Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot T5 looks great and has a large, high-resolution LCD. Photo quality seems to have improved over the T7 and the T5 still maintains the excellent movie mode. Despite that, the Sony T5 has a weak flash, close to no manual controls and has a rather limited burst mode.
Pros: Above average battery life, Great LCD outdoor performance, Fast, Photos are less noisy, Excellent movie mode, Overall sharp photos
Summary: Sony's new Cyber-shot DSC-T5 digital camera is ultra slim so it's always with you and always ready to capture great pictures. It incorporates a high resolution 5-megapixel Sony imager with an internal Carl Zeiss 3x optical zoom lens that opens instantly when the camera is activated.
Excerpt: The Cyber-shot
DSC-T5 ($349) is the
