ComputerActive reviews the Sony CyberShot T77 and writes;
“Overall the T77’s images were better than expected – warm, colourful and reasonably detailed – even if the position of the lens means stray fingertips can occasionally creep into shot, and lens flare was problematic on brighter days. “
Rating: ★★★☆☆

CNET reviews the Sony CyberShot T77 and writes;
“The good: Attractive design; useful feature set; fast performance.The bad: Nearly too small; touch screen not for everyone; soft photos. The bottom line: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T77 is a fun, fast ultracompact, but it’s almost too tiny for its own good. “
Rating: ★★★☆☆

PhotographyBlog reviews the Sony CyberShot T77 and writes;
“So if you need a camera that’s as unobtrusive as possible, whilst still providing better image quality than your average mobile phone, and aren’t put off by mainly touch screen operation, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T77 is worth investigating.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Sony CyberShot T77 and writes;
“Image quality was very good for an ultra-compact 10-megapixel camera. When shooting outdoors, the T77 produced pleasing images in various conditions, whether the day was nice and sunny or overcast and snowy. “

ImagingResource reviews the Sony CyberShot T77 and writes;
“T77’s images are pleasing, and we were especially impressed with how it handled our extreme sunlight test…Ultimately, it’s the great experience of shooting with the T77 that earns it a Dave’s Picks.”

“The Cyber-shot DSC-T77 is one of the slimmest touchscreen cameras we have ever seen. It’s amazing how Sony squeezed so many features into such a tiny profile and still managed to deliver impressive pictures..”
Rating: ★★★★☆

GoodGearGuide reviews the Sony CyberShot T77 and writes;
“An adequate but not particularly impressive compact, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T77 wins points for style and size but it has a few image quality issues and a somewhat irritating touch-screen interface.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

PCMag reviews the Sony CyberShot T77 and writes;
” Sony’s handsome T77 offers good speed, solid imagery, and exciting in-camera editing tools, all of which add up to a very good buy…”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CameraLabs reviews the Sony CyberShot T77 and writes;
“T77 is a slim, stylish and gadget-packed compact camera. Its touch-screen means it’s almost bereft of buttons or switches, the smile-shutter really can recognise cheery faces and wait for them before taking a photo, and at only 15mm thick with a smart sliding front cover, it’ll slip discretely into most pockets, while drawing admiring glances when in use.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

InfoSync reviews the Sony CyberShot T77 and writes;
“we surmised that the image quality would be left on the backburner. For a 10MP camera with a lower-tier imager, you can expect decent pictures, but nothing to match the DSC-T77’s suave looks.”
Rating: ★★½☆☆

Pocket-Lint reviews the Sony CyberShot T77 and writes;
“The Sony Cyber-shot T77 looks very nice and is well made but the problems, as we have seen, make the camera a bit of a handful despite its svelte lines and this has cost it dear in terms of points.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

DCRP reviews the Sony CyberShot T77 and writes;
“Overall, the photo quality on the DSC-T77 was good, but not great. Exposures were typically accurate, though I noticed some serious highlight clipping in two (admittedly torturous) photos.”
Rating: N/A

PCAuthority reviews the Sony CyberShot T77 and writes;
“We were particularly impressed by the DSC-T77’s ability to take decent shots without flash, under poor lighting conditions (ordinary 60 watt household light bulbs)”
Rating: ★★★★☆ reviews the Sony CyberShot T77 and writes;
“the Sony DSC T77 does not quite match up to the style and looks when it comes to picture quality. You will still be able to take good snapshots with the camera, but you will also find situations where it will struggle compared to the best pocket cameras. “
Rating: ★★★★☆ reviews the Sony CyberShot T77 and writes;
“At the lowest ISO sensitivity of 80, the colors were smooth and details were well-rendered…. the camera performed well and delivered good image quality. If you’re feeling rich, top up S$100 more for the Cyber-shot DSC-T700 which has a generous 4GB of internal memory.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

TrustedReviews reviews the Sony CyberShot T77 and writes;
“The Sony Cyber-shot T77 is quite expensive, but compared to other luxury compacts it’s really not too bad. Its big selling point is its ultra-slim size and pocket-friendly weight, but it is a well designed and solidly made camera that will look good anywhere.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Sony CyberShot T77 Press Release

SAN DIEGO , Aug. 7, 2008 – Sony is making the grade with the introduction of the stylish Cyber-shot® DSC-T700 and DSC-T77 digital cameras with “intelligent” shooting functions.

The 10-megapixel T77 camera is Sony’s thinnest model at less than 5/8 of an inch with a 3-inch, 16 x 9 touch panel LCD screen. It features updated intelligent scene recognition technology, Smile Shutter™ and face detection technologies with child and adult priority, as well as high sensitivity shooting (up to ISO 3200), eleven scene modes, and in-camera image management.

The T700 model earns extra points as a “photo album in your pocket.” It has all the features of the T77 unit plus 4GB of internal memory that can store nearly 1,000 full-resolution or 40,000 VGA-quality photos; a 3.5-inch, wide touch panel Xtra Fine LCD™ screen for photo-like viewing (210 pixel-per-inch resolution) with high contrast and wide-angle viewing; and a thin profile (slightly more than 5/8 of an inch) so it can easily slip into a pocket or purse.

“Sony is taking the lead in developing “intelligent” cameras so that taking great pictures is an automatic function and not a complicated process,” said Phil Lubell, director of digital camera marketing at Sony Electronics. “This is part of our effort to enhance the camera experience for customers by offering new functionality.”
