Sony Cybershot DSC-T200 Digital Camera Review

The Sony Cybershot DSC-T200 has a 3.5 inch touch sensitive LCD (0.5 more than DSC-T70), a feature that not many cameras have yet. This is the reason why you can’t notice any buttons on the back. Slim and lightweight as Sony T-series was before, DSC-T200 with the touch screen makes shooting even more comfortable (it’s a huge screen by the way: 3.5 inch) for anyone willing to get rapid photos in vacations by caring a camera in a pocket (you can also choose between Red, Black and Silver).

Here’s a list of the many features this camera posses: 8 megapixels, 5x optical zoom, face detection system, HD output, Super SteadyShot optical image stabilization and High Sensitivity, Wide Zoom Display (automatically expands standard 4:3 images to 16:9). Unlike some competitive systems, Sony Face Detection makes skin tones look more natural and reduces red-eye with pre-strobe flash. Also, there’s a new Smile Shutter Mode that helps you capture more smiles by shooting automatically when your subject laughs, smiles, even grins after you focused.

This fashionable camera may be expensive, and, besides point-and-shoot, it also has a Program mode that makes it possible to perform a few adjustments. The only 4 buttons of the camera are used for turning the camera on and off, zooming, image review and taking the picture. The images are kind of soft and the colors very vibrant. Almost forgot: the macro mode allows taking picture as close as 1cm – this is very good while other cameras have a limit of 3-5cm.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
