Summary: I've had a DSC-950 for 2 years. this is one of the best cameras that I ever had. Everything about the camera is a plus. I had my first DSC-950 camera stolen at my Mothers funeral with a lot of pictures of my Mother and family. I looked at other cameras but for this style, the DSC-950 was the best. So I ordered another DSC-950. I am glad I found one because I guess they do not make the DSC-950 anymore. I Hope the person that took the camera enjoy it as I did.
Excerpt: I'm usually great with technology...except for digital cameras. Usually, they have so many buttons and symbols that it's hard to figure out how to even turn on the flash. The Sony Cybershot is the exception. You have a nice little wheel with symbols, and it labels them on the display as you turn the wheel, so you always know what you're selecting. Options are easy to read and select, and if you want more functionality, the camera offers that, too. The zoom is great, too.
Sony Cyber-shot 10.1 DSC-S950 Digital Camera gets the job done!
9 September 2012
Excerpt: This is our third Sony Cyber-shot. We have found them to be reliable cameras that take pretty good pictures. Though I'd love to think of myself of an amazing photographer the truth is the only reason our pictures come out decent is because of this camera. It has a steady-shot feature that keeps my shaking hands from ruining every picture. I can take mini-movies. I have taken some beautiful up-close pictures of beautiful flowers.
Excerpt: My parents got this camera for my daughter when she went on a Washington DC trip. I have since taken it over because it takes better pictures than my digital camera! The zoom is sufficient for most things and it has different settings to take better pictures depending on your surroundings and the subject of your picture. Most of the time we just use it on the easy setting. The flash is good and so it the red-eye reduction.
Excerpt: I purchased this camera because it was a 10MP camera with a record video option. I knew the video recording was not HD, so I was not expecting it to look spectacular. The record quality was about average for a normal SD camera, so it won't be replacing a standard HD camcorder or anything. As a camera, it functions quite well, and takes solid pictures. There is a fair delay after pressing the button as it attempts to "focus" on the subject.
Excerpt: I absolutely love my digital camera. I purchased it before my freshman year of college (I'm currently a junior), and it has served me well through the ups and downs. I knew I wanted a camera with a rechargeable battery, because when I start taking pictures... if there isn't some kind of battery power limit, I could easily continue taking pictures beyond the life of the battery (and cost myself a small fortune!).
Excerpt: This camera is extremely easy to use! The different settings are changed though knobs instead of buttons which make it easier to see which mode you are in. There are 5 different settings for taking pictures and a video recording mode. The Auto Adjustment setting is the easiest for taking regular pictures. It automatically adjusts to light settings and uses subject detection. There are 4 flash settings and 2 focus settings.
