Sony CyberShot DSC-S950 Reviews reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-S950 and writes;
“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.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

DPInterface reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-S950 and writes;
“Sony Cyber-shot S950 is reserved only for taking pictures (not videos); casual and non-spontaneous ones in bright light to be precise. Image quality was just average too, not best-in-class, so make sure you take a look at competing cameras before you buy.”

Sony CyberShot DSC-S950 Press Release

Cyber-shot™ S950

Available in a choice of stylish silver, pink or black finishes, the easy-to-use Cyber-shot™ S950 is your perfect introduction to the world of beautiful digital images.

Image quality stands out, thanks to a generous 10.1 effective megapixel resolution and powerful 4x zoom lens to bring your subject closer. There’s a large 2.7-inch screen for viewing your shots in comfort. First-time camera users won’t be confused by simple shooting menus and a choice of six easy-to-use Scene Selection modes. There’s also an Easy Shooting mode that simplifies operation while offering helpful on-screen instructions.

Originally introduced on high-end Cyber-shot™ models, enhanced Face Detection can track up to eight faces in a scene, fine-tuning focus and exposure for beautiful portraits. SteadyShot image stabilisation compensates for camera-shake. In tandem with a special High Sensitivity mode (max. ISO 3200), it’s the key to crisp, beautiful images – especially when you’re shooting indoors or in low light without a tripod.

I baught this same camera a few weeks ago. I LOVE the macro focusing, and I LOVE how well the quality is… BUT, I’m having issues with the memory cards. I don’t know if its the camera or the card itself thats causing the issues. Every card I use in the camera seems to malfunction soon after use. Did anyone else have similar problems??

What card issues are you exactly seeing. I have some issues as well. How did you resolve the issue? What brand card are you using?

This was a Christmas present this year and in the first 20 pictures in 2 days, it had froze up like 3 or 4 times and when it does nothing will work … You can’t even power off! If you take the battery out then re-install it, it resets itself and will again work for a shot or 2 till it freezes again. The retail store would not go for a refund (with the bill) and Sony has not helped at all either! Send it in for warranty they say! The Sony site said sent it to an autherized dealer 50 miles from my place and that cost $10. postage (Chilliwack BC. to Surrey), now they have returned it to me and say send it to Ontario (what will this cost?) Works terrible in low light conditions also (you can’t see the LCD screen)
The only reason I have this camera is because it was a present. Poor service and crappy, cheap camera. I thought more of Sony than this… until now.

In Indonesia, once you bought something you cannot return it. I bought the S 950 and had
to resell it to a sceond hand store for around 50% or the original price I paid. It was that bad! Bought another camera which I am satisfied.
