With a digital camera all the pictures you make are stored digitally, which means you can instantly view a picture after you have taken it and take as many pictures as you like, without having to buy new films all the time. It is easy to download the pictures from your camera to your computer, either at home or at the shop and edit them before printing. Once they are on your computer, you can easily share your pics with the rest of the world by putting them on-line, or e-mailing them to friends.

Capture amazing digital images with the click of a button. The powerful, compact and easy-to-use Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-S500 is the perfect choice for first-time digital photographers.

A remarkable combination of value, simplicity and performance make the Sony® Cyber-shot® DSC-S500 a perfect choice for first-time digital photographers. The DSC-S500 combines 6.0 megapixel resolution with a quality 3X optical zoom lens design, terrific wide-angle shooting capability, 25 MB1 Internal Memory for capturing shots in-camera, and a bright 2.4"2 LCD screen that allows you to check your shots and share results immediately.

Feature List

6.0 Megapixel Super HAD™ CCD
More megapixels give you more detail and definition when you make big prints or crop in tight on your subject. The Sony advanced Super HAD™ (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD design allows more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing noise.

3X Optical/2X Digital Zoom
3X Optical Zoom helps the DSC-S500 bring distant subjects closer and lets you frame shots for better composition; the Sony precision 2X Digital Zoom provides an additional 2X magnification to zoom in close without jagged edges.

Capture Images In-Camera
With 25 MB2 Internal Memory, the DSC-S500 allows you to shoot without using a memory card -- then easily transfer your images to optional Memory Stick Duo™ media, upload photos to your computer or make prints on your digital printer.

Large 2.4”1 LCD Screen
The DSC-S500 gives you a big, bright LCD screen for reading camera menus, composing shots, checking results and sharing your photos on location.

The DSC-S500 can capture 320 x 240 AVI audio/video clips at high frame rate (up to 30 frames per second), with length limited only by the capacity of your media.

Burst Mode
You can fire off three shots automatically at 1-second intervals (VGA standard mode) or 2-second intervals (6 MP mode) -- a great way to capture a child’s first steps or a pet’s best tricks.

Stamina® Battery Power
With optional Sony NiMH rechargeable batteries, you can capture up to an amazing 3502 shots -- shooting capacity that’s about the equivalent of 10 rolls of 35mm film. With supplied AA alkaline batteries, the DSC-S500 can capture up to 602 shots.

Camera type*
There are a number of common types of digital cameras: compact cameras, bridge cameras, mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras (MILC) and single lens reflex (SLR) cameras. Bridge cameras 'bridge the gap' between the low-end compact and high-end professional (SLR) cameras. Also MILCs populate this mid-segment by combining the larger sensors and interchangeable lenses of DSLRs with the live-preview viewing system of compact cameras.
