Good camera, bad reliability

mct, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: I have been using this camera for more than a year. Before explaining the issue that I experienced recently, a few points below: pros: - good picture quality in environment with enough light (unlike some of the other reviewers think). vivid and vibrant color. I have at least 2 cameras that I can compare: Olympus 7010 and Canon SLR 450D. Much better focus and picture than Olympus and almost comparable with Canon 450D.

Great Camcorder, Terrible Camera

Paul M. Barth, Amazon
20 September 2009
  • Summary: I've owned 20 digital cameras and this is the second most frustrating camera I've owned. In perfect outdoor settings with huge ample lighting this camera routinely fails to auto-focus. I've reset the camera, tried every different setting (and yes I actually know what the settings do) and it just doesn't work right. When it takes good pictures, they look great, but I end up taking five times as many pictures as needed to get maybe one good one.

Very dissapointing. Video quality is poor and time between shots is very slow.

  • Summary: I run a photography studio, so I know a little about cameras. Although, we do not use point and shoot cameras for our business we do use them day to day and on vacation because we hate carrying the big boys around. I have been a long time user of Canon cameras (both professional and point and shoot) and I have always been extremely pleased with them.

Worst Sony yet...

Yogi Moore "YogiM", Amazon
25 February 2009
  • Summary: Of all my 3 T-series cameras, this is by far the worst. First, the IQ is ok, better than the T30 but not as good as my Panasonic TZ5. The 720p video quality is however, awesome, almost as good as my VadoHD 720p pocket camcorder. The fatal flaw in the T500 is the HORRIBLE touch screen and the goofy menu structure. Believe me, you will hate this approach. Lo-res screen, fingerprints everywhere, dim in bright daylight, buttons that require many presses to register.

  • Excerpt: В общем очень противоречивая фотокамера - на фоне достойного бренда, приятного дизайна, качества материалов и сборки - она не справляется с основной задачей, а именно фотографией... Сразу возникает вопрос для чего её создавали и при том за весьма высокую цену - если играться ребёнку то ценник не должен быть выше 3000р., если для повседневного ношения с собой благодаря размерам, то опять таки цена должна быть не более 5000р.
  • Pros: Размеры, дизайн, качество сборки и материал корпуса, качественный сенсорный экран очень приличного разрешения, хорошая цветопередача.
  • Cons: Качество фото съёмки. Собственно на уровне самых дешёвых мыльниц - ценового диапазона до 3000р. На ряду с хорошей цветопередачей - безобразная детализация фотографии и это на ISO-100 (кроп 100 - ужасен), о более высоких ISO разговор вообще не идёт, они не рабочие. Видео по качеству очень слабенькое - заявленное разрешение - рекламный ход и не более. Проблема совместимости карт памяти - далеко не все фирменные Sony она видит, напротив карты сторонних производителей видит.
