Summary: 7 years ago my son bought this camera, new at a store. I loved it and he gave it to me. Two years ago he saw a used one on ebay for $15 so he bought it thinking that it would be a back up or parts for mine. Both of them went belly up after thousands of pictures. Of course to replace a "lens sensor was $200. Sony does not make them any longer, so back to ebay! I got this one, and it's just like new.
Summary: I love this camera.. I bought one brand new a few years ago and i was very pleased with it. It is very user friendly. The camera takes really quick pictures. I purchased the underwater housing for it and it took excellent pictures while i was hiking in the rain and snow in yosemite.. I also went white-water rafting and jumped in the river in movie mode.. The movie was excellent..
Summary: this is a excellent camera for a beginner or for just ease of point and shoot. perfect for ebayers, will take good close up picture. light weight, easy to carry. buy extra batterys for backup.
Summary: Great features in a convenient shape and size. Easy to miss-place! Get a case to protect it, carry an extra battery and a car charger. Flash takes it's toll on battery life. You can't delete all pictures at once. This is my third T7. I lost the first one, I've abused the second one, but have some great pics and video to show for it. It still works 95% of the time. No real complaints, download to computer is easy. Picture quality improves with familiarity.
