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. I'm not going to complain much about red-eye since not much can be done with most cameras of this class but the soft edges in photos have to go.
Pros: Above average battery life, Great LCD outdoor performance, Fast, Photos are less noisy, Excellent movie mode, Overall sharp photos

Excerpt: The Cyber-shot
DSC-T5 ($349) is the
latest addition to Sony's line of ultra thin cameras.
The T5 takes styling cues from the original DSC-T1
(and the more recent DSC-T7 as well), with its unique
slide-down lens cover. Other features on the T5 are
typical of what you'll find in this class: the 5 Megapixel
CCD, 2.5" LCD, point-and-shoot operation, and
VGA movie mode. Unfortunately, some not-so-good things
also come along with this design, and I'll cover them
Pros: Good photo quality (though see issue below), Ultra-thin, stylish metal body comes in four colors, Large 2.5" LCD is very usable in bright outdoor light (though see issues below), Robust performance, AF-assist lamp; good low light focusing, Very good movie modes, Live histogram in record mode, USB 2.0 High Speed supported
Cons: Images are on the soft and fuzzy side, Weak flash, Redeye, LCD hard to see in low light, Sliding lens cover makes it easy to accidentally turn camera on/off, No optical viewfinder, Poorly-placed microphone, Expensive memory card format, Software bundle isn't great
Summary: Although the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 features improvements over its T7 sibling, as well as much better value, its image quality still doesn't match the camera's other attributes
Pros: Sleek, sexy design, Easy to use, Large and clear LCD, Solid snapshot feature set, High-quality movie mode, Improved flash coverage, Built-in tripod socket, Decent battery life for a small cell, Comes in four colours
Cons: Mediocre image quality, High visual noise levels above ISO 100
Summary: A Sony Cyber-shot szériájának új, 5 megapixeles tagja, a DSC-T5 először külsejével nyeri el rokonszenvünket, majd könnyű kezelhetőségével és gazdag kézi beállítási lehetőségeivel a kezdőket és a tapasztaltabbakat is lekenyerezi.
