Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300 gets reviewed

 

We briefly got our hands on Sony's DSC-T300 digital camera (along with a bevy of other Cyber-shots) back at PMA earlier this year, but the folks at Digital Photography Review have now come through with a thorough review of the camera which, among ...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300 produces high-quality images and sports a luxuriously large widescreen LCD, but this slick camera's battery life is bad news.

Solid image quality. Sleek design. Large 3.5-inch widescreen LCD. Touch-screen controls. Descriptive menus.

Expensive. Short battery life.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300

 

The Cybershot DSC-T300 is the second generation of touch-screen ultra compacts from electronics colossus Sony. Because it is built around a very small 1/2.3" sensor, Sony has been able to cram a 5x zoom into the slimline body without it ever having...

Small, smart design ; Long zoom for such a slim camera ; Touch-screen interface generally pleasant to use ; Largest possible screen for a camera of its size ; Feature-packed (including DRO and image stabilization) ; Clever focus point selection ; Post...

Noise reduction that reduces image quality at all settings ; Terrible battery life ; Poor use of screen in playback mode ; Over-enthusiastic reds ; Higher ISO settings of very limited use ; Lack of manual white balance (combined with average presets...

Our initial impressions of the T300 were not positive - with the function guide adding delays (but no useful information), and a 'plink' sound effect that screamed 'lifestyle accessory,' rather than 'camera,' every time it was touched (which does...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300 review: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300

 

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300

Fast performance; tons of handy image editing and playback features; zoom rocker is in a much more comfortable position.

Soft, noisy photos.

A great design, fast shooting, and lots of features can't overcome the fact that the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300 simply doesn't take very good pictures.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300 Review

 

Althought the Sony Cyber-shot T300 has a snazzy, slim design and an innovative 3.5-inch touchscreen, the camera's designers might want to go back to the drawing board and improve image quality and overall ease of use. For a camera with as many...

Slim design, Large display, Very fast overall performance

Poor image quality, Confusing touchscreen navigation, Very noisy images at high ISOs, Uneven results with iSCN mode

Sony Cybershot DSC T300 review

 

At the beginning of this year, around the time the CES show in Las Vegas took place, Sony introduced a number of new Cybershot compact cameras, among which the beautifully designed Sony Cybershot DSC-T300. Sony have built a long history around the...

The first acquaintance with the Sony T300 left quite an impression, an impression of a unique and stylishly designed camera. One that makes Sony stand out from the rest of the market. The nice and moreover solid design beams with quality, with on top...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300 Review

 

With a half press the Sony T300 is commendably quick to determine focus and exposure, signaling this has been achieved with an affirmative 'bleep', and follow through with taking the shot at a full press. The screen blanks out momentarily while a shot...

Given that 95% of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300's functions are accessed via its screen, having a larger than average display proves both a boon initially, and, in the final analysis, a necessity. You either love or hate touch screen devices, and, if...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300 Digital Camera - Express Review - The Imaging Resource!

 

The Sony Cyber-shot T-series of digital cameras is all about good looks and ease of use. Typically slim and stylish with minimal external controls, the T-series is sleek and user-friendly, and most importantly, pocketable. The Cyber-shot DSC-T300...

Small, compact size ; Smile Shutter and Face Detection for good, in-focus pictures of kids ; Good selection of useful preset shooting modes ; Touchscreen works well ; Good overall color ; Steady Shot reduces blur ; Manual AF point selection ; Large...

High lens distortion at full wide angle and full telephoto ; Image noise and noise suppression high at ISO 400 and up ; Slightly pinkish Caucasian skin tone, plus some oversaturation of strong blues and reds ; Some blurring in corners at both zoom...

Automatic exposure control, plus a range of preset Scene modes and a handful of creative shooting tools give the Sony T300 enough capabilities without being too complicated. Novices will appreciate the ability to let the camera do all the work, and...

Sony Cyber-Shot T300

 

The Sony Cyber-shot T300 is part of Sony's thin camera range. The 10 megapixel T300 has some features not commonly found on your typical slim camera; among them are a 5X zoom lens and huge 3.5 inch touchscreen LCD. The Cyber-shot T300's higher...

Bigger-than-average 5X stabilized zoom lens ; Above average battery life (especially for a screen this big) ; Very big touchscreen LCD that's usable outdoors ; Functional and settable Face Detection and Smile Shutter modes ; Above average performance...

No manual controls ; Fingerprints on touchscreen are unavoidable ; Tiny zoom controller and no place for fingers on the back ; Touchscreen interface is not too responsive and requires too many presses to navigate; can't change settings quickly ; 10...

Overall, the Sony Cyber-shot T300 has some pretty attractive features for the crowd: a 5X optical zoom lens, equipped with image stabilization, a very big touchscreen display (which you won't find on any other camera at the moment) and considering the...
