Sony DSC-P50

The Sony DSC-P50 is a fairly nondescript digital camera introduced in 2001. The P50 belongs to the now defunct “P” series of Sony Cyber-shot cameras which are characterized by squat physical proportions and rounded edges. Normally, I wouldn’t bother posting something like this on Vintage Camera Lab but this humble Sony has the distinction of being my very first digital camera, the one that liberated me from what, as a poor college student, I considered to be the prohibitively high cost of buying/processing film and allowed me to shoot to my heart’s content.
