Interesting review of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S600, Sony's latest Chinese-made digital camera. Many manufacturers are moving some of their production facilities into China to save money and the results are a mixed bag. The reviewer liked the price—$199—but the quality was just not there.

The bottom line?

The Sony is aimed at casual photographers who want decent image quality and not too many frills. In that instance, Sony succeeded by providing an O.K. compact point-and-shoot camera that does an adequate job in Auto for a very good price. For someone who wants even a smidgeon more, this digicam is not for you.
