LCD wears off after a year. But it's still a great camera.

Summary: I bought this camera when it launched. Including all the accessories (extra battery, memory sticks, carrying case, tripod,underwater protector,...), I would say I had invested 600+ bucks for everything. If I knew Sony would release T9 with super steady shot in a short time, I might think differently. T7 did a great job while shooting outdoors or when plenty of light is available. However, it was almost impossible to take indoor pictures or night shots without a tripod.
Summary: I've been using the T7 for 6 months now. It's a nice camera, great size and nice features however I've been having focus issues when taking pictures in low light, or using the flash. My previous camera, Canon IXUS400, seemed to be better in low light and when using the flash. With the T7, I've tried manual settings however I've not been able to improve the pictures. If anyone has some suggestions, I'd appreciate it. I'm giving the T7 3 stars.
Summary: Well. I have been using camera since Xmas - about a month. Everything works great. The picture quality is comparable to T1 if not better. The size is definitely a big plus. However, I would recommend buying a T1 instead of T7 for 2 reasons. 1. Charger: This is the dumbest thing Sony ever did. To charge the camara, you have to take the battery out of the camara and put it in the charger. This may not sound like a big chore, but like many mp3 players before iPod...
I got what I expected I suppose - cool but disappointing

Summary: $500, and I expected great performance as well as the latest gadgetry. Plus side: Small, easy menus, light, quick docking, good performance in bright light outdoors Down side: Sliding cover turns on too easily accidentally and already poor battery is flat when you want to use it. Flash doesn't carry but 5ft which is a problem because though the camera has a good quality Carl Zeiss lens, it is very small and the max apertures are not great which means in practice that the...
Summary: Yeah, like I said... New model... great flash about 9ft efective. Same Price... DSC T9 ... and has Image Stabiliser... OK, so your thinking of buying this camera... well, its understandable, its a beautifull camera, has tons of features and it will make you the envy of every other digital camera holder... BUT what's to happen when you print your photos? They come out sub par. I have a SD10 from Canon, wich is an older model and takes better pictures then this one.
Summary: This isn't a cheap camera so, in this day and age, I think it was fair to expect a lot. For size, ease of use and screen quality, it's hard to beat and these three strengths seduced me into upgrading my old bulkier Cybershoot. Hindsight is a wonderful thing and I've been disappointed with the quality of photos. Once again, the Cybershoot series have paid far too little attention to shutter speed.
Summary: I purchased this camera purely for its size. It's so small you can take it with you anywhere unlike many other bulky cameras. I often use it for work and the magnifying glass mode is superb but that's where it all ends. Although this camera has settings for night, snow, sports, red eye reduction etc they just don't seem to work, the flash is also weak.
Summary: I thought this was a top camera at first but after a few weeks with it am not so convinced. 1) Am getting a lot of red eye which I didn't get on my old P72 - camera shop says it's down to the position of the flash. 2) Battery life - about 1 hour 20. 3) Sliding lens cover - you have to open this even when you want to view pics/ download them from the 'playback' setting. It's very easy to get your finger on the lens.
