Often a specific password is created for the backup itself, preventing it from being restored without the correct password. This seems to be the case here. You need to know what the password was.

RESTORE DATABASE MyDB FROM DISK = 'C:\MYDB.bak' WITH PASSWORD='password' etc

Replace 'password' with your password

restore database XXX from disk ='E:\XXX\sonytcamera_1000.bak'
with PASSWORD ='password',
move 'sony1_Data' to 'E:\Data\XXX_Data.MDF',
move 'sony2t_Log' to 'E:\Log\XXX_Log.LDF',
