Good Combo Unit
Strengths: Takes excellent stills, excellent video (for a combo unit), big and bright LCD, small form factor, stylish design
Weakness: Only 3x optical zoom, zooming is slow, steep learning curve, tripod needed to keep from blurring
Before i say anything, keep in mind that i am NOT a professional photographer, and that this review is from the perspective of an average consumer.
I originally looked into this camera after buying over $100 worth of memory sticks for my PSP. I thought, if these things are so expensive, i might as well have something else that uses them. You can remove the memory stick directly from the camera and view the pictures right away on your PSP. I was disappointed to find that the mpeg4 (video) format was not the same mpeg4 format supported by my PSP (although i hear that the soon-to-come version 2.0 firmware supports more formats).
Despite what some people seem to think, the DSC-M1 is very small and easily pocketable- a little smaller than most digital cameras actually. The LCD screen is big and easy to read. The menus are easy to navigate, even if you don't quite understand what all the options mean yet. The focus modes are a bit odd, but just hit the button and let the camera figure out what to do- the results are usually acceptable. The flash seems powerful enough to me. Some people have called it "weak", and i hope they realize that the DSC-M1 has a deafult flash setting of "normal" (you can still increase the power) when it comes out of the box.
Pictures are crisp and correctly colored. I took an amazing close-up shot of my thumb for testing- it looked excellent and suffered from absolutly no blurriness. The video is huge (640x480) and while it doesn't match the quality of a camcorder, i could see someone using this as a worthy substitute for one (in short bursts, a 512MB can only hold about 22 mins). You can also bring down the quality if you need to capture lots of video (a 512MB can hold about 4 hours of low-quality video).
My only problem with this camera is that some shots are hard to steady. It feels kinda stupid to whip out a tripod for this little camera, but you may have to if you want a great shot.
I paid $399 for my DSC-M1 and i am not regreating my purchase. This camera is for people that want loads of features compressed into a small package. If you want a really excellent still camera, or a really excellent camcorder, you won't find either here. But you will find a camera that takes very good pictures and very good video.

I couldn't wait to get this camera...
Strengths: Good video quality, great pictures, excellent viewer/screen.
Weakness: Expensive memory cards, pretty big unit compared to current digital cameras, expensive.
I couldn't wait to get this camera but I was a little disapointed once I received it. First, you can't carry it in your pocket. way too big for that. But, what you give-up with the size, you gain with the functionality. Second, it needs lots of memory for pictures and videos and memory stick duo's are not cheap. Finally, I fumbled with it for a few days before getting used to the form factor. I was about ready to return it until it started growing on me. (I plan on keeping it now!)
I was able to capture a few video clips and then create a DVD with them. Watching the DVD on my TV, the video quality was as good as anything I've captured with my camcorder. I would use this camera for my videos exclusively if only the memory wasn't soo expensive and you need allot of it to get 60 minutes worth of video. It's great for a few quick shots, but otherwise, you still have to carry around that lumpy camcorder.
The pictures are great. Printing these pictures on the Sony DPP-EX50 photo printer generated some great pictures. I would imagine taking the memory stick to a local pharmacy would get you pictures as good/better than 35mm film pics.
Also, the form factor needs getting used to, but once you do, it's great. Allot easier than current cameras once you get the hang of it. The 2 different buttons for pictures and video is great when you want to capture something happening RIGHT-NOW! No need to puts around changing settings from still pics to video. Just press the video button and you're capturing the event before it's over. I love that feature.
In summary, it's a great camera if you don't mind the bulk. Great video but it won't replace you current camcorder (not unless memory stick prices come down drastically!). Form factor needs getting used to. And lastly, if you can afford to part with lots of $$$, it's worth buying.

