Excerpt: I owned a lot of camera, this Sony Cybershot T1 is the best I have ever owned. The other generations of this camera have touchscreen which are inconvenience and useless. I prefer the physical button instead of touchscreen. Two down sides of this camera: one is the flash unit, which never got any good pictures with it on. Another problem is the user interface.
Excerpt: When my husband bought me this camera it was not cheap. I loved this camera, really loved it. I loved it enough that I routinely recommended Sony to anyone looking for a new, smallish digital camera. I even went with Sony when I bought a larger digital camera based on this cameras performance. Then I began having problems with the image on the lcd screen as well as the printed image. I researched this.
Excerpt: This camera was broken when I received it. I would have immediately returned it to Best Buy where it came from, but right inside the box it says "STOP! If you have any problems or concerns with this product, do not return to purchase store, contact sony." So I contacted Sony and had the hardest time trying to get them to fix the camera or just send me a new one. They were blaming the problem on me because it was "mechanical.
Excerpt: I purchased the Sony Cybershot T1 camera in Feb. 2004 off of Ebay, for about $500. At the time, that was a good deal. Pushing 6 years later, I still use it every day, and with a new baby girl, I mean every day! I have graduated a couple times to larger memory stick cards (I'm now at 4GB, which is PLENTY big) and I have no complaints with the picture quality. Now that cameras are getting so much cheaper, I MIGHT start looking for a new one soon, but the fact remains...
Summary: I have an underwater box for this camera. My original camera stopped working and this exact replacement was just what I needed. Now I can continue to take under water photos without putting out a huge amount of cash. I'm very happy..
Excerpt: The Sony T1 is not very good, colourless, flat, bland images, with no vibrance, too easy to shake and it blurs. Disappointing considering the reviews, I expected sooooo much more. Small and compact but awkward and poor quality!
Summary: Was exactly what I expected. I knew this product has been discontinued. I have been using this model for a long time and did not want to change to another expensive model. I would recommend this model to others, but there are more recent and newer types to choose from.
