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.
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!!!
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!!!
If you find one of these Sony cameras at a flea market, buy it. Fun fun fun

Summary: The Sony DSC S500 is a great pocket camera. I felt very bad when my lens got jamed. It was my fault. I bought another one for parts and that lens was also jamed. I miss the compact size and the quick picture taking in all kinds of lighting situations.

Summary: The Sony Cybershot is a good family of cameras. This one is a decent entry level camera considering its age. Even though the resolution of cameras has almost doubled in the five years its been out it still preforms well. Short of an image stabilization feature this camera douse what you would expect a consumer level camera to do. It takes crisp photos and stores them fast to memory.