I love this camera. The innovative...
Strengths: Great all round camera. Shoots excellent high-rez stills, and DVD quality video. Color, clarity and exposure are all excellent without manual intervention. Excellent form factor.
Weakness: MPEG 4 converter software should provide ability to convert to DV codec, not just MPEG 2. Video mode requires decent lighting. Small size makes video shaky at 3X zoom even with image stabilization.
I love this camera. The innovative design, twisting half the body to a 90% angle to shoot stills or video, allows a much larger display and well placed, easily manipulated buttons. I shot pictures with gloves on! If you want DVD quality video and high quality (5M) stills in one package, this is an excellent choice. The only negatives are, I think, unavoidable; the small lens requires decent lighting (not a problem for stills as the flash is quite intense, but a problem for videos in low light), the light weight makes it hard to avoid jitters when at 3X zoom (haven't tried with non-optical), and, well, only 3X optical zoom. But, given it's small size and wieght (and therefore truly outstanding portability), it's a great compromise that allows you to shoot what you want, when you want, while making it easy to keep with you whereever you go.
The included software needs some improvements; in particular, the amazingly good MPEG 4 compression is downgraded significantly when you convert it to MPEG 2, but if you want to use a current authoring package like ULEAD MediaStudio Pro, you don't have a choice. It would be nice if they allowed conversion to other formats.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-M1
Strengths: Large 2.5 inch viewer screen size, 3X zoomable on the fly during video captured with great stereo sound, great still picture.
Weakness: Required moderatly bright light for good video capture.
Its form factor is very stylist about half of the thickness of my old digital camera.
It is a great camcorder for all out door activities thanks to MPEG4 technology, you can get 1hr50min of video recording out of 1GB memory with an excellent resolution of 320x240 at 30 frame per second. The battery wasn't last long, but I bought another higher capacity battery to make the recording last.
Overall, this is the best investment I had made on camera equipments. It replaced both of my old camcorder and old digital camera. I have enjoyed capture every moment of my family activities into video.

Bought this camera to replace my...
Strengths: very stylish, lots of features, great picture and video quality
Weakness: a bit bulky, only comes with 32MB memory, hard to find a case for,
Bought this camera to replace my Sony DSC-T1. I must say, I was quite anxious to get this new camera. The camera seems to be the exact same as the T1, with a few added features. ALl of the menu settings are the same, which I like, since I was already used to them.
My only real complaint is that the camera is a bit bigger than I expected. The pictures make it appear to be about the same size of the T1, which it is not. I am, however, starting to get used to it.
Sony only included a 32MB memory stick with the camera, which is nowhere near enough memory. It only holds about 10 pictures. I reccomend purchasing a 512MB memory stick for the camera, which holds about 200 pictures. The battery life isn't all that great, but is acceptable.
The software is a bit "buggy", but is still usable, and is quite easy to use. I'm sure there will be several upgrades to the software, which should be coming shortly.
Overall, I love this camera! It is one of the best cameras I have had so far. I was quite happy to see that Sony put a Tripod Screw Hole in the camera, which was not present on the T1. Anyone purchasing this camera will enjoy it.

Strengths: Exotic Design for a camera (many mistake it as a camera phone) Best compression for video clips in digital cameras, but definately not enough to completely replace the camcorder.
Weakness: just like any camera that uses the NP-FT1 battery...weak flash, short life
-LCD is darker (sometimes completely black) than the acutual lighting
-mediocre image quality; as compared to the breath-taking and detailed shots of the 7.2 Megapixel P150 (~100 cheaper)
-magnifying glass mode also works on video
-definately not pocketable (comfort wise)
-you can only view images on the horizontal view (normal-looking camera mode)
Overall, its clear I ended up paying for the design then anything else. Sony got me again...

Strengths: -compact size with loads of functionality -great stills -high quality videos -ease of use -great design -cradle for camera
Weakness: -expensive memory card -hard to shoot videos in low light situations -battery life could be better -a bit pricey -lens in way of hands if you're not careful
i'm a busy mother with two young children. i don't have room or enough hands to carry both a digital camera and a camcorder. this camera is PERFECT for someone like me. i always have it in my pocket or in my bag and use it almost daily. I've captured a TON of priceless videos and stills. if you use it the way i do, you will get your money's worth in no time! no other hybrid camera comes close to touching the DSC-M1. the camera also has a lot of advanced features for the more serious photographer. it's worth the money.

I have used many digital cameras...
Strengths: wide screen, particular design, good video quality, convenience of dock station.
Weakness: low f(3.5~4.4), expensive memory stick, location of hook for wrist strap
I have used many digital cameras and this is the best of all. When I received sony dsc-m1, I thought it was little big for carrying around but my pocket's still enough for this camera.
Its unique appearance and rotation-available screen attract people's attention. The included dock station is really convenient. It makes easy to transfer files from the camera to computer.
They offered 32MB dual memory stick but if you intend to take videos a lot, you definitely need an extra memory stick. However, memory stick is extremly expensive comparing to other kinds of storage meidas like SD or compact flash card. I haven't experienced any memory shortage but it must be a big problem if I travel around for several days.
The most disappointment was the wrist strap. Since the hook for strap is located on the top of camera, it often covers up the lens and flash, which is really really annoying. Make sure you grap the strap tightly before you take photos.
It also has a lens with low luminosity. It's not a big deal when you use it outside, but you will have to struggle in low light condition or indoors.
In a word, it is a great portable digital camera,if you are not a photographer or expert. It has various function for both photos and videos and the unprecedented design will make you smile everyday. It would be better if they had cheaper memory stick but Sony Dsc-M1 is still a worthwhile product.

