CNET Editors' Rating

The Good Relatively decent low-light photos; reasonable wide-angle lens; extra flash reach; built-in neutral-density filter.

The Bad No video outputs; few manual controls.

The Bottom Line Solid high-ISO performance and a relatively wide-angle view are among the features that make the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-S600 a versatile budget-priced 6-megapixel camera for casual snapshooters.

Edge oversharpening stood out as the S600's chief postprocessing problem (top), while purple fringing tended to be its biggest optical artifact (bottom).




Though noise is less of an issue when you view photos at small sizes, there is a visible exposure difference at higher ISO settings. For instance, compare the ISO 200 photo on top with the ISO 800 photo on the bottom.
