The Cyber-shot DSC-M1 is a compact 5.1-megapixel digital still camera. First of all, this camera is really stylish and is one of the first hybrid camera. It is able to capture digital still image and high quality video that you can zoom in and out at the same time.
This camera is able to take clear and very good picture in daylight with sufficient lighting but performs poorly at night due to the weak flash light. You will definitely need a tripod to take good night picture especially for far away objects. The swivel feature is a real convenient and you can actually capture pictures on the buttons located on the left panel of the lcd.
It comes with a dock where you can recharge and transfer pictures at the same time using USB connectivity. The battery life is around 1.5 hours for continuous usage but you can save the battery by turning off the lcd screen when you are not using it for a few minutes. It's slightly heavier than the usual cybershots T series and canon SD series. All in all, a powerful camera for pictures and video but performs poorly at night time.
