Sony DSC S950

 

Not every digital camera can be a winner. Picture quality is o.k., but I found the Cybershot DSC S950 a little slow to respond. It is easy to use, compact and one of the cheaper cameras from a recognised brand.

Sony Cybershot DSC-S950

 

Overall simplicity just set to auto for general picture taking. It also has the facilities for setting flash and some scene specific modes. Picture quality good for the class of camera. Optical zoom adequate, if you want more buy an SLR. Bought for...

Like most small digital cameras it can be fiddly to change settings especially if you have big hands - I have. Have not yet noticed whether the battery charge fades quickly when not used, as some earlier models do, mainly because I haven't stopped...
