DesignTechnica has reviewed the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T9, a very slim 6 megapixel (CCD) point-and-shoot digital camera with 3x optical zoom and 2.5″ LCD screen.
I really liked the looks of the DSC-T9 and it takes solid but not D-SLR level photos yet that’s an unreasonable expectation for a $400 point-and-shoot camera. Only a few competitors like the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9 and the Konica Minolta DiMage X1 have image stabilization which really make this camera stand apart from the pack. Alas as readers of the site know KM is leaving the camera business so there are even fewer competitors. Although a bit expensive this point-and-shoot camera is definitely an Editor’s Choice.
Pros: compact & attractive, optical image stabilisation, very high-quality LCD, Fast response
Cons: now viewfinder, few manual adjustments, supplied picture package software is pathetic
