Summary: Like a previous buyer but in my case after 20 months of usage, the SS Unit - which I understand to be the Steady Shutter Unit failed. Problem is: as per another review -the camera vibrates when powered on and difficult to stop, so assume it is a design fault that Sony do not accept Is it a manufacturing fault that needs a recall? Cost me £90+ to get repaired Was told that if people were having the problem then a recall would be done, but no one has complained...
Summary: I've owned this thing for almost 2 years now and it's still going strong. i use it primarily for video but i still snap a few pics here and there. it does a nice job, not the BEST for pictures but for the most part the pics are clear and sharp (i use the black and white mode a lot). the video mode is where this thing earns its stripes. they come out beautiful, i can take screens from my videos that look better than pics from other cameras.
Summary: Hi!!, I just bought this cam and I really like it, good pics, but anyway I have a problem, when I want to make a video, the cam shows me a message saying that the "NEW memory stick" don't have space, is telling is full, how in the heck could this be true when the memory stick is brand new (2gb), anybody had this problem, please help me with this.....could the cam be damaged???
Summary: Just a Brief: Pro's Great video performance as promised Pretty good pictures Looks sexy of course Wide touch screen looks and works good Cons: Very short battery life only way for connectivity is through the dock (no direct usb/hdmi) Dependant on the Dock Touch screen isn't bad, actually pretty good, but could be better No smile shutter ( I don't care but you might) For some reason sometimes pictures come out blurry poor performance in low light Some thoughts: The HD...
Summary: I HAVEN'T TRY IT YET BECAUSE I'M WAITING FOR MY MEMORY STICK TO BE DELIVERED BUT IS A NICE CAMERA, I LIKE THAT IS A TOUCH SCREEN, NICE, BUT THE INTERNAL MEMORY CAPACIT IS TO SMALL I CAN'T WAIT TO GET MY MEMORY CARD TO TRY IT OUT.
Amazing Camera if you are fine with its Limitations!

Summary: I purchased this camera recently from Amazon as an alternative to the slow in coming Samsung HZ10W and have really been amazed by what it can do! About the size of a deck of cards, the Sony T-500's big selling point to me was the availability of stereo HD (720p) Video in MP4 format, something extremely scarce in any digital camera to date.
Summary: As expected, this Sony Point-shoot has amazing full light High Definition Video. Sunny shots, Beach shots are amazing. Fotos are also very good. Since this is such a High-end Camera, I'll talk about the bad stuff first. Video and Foto quality on low light conditios are low. You can easily see artifacts and low pixelation on indoor shoot like a wedding even with 10 MP and Fine quality HD Video. Also, you cant shoot at standard 480p resolution like your old camcorder.
Summary: Nothing beats the convenience of having 720p HD video and 1080 still picture capability in one small James Bond-like package. I used to carry around a camcorder and a Canon Rebel: not any more. Stores in US don't carry this because they want to sell camcorders and cameras.
