Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S500 6.0 Megapixel

spageddi6305, Ebay
6 December 2010
  • Summary: I bought this because my other similar camera broke and this was the same model. The price was right for me. Unfortuneately I didn't get much use from it. It also broke after about a month. I didn't do anything unusual with it. I probably should have purchased a new one instead. The price difference would only have been about $50 more. I thought I would have been able to get more use for my $40. I'm not really blaming the people who I bought it from.

Good for an ameture

  • Summary: I loved the camera when i got it in the mail and everything was great. The camera is very easy to use but dosent have anything fancy that you can play with. Also after a while the lid where you open it to put your batteries a piece from the lid broke off, so now even if the betteries are charged i have to sometimes hold the lid myself because it dosent close all the way and the battery dosent reach the camwera the whole way.

i've had a lot of cameras, this one is the worst

WorldTraveler "world traveler", Amazon
12 January 2007
  • Summary: i was swayed to buy this because of the price - and also knowing that the higher end sonys use a leica (or is it Z?)lens... well this one ain't all that. Half of the pictures are very out of focus, exposure is almost always off except in "perfect" situations, and it is very slow. I just used it for 2 months while traveling and I definately wouldn't recommend it; in fact i wish i could get a refund -- but it's not broken, just bad quality.

  • Summary: I have used Sony camcorder for sometime and loved it, so i was biased to buy Sony. I liked this camera mostly because of the price and brand. It takes good pictures outdoor in normal mode. The battery life is good and Sony recommends using rechargeable batteries, works ok. I also bought a 1GB card, got a nice deal on it. With a 1GB card, in excess of 300 photos can be taken. Good macro shots. Ease of use/ no setting required.

Cheap camera with average results

S. Singhal, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this camera almost an year ago. Results were never consistently satisfactory. Flash seems to be slow in response and less powerful, giving dull pictures. Had a fault with the auto-focus recently and luckily getting rid of it as it is still under warranty.

Sony Cyber SHOT.... si può fare di meglio.

  • Summary: Salve amici di Ciao. Questo mese se non sbaglio c'è il bonus per le fotocamere digitali, e quale migliore occasione quindi per recensirvi la mia Sony Cyber Shot DSC S500. Acquistata nel lontano 2007 come regalo per un'occasione speciale, la possiedo ormai da molti anni. E' ovvio quindi che non può competere con le macchine fotografiche attuali, però devo dire che a suo tempo questa fotocamera digitale veniva venduta con un prezzo abbastanza alto (più di 100 euro).
  • Pros: Fotocamera 6 Megapixels
  • Cons: Batteria !

Разработчику фотоаппарата руки отбить

robertus, irecommend.ru
23 June 2010
  • Excerpt: Покупали года четыре назад, привлекла цена, большой экранчик и внешний вид неплохой. Но, если к начинке фотоаппарата вопросов не было - сколько платили - то и получили, мыльница как мыльница; то вот к самой конструкции в ходе эксплуатации появились большие вопросы. Сначала облезло металлическое покрытие вокруг объектива и фотоаппарат засиял всеми цветами ободранного пластика. Затем отвалилась пимпочка на защёлке батареечного отсека.

El servicio se llama sonsur servicios tecnicos.

  • Summary: camara que de dia saca buenas fotos, pero de noche no la recomiendo. las fotografias salen borrosas. otro inconveniente que tuve fue que la aleta de sujeción de la tapa de las pilas se quebró y no fue por un golpe, si no que por uso. ésta no existe como repuesto lo cual me tiene sin utilzarla y arrepintiendome de haber gastado US$230, debiera haberme fijado en estos detalles antes de adquirir este producto.
