Summary: The T700 model earns extra points as a "photo album in your pocket." It has all the features of the T77 unit plus 4GB of internal memory that can store nearly 1,000 full-resolution or 40,000 VGA-quality photos; a 3.5-inch, wide touch panel Xtra Fine LCD screen for photo-like viewing (210...
Summary: By Allison Johnson and David Rasnake Touch screen cameras certainly are nothing new at this point. But for everyone except jaded camera reviewers, it seems that the novelty of being able to tap your way through settings changes on a huge screen hasn’t worn off.
Pros: Possibly the most stylish camera on the market, Huge internal memory is easy to access with supplied software, Auto focus speed among the best available from a point-and-shoot, Auto options galore: face detection, smile detection, blink detection, Touch screen idea is still neat after several gen...
Cons: Menus are dense, confusing, and sometimes redundant, Terrible fringing issues in boundary areas can ruin shots, Erratic metering and white balance, Noise beyond ISO 200 hasn't improved much over older T cameras, Average flash performance, battery life
Summary: This camera is a surprise. We took one look at it and thought: “Party fashion accessory” and expected nothing from it. However, behind the eye-catching, feminine appearance there lurks a decent camera.

Summary: The DSC-T700 is a well-rounded compact camera that can also moonlight as a digital photo album. It might be a little pricey for a 10.1-megapixel camera, but its excellent playback functionality is arguably worth the extra dosh.
Pros: 4GB inbuilt memory, excellent touch-screen LCD display, stylish design, improves on its predecessor in all areas
Cons: Expensive for a point-and-shoot unit, some minor imaging issues
Excerpt: This is one classy looking camera. It just is. With a super sleek brushed metal finish, slim dimensions, a 3.5-inch touch-screen LCD that devours the entire back of its body and an impressive list of features to boot, the Cyber-shot DSC-T700 is everything a style-conscious happy snap lover could...
