Sony DSC S650

 

The Sony DSC S650 is a seven megapixel, easy to use, starter digital camera. It is relatively inexpensive and is likely to appeal to many who are looking for a cheaper option from a leading brand.

"The Sony DSC S650 is a seven megapixel, easy to use, starter digital camera. Overall I was disappointed with the picture quality. There are also one or two further issues you need to be aware of as well."
