Selling this as I upgraded. This camera is used but is FULLY working.

It has some cosmetic defects and the battery door requires tape to hold it shut, a piece of plastic
broke off it but with some tape it works perfectly.

The camera takes a nice picture.

Product Description

From the Manufacturer
An amazing combination value, simplicity and performance makes the Sony Cybershot DSC-S500 a perfect entry-level choice for first-time digital photographers. Advanced features place it at the head of its class 6.0-megapixel resolution for tight crops and big prints, a quality 3x optical zoom and wide-angle shooting capability, a large 2.4-inch LCD screen for setting up shots and sharing results, 25 MB internal memory for capturing images in-camera, and up to 350 shots using optional Stamina rechargeable batteries. (Stamina batteried not included--must be purchased separately.)

Advanced Features, Affordable Price
For an entry-level digital camera, the Cybershot DSC-S500 incorporates an amazing array of advanced digital features--including 6.0 MP resolution for more detail when you crop photos and make big prints. It's also amazingly simple to use, with point-and-shoot autofocus and autoexposure controls that help you get great shots every time.

One Lens Does It All
The DSC-S500 has a quality Sony lens that adjusts from 32mm wide-angle to 96mm telephoto setting (35mm equivalent), so it's great for room interiors, group shots, and panoramic landscapes as well as close-ups. And 3x optical/2x digital zoom performance lets you zoom in close or pull back for perspective--so you'll be able to cover vacation trips, holiday gatherings and special events with a more interesting range of shots.

Easy Ways to Shoot and Share
For shooting without a flash memory card, the DSC-S500 provides 25 MB internal memory to capture shots in-camera for later transfer to computer or printer. There's also a slot for optional Memory Stick Duo media, plus a bright 2.4-inch LCD screen for setting up shots and checking results. Up to 350-shot Stamina power with optional NiMH rechargeable battery keeps you shooting longer--and the supplied Cybershot Viewer software makes it easy to upload photos and scroll through thumbnail images on your PC screen.

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 MB 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-Inch 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.

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.
