Excerpt: The Cybershot S500 is a fairly run-of-the-mill small digital camera , one that is perhaps best avoided. On the upside, it is small and cheap, (about $180ï¿½a good price for a camera its size) with an ample 6 megapixels, but its pictures tend to be dark and blurry, is 3x zoom leaves a bit to be desired, and it has a voracious appetite for batteries. A better camera would use rechargable batteries, or at least run for longer on its AAs.
Excerpt: There was a time that the cameras used primary technique to generate images using photo-sensitive chemicals. The photosensitive surface rolled into a small reel. Therefore number of photos can be taken is very limited. It takes days to develop the picture so we have to wait to see whether the picture is there as we expected.
Excerpt: I recently found the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S500 on clearance for $35. Of coarse I bought it, and it’s a great camera . With 6.o Mega pixels I get a sharp crisp picture. I never realized how bad my last camera pictures was until I compared them, not even close!!! All my friends comment oh how clear my pictures are now, I claim a great photographer. The zoom is x3, more than good enough for my needs. Once uploaded on my computer, i can zoom closer.
A great camera, very easy to use, high quality and cheap!

Summary: Great camera, i bought this camera because five years ago I had a SONY DSC-S40 with 4 Mpix and i loved that camera, the pictures always looked great!. Then I had a Kodak 8 Mpix cheap camera, but quality never compares with Sony CMOS Sensors... based in these two experiences, I decided to buy this 6 Mpix camera and I'm very happy and satisfied. The picture quality is superior than 8 Mpix from Kodak!!!
Excerpt: The thing I love about Sony is that their cameras are quality, they produce beautiful pictures that are both amazing and sharp. Whether you're wanting to just take family vacation photos, or use it in a professional setting, this camera will meet the needs of any beginner that's trying to get away from those throw away Kodak cameras. It's very easy to control, having easy to understand symbols for different settings.
Excerpt: I got this camera after my daughter was born because I wanted something small and easy to use, something that I could carry in the diaper bag and snap a quick picture with. After almost 3 years, it's still going strong! I'm not too tech savvy and I found this camera very easy to use. It is small enough to fit in my jacket pocket and it takes pretty good pictures. The battery life is longer than other cameras that I've had too.
Sony Cybershot is a good little basic digital camera

Excerpt: The Sony Cybershot S500 is a decent little camera. Moderately priced, it has a wide variety of features, a relatively large viewing screen and takes great pictures for its size and price. The entire SONY cybershot family has a reputation for good quality at an affordable price and this camera is entirely in agreement with that reputation. I have taken many pictures that friends have sworn could be Post-Card quality, and this camera has survived a lot of beatings.
Sony CybershotDSC-s500:Great Pictures without trying!
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I bought a SONY CYBERSHOT Digital Camera for my 11 year old Son. My original reason for buying it was I figured he could snap away as many photos as his heart desired without sending me to the poorhouse with film and developing costs. After I saw the first set of photos he took on his class trip to the Zoo, I thought I had a photographic prodigee on my hands.
Excerpt: This was an expensive camera and I expected quality due not only to the price but also the Sony name. However, the camera has been a pain! It has broke twice, with the lenscover not opening or only opening partway. Also the buttons are SMALL, so if you have large fingers, pass on these models. I liked the zoom and the quality was usuallty pretty good, although defintely more blurry photos than my Canon PwerShot.