Strengths: really likes a hybrid camera that can take both good stills and videos
Weakness: Only thing missing as with most sony camera's is the low optical resolution
I have the M-1 for 3 days. I have to said it is an excellent DC. The video quility is excellent just like a DV the only problem is right now the largest MS Duo Pro is 512MB, but I think they have a 1G version come out soon. Great camera, but pricy.

Strengths: size, video quality, the fact that there is a tripod attachment that isn't on the t1
Weakness: kind of awkward at first, but easy to use once you get used to the format and layout
great camera. I would recommend this camera to anyone who is not too serious about photography, but wants good pictures. Price is a little high, but quality is great

The DSC-M1 is certainly an...
Strengths: This camera offers the best implementation for both still pictures and video that I have seen. 44 minutes of 640x480 30fps MPEG4 video on one chip. Very compact and portable.
Weakness: Flash is weak but this is common with such small cameras.
The DSC-M1 is certainly an interesting concept, and while it still has some rough edges particularly in terms of ergonomics and design, it also has plenty of positives as well. While it isn't designed to completely replace a camcorder, its relatively compact dimensions and light weight will make it much more likely to accompany you, than would be a separate digital camera and camcorder. This camera is great for the traveler and I'm a big believer in the saying "If you don't have the camera, you don't get the picture". How often have you left your digital camera and/or camcorder at home, and then wished you'd had them when you saw that "once in a blue moon" opportunity? With this camera there should be few times when you can't easily slip this camera in your pocket for that special moment!
The ability to get reasonably good quality photos and video out of one compact device goes some way to solving that problem. That's an area in which the DSC-M1 definitely impresses. The DSC-M1 offers perhaps the best combination of both still and video quality I've yet seen. There's no question that Sony's choice of the MPEG4 codec has helped bring the quality of videos a little closer to that of the still photos, which these days are getting to be rather attractive even in the lower-cost cameras. The lower bitrate of MPEG4 also means that the file size of your videos comes down to the point that you can record 44 minutes of 640x480 30fps MPEG4 video on one 1GB memory chip.
The concept of mixing video with stills is an interesting one, but I must confess that I'm unsure whether this is something users actually want. Sony's Hybrid mode on the M1 is an interesting feature yet I am not sure how often I will use it. The hybrid mode offers one the potential to "package" your photos in a way, wrapping them in a story - rather than letting them stand alone.
Overall, my initial thought is this: the DSC-M1 is a unique and rather interesting camera that offers very good still and video quality, as well as some truly unique features, all packaged in a compact design that allows one to carry this camera just about everywhere. While no camera is perfect, I believe that this Sony combines the best implementation of both still and video capabilities on the market today.

Strengths: Very Nice Camera, Cool Design, Capture high quality video
Weakness: Expensive Momery Card & Size other than that is a perfect camera
The DSC-M1 take beautiful picture and I haven't got a chance to use the video function but I'm sure it will be very nice and also one thing u have to look into is get a extra battery cause that battery doesn't seem least very long other than that I'm very happy with the DSC-M1

While it's an interesting concept,...
Strengths: "Interesting" design, true mpeg4 recording, long movie recording times, zoom during filming, stereo sound, robust performance, large, bright, rotating 2.5" LCD, visible even in outdoor light
Weakness: Expensive, clumsy design, poorly placed controls, buttons are too small, picture quality is disappointing, redeye problem Weak flash
While it's an interesting concept, I don't think the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-M1 is good enough at taking pictures and videos to justify its hefty $600 price tag. For less money you could get a better designed camera that takes better pictures and videos of nearly the same quality.
Let's talk first about the M1's design -- you either love it or hate it. I found it awkward to hold and use, with poorly placed controls and microscopic buttons. The placement of the flash and AF-assist lamp aren't good either, as your fingers can easily block them. The 2.5" LCD display is nice, though, and it's viewable even in bright outdoor light. In low light things can be hard to see, as the screen doesn't "gain up" very much.
The DSC-M1's photo quality didn't impress me very much. While photos are well-exposed with accurate color, they just seemed too soft and fuzzy to me. Redeye was also a problem, and the flash is weak to begin with.
The video features are cool, but the quality doesn't seem any better than other cameras with VGA movie modes, and camcorder manufacturers certainly shouldn't be worried. The nice things about the movie feature on the M1 are that you can take really long movies (thanks to the MPEG4 codec), zoom during filming, and sound is in stereo. The M1 is a point-and-shoot camera, with no manual controls to be found, which is a little disappointing given its price. Beginners will appreciate the numerous scene modes, however. And finally, while it does support USB 2.0, the only way to get to the port (as well as the video out port) is to use the included camera dock.
All-in-all, I can see how gadget lovers would find the DSC-M1 appealing. But for the average person, you could get a nicer camera (in all respects except for total movie recording time) for less money -- so my advice is to pass on the M1.

