Sony CyberShot DSC-T900 Review
10 October 2009
Conclusion: For what it is, the $379 DSC-T900 is a solid camera. It has great looks, a terrific touch screen, and takes high-def clips and fine photos with enough light. However, it performs pretty poorly in low light without the flash.
Summary: There’s no doubting that £300 can get you a camera with better image quality than the T900, but then this isn’t a camera the enthusiast is realistically going to consider. Having said this, I can think of far worse cameras under the ‘lifestyle’ umbrella, and if it’s just for slipping in your shirt...
Pros: HD video recording, style, effective face detection
Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T900 isn't just a camera -- it's a thing of beauty in both a technical and a visual sense, although the square corners arguably detract from its aesthetic appeal ever so slightly.
Pros: Great movie quality; good stills quality; attractive styling and finish; responsive touchscreen controls.
Cons: Sliding lens cover is tricky to open; pricey.
Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot T900 is a very slim digital camera with a very big touchscreen. The camera is one of the slimmest cameras in the market yet it has a nice 4X zoom lens with optical image stabilization.
Pros: Usable image quality till ISO 400, Very thin design with 4X zoom lens and optical image stabilization, Huge touchscreen LCD with good visibility, Decently quick (but not blazing fast) performance, Elaborate portrait features: adult/child face detection, smile shutter, redeye removal, 720p HD movi...
Cons: Some distortion and edge softness, No manual controls, Measly 11 MB of internal memory (its predecessor had 4 GB memory, now that’s gone for unspecified reasons), Paltry continuous shooting frame rate like other 12 MP cameras, Bad ergonomics; little place to hold the camera, LCD attracts fingerpr...
Excerpt: The Sony T900 comes with a 12.1MP sensor with built-in 4x optical zoom lens that's equivalent to 35-140mm in 35mm terms. Picking up the compact for the first time, it feels slim and well-balanced in the hand.
Summary: Near identical to its T500 and T90 predecessors, in terms of screen size and resolution respectively, there is little about the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T900 that feels fresh – at least for anyone with prior knowledge of the range.
Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T900 has some interesting features, including a touch screen and a 4x zoom lens, but its image quality is only average. It's a very slim camera that's easy to carry to parties and clubs, and it's suitable for taking happy snaps that will eventually end up on a social media...
Pros: 4x zoom, very slim body, touch screen is easy to use
Cons: Pictures were noisy, noticeable chromatic aberration, some barrel roll, poor shutter button
