can do

  • Summary: I bought the second hand camera for $65 through bidding but i was surprised when i have to pay $56 for the shipment. so i am disappointed as i could have a new one in my own country for the same amount. the problem with the camera is that the place where we put the dry cell,the shutter does not shut properly and it may happen that the battery may fall out.

Not for the adventurous ones

  • Summary: This camera has issues. I am comparing it to my previous Kodak point and shoot Easyshare 3.2 MP digital that was replaced. That camera didn't have the fancy claims to 6 MP or video, but it was always reliable. The batteries in the Kodak never stop performing when you most needed your camera. I dropped it numerous times and it survived without a flaw. It was really simple to use and transfer photos to any computer. And it took great photos without blurring the subject.

I was disappointed.

Ming Wu, Amazon
25 March 2007
  • Summary: I bought this camera as my old Sony Cybershot was broken. It's good to take pictures and make short video record. But the features I was disappointed are 1. the date is not shown on the picture; 2. there is no sound while you replay your video clip; 3. my memory card reader can't read the memory stick.

Not for parents

  • Summary: I rarely review items and a even more rarely give bad reviews. This camera is pretty good and might be better than I can tell since I'm not much of an expert. BUT, for the reason we got it: to take pictures our baby. It stinks. It takes a few seconds from when you push the button to when the picture is taken. Just enough time for her to move and to no longer have a usable shot. I'm a lifelong Sony fan, but It's time for start looking outside the family.

  • Summary: I bought this for my daughter because it's easy to use. So far she's been happy with it, but it is a sony product, meaning that it might go out at any time.

Too many blurry pictures

Mom2Three, Amazon
7 December 2006
  • Summary: I've had quite a few digital cameras and I am the least satisfied with this one. A majority of the shots I take come out blurry...pretty much if there is ANY movement, it's going to be blurry. Not very effective when you're taking pictures of small children! It does, however, do the best job I've ever seen with video. I wouldn't buy it again, though...I'd pay a little more and get another Canon Powershot.

"Sony Cyber Shot Dsc S500"...infedele compagna estiva!

dominus1, Ciao
24 February 2015
  • Summary: Eh già! Come da titolo, la mia Sony Cyber Shot Dsc S500 mi ha accompagnato in tante vacanze estive ma....sul più bello mi ha tradito!! Regalatami per un compleanno di un bel po di anni fa, questa camera Sony ha tante qualità....ma per iniziare preferisco soffermarmi sui suoi 2 grandi difetti. Il primo è sicuramente la memoria, scarsissima per davvero!
  • Pros: qualità, dimensioni e peso ridotti, praticità
  • Cons: durata batterie, memoria scarsa

  • Excerpt: Покупали очень давно,фотографировать новорожденного,поснимать как он растет.Недостатки стало видно сразу:через небольшой промежуток времени стал облазить.Фото со вспышкой получается ужасное,ничего не видно и глаза красные(если фотографировать ближе).При движении изображение размывается.Много режимов,которые вообще не нужны.Теперь он устарел и фотки не могу скинуть на ноутбук,приходиться через старую модель компьютера.Очень не удобно что пальчиковые батарейки,очень быстро...
