Product Features
  • 10.1 megapixels Super HAD CCD image sensor
    A powerful 10.1 megapixels 1/2.3" Super HAD CCD image sensor helps you capture gorgeous images with superb contrast and clarity down to the finest detail. With 10.1 megapixels, you can create stunning, photo-quality prints up to A3 size, or crop your images and still come away with high resolution shots.
  • 4x optical zoom lens
    4x optical zoom lens captures sharp images, even from a distance, and enables close-up shooting up to just less than 2" from the subject.
  • 2.7" LCD display
    A large 2.7" LCD display features sharp, natural color that makes it easy to compose shots, read menus, and view photos.
  • Face Detection technology
    Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts flash, focus, and exposure to deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends.
  • SteadyShot digital image stabilization
    SteadyShot digital image stabilization compensates for camera shake and helps prevent blur by capturing two photos at high shutter speeds and combining them into a single crisp, clear image.
  • High sensitivity mode (ISO 3200)
    High ISO allows for faster shutter speed, so you can take photos indoors or in low light without the need for a flash. In addition to high sensitivity mode (ISO), you can select up to eight ISO settings when shooting in program auto mode to adjust sensitivity to your shooting conditions.
  • Scene selection modes
    Choose from seven convenient scene selection modes to quickly adjust for specific shooting conditions, including high sensitivity, twilight, twilight portrait, landscape, soft snap, snow, and beach.
  • Easy shooting mode
    With easy shooting mode, even beginners can take great photos. In easy shooting mode, easy-to-understand basic instructions are displayed on the LCD screen and the camera switches to all automatic settings so you can just take the picture without worrying about settings.
  • Histogram display
    Histogram display gives you more control over your images with the ability to optimize exposure adjustments for better detail in both light and dark areas of a photo.
  • In-camera retouching tools
    Retouch and enhance your photos on the go with in-camera trimming and red-eye correction functions.
  • Multi-purpose resize function
    The multi-purpose resize function lets you change the aspect ratio of an image right in the camera, so you can adjust images as necessary, whether you want to display them on a compatible HDTV3, e-mail them or upload them to a blog.
  • Direct playback button
    Direct playback button provides one-touch ability to review images while shooting, or quickly start up playback mode from power-off status.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S950 10.1 Megapixel Review

Review For: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S950 10.1 MP Digital Camera - Silver

In particular, I love the 10.1 megapixel capability. Having crisp, clear, photos is what everyone wants and this camera provides that. I have even shot photo unsteady, and the picture was still clear and sharp. I also like the size. By it being small, I can just drop it in my pocket or purse and it fits just fine. By it being so small, the thing I don't like is that a little pouch doesn't come with it, you have to buy it separately. The camera must have this protection so it seems it should automatically come with it and Sony should not consider it as an accessory to be purchased separately.

I like how I can retrieve my pictures several different ways, first, by use of the memory card, or by using the provided transfer cable, or by using your own firewire cable, or just viewing them on the camera screen.

The price was perfectly suited for someone like me on a budget.

Overall, I am very pleased with this camera.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S950

Review For: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S950 10.1 MP Digital Camera - Silver

I tried out a few different digital cameras before going with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S950 10.1 Megapixel camera. This unit should be all the camera that a normal person would ever need. It has the option of setting all of the settings yourself, for those times when you are trying to produce a certain effect. It also has some of the most advanced point and shoot options that I have seen in any other digital point and shoot camera. So it doesn't matter if you want to be in total control, or if you don't want to be bothered with all of that and just pay attention to the fun at hand. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S950 10.1 Megapixel camera should be plenty of camera for you.

Nice deal

Review For: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S950 10.1 MP Digital Camera - Silver

I bought an used digital camera two months ago and was very impressed with the features available on this inexpensive camera. It has a 10.1MP resolution, video, camera and speakerphone. The camera size is perfect for carrying in a pocket and the battery has a pretty good lifespan. My only complaint is that the images on the screen are very dark. Other than that I'm very pleased with the purchase of this camera and the best of all it's the price I paid for it.

Positive purchase

Review For: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S950 10.1 MP Digital Camera - Silver

I purchased my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S950/P 10.1 Megapixel camera for my daughter. It is small enough to keep in her purse and easy to use. It takes wonderful pictures and she loves the rechargable battery. The price was fair and the camera provides consistent service and the photos are easy to put on my computer.

Fantastic camera for an even greater price.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S950 10.1 MP Digital Camera - Silver

I bought this product to use on an upcoming vacation. Not wanting to spend a lot, as we've already invested a ton on various other items for this trip, I thought it was a great deal. The camera came to me with a dead battery, but I bought a charger and new battery for less than fifteen dollars and it works great. So accessories for this are very affordable. The picture quality is great, even for our fast-moving pets. No blur if taken correctly. All around great camera and an even better bargain. Would highly recommend.
