DP Review have reviewed the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300, a 10.1 megapixel, ultra compact point and shoot camera with 3.5 inch touch screen LCD and 5x optical zoom lens.
They write: “the T300 has a lot of features that will benefit its target audience. Image stabilization and dynamic range optimization will help produce better photographs for the user that is thinking more about capturing the moment rather than assessing the implications of the scene’s lighting. There are also some useful post-processing effects (In-camera unsharp masking), as well as the flagrantly gimmicky ones (Apply ‘Happy faces’). Our initial impressions of the T300 were not positive – with the function guide adding delays (but no useful information), and a ‘plink’ sound effect that screamed ‘lifestyle accessory,’ rather than ‘camera,’ every time it was touched (which does nothing to solidify the ‘cameraness differentiation’). However, with these two turned off, the camera is transformed into a not-unpleasant, carry-everywhere snap shooter”. Overall the Cybershot DSC-T300 receives an “above average” rating.
