Sony Cyber-Shot T500

Digital Photography Interface
23 September 2013
  • Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot T500 is a 10 megapixel compact camera with a larger than average 5X stabilized zoom lens and huge 3.5 inch touchscreen. The screen takes up just about the entire back of the T500 and there are precisely three buttons on the entire camera (and that includes the shutter button!
  • Pros: Decent image quality (with some issues), Large 5X zoom lens with optical image stabilization, Huge touchscreen LCD with good visibility, Fast performing, 720p movie mode, Fancy playback mode
  • Cons: Color fringing and some edge softness, No manual controls, Below average battery life, Little real estate for holding the camera; LCD attracts fingerprints fast, Confusing menus, touchscreen interface needs hard presses and too many presses to reach certain settings, 10 minute per movie clip limitation, Unintuitive and confusing menu and “home menuâ€� system

  • Conclusion: Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-T500 offers a fast and intuitive touch screen, excellent image quality, and HD video, but expect poor battery performance and shutter lag, too.
  • Pros: Great image quality. Touch-screen menus are quick and responsive. Big 3.5-inch screen. High-def video recording. Includes a camera docking station with HDMI out.
  • Cons: Poor battery performance. HD video is very susceptible to shakes and is a bit choppy. Significant shutter lag. A bit pricey.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T500 Review

Digital Camera Review
15 December 2008
  • Summary: When Sony announced that it was building a small camera with huge video capability for power users, we were interested to find out exactly what the finished product would be like. While the T models have always been snappy performers, it's always been the feeling around here that they were better suited to casual shooters.
  • Pros: Slim, stylish form factor, Best video capture around in a digicam, Easy-to-use full auto camera, Speedy performance
  • Cons: Noise, loss of color render highest ISOs useless, AF flakes out on ocassion, Some cheap looking plastics used in construction, Needs a more powerful battery

  • Conclusion: I think the Sony DSC T500 will really appeal to people who like great looking gadgets. The HD quality movies and touch sensitive screen are more likely to be the selling points than the picture quality. The picture quality is o.k., but it is mid range rather than anything special.
  • Pros: Design and style - touch screen control
  • Cons: Photos could be that bit better

  • Summary: Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-T500 is a decent compact camera with some nifty features such as 720p video recording. However, its touch-screen interface is irritating and its images are noisier than normal.
  • Pros: Captures good detail, HD video recording, HDMI included on dock
  • Cons: Noisy images even at low sensitivities, touch-screen interface is very fiddly

  • Excerpt: Resembling an old-fashioned cigarette case, courtesy of its silver brushed metal front - 5x Carl Zeiss Vario Tessar zoom lens hidden by slide-open lens cover that stretches the width of its faceplate - the 10.1 effective megapixel Cyber-shot DSC-T500 continues Sony's successful run of minimalist and slender Cyber-shot compacts. Not much larger than a credit card, their ethos appears to be mainly one of simplicity.
