Sony Cyber-Shot S40

Digital Photography Interface
27 November 2005
  • Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot S40 is a great camera, comparable to others in its class. Battery life is excellent, especially even with the LCD on and using only 2 AAs. The S40 feels tough, even on the memory card and battery doors. Though they are limited and preset, the S40 still has some useful manual controls. Much of the S40's features were nice except the limited controls and slow, limited continuous shooting. Noise levels were very low - A good thing, in fact.
  • Pros: Pocketable, Value for money, Excellent movie mode, Excellent battery life (The best I've seen so far in the S40's class), Low noise levels, No red-eye, Flash with average range, USB 2.0
  • Cons: Limited manual controls, Photos a little soft, Slow, limited continuous shooting, Startup time a little slow
