Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T99 (Purple)

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T99 is basically the sexier ultracompact version of the company's W350 . It has many of the same features as that model, but switches from a telescoping external lens to an internal lens and adds a 3-inch touch screen....

Good looking; excellent feature set.

Slippery, small body; touch interface is a little laggy.

Sony packs a lot of features into the ultracompact Cyber-shot DSC-T99, but if you don't need or want the touch screen there are better values to be had.

"Nothing wrong with this camera. My favorite yet"

 

My new favorite camera. I have owned Panasonic, Nikon, Kodak and Canon point and shoot cameras. I am not a techy but I enjoy picture taking. Sony has a good one with this camera

I love the Panorama setting. I took some awesome pictures on a recent trip to Seattle. I also took great pictures of the Chicago skyline from a friends window at Trump tower

A little camera, be careful not to drop it
