The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T200’s photo quality was pretty good for an ultra-compact camera. The camera captures sharp photos with pleasing colors, with generally accurate exposure. A few times I did notice that the camera really blew out the highlights, though. Purple fringing was well-controlled, as was noise. There isn’t much noise since the camera is applying a fair amount of noise reduction, the results of which are visible even at low ISOs. You’ll notice that fine details are smudged, and solid colors (like the sky) appear a bit blotchy.
The camera also has minor issues with vignetting, corner blurriness, and barrel distortion, which seem to be “standard features” on ultra-compact cameras. It has big issues with redeye, but at least there’s a tool in playback mode to get rid of that annoyance.
