What does DSC and P in P-10 and P-100 means?
 
Greetings! What does the word DSC means? Does it Digital Sony Camera?
What does the the P nomenclature in P series camera means? Secondly
How does Sony numbers the cameras? [I had discovered in Olympus series
that C in C-4040 means cameras for advanced users and D meant
camera for amateurs. In Kodak Cx means cameras for beginners and Dx
means cameras for advanced camera users.] Just Curious.

Digital Still Camera.

Nothing. The letter prefix indicates the camera shape, in this case long,
thin, asymmetric with the lens towards the right hand side of the camera
face. The P series are, indeed, aimed at the "point and shoot" beginner
market- though the current P100, P120 and P150 have manual shutter modes-
but then so are the U, T and W series. Only the V and F series are aimed
higher, at the "prosumer" market.
