DSCS500 CYBERSHOT 6MP 2.4IN LCDCAM 3X ZOOM 32MB INT MS DU IN (MSD)
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.
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.
Convenient Photo Modes
To adjust quickly for specific shooting situations, the DSC-S500 lets you choose from several convenient photo modes: Auto, P-Auto, and Scene Selections for Twilight, Twilight Portrait, Landscape, Soft Snap, Candlelight, and Beach environments.
QVGA Movie Mode
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.
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.
