PopPhoto have recently reviewed the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10 where they give the camera 3/5 stars and write;
“At .8 of an inch in thickness, the T10 fits nicely into your hands and pocket. The camera has a contemporary look and features a large bar on the front. The bar is more than cosmetic though, and when pushed down, reveals the lens and turns the camera on. The advantage of this is that even in dark locations, you can turn the camera on and off effortlessly without having to search for the small power button located at the top of the camera. At first, I thought this was a strange way to turn on the power, but after using this feature, I really like it and now prefer it to the traditional power button, which on the T10 is small and hard to use…Another surprise for the T10 is how quickly the shutter release worked. In many cameras similar to the T10, one chip is used instead of the more expensive multiple chip designs common in DSLR cameras. The result is typically a shutter lag. In the T10, there is little if any lag. The T10 incorporates a focus assist beam that’s above average in brightness and keeps the quickness of the camera to near daylight levels even when the light isn’t great.”

ComputerActive have recently reviewed the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10 where they give the camera 3/5 stars and write;
“Happily there’s no shutter delay to speak of when capturing the action, although the screen blanks out for just over a second while an image is being written to memory – either to its generous 56MB internal, or optional removable media in the shape of Sony’s Memory Stick Duo.When it comes to image quality, there is some fringing visible between areas of high contrast, though it’s less noticeable than prior generations of Cyber-shots. Image noise also creeps in at ISO320 and above. Colours are more muted than we’ve been led to expect, though there is a ‘Vivid’ option in Program mode if, like us, you prefer greater saturation. Overall Not a clean bill of heath, but if you’re after an inexpensive, no-fuss snapshot from the electronics giant, the Sony Cyber-shot T10 delivers on most counts.”

CNET Australia have recently reviewed the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10 where they rate the camera 7/10 and write;
“During our review period, we took a variety of shots in several locations. In one crowded area, we tested the image stabilisation by taking a variety of shots while holding the camera at arms length above our heads — a scenario in which arm wobbling is unavoidable. The conditions were fairly challenging and while the camera did not always create a perfect picture, the Cyber-shot DSC-T10 still took some good focused shots and reduced the effects of the shakes and movement.”

DPInterface have recently reviewed the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10 where they rate the camera 7.4/10 and conclude;
“The T10 is a very capable point-and-shoot camera with an optical image stabilizer and high sensitivity for flash-free photos. And thankfully too, its flash isn’t powerful at all. This camera is probably designed for the casual shooter who goes to parties and social events, with a compact form and stylish design in mind. But what was Sony thinking? This camera has no manual controls and a mediocre continuous shooting mode. Well, I think I’ve made my point here. The Sony T10 is a tiny camera I’d recommend to all but those who do pixel-peeping, action shooting or want to manipulate many aspects of the camera. The T10 has a very good value but if you want a larger LCD, there’s the T50.”

TrustedReviews have recently reviewed the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10 where they rate the camera 7/10 and conclude;
“The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10 is a lovely little camera, it really is, but unfortunately it stumbles in some key areas. The complete lack of any manual control limits creativity, meaning that this isn’t a camera for an enthusiastic amateur to learn with. The position of the lens also spoils the ergonomics somewhat and anyone with large hands will definitely find it difficult not to get their fingers in the frame. But the biggest problem for the T10 is the Canon Ixus 850 IS – it’s more ergonomically sound, has a far better feature set and is every bit as sleek and stylish as the Sony.”

CamerasUK has recently reviewed the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10 and writes;
“There is nothing especially difficult about the DSC T10. There are quite a few buttons on the back of the camera to get acquainted with, but once you have mastered these you are well on your way to getting to know the camera. Again although there are plenty of options in the menu system it is well laid out and you should soon be able to find your way around.
..The Sony DSC T10 is a high quality, pocket sized digital camera. Images are sharp and with well balanced colours photos has a natural look to them. The build quality is of a good standard and the camera has a stylish design. This is one of the best pocket sized digital cameras around. Recommended.”

ImagingResource has recently reviewed the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10 and writes;
“The Sony DSC-T10’s macro setting performs very well, capturing a minimum area of 1.18 x 0.88 inches (30 x 22 millimeters) in its normal macro mode. Detail and resolution are both very good, and there’s very little softening in the corners from the lens….The DSC-T10 is an excellent performer, beginning with its very quick 1.5 second startup time. Shutter lag at wide angle and telephoto are both excellent, and “prefocusing” the camera by half-pressing and holding down the shutter button before the final exposure results in a blazingly fast shutter response time of only 0.012 second… “

Steve’sDigicams has recently reviewed the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10 and writes;
“Bottom line – Sony has created another awesome “ultra-compact” package with excellent image quality, speedy performance, and loads of useful exposure modes, all wrapped in a very stylish and durable shell. The “paint job” of the white model we tested was very nice, with an appearance similar to a classic car in pearl white. With 7-megapixels of resolution, you’ll be able to create beautiful prints up to poster size. At an MSRP of US$399, it offers an excellent value for a camera in this category, and with the various color choices, this digicam is sure to be very popular with trendy users. “

CNET have reviewed the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10. They rate the camera 7.8 out of 10 (very good) and write;
“Image quality from the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-T10 was pleasing, especially for a pocket camera. Colors look accurate, though a bit flat at times, and noise is kept under control except at the highest ISOs. The camera captured clean, well detailed images at both ISO 80 and ISO 100. Noise crept in at ISO 200, but plenty of detail remained. By ISO 400, we saw enough noise to obscure finer details, such as texture in fabric and separate strands of hair. At ISO 800, there was noticeable detail lost, and off-color speckles and grainy noise was pervasive, though smaller–and possibly even letter-size–prints, should be fine. At ISO 1,000, the noise was only worse, but 4×6 prints, while obviously not perfect, should still be passable.”
