What a great camera! it is so quick to take photos, i have owned nine, maybe ten different digital cameras before, and by far this is the best! it was fairly cheap for the features, and takes photos very quickly, which has been great when I have been out and about or on holiday and needing to take snaps quickly! The battery life I have to admit is not the best, but not the worst i've ever had either. The picture quality is very good, and I regularly use photos from this camera to send off photo cards to friends and family! I am very happy with it, and don't see any reason to upgrade from it for some time! it is not a professional quality camera, but neither is the price! well put together, and i am very happy with it! if you want a cheap good quality camera, but it!
This superb piece of technology is the best camara i have owned. And believe me i have owned a lot!
Allowing you 3x optical zoom and 6x digital zoom, this camera takes crystal clear pictures, and with the right settings, it takes amazing pictures which are hard to believe that have been taken by a non-professional level camera!
The cyber shot technology makes it even easier to have colourful pictures that will look perfect when you upload them onto your facebook account or myspace account. Great for anyone owning websites and takes their own pictures for uploading.
This camera is a great deal if you are looking to take wonderful pictures with a low price for what it gives you. Words cannot explain how good this camera is in terms of crystal clear pictures and the amazing finish.
It feels delicate, but is fairly strong. The navigation system is very easy to use, even for my 12 year old brother!
I also like the quick and easy way of transfering the pictures from the camera to the PC. This is how it should be. Maybe the next best thing would be you not needing to connect it at all!
Battery life of the camera is suberb. Although i do reccomend buying a spare battery as with always, the best situations you always run out of battery or space! So buy the biggest memory card you can get, they are very cheap nowadays, especially if you buy them online. Can get a 2GB card for ten pounds, so it shouldnt be hard to get a 4GB one for fifteen to twenty pounds. And i really say its worth it. But the battery does last long eg, i used mine for three days of continous touring around on my holidays, and then i had to charge it when i got home. I probably would have had to do that if i didnt keep viewing the pictures i took over and over again ;)
Hope this is a helpful review for you fellow buyers.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T27 is something most competitive available in digital camera's market. What really impressed me is the 4 GB internal memory so that one can take photos / videos without any tensions of memory being full. Apart from that if we the weight and size, its the 5.4-ounce, 2.5-inch-by-0.8-inch-by-3.5-inch, it remains easily and firmly pants-pocketable. One can access the frequently used shooting settings via the display. These include resolution, self timer, exposure mode (auto, scene, program, or movie), focus (multi, center, spot, or manual), metering mode (multi, center-weighted, or spot), ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation, macro, and flash. it also tells the current shutter speed, aperture and ISO setting when one prefocus. There's also a live histogram for those, like me, who don't believe the display. Drive mode, white balance, color mode (standard, vivid, natural or sepia), flash compensation, red-eye reduction and SteadyShot require a dip down deeper into the menus. Oddly, the camera lacks manual white balance, but I doubt many will miss it on this camera.
The face-detection autofocus works very well at spotting multiple faces in a scene--the camera will optimize focus and exposure for the face(s)--and one of the bonuses of the touch screen is you can use it to indicate the primary face. I still think that the Spot Focus feature, in which you touch the desired focus point is a faster, better solution, however. The camera also includes Sony's Smile Shutter mode, which pauses shooting until the detected faces crack a smile; I wish it could be liberated from the scene-mode ghetto, though, it would be useful in general Program mode shooting, too.
Overall, the camera's photos look pretty good and clear. As with the They're softer than the previous generation's--notably the T100--and than some of the competition's, due to what looks like more aggressive noise reduction. Still, they show good exposure and automatic white balance. The colors look pleasing and reasonably saturated.
