Sony Cyber-shot DCS-T200 Reviews

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Sony CyberShot T200 and writes;
” Sony’s top of the line model, the Cyber-shot DSC-T200 really makes a statement with its sleek design, high performance and pleasing image quality. It is incredibly easy to use with a 3.5-inch touch screen, well thought out menu system, and full auto and program modes with face and smile detection. With a MSRP of US$399, this model is a little expensive, but still offers a great value.”

DigitalCameraReview reviews the Sony CyberShot T200 and writes;
“Picky shooters will undoubtedly find plenty to pick at with the T200. Evaluated as a ratio of image quality to price, the T200 seems like a bad deal, and for serious IQ junkies it probably is…All of this said, the T200 combines a unique user experience with image quality that should stand up to the standards of most snapshot shooters. ”

DCRP reviews the Sony CyberShot T200 and writes;
“The DSC-T200’s photo quality was pretty good for an ultra-compact camera. The camera captures sharp photos with pleasing colors, with generally accurate exposure. A few times I did notice that the camera really blew out the highlights, though. Purple fringing was well-controlled, as was noise. There isn’t much noise since the camera is applying a fair amount of noise reduction, the results of which are visible even at low ISOs. ”

CNET reviews the Sony CyberShot T200 and writes;
“The good: Fast performance; Smile Shutter and touch-based focus are quirky but useful features; touch-screen interface much improved over previous cameras. The bad: Too reliant on the touch screen; poor picture quality compared with the T100’s; tiny zoom rocker. The bottom line: Though still a solid camera, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T200’s touch-sensitive LCD and lower image quality present a step back from its excellent predecessor. ”

PhotoReview.au reviews the Sony CyberShot T200 and writes;
“Imatest showed colour reproduction to be very similar to the T70 we reviewed. However, lateral chromatic aberration was much less and coloured fringing was only visible with high magnification. The T200 was able to focus closer than the T70 – although still not as close as many digicams.”

GoodGearGuide reviews the Sony CyberShot T200 and writes;
“Sony’s Cyber-Shot DSC-T200 is an interesting camera. Its pictures suffer from some sharpness and chromatic aberration issues, but are still good enough for small and medium sized prints.”

Cameras.uk reviews the Sony CyberShot T200 and writes;
“Shutter lag times are also very impressive. This is one of the fastest cameras around. The time for a single shot was 0.15 seconds and for five shots 6.97 seconds. Turning on flash does slow the camera down, but the times recorded were still a respectable 0.48 seconds for a single shot and 12.53 seconds for five. ”

ePhotozine reviews the Sony CyberShot T200 and writes;
” ISO80 shows amazing detail reproduction with all detail shown a smooth finish to the grey card and ISO100 has little difference. Being really critical, ISO200 shows a minor change in noise on the black square and this has started to sharpen on ISO400…If you are looking for a decent camera with vast options available to you, a good lens and excellent noise performance, then this is the camera for you. ”

ePhotographia reviews the Sony CyberShot T200 and writes;
“All in all, don’t expect too much – you’ll get great 13 x 18 cm (5 x 7”) prints, but no huge blowups. If you’re looking for a gorgeous and technically superior minicam, these two cameras are perfect for you. On the other hand, if it’s the ultimate image quality you’re after, take a look at the competition.”
