  • Summary: Great little camera. The only reason why I bought a different camera a few years later is because the zoom on this one doesn't work while recording video.

Sony Cybershot DSC S40

6 September 2007
  • Excerpt: "...a memory card from a sony shop. It is only 128mb, but that is enough for me since I don't even use up this amount of space. It holds around 73 photographs, which to alot of people probably wouldn't be enough space, but fortunately memory cards are cheaper now. At the time it cost me about £15 but now you can buy a 2gb card for that, which is alot more reasonable. The camera is fairly "sturdy" in size, weighing about 0.1kg and measuring 5.1*9.7*3.4cm ...
  • Pros: User Friendly
  • Cons: Small internal memory

Not recommended

  • Summary: I have bought two Sony Cybershot digital cameras within the past three years, and was very very disappointed. At first everything seemed great, but the first one just stopped working within about eighteen months for no discernable reason, and refused to function any more. There was no point sending it off to Sony as they'd charge for repairs and for that cost I might as well buy a replacement which is why I bought the second one.

  • Summary: i bought this camera about a year ago, it was my second digital camera ( the first one a problem this its battery life), so this time i went for a reliable sony. it was brilliant and did every thing that i needed, good battery life, easy to use and small and compact, however one day it just stoped working, showing the same access message other sony cameras seem to have, i sent it back but they said they couldn't fix it, what a shame because it was my baby, i would warn...

  • Excerpt: "This camera would be good for someone that doesnt know much about using digital cameras, or cant afford a top of the range one. I got this camera about a year ago after thinking it was the best one in the catalogue where i purchased it from. Boy was i wrong. Im not that impressed to be fairly honest. The images dont come out very well, and the zoom is terrible. Also it doesnt have auto-focus, so if your taking photos of something thats likely to ...

It's a movie camera

7 July 2006
  • Excerpt: "I was pleasantly surprised when I read the manual and discovered it could take movies complete with sound. It may not have the quality of a camcorder but for recording those special moments it's great. For ordinary photos the resolution is perfectly adequate and you can fill the monitor screen with a quarter of the frame and still have perfectly good resolution. I've never generally had any problem with exposure but even with a dark shot it can ...
  • Pros: movie mode
  • Cons: memory stick are relatively expensive

  • Excerpt: "...There has been warnings from Sony that there is a problem with some of the LCD sceens which makes them go blank and although this camera isn't on the list for this occuring, there has been incidents. I think if this does happen everything will still work by pressing buttons alongside the user manual so you know which mode you're changing etc... Contact Sony before you buy incase you're worried of this happening to you. Hope this helps! ...
  • Pros: A small, stylish camera, easy to use even for beginners that takes good quality pictures
  • Cons: LCD screen could be made bigger so you don't have to zoom in on images

The camera also has Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens and MPEG video ...
  • Pros: Easy to use, 32MB internal RAM, 3 x Optical Zoom,Carl Zeiss® Vario - Tessar® lens
