After much research, I went for this camera because of its large screen, small body and integrated zoom. The camera is rock solid, it's is clearly built to last, and finished with brushed aluminium - which looks great and doesn't tend to scratch. The screen is bright and clear, and it's simple to access and navigate the various menus. Picture quality is fantastic - what really strikes me is who brilliantly colours are reproduced - brightly and true to their original state. The flash works well too, not making things over exposed, although the red eye function never seems to eliminate those red eyes for me. Battery life is good, I've snapped 100 photos with flash and red eye in a night and still had plenty of power left. I particularly like the flick of the shutter to turn the camera on and off, making point and shoot stuff to capture the moment very easy. Video is also handled very well and is of excellent quality, so perfect if you're uploading to Youtube or similar. My only problem with the camera is that sometimes, in a warm environment after lots of use, the autofocus continually moves, not actually focussing on anything, rendering the camera pretty useless until it cools down!
***** Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T20****
With the vast amounts of cameras on the market it can be really hard to pick the right one for you.Do you want one that is 6,7 or 8 mega pixels(apparently this doesn't matter it is to do with iso?)Does the camera have face detection?What sort of other functions do you need? etc
So after narrowing it down to about 3 different makes/models i ended up with this one because it was Sony and most importantly(in my friends opinion anyway) it came in a pretty pink colour.
This comes in three colours-pink,silver and black.It is quite small,not the thinnest camera on the market but it does fit into my pocket easily.
The battery life on this camera is amazing.I got my camera in a bundle with two batteries (lithium)but when i go on holiday for a week i tend to only use the one and i don't need to charge it.To give you an idea about how much i use my camera on holiday lets just say i am snap happy,my camera never leaves my hand which brings me to the next point
Obviously this depends on the size of card you put in the camera and the settings.The internal memory takes about 20 pictures and this is on the highest setting (8mp).This camera takes pro-duo memory sticks(longer than sd cards) and if i remember correctly the biggest one you are allowed to stick in is 2gb,which is a lot of photos!!!
**Using the camera**
To pick the setting on the camera you want to use press the home button which is at the bottom right of the display.You then have four options which are
1.Auto adjustment -What it says when the camera is on this just point and click!!!When you are in this mode you can pick whether or not you want flash,macro mode and you can set the timer as well.
2.Scene Selection-This one gives you more choice-do you want to take a soft snap,shoot portraits etc
3.Program Auto-Not sure what i have this set up to do but its good for night shots!!!
4.Movie Mode-Take movies on this and play them back with sound.Has normal features like zoom and is great for concerts etc as the sound quality is amazing.
Mine came in a bundle and to be honest i don't know what they all do.I can plug the camera into the wall to charge,I have a charger for just the battery,theres usb cables to plug it into the computer and i can plug it into the tv.
This camera is pretty much amazing!!!!
Wow, generally speaking, i am really attracted by its stylish design, that day when i was in the mall to look for a good digital camera for myself, i can not decide which brand should i buy, so i walk around the large digital shop for two hours in order to hunt a digital camera which can attract me the first sight i see it. Yeah, i succeed, i was firmly attracted by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T20/P, first i was impressed by its fashionable color-pink, my favourite color, then i walk straight to the counter to have a look at it, 8.1 mega pixels high resolution, the assistant let me experience the camera, super clear photography snap, fantasic cyber shot funtion. It is famous brand that produce by Japan, it is really expensive, but i think its design, function and quality valued the price, i buy it in the end although i feel heartache.
