A worn-out product best offered as a parts only item.

rocde, Ebay
28 July 2011
  • Summary: A product on its last legs. Unable to evaluate it. Doesn't work. Should have been offered as a for parts only item. The zoom lens locks up while being focused. Seems that this camera was once a top quality camera but it shows extensive signs of wear not immediately apparent from its picture on ebay.

One star is generous....awful!

Lala Belle, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera was purchased for my mother for Christmas last year, it's been about 10 months and we've had nothing but trouble from the start. Most pictures come out blurry no matter how still the photographer was! After a couple of days or so we started having trouble with uploading the pictures and then deleting them off the camera. Then we started recieving a 'file error' message and pictures started disappearing when they hadn't been deleted.

Very disappointing camera.

Fernando J. Sulsona, Amazon
13 February 2007
  • Summary: I bought this camera thinking it would exceed the performance of my sony DSC-P10. The only one taht can do this is the DSC-V3. All pictures taken with the DSC-S500 are blurry/low quality even at 6MP. The DSC-P10 is a much better camera even though it is much older than the S500 and even though they both have a Sony lens, not a Carl Zeiss. Don't buy the S series.

Poor quality and even worse support

T. Boehrer, Amazon
2 February 2007
  • Summary: Skip this camera and focus on a different manufacturer. We bought this camera as a Christmas present, and less than 4 weeks after it was opened, the camera was broken (the lense was stuck). We were informed by Sony that since they didn't have any parts for the camera, we had to either take a refund, or a refurbished model. Even though we bought a new camera, we now have to accept a refurb since you can't even buy this camera for the same price anymore.

BLURRY PICTURES

Rochelle Rae Mcdermott "R. McDermott", Amazon
2 January 2007
  • Summary: I am very unhappy with my purchase of this camera. 40% of my pictures turn out blurry. I am not a professional photographer, but take lots of pictures and have never had a problem with previous Sony camaras. Do not buy this model.

все отзывы -правдивы!!!!

  • Excerpt: по мне так у дворового алкаша с трясущимися руками,который будет фоткать на обычную мыльницу-и то фотки получаться четче!!! прикол в том что фоткая на этот [ой]аппарат и видя на экране изображение-кажется что фотография получилась,а выводишь на компьютер-видишь не четкую,испорченную фотографию. нечеткость заключается в расплывчивости контуров. из десяти фоток,одна две будут более менее нормальные...не хорошие-а более или менее нормальные!!!!!..

ну хуже вряд ли придумаешь.

  • Excerpt: Появилось у нас это чудо техники уже очень давно. так случилось, что украли предыдущий под Новый год, поэтому в экстренном порядке пришлось покупать новый фотоаппарат. Ну вот зарекалась я сто раз покупать другую фототехнику, кроме Кэнон, но поддались на уговоры консультанта, к тому же, при первичном осмотре нам вроде даже все понравилось. Через неделю новогодних праздников и активного клацанья начала облазить краска. Ужас.

No la recomiendo

LORD_TATO, MercadoLibre

  • Conclusion: No recomiendo esta camara. Sí recomiendo Sony a nivel cámara digital pequeña, pero no este modelo.
  • Pros: Tal vez el precio sea lo más atractivo, pero cuaidado.
  • Cons: Tiene Sony Lens en vez de Carl zeiss. Las fotos de noche son malas., Usa 2 pilas en vez de batería., Es dificil conseguir los drivers para Windows 7
