Gadget Detective on
Gadget of the Week
Sony DSC-T200 camera
High quality images thanks to the 8.1 MegaPixel resolution sensor
5 x optical zoom
Excellent build quality, all metal construction
Super SteadyShot technology to reduce the risk of blurring
Large 3.5-inch wide touch screen
Touch screen controls most functions and allows changing point of focus
Face Detection which automatically tracks and focuses on faces in the picture works well
Novel smile detection technology can fire the shutter when someone smiles!
Available in a choice of silver or black finish
Can output still images to a HD screen in full 1080
Battery life less than the similar T100 due to larger screen
No optical viewfinder
Some of the controls are a tad more fiddly than on a larger camera
Lens is in the top corner of the camera so you have to be careful not to get your fingers in the way
No case supplied
HD cable is an optional extra

Star Rating: 9 Stars Excellent, high quality, very pocketable camera with very few compromises. Also consider the similar, though cheaper, T100 with non touch screen, but longer battery life and physical controls.
