Sony Cyber Shot DSC-T30 review

 

Sony Cyber Shot DSC-T30 Sony's T series has been a staple of the company's camera line ever since it was introduced. With sleek silver (and recently black) bodies, sliding lens covers that stretch boldly across the camera front, and big LCD screens...

Attractive, functional design; optical image stabilization; solid image quality; 58MB of internal memory.

Slow f/3.5 maximum aperture; spotty red-eye reduction.

Pocket-friendly and stylish, the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-T30 continues the T-series tradition of ease of use and image quality.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T30 Digital Camera - Full Review - The Imaging Resource!

 

Sony's Cyber-shot T-series of digital cameras have proven popular in the market thanks to their slim, compact bodies and ease of use while still allowing a fair degree of control over photos. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T30 builds on that heritage, as an...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T30 is now the eighth in the T-series (though not all from this line made it to the US market), with similar overall specs to its predecessors. The camera's thin profile is clean and understated, with smooth panels and very few...

Is the DSC-T30 the ultimate ultra-compact? Find out in our review

Stylish, ultra-thin metal body; comes in black and silver ; Optical image stabilizer ; Very good photo quality (though see issues below); low noise levels through ISO 400 ; Snappy performance ; Huge LCD display; good outdoor / low light visibility ;...

Redeye ; Above average purple fringing; some corner softness ; No manual controls; custom white balance and long shutter speed modes needed ; Burst mode could be better ; Annoying sliding lens cover ; Flimsy cover over memory card / battery compartment...

If you want an ultra-compact camera that offers style, performance, image stabilization, and a huge LCD display then the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T30 is for you. It's not for people who want manual controls or those who shoot under unusual lighting -- but...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T30 Digital Camera Review

 

The 7.2-megapixel T30, announced in April 2006, is part of Sony's line of ultra-compact point-and-shoot digital cameras. At just under an inch thick, it offers a host of trendy features. It has an optical image stabilization system, 3-inch LCD screen,...

The T30 takes a different approach to lens design. While most cameras have telescoping lenses that come out of the camera body when in use, the T30's lens stays in the body. The lens cover is different, too, in the form of a large panel that covers...

Sony Cybershot DSC-T30 Review

 

It is clear that Sony has been improving its T-series of ultra-compact digital cameras, but so has every other manufacturer. Unfortunately, these improvements are not enough to make the Sony Cybershot DSC-T30 catch up with the competition. While fast...

Stabilized ultra-compact lens, Accurate color and exposure, Good image noise until ISO 200, Quite fast and responsive, Good LCD visibility, Great battery-life

Noticeable optical distortion, High chromatic aberrations, Visible corner softness, Slow focus in low-light, Some vignetting, Red eye problems

Sony Cyber-Shot T30

 

It's the all new Sony Cyber-shot T30. This little camera packs 7 megapixels of resolution, a large 3 inch LCD, ISO 1000 high sensitivity and a 75% battery life increase over its predecessor. The Cyber-shot T30 appeared to be a big hit when it was...

3x internal lens with optical image stabilization ; Strong flash when using high ISO ; Excellent battery life ; Large high-resolution 3 inch LCD which is both sharp and visible outdoors/indoors ; 1 cm magnifying glass mode; now available at a touch of...

Looks ugly in front (in my opinion); lacks any textured grip and clear plastic layer covering the entire camera back can be slippery ; Slow lens ; No manual controls ; Slow and limited continuous shooting ; Lacking extremely fast performance that some...

While not the perfect ultra-compact camera, the Sony Cyber-shot T30 is fairly close. It has 7 megapixels packed with an internal 3x optical zoom lens and optical image stabilization - the lens is quite slow though.
