Default 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.

What does the the P nomenclature in P series camera means?


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.
