I have had this camera for over 2 years and find it compact enough to carry around in my handbag everyday. The touch screen technology makes viewing photos very easy, you can easily zoom in and out of pictures and remove red eye. There are many very good features including smile shutter, this is a feature which waits until the person is smiling before the picture is taken, you can also set the level of the smile. My favourite setting is the face recognition, this puts a box around the persons face and ensures the face is in focus for the pictures. I have on occasions struggled to easily find some of the setting including switching to black and white. The memory card has to be placed in an small white adaptor to be used in the universal laptop and printer slots but I have found when buying a new memory card this is included. the battery life on the camera is very good and it can take 150+ photos from full charge however due to the sliding front of the camera I have found it does turn on very easily in my bag or pocket, for this reason i recommend using a case with the camera. Sony batteries cannot be charged with many of the universal chargers on the market which is a bit of a pain a new charger from Sony costs over £40 The quality of the photo's is superb and they are very easily transferable to laptop/PC.. The camera has 8.1 mega pixels which is significantly less than modern camera but I can't say I can see the difference. I have the camera in the light pink colour but have found over recent months it is easily scratched or dented. As I bought this camera a while back I can't remember the exact price f although it was in excess of £200, I have been very happy with the camera. Unfortunately recently the motor has become jammed but I feel I have had good use of the camera and I am now on the look out for something new and better! I look forward to reading the reviews before I buy!
Wow! What a camera! This is such an amazing camera that has lots of features. It is 12.1 megapixel so takes really high quality pictures but the good thing about this camera is that it also records videos and it does so in HD format. I use this camera every weekend and people always ask me what camera it is. The zoom on it goes really far and does so in great quality. The flash is extra bright so works well in dark conditions too. It also has added features such as smile detection so it takes the photo when I smile is made. It comes with all the necessary equipment to upload your photos and videos onto your computer and it is very straight forward to use. My only problem with this camera occurs when you are filming things with lots of lights sometimes this causes the focus to go out. I often attend nightclubs and film various djs and have noticed this during this time.
I purchased this camera in Hong Kong and it's one of the best cameras I've had so far! It's small and compact and very stylish. It's touch screen makes it very unique and impressive. The design of this camera is very complex with high technology, but Sony makes it very easy to use. It has a sliding front plate, the zoom, power and the playback function are all on the top of the camera. On the bottom there are a space for memory card, battery and a small tripod space. It has a Carl Zeiss lense with 4x optical zoom. 12 Megapixel. The large display screen is 3.5 inch which is touch screen and it also comes with a stylus(the pen it comes with). The negative should be pointed here, which is that if you don't use the pen you leave lots of finer marks on the screen, and it can be quite annoying to keep wiping the finger marks. The camera has an anti blur technology which actually works, and provides a good quality picture. The battery life is also not that great. On holiday I did have to make sure the battery was on charge constantly, as I was left disappointed once visiting Disney land  I've had the camera for nearly a year and the Sony sign is disappearing from the camera which is quite annoying as I do look after my camera. But from that I do recommend you buy the camera, it has to be said this camera makes a status, and I guess that's why it's a bit more expensive than normal digital cameras.

Tiny little professional. That's what I call Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T900. It's perfectly aware what is expected of it, and does it with aplomb and alacrety. It is impressive and impressive all the way. It's not just like that billions world over think of Sony first and then any body else while choosing a camera and prepaid pay for it. THE DESIGN: The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC T900, is an elegant, stylish, ultra compact digital camera with almost all the latest of technologies tucked inside it. Boasting of class with metal body , sliding front plate and folded optics. The wrist strap wounds up from the right to behave as a thumbrest. Just the power and shutter buttons right on top. The zoom ring loops the shutter release and a switch behind the ring to toggle between capturing movies and stills. Playback control is at the top of the screen and the battery, memory Stick compartment, a tripod mount, multi-out dock all are at the bottom. The USB/AV cable connector is also here. Just slide down the metal lens wrap and shoot, take care of your finger not coming in the way of your lens and object. HIGHS: Lets be explicit: 12.1 megapixel sensor 35-140 mm equivalent 4x zoom lens Large 3.5 inch tough sensitive rear screen Super SteadyShot optical image stabilization Face and Smile Detection Technology ISO 3200 Intelligent scene recognition 1280x720 pixel 720p HD movie recording HDMI output Color picks: Silver (to my mind the sexiest), Black, Red and Bronze Current retail: Hovering around £369 THE LOWS: Short battery life Question mark on the picture quality, just OK The touch screen. GLIMPSE OF TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION: Size: 3.9" (W)x2.3" (H)x0.6" (D) Weight (batter/media included): 5.2 oz LCD: 3.5" LCD with 921 dots resolution Lens: 4x (zoom), f3.5-4.6 (aperture) 35-140mm (35mm equivalent), Carl Zeiss as in most of Sony. File Format support (still/vedio): JPEG/MPEG-4 Battery Life: Rated at 200 shots. TOUCH SCREEN: Sony Cyber Shot DSC T900's has an excellent high contras Xtra Fine display. T900 seems to collect dirt specially from fingerprints more often. So constant wiping of fingerprints is annoying. Also there is a possible question mark on Touch Screen's responsiveness. Best, use the stylus (Paint Pen as dubbed by Sony) which is included. PERFORMANCE: The Cyber Shot DSC T900 incorporates, like its predecessor, it's own version of intelligent auto mode which is very useful in the sense that you just aim at the object and shoot, the sophistcated system analyses the scene on its own and shooses the correct settings for the exposuer. The optical image stabilization provided for 4x zoom works perfectly with out any hiccups. T900 double anti-blurr technology provides pretty good Optical SteadyShot the high sensitivity maximizing at a respaectable ISO 3200. Cyber Shot DSC T900 goes up from 80 to upto 3200 but as typical of all dSLRs the grace falls off apreciably above ISO400. Sometimes the reds are too red but on the whole color and exposer is perfect and a treat to the eye. But gives a grain or two even at ISO80 when images are view in full size. 921k dot resolution wide screen LCD provides excellent utilization for framing and reviewing not only stills but vedios also. A 4GB Memory Stick Pro or Duo will give an extra hour of footage. The smart T900's screen displays the image before your lens at 4:3 ratio. The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T900 is an extremely compact, attractive to say the least and fast snapshot camera albeit with questionable battery life, touchscreen and the quality of image hardly justifies the price tag attched to it. But then it's more of 'status' camera endowed with fashionable and great design which ofcourse has its own price. This may put off some one who is staunch techie but customers knows better. No doubt you can capture a precious moment real fast. A REAL NOTE OF CAUTION: Since you have decied in favor of Sony Cyber-Shot DSC T900 please use with maximum care, the spares are too damn expensive.
