This Sony DSC-P30 digital camera is one heck of an intermediate-level digital camera. It's been my constant companion for 2 years now, shooing 2600 photos ranging from macro shots half an inch away from a bug to crisp shots of the moon thru my Astroscan using a $55 adaptor from Scopetronix. The colors and exposures are great, and expandability is second to none with memory sticks, TV out, USB all on tap.
I've moved to a more compact unit (hard to imagine!) sort of by accident, I'm an equipment freak. Beware that the newer Sonys on the market now don't have the unique combination of features that makes this camera so useful: 3x zoom, the ability to freeze the focus at a certain distance, macro mode (useful in some astrophotography situations), etc.
I'm INCLUDING a 3-HOUR NiMH charger + 4 AA top-quality Powerex NiMH rechargeables that can be charged over 1000 times without memory problems. Two NiMH batteries will power the camera for at least a full hour of operation.
If you think the price should be lower, any reasonable offer will be considered, but keep in mind that the camera costs about $200 new and the batteries plus charger run about $40. Plus I am throwing in a 32mb Sony Memory Stick, possibly two of these if I find the other one which is lurking around somewhere in the house along with a polarizing filter.
I prefer paypal and checks. Shipping to CONUS only. I reserve the right to prefer buyers that have high feedback ratings and that are geographically close to CA. Thanks for looking!
