Conclusion: Our initial impressions of the T300 were not positive - with the function guide adding delays (but no useful information), and a 'plink' sound effect that screamed 'lifestyle accessory,' rather than 'camera,' every time it was touched (which does nothing to solidify the 'cameraness...
Pros: Small, smart design, Long zoom for such a slim camera, Touch-screen interface generally pleasant to use, Largest possible screen for a camera of its size, Feature-packed (including DRO and image stabilization), Clever focus point selection, Post processing options well implemented
Cons: Noise reduction that reduces image quality at all settings, Terrible battery life, Poor use of screen in playback mode, Over-enthusiastic reds, Higher ISO settings of very limited use, Lack of manual white balance (combined with average presets and inaccurate preview), Uninformative and frustrati...
Conclusion: Sony CyberShot DSC-T300 digital camera The first acquaintance with the Sony T300 left quite an impression, an impression of a unique and stylishly designed camera. One that makes Sony stand out from the rest of the market.
Conclusion: Overall, the Sony Cyber-shot T300 has some pretty attractive features for the crowd: a 5X optical zoom lens, equipped with image stabilization, a very big touchscreen display (which you won't find on any other camera at the moment) and considering the size of that LCD, above average battery life.

Summary: Althought the Sony Cyber-shot T300 has a snazzy, slim design and an innovative 3.5-inch touchscreen, the camera's designers might want to go back to the drawing board and improve image quality and overall ease of use.
Excerpt: The Sony T300 has a 10.1Mp sensor with a built-in 5x optical zoom lens that's equivalent to 33-165mm on a 35mm camera. The back of the Sony T300 is taken up entirely by the impressive 3.5in sized monitor and there are only four operational buttons on the whole camera.
Summary: An attractive package for those looking for a stylish and fairly simple compact. It can be slow at times and there are some image quality issues, but the pictures are fine for small print sizes and many will appreciate the aesthetics and futuristic menu system.