Strengths: Compact size, Stylish, Superb video quality, Ease of Use, Rotating Swivel for Self-Shots.
Weakness: Lack of sufficient memory stick capacity(36MB?), expensive memory, lack of night-shot vision.
Purchased camera online - very pleased with the product. This has been one of the most innovative and best purchase in electronics I have made during the last 12 months. You will not be disappointed -simply no flaw that is worth mentioning.

Strengths: I love the versatility. Digital stills and video images are incredible. Highly recommended for those requiring one device to take digital stills and videos.
Weakness: I have had several other digital cameras, I was a bit thrown off by the size. It is a little larger than most but after a few uses it isn't that noticeable anymore.
Having owned other Sony digital cameras and camcorders I knew before I purchased this model that I was getting a reliable and feature packed device. This camera does both stills and videos quite well. The new video compression format allows me to store at least 22 minutes of video on one charge and one 512MB memory stick. I would highly recommend this model. It's been a hit at work with all the IT geeks I work with. Enjoy.

Strengths: It has both function of taking still images and video.
Weakness: It doesn't have the smart zoom function.
I like it most cause it is small, more functional and portable. Also it's appearance is so stylish. Basically the only thing i feel that this camera has shortcomings.First, it doesn't have a better resolution than DSC-V3, second, it doesn't have smart zoom function, furthermore. but i like it best is that the vari-angles LCD it has.

Strengths: Sharp pictures, good size lcd screen, very short lag between and during still picture shots.
Weakness: Unexpectedly bulky, poor ergonimics, low capacity memory stick supplied, charging cradle fell short on design/ ease of use.
My super portable pocketsized all-in-one camera was a Fisher FCD-C1 which only had 3.1 mp resolution and a tiny screen. I loved its pistol grip design, but the resolution was just a bit too low to my satisfaction. Sony's DSC-M1 was, I thought, the best candidate with it's 5mp still shots and a larger screen. It solved the short comings of the FCD-C1, but it was way bulky in comparison. The DSC-M1 is pocket-sized if you're wearing cargo pants and I miss the ergonomic design of the FCD-C1.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-M1 is the...
Strengths: It's fast. Movie mode creates impressive MPEG4 video (with crisp audio) at a length limited only by available memory Unique form factor makes complex picture-taking situations easier
Weakness: Bulkier than many compact cameras currently available Memory card slot is exposed, making wet weather a concern Some downloading methods caused the images to lose vibrancy, necessitating simple touch-ups
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-M1 is the ultimate 2-in-1 device. It allows you to record 5 MP-resolution still images with high-quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar optics and to capture TV-quality MPEG4 video using Memory Stick DUO with lengths limited only by the capacity of media. The camera's ultra-slim design makes it easy to carry in a pocket or purse and makes its large 2.5-inch LCD seem even more amazing!

Strengths: portability, light density meter, decent amount of mem at 1gig. mpeg4 conversion simple to mov file.
Weakness: case ?, strap is aweful, no night shot, no direct usb conn to camera.
I bought this camera over year ago in NH ( so i didnt have to pay tax on it ) with a 1 gig psp pro stick.
I have this camera on me all the time. I use it for setting up scenes before I start actually filming. I shoot bands and slap them on the web in 10 min to quicktime / flash conversion. I have reels and reels of pics. Its a great camera if you travel alot and you want video footage.
One thing I use this camera for the most would be to see what my video will look like before I pull out the big guns and pull a crew together. I can go by myself to a location, look at the shots, line them and get an estimated color drop and bingo.. come back and shoot it with real cameras a week later knowing where everything is ;)

