ImagingResource 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.
“The Sony DSC-T9’s images are slightly soft overall, escaping any strong over-sharpening or edge enhancement on the camera’s part. (Edge enhancement creates the illusion of sharpness by enhancing colors and tones right at the edge of a rapid transition in color or tone.)
… the Cybershot T9 delivers good picture quality and a great feature set in a rugged, super-compact all-metal body. The 6.0-megapixel CCD is an nice feature in a camera this small, and the large LCD monitor is quite impressive as well. The T9 showed good image quality, with good color, and high resolution. Its image sharpness and noise levels aren’t quite up to the level of the best full-sized 6.0-megapixel cameras out there, but they’re very good for a subcompact model. Relative to competing full-sized digicams, the Sony T9 does have rather limited low-light capability and marginal flash power, but that’s to be expected in a camera of this size. The T9’s flexible exposure modes and features give the camera the versatility to handle most common shooting situations with aplomb. Overall, the Sony Cybershot T9 is an excellent option for busy consumers looking for a tiny digital camera that performs very well as a point-and-shoot.”
