Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T500 review

 

When Sony announced the 10-megapixel Cyber-shot DSC-T500 in August 2008, 720p HD video recording in point-and-shoot cameras wasn't widespread. Now, even though it's popular, the T500 does have some of the best video quality I've seen in an ultracompact...

Good video quality; attractive design; stereo mic; 5x optical zoom with image stabilization for photos and video; includes multioutput dock.

Mediocre photo quality; poor battery life; comparatively expensive.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T500 is a great pocket video camera despite being merely passable at snapshots.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T500

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T500 delivers great images and HD video, along with a terrific touch-screen experience.

Great image quality. Touch-screen menus are quick and responsive. Big 3.5-inch screen. High-def video recording. Includes a camera docking station with HDMI out.

Poor battery performance. HD video is very susceptible to shakes and is a bit choppy. Significant shutter lag. A bit pricey.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T500 Review

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T500 is a slim and stylish ultra-compact digital camera featuring a metal body, sliding front plate and folded optics. Highlights of the T500 include a 10 megapixel sensor, 33-165mm equivalent 5x zoom lens, large 3.5-inch...

Given that its suggested list price is below £300, Sony's metal-build Cyber-shot T500 feels fairly priced if not quite an outright bargain buy now you can pick up a 10 megapixel alternative for as little as £100. Still, it is a small object of desire...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T500 Review

 

When Sony announced that it was building a small camera with huge video capability for power users, we were interested to find out exactly what the finished product would be like. While the T models have always been snappy performers, it's always been...

Slim, stylish form factor, Best video capture around in a digicam, Easy-to-use full auto camera, Speedy performance

Noise, loss of color render highest ISOs useless, AF flakes out on ocassion, Some cheap looking plastics used in construction, Needs a more powerful battery

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T500

 

Touch-screen camera that records 720p video footage.

Captures good detail, HD video recording, HDMI included on dock

Noisy images even at low sensitivities, touch-screen interface is very fiddly

Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-T500 is a decent compact camera with some nifty features such as 720p video recording. However, its touch-screen interface is irritating and its images are noisier than normal.

With HD video recording and stereo sound, is the T500 a slimmer alternative to a camcorder?

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T500 digital camera

 

If full touchscreen is your thing then you have a growing number of cameras available to you. The Cyber-shot T500 from Sony offers a full touch interface, but can it deliver your photos too? We got about 100 shots from the camera before being met with...

Macro mode works well, dock great for viewing on TV, audio quality on video, build quality

Battery life poor, low light image noise, dock doesn’t charge without additional adapter, no memory card, expensive

We got about 100 shots from the camera before being met with the first flat battery. At times you’ll find you get less, especially if you are taking pictures, showing them off, or standing waiting for the right moment with the camera on. Filming full...
