stylish but not the best.

A. Ignatchuk, Amazon
18 September 2008
  • Summary: The red color, the perfectly slim design and touch screen seemed thrilling, so i replaced my old Sony with this one. I regretted buying it ever since my return receipt expired. The pictures look bright and vivid in color, but the quality of them is awful most of the time. The pictures are always grainy and I've never seen a camera take worse blurry pictures at night than this one. Outside day time pictures are fine.

Very disappointing follow up to my T100

Steve Ireland, Amazon
26 April 2008
  • Summary: I wanted a camera that would sit in my pocket wherever I was and that I could whip out whenever, take a shot and pop it away again. I wanted to get photos in the pub, in houses, out in parks, wherever. The photos would then sit in my Windows Media Center and play as slideshows (on my TV) while my Music is playing. The T100 was great. While the focus wasn't ideal (a bit 'soft'), it took great snaps with 'actual' representations of where I was without the use of a flash.

retured!

  • Summary: I'm a sony fan, especially when it comes to their camaras. I bought this model T200 for my mom for Christmas...and after a few days I returned it. Outdoor pictures are ok, however indoor pictures were mostly blurry or grany, no matter what setting I tried I got the same results. We had the DSC-W80 and that one work perfectly..So don't get caught up for this fancy touch screen system, you won't get fancy results either.

Buyer Beware, lacks low light/flash capabilities...

  • Summary: Well you have read all the prior reviews on this on how landbreaking, minimalistically wonderful this digicam appears to be, but not much in the way of a working synopsis has been put forth. So I have had the opportunity to travel to Europe for this last Christmas 07'(;P, and was quite dismayed at the flash/indoor and low light capabilities of this camera.

Acceptability Yet To Be Determined!- Troubleshooting Help

  • Summary: We bought our camera 2 months ago and I gave myself some time to figure it out during Christmas and after reading the entire manual. After 2 months & trying most settings, I had most of the same complaints as others on Amazon...Auto mode is useless, horrible indoor photos, blurring, yellow halos, grainy, etc. I called Sony to express my disappointment with this product.

A great looking but a VERY underperforming camera

JM, Amazon
2 January 2008
  • Summary: Absolutely gorgeous looking camera and the positive aspects ends with that. The pictures are really noisy at high ISO and auto settings. There are workarounds for this problem but the most annoying aspect is the absolutely weak red-eye detection feature. I would say that this feature only works 25% of the time. Very disappointed with Sony for releasing a product like this.I returned mine for a Canon 870IS.

Can't take a decent picture

B. Hopper, Amazon
30 December 2007
  • Summary: I'm not a professional photographer, but I have been using digital camera's and printing my own photos for the last 10 years. I decided to upgrade from my Pentax 5MP because the flash was weak and the Sony T200 8MP just had too many good sounding features to ignore. From the very first indoor shot I took (in auto mode), I knew there was something wrong.

Convenient, but low quality pictures

Amazon Customer "Dan", Amazon
19 December 2007
  • Summary: Having always owned Cannon cameras I bought this camera as it I was looking for a simple camera that was small for my wife and kids to use. But to my shock, the pictures are very grainy and appear distorted. The colors are not natural either. I thought the camera was defective so I called customer service. They had me run all the checks and then asked me to ship it in for repair, which I did.

Wonderful in theory, NOT in practice...

  • Summary: I highly recommend NOT buying this camera. It's cool to play with, but after several weeks of heavy usage, I think this is the worst camera I've owned from Sony.
  • Pros: Nice design, good build quality, huge screen, impressive feature set, cool slide show
  • Cons: Complex interface, hopeless battery life, terrible flash, poor image quality, especially in low light. AVOID!

Disappointed

P. Taylor, Amazon
26 November 2007
  • Summary: Pros: It's small, easy to turn on and off and has a large easy to see display screen. Cons: Indoor pictures are dark and grainy. The large display screen is the whole backside of the camera, so it's too easy to accidentally touch the icons and change the settings. I found it difficult to take clear, unblurry photos of anything that moved in the least. I bought it because I wanted a small easy to use point and shoot.
