Throwback – The Sony Cybershot DSC-U10

I just realized that my I first digital camera was actually a Sony. A blue Cybershot DSC-U10 like that on the picture.

It was back in 2003 when I got this tiny Cybershot so I could get photos of my son who was then just a little over a year old. During that time, these tiny Cybershots were all the rage. They we’re pocketable and digital and had a whopping 1.3 megapixels of imaging power, fixed 5.0mm 1:2.8, auto focus, “auto marco” and rechargable AAA nickel metal hydride batteries (See DP review article from 2002 for more accurate specs).

I accidentally found this Japanese blog post while working early Sunday morning and couldn’t help but recall all the nice memories I’ve captured with it. You can still find the manual for this on the Sony support website.

Unfortunately, this camera was stolen from me back in the same year by a white guy who conned me and my friends, but that’s a different story altogether.
