Summary: I bought this camera because of Sony's history of making excellent products. Boy was I disappointed! After a few weeks the camera would turn off by itself, flash internal diagnostic malfunctions, and basically just refuse to work.
Summary: After reading some of the other reviews here, I feel I must also report on/off problems with this camera. Sometimes it works fine, but most of the time when you turn the camera on it will either briefly power up and then immediately shut off or stay on for a few seconds and then shut off.
Summary: I bought a DSC-S600 and babied it - Kept in in a padded hard case. The LCD internally developed a bunch of cracks, though there's not a mark on the camera. Sent it in for Warranty service. Sure enough, they claim the camera was abused, and want to bill me 70% of what I paid for it to fix.
Careful, it works only for a few weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Summary: It worked fine the first week. Then the focus stopped working. I sent it to repair. It worked well for a couple of weeks and then the focus stopped working. I sent it for repair for the second time. It worked well for a couple of weeks and then stopped working.
Summary: Thanks for the usual great service Newegg. You guys might want to contact Sony to see if they are going to have a recall or something.
Pros: The camera provides for some very high quality images and is easy to plug into the computer.
Cons: There is a serious problem with Sony's quality control on this particular model. I purchased one as well as several of my friends. In a matter of three days (to a couple months for my friends) the camera randomly dies and refuses to turn on for more than 2-3 seconds. If you read the quick flash o...
Summary: I really had high hopes for this camera as it really seems like a lot of bang for the buck. But it would not power up at all after unpacking. I was finally able to get it powered up after much fiddling.The manual even said to take out batteries for 1 minute to solve problem.
Summary: My DSC-s600 is only one day old and had 15 pictures in it,that's the end of the story.Camera turned off automatically and the shutter remains open.It spoiled my vacation.I strongly recommend not to go for it.Technically it is very badly designed.
Summary: i purchased this two weeks ago and it is dead!! it is as other reviewers had, an 'access' error. i try to turn it on and it shuts off immediately. soooooooooooooooooooo pathetic, i highly warn anyone about even considering this camera! NONONONO!
Summary: I purchased this product for my wife for Mother's Day, expecting it to be joyous occasion. To our mutual dismay and surprise, this camera not work as advertised - it would only stay on for a few minutes.
