August 2nd, 2005


SAN DIEGO, July 31, 2005 — Why not spice up the color and activity of fall with Sony’s latest “always with you, always ready” compact camera that easily slips in your pocket or smallest bag. The new Cyber-shot® DSC-T5 digital camera is ultra slim, yet delivers great pictures.

Great value and performance in a slim package

Like other cameras in Sony’s T Series, this new model combines Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar® optics with 5.1 megapixel resolution, a 3x optical zoom lens, a 2.5” Clear Photo LCD screen, 32 MB of internal memory for storage and easy transfer to an optional Memory Stick® media card*, and increased battery life compared to previous T Series models, with up to 240 shots per charge.

The T5 has a vertical design: It features a lightweight, aluminum body available in four autumnal colors – red, champagne gold, silver and black – with a sliding matte silver lens cover.

“This is the perfect ‘next’ camera for anyone who doesn’t want to miss a moment, whether out on the town or at family gatherings,” said James Neal, director of digital imaging products at Sony Electronics “It’s the most affordable model in our T series and a great value given its enhanced performance.”
