Manufacturer's Description
The DSC-S650 camera features 7.2-megapixel imager and shines in classic silver. It also houses a two-inch LCD screen wrapped in a metal body. This model features 3x optical zoom capability, blur-reduction technology (ISO), and substantial internal memory for shooting without a media card. Its storage capacity can be expanded further with optional media card.

voted hot, pretty damn cheap for a sony, even though it needs AA batteries, its probably worth the hassle at that price!

Excellent price. Voted hot.

Hassle? AA batteries are the best. High capacity, easy to replace and easy to find if you run out somewhere. Nice find rayman!

the hassle is that you have to replace them lol or take them out and recharge them...i prefer jus plugging my camerea to the mains... personal preference I guess..

Sorry but I agree with the above, AA are much preferable to non standard batteries.

BTW I have a Sony W70 (i think thats the model) and that has a non standard battery and I still have to take it out of the camera to charge it....

Not really handy if you are out and about and the battery dies also surely changing batteries is no more time consuming than pluging a plug into the mains and the other end into a camera?

Cheers for providing the link. I quite liked the test shots on this camera from the review. You can see the outdoor shots were under exposed but I would expect a little tweaking in a free image editing suite from download.com would probably resolve the outdoor shots. Thats if you have the time.

Reviews on dpreview.com are not good. They are only from 2 consumers, there are no editors reviews/tests but in all I think that this camera is a 50/50. If the size is acceptable to you then this is an OK point and shoot.

I wouldn't be wowed by the number of megapixels and to be honest this is irrelavent if you are taking snaps to have them printed in normal sizes anyway. The megapixel thing only becomes relevant when you are doing some serious cropping or making large prints.

Lack of a viewfinder is a problem for me because the LCDs do have a tendency to drop the battery life which is clearly an issue here and also I prefer using a viewfinder especially in bright conditions.

With regard to the ongoing battery debate, if you are looking to buy a camera and you are concerned over bespoke battery or AA's? I wouldn;t lose sleep over it. If you are taking a camera like this out for the day, the likelihood is you are not David Bailey and you will not need to take 200-300 shots. If you get through 100 I would say you will likely have a lot of battery life left still (unless you are using a lot of flash of course) with this camera. As such either AAs or a camera manufacturers own battery will suffice for a day's shooting without need for recahrge. If you have to replace a battery or get new ones for your camera then again either solution is no big issue. Replacement batteries for most cameras can be had on ebay (they will be copies at this price) for around a tenner (thats the camera specific batteries) and a pack of four AA rechargeables and a charger seldom costs more than a tenner either.

Like I said this is a 50/50 camera for me. Good value for money but up against plenty of competition.

Where it's not so hot seems to be a trait of many Sony cameras, after owning one myself I certainly wouldn't buy one again.

It does seem a good price though but then these sort of cameras do seem to be dropping like lead balloons

Remember you can get those special AA batteries that charge in like 10 mins.

i bought one for an old gran
shame the ebuyer price was lower but too late
there can be issues i hear from the forums about returns so maybe amazon is safer
i am buying lots --hope not wasting money on bargains
