Sony Cyber-Shot T33

Digital Photography Interface
21 March 2006
  • Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot T33 is a stylish and thin camera which is fast and has lots of scene modes but has no manual controls. Photo quality on the T33 is overall below average. While the T33 is pocketable and is great for everyday outdoor shots, indoor photo shooting leaves some things to be decided.
  • Pros: New stylish design, Large and clear 2.5 inch LCD, Many of scene modes, Excellent movie mode, USB 2.0
  • Cons: No manual controls, Weak flash, Flimsy battery/Memory Stick slot door, Lots of red-eye, Soft photos and blown out highlights, Barrel distortion, Not so good indoor shooting performance

Digital Camera Review

  • Excerpt: The Sony DSC-T33 continues the Sony Cybershot T line of popular thin styled Point and Shoot digital cameras.  The Sony T33 sports a 5.1 MegaPixel image capture, 3x optical zoom and 2x digital (for 6x digital zoom overall), a gorgeous 2.5-inch Clear Photo LCD screen for easy outdoor viewing, Sony Real Imaging Processor for fast shutter speeds and 640 x 480 resolution 30 frame per second video capture all crammed into a 17.3 millimeter thin body that's smaller and lighter...

  • Excerpt: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T33 ($450) is the follow-up to the Cyber-shot DSC-T1, which was one of the most popular cameras of 2004. (Okay, there was a DSC-T3 too, but it was never sold here in the U.S.) The T33 doesn't change very much from the T1, aside from its refined body design and new "hybrid" LCD. The features from the old T1 that have carried over to the T33 include a 3X optical zoom lens, 5.1 Megapixel CCD, 2.5" LCD, and point-and-shoot operation.
  • Pros: Good photo quality (though see issue below), Ultra-thin, stylish metal body, Huge 2.5" LCD is very usable in bright outdoor light (though see issues below), Robust performance, AF-assist lamp; good low light focusing, First-rate movie mode, Live histogram in record mode, USB 2.0 High Speed supported
  • Cons: Images are on the soft and fuzzy side, Weak flash, Redeye, USB, video out ports, as well as tripod mount only found on the camera dock, LCD hard to see in low light, No optical viewfinder, Flimsy plastic door over MS/battery compartment, Watch your fingers, as the lens/flash/mic are easy to block, Expensive memory card format

Sony DSC T33

Cameras
8 August 2014
  • Conclusion: The DSC T33 is marginally the most expensive five megapixel, ultra compact digital camera available at the time of writing. I must confess though to being a little disappointed by the results. In terms of features and style it is up there with the best of them, but to my mind the picture quality means that other models offer better value. Take a look at the Canon IXUS 50 and the cheaper Konica Minolta Dimage X50 .
  • Pros: Slim design makes it easy to carry around, Good build quality, Short shutter lag and recycle times
  • Cons: Difficult to use the camera with a tripod, Redeye is a problem with indoor portrait shots

  • Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T33 can take pleasing photos, but its most attractive aspects are its 2.5' LCD and ultrathin body.
  • Pros: Ultra–slim, large LCD, quick to power up
  • Cons: Awkward positioning of the power button and microphone, colour balance a little off

  • Summary: From a design standpoint the T33’s elegance might have you captivated. But once you recompose yourself and examine the range of features, it looks less compelling. Since the recently discontinued Cyber-shot T3 can still be picked up for much less and is basically the same camera, why pay more on aesthetic grounds? This camera is awarded 4 stars and compared unfavourably with the T3 yet the T3 is awarded only 3 stars.

PhotoReview
1 April 2005
  • Summary: Available in blue, gold or white Sony's DSC-T33 Cyber-shot is an update to the T3 model and is slightly larger, but lighter than its predecessor. The front panel of the brushed aluminium shell is flat, with no grips or protrusions. The lens sits in the top right corner, where it may be obscured by the fingers of the left hand when the camera is in use. . .
