Summary: My daughters camera seems to be experiencing the same problem as others. She bought it at 14 years old with her own $ to take on a school field trip to Washington. She took about 50 shots and then the power button would only work randomly or the lense would freeze coming out or closing.
Summary: I bought this to replace my first digital camera, an Olympus that I loved but needed less time between shots and more megapixels. I have been disappointed with this camera. My camera has stopped working again for the second time, and is now out of warranty.
Summary: My cannon died the day before my daughters birthday so I ran out and tried a bunch of cameras in the morning and bought one. Although this camera is 6 mp, my 3.0 Cannon took much clearer pictures. I have had this camera for 9 months and I am sending it in for the second time for repair.
Summary: After a few months use the camera got persnickety, often demanding upon startup that I restart it. Now that the camera has completely broken down, with the lens fully extended and stuck in place, I think this was a sign of a too-delicate lens mechanism that was beginning to deteriorate.
Summary: I love SONY cybershot cameras...and though I really like a lot of features of this camera I have to say that the red eye problem is terrible. I previously owned a P72 and never worried about this. Now I have read that these small cameras have this problem because the flash is too close to the lens.
Summary: After doing a lot of research on digital cameras, I decided to ignore the reviews from people whose cameras were defective, and bought the Sony DSC-S600 for myself. With the first camera I was sent, I noticed a problem almost immediately. The POWER button did not work consistently.
Summary: This camera died within a week of buying--some kind of "access" error. We took it back, and it died again (same error)--this time a couple of months after the exchange. When you turn the camera on, it shuts itself off a couple of seconds later, leaving the shutter open.
Summary: I purchased this camera for taking snapshots of my nephew at the park, children's museum, just about everywhere, and after just one outing I was very satisfied with the quality of the pictures and the ease of use in a variety of settings.
Summary: the sony cybershot dsc-s600 was a bit disappointing. though it has nice features and a good lense, after only shooting about 25 pictures on the camera, it completely shut down working. now the lense cover won't shut. supposedly brand new camera defective after only one day of use.
