Gadget of the Week

Sony DSC-T200 camera

 

Pros

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

 

 

Cons

Battery life less than the similar T100 due to larger screen

No optical viewfinder

Not cheap

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

 

 

Cost: c £225 inc. VAT

 

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.
