Sony Cyber-Shot T900
Digital Photography Interface
23 September 2013
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. Thereâ€™s a huge 3.5 inch touchscreen with good visibility on the back â€“ unfortunately, the cameraâ€™s ergonomics suffer, partly due to that huge screen; thereâ€™s barely any space for your hands to hold the camera at the back, and youâ€™ll also have to watch out not...
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 movie mode recording with stereo sound and optical zoom, Fancy playback features
Cons: Some distortion and edge softness, No manual controls, Measly 11 MB of internal memory (its predecessor had 4 GB memory, now thatâ€™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 fingerprints, Touchscreen interface needs hard presses and too many presses to reach certain settings, Unintuitive and confusing â€œnormal menuâ€� and â€œhome menuâ€� system
Summary: Sony has its style-cam range down to a T. This flagship super-snapper delivers everything the designer ordered: slick 12MP photos, sharp HD movies, finger-friendly functionality and the best screen on the market.
Excerpt: The Sony T900 boasts a 12MP sensor, HD video recording and a range of impressive features. But with the lifestyle compact market already fairly saturated, does it bring anything new to the table?...
Excerpt: So you want to be a super model? Eat only lettuce, workout daily, and visit the plastic surgeon regularly. If your goal is to be a super model digicam, slim yourself down to practically nothing, add some bling, a dash of cool technology, and you’re there. The super-slim Sony T series has always been the Heidi Klum of cameras, with knockout style and a shape that can’t be beat.
Pros: Stylish12MP digicam; 4x zoom; 3.5-inch touchscreen; HD video
Cons: Might be too small for some; high noise; short battery life
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. This slimline feel has been achieved by fitting a 3.5in touch screen to the rear, which controls the majority of the camera's menus and options.
Excerpt: Resembling less a digital camera than a minimalist work of art in its dormant state, the brushed metal faceplate of Sony's latest slender compact in the DSC-T900 very much echoes the earlier T500 model's look and feel. That's both in terms of larger than average 3.5-inch touch screen for the iPhone generation round the back, and stereo microphones nestling left of the internally squirreled Carl Zeiss zoom lens at the front.
Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T900 is a good, fast snapshot camera that's also very attractive and extremely compact. Its battery life is a little short and some will find the photo quality unworthy of the price tag. You're paying for the great design more than for great photos.
Pros: Fast performance, Excellent design, LCD, Optical zoom works in movie mode
Cons: Short battery life, Photo quality merely OK for the money, Touchscreen not for everyone
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
