Sony DSC-T700


The T700 model earns extra points as a "photo album in your pocket." It has all the features of the T77 unit plus 4GB of internal memory that can store nearly 1,000 full-resolution or 40,000 VGA-quality photos; a 3.5-inch, wide touch panel Xtra Fine...

Both cameras feature updated intelligent scene recognition technology that can now select up to eight different scene modes, including macro, portrait and landscape modes

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T700


The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T700 ($399.99 direct) screams styleits minimalist silhouette, brushed-metal body, and high-resolution 3.5-inch LCD add up to a fashion-conscious point-and-shoot camera. Not only does the camera looks great, so do its pictures,...

Striking design. Terrific image quality. Quick, responsive touch-screen menus. Many in-camera editing options. Has a 3.5-inch high-resolution display. 4GB onboard storage

Expensive. Poor battery performance. Ergonomics take some getting used to. Annoying shutter lag. Flash seems too strong in full auto shooting

The Sony T700 has one of the most impressive LCDs we've ever seenand it takes great images, too. But short battery life, shutter lag, and some ergonomic issues drag it down a bit.

Cyber-shot DSC-T700


Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-T700 is the beautiful new addition to the company's pocket-sized T line. Armed with a high-resolution 3.5" LCD touch screen, 4x optical zoom, and an impressive 4GB of internal memory, the T700 costs $399.99, and is an impressive...

Immaculate design ; High resolution LCD ; Good performance in brightly lit conditions

Sub-par low light scores ; Unresponsive and imprecise touch screen ; High price

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T700 is an example of a rather average camera, with a few sexy new features, wrapped up in a beautiful package with a high price tag. It has an beautiful high resolution 3.5-inch touch screen, a stylish, svelte body, and an...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T700 (Silver)


Think about how often you show digital photos to others, either on your mobile phone or camera's LCD. Now think about how miserable the experience is trying to find an image on that camera or phone, how frequently you don't have the photo you really...

Attractive design; large, useful feature set; nice 3.5-inch LCD; fast performance.

Touch screen not for everyone; soft images.

Part smart-looking snapshot camera, part 4GB portable digital photo album, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T700 will satisfy those who like showing off their pictures as much as they like taking them.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T700 Review


The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T700 has a stylish minimalist design that is complemented by the use of high-quality materials, mostly metals. As a consequence of this, the camera weighs considerably more than you would guess from its dimensions alone. Still,...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T700 Digital Camera - First Shots - The Imaging Resource!


The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T700 is closely related to the DSC-T77 alongside which it was announced. The T77 is a replacement for last year's DSC-T70 model, and both new cameras feature a higher-res ten megapixel sensor which is coupled to a more powerful...

The Cyber-shot T700 includes Sony's face detection technology, which is capable of detecting eight faces simultaneously, and is linked not only to the camera's autoexposure and autofocus systems as in most similar systems - but also to white balance...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T700 Review


The only thing standing in the way of naming the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T700 one of our favorite cameras of the year may be the images it produces.

Possibly the most stylish camera on the market ; Huge internal memory is easy to access with supplied software ; Auto focus speed among the best available from a point-and-shoot ; Auto options galore: face detection, smile detection, blink detection ;...

Menus are dense, confusing, and sometimes redundant ; Terrible fringing issues in boundary areas can ruin shots ; Erratic metering and white balance ; Noise beyond ISO 200 hasn't improved much over older T cameras ; Average flash performance, battery...

With all of its strengths on the style front and some solid performance marks besides, we're tempted to let the T700 off the hook for its generally lackluster showing in our image quality analysis. Certainly, if you're not hoping for more than a camera...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T700


Sony's T line of digital point-and-shoot cameras is known for being slim, sexy and hitting your pocketbook hard. The DSC-T700 is no exception. Currently available for $399.99 in a variety of colors, the camera is only 0.66 inches (16 mm) deep, and...

While the camera is indisputably gorgeous, there was obviously some preference given to form over function, as the lens is located on the top right, where it can easily get covered with a finger. Additionally, with a screen that takes up the entire...
