used for videos like these) isn’t easily available any more except via the Internet (though it’s fairly cheap now). But DPReview likes its replacement, the 7.2 megapixel Cybershot DSC-P200, which seems to be rather similar and isn’t that much more expensive.
Here’s the link to the review. One thing I really like about my camera is the excellent sound it somehow gets from its matchhead-sized builtin microphone. The review doesn’t mention that — it’s something that’s more important for blog-journalism (and, soon, blogvideo podcasting) than for general use. If anyone has one of these, let me know how it’s working out.
