The ultra-compact Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T7 offers a 5.1 megapixel resolution, a completely internal 3X Carl Zeiss zoom and a large 2.5-inch monitor.
While the DSC-T7 has the same technical characteristics as the DSC-T5, with this model Sony engineers have miniaturized the camera even more.
The thinness and compactness of the design come at a price, however: places to hold the camera are few, and fingers with no resting place easily gravitate towards the lens, getting in the way of the image. The T7 is a camera that requires a bit of time to get used to.
With a body size that is so thin that it could almost be fitted into a credit card holder, the T7 still provides a Carl Zeiss zoom with a useful range and is able to produce high resolution images. In addition it offers a variety of scene modes and a program mode that gives the user a fair bit of creative control, surprizing for such a compact camera.
Sony’s DSC-T7 should please those that appreciate the miniaturization afforded by digital cameras, and it deserves to find a home in purses and briefcases, making it possible for owners to capture images at a moment’s notice.
