2000 Sony Cybershot DSC-S50 camera review & comparison

Thanks! Share it with your friends!

A look at a Sony Cybershot digital camera from the year 2000, and a comparison between it and my 2003 Kodak EasyShare DX4330 camera. *Correction:* 1600 (3:2) mode has a resolution of 1600×1072. And BBISHOPPCM’s Sony Mavica is a CD-R/RW camera (the MVC-CD200), not a floppy disk camera. The photos are presented in sequence with the Kodak first, then the Sony second for each shot. The Sony looked smoother on its LCD while recording video, but the Kodak looks smoother in the actual video. The camera I used to record this video was the Philips CAM110.

selfie cam in the year 2000 is so rare

Erica Spencer says:

How does it charge? Can’t seem to find much information about the camera.

I bought that camera in 2000. Cost an arm & a leg (in the UK). Took great digital images for the time.

Just by coincidence I found my Cyber-shot S30 (1.3MP) yesterday, but there's no battery or memory card in it. I'm going to hunt some down and have a play. As a retired photographer I can tell you that 3-4MP is usually enough for most people. In fact, almost all of my photography nowadays is with low megapixel, vintage digital cameras. The one thing that I didn't like about my Kodak P&S cameras is that they use too much JPEG compression which adversely affects image quality.

My first new good digital camera. I got this one in August of 2000 it cost close to 500 bucks then at Best Buy.

Those memory sticks went up to a gigabyte. I saw an ad for them and they cost close to 500 dollars if memory serves correct

This camera has the heart of a Sony Mavica, but with the Disc Drive removed

Shellie Carlson says:

So many Mavica carry overs.
