    Shouldn't ISO come before the value?

    Wow....

    1.2mp
    2.5 LCD, "Monitor" somemore. I can presume it has two and a half a separate monitors?
    100-1600 ISO
    3 frame/second

    Full of mistakes.

    Whoever is responsible for this ad will be crying in their porridge/corn flakes/nasi lemak this morning! And Mattlock, thanks for the laugh this morning. I never knew you cared so much about batteries and where you put them

    seriouly, sony should have a "Spot the Errors" contest this week.

    I think its a good way to wrap up this whole mess.

    Canon's strengths thru their marketing of the superiority of the DigicII chip.
    Sony's strengths thru their glitzy marketing style.
    Nikon's strengths thru their mass sponsorship of events for promotion of photography.

    C for technology.
    S for marketing.
    N for sponsorship.

    I'm wondering if there's a company that has these 3 strengths all under 1 roof...

    N has strength in technolgy too, its VR technology is very good in comparison to Canon's IS.
    Its marketing ability is also pretty good, just check out some of the US adverts and they whip the pants off the ones ive seen for Canon.

    Canon sponser alot of events too dont they? All three organisations have to be good at all those 3 things in order to be successful (maybe not sponsorship so much)

    ST doesn't change your copy, not at all. You as an advertiser, are responsible for your copy and you merely buy the space from ST. As such you're often required to submit the file in either PDF or high-res JPG(for classifieds).

    sony's web site seem to get the facts correct so its either ST or the Creative agency the y engaged who made the mistakes.
