Monday Mystery Camera: The Sony DKC-C200X

What’s better than a good Monday Mystery Camera on a Tuesday? πŸ˜€

Sorry I’m late with this posting but I did get the YouTube video for this in late on a Monday night if that counts!

Anyway, this is just one of those cameras that I don’t feel the need or want to kill myself writing about so I’ll let the video do the talking for those interested since everything I know about it is in the video. I’ll save the double duty for the hardcore camera stuff! It’s basically a Sony DKC-C200X Passport Camera from 2003 and it is one of the largest, goofiest digital cameras I’ve ever seen! πŸ™‚

But does it work? Is it good for anything other than passports?

One thing I’d like to note. The “coffee” thing at the beginning is basically a parody of this much used and cliched scene. I’ve seen it on so many YouTube videos that I’ve lost count! πŸ˜€

As far as I can tell, the only way I can use this camera is to have the photos sent via Bluetooth to a compatible Sony Printer which I do not have. Now if anyone out there has this camera and can tell me if there’s a way to send photos from this camera to a laptop or phone I’d appreciate it! Thank you!

    1. Haha Thanks Jim! I take that as a complement coming from a man who used to work on radio! 😊 Yes, this is a very bizarre looking camera. Unfortunately Sony did not think anyone else would be interested in it besides postal workers! Thanks for your comments!


    2. By the way, one of the reasons I hate doing these YouTube videos is because I’m not always smooth and cool when the video starts recording! I usually mess up requiring several retakes but this one I was mostly β€œin the zone” I guess. Thanks! 😊


  1. Only you bro! :-))
    I would think you would get the printer (which probably has a unique data format)
    since you are the ultimate bargain hunter when it comes to gear.
    Enjoyed the video featuring this oddity…

    1. Hi Greg, try as I might I never did find a way. I don’t think it’s possible. Best thing you can do with these cameras is to get that printer that goes with it. Cheers!


  2. hello,

    theres a port below the flash out on the left hand side of the camera, looks kind of trapezoidal; its called a usb-b port. if you get a usb-b cord you can plug it into a computer to transfer your files over!