Excellent camera!!!!! Mediocre software....
Strengths: Takes excellent pictures, MS/USB compatibility, sturdy design (minus the door covering the charger port), big screen, separate shtter buttons.
Weakness: Viewing video on computer is cumbersome, no USB on the unit itself, only 3X optical zoom, limited range for flash, pricey
Ok, here's the deal. About 4 months ago I purchased my Sony Cybershot DSC-M1 for...are you ready for this? $250! That's right, $250. Would I pay $400-$600 for this camera? Of course I would...not!
I'll start with what I like...first there's the design, which is defintely one of a kind. Rotate the lens up, it comes on. Rotate it down, it goes off. I took quite a few pictures with it...the first picture I took was kinda blurry. I did like one reviewer suggested...I switched it from Auto to Program, and my pictures have been clear and sharp ever since, just like a 5MP should be. Yeah sure, there isn't a USB on the unit itself, but I eventually got one of those 12-in-1 memory card readers, and uploading my pictures has been a breaze. The screen is nice and big, ample for sharing pictures and video with others.
Now what I don't like...
How cool would it be to not only upload video to your camera, but edit it as well? I haven't even figured out the first part yet, and until I do, I'll just have a bunch of video on my memory card, that I can only view on my camera. The software...what's the word...sucks. Yeah, you can view your pictures and everything, but I can do that on Microsoft Image Composer as well. It comes with a 32MB memory stick DUO, which I wouldn't have minded being a bigger capacity, but I guess you have to pay for something...but then again, I'm sure I'd feel differently if I had actually paid $400 or $500. My camera came with EVERYTHING except for the memory stick adaptor, which I can get from any electronic store. Also, don't expect to get good night scenic pictures, like the night sky or a city skyline, because you won't get a good picture. I use mine mainly for up close and portrait photography, as well as daytime scenes. It is a little bulkier than most cameras, but still very portable. The buttons are rather small, but then again that makes it more difficult to accidently hitting the wrong button or something.
Bottom line...Worth every penny of $250. Not $400-$600.
Hope this helps!!!!!

Strengths: Very high cool factor, takes great photos (when they're not blurry), takes very nice video
Weakness: Uses the more expensive Memory Stick Duo media, some blurry photo problems
I've used both the Sony W1 and the P200 (my current camera). I bought the M1 thinking it would be the best of video & still photography, but my P200 is all I need. The M1 suffers from some of the notorious blurry photo problems plaguing other Sony models - most notably the W1. The media for this M1 is expensive too. I've decided to sell the M1 and just stick with the P200.

Strengths: Easy to use, high photos and videos quality. It's small for carry. A unique rotating hybrid LCD monitor.
Weakness: Memory stick duo and accessories are expensive.
The quality is good. Easy to take photos and videos because it has two buttons. One button takes photos, and another one takes videos.
It comes with 2.5" Hybrid LCD monitor and you can rotate the monitor, so you can take your photos by yourself.
3x optical zoom and 2x digital zoom are not much, but not bad.
M1 can capture high resolution photos up to 5.1 megapixel or 640 x 480 Hi8 quality digital video at 30 frames per second with stereo sound, so you can take high quality photos or high quality videos whatever you want.
If you have enough money for buy M1 and accessories, I recommend it. But at the same price, you can buy other models that are better than it.
M1 is a unique digital camera. It looks like a mobile phone, doesn't it?

Strengths: Wide screen with 270 degree rotation, special design, good quality for picture and video. There are several language interface so that it is convenient for my family who does not understand English.
Weakness: Expensive memory card, big size comparing other current digital camera. Only one color option.
This is my second SONY digital camera. Last year I bought the SONY P10 with similar price as this one. I have to say although M1 is not cheap, comparing to P10, this one is more valuable.

While it's an interesting concept, I don't think the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-M1 is good enough at taking pictures and videos to justify its hefty $600 price tag.

We're clearly seeing at least some signs of "convergence" between still and video photography taking place in the digicam market, with the "movie" capabilities of digicams becoming more capable every year. While they appear to be loathe to use the word "convergence" in their own messaging, Sony has clearly been one of the leaders in this trend, with virtually their entire line of digicams...

Shoots smooth video, takes crisp five-megapixel stills, and slips into your front pocket with ease.
Compared to the other tapeless camcorders we tested, the DSC-M1 is a tank-in a good way. The attractive brushed metal exterior is imposing. Swinging open the LCD exposes a generous 2.5-inch screen and Carl Zeiss lens, equipped with a 3X optical zoom. With the LCD in operating position, the unique controls are accessible: dedicated buttons to shoot video or still photos, a zoom control, and menu...
