Sony Cybershot T100

Editor's Review

This ultra stylish addition to Sony's Cybershot line features a slim metal body available in a range of color options. The Sony T100 uses the same BIONZ image processor used in Sony's DSLR A100 model, allowing for optimized photo quality with low noise levels and realistic color. A Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar zoom lens provides 5x optical zoom. This camera looks like a worthy upgrade for Cybershot
lovers- it features High Definition Smart shooting and output, Super Steady Shot and High Sensitivity to decrease image blur, Face Detection, and an extra-large LCD. All this in a super-slim and stylish body that is less than half an inch thick!

White spots (Jenn D — 04/26/2008)

I have alot of white spots on NUMEROUS pictures. Already returned the camera once and will have to do it again. It ruins my pictures so I never know when a good picture is being taken.

Small Wonder (Michael J. Sawczak Jr. — 12/05/2007)

Bought it for the small size and was pleased with the outstanding quality of the pics and especially the video. Super fast boot-up when you open up the lens to shoot. At first, being a typical guy, who needs instructions! - I don't need them! - Wrong! The pics were just so-so until I went through the manual and learned exactly how to use the camera properly. Wow - the pics and video are now fantastic! I went to a Keith Urban concert and despite the low and varying lighting typical for a show like that, I wound up with fantastic shots (no flash) and I was blown away by the video quality, looks just like a professional music video! Clear, sharp focus, and it handled the lighting without a problem. Read the instructions - they really help to use the little Sony properly and practice - you won't be sorry. If you do a lot of indoor shots needing a flash - get one of the larger add-on flashes with bounce and you'll have prints like a pro! (the built-in flash is not quite adequate beyond 12-15 foot range)

Great for traveling (Drew Noden — 08/17/2007)

I purchased the T100 for a bicycling trip through Holland and N. Germany, wanting the advantage of 5X optical zoom in a small, light-weight format. During the flight overseas, I found and practiced using the exposure (both presets and manual), image delete, red-eye reduction, white balance, and metering controls. The camera performed very well in all light conditions, and was easy to quickly adjust for different light conditions. There is occasional bleaching in bright light (e.g. sunlight coming through trees or reflecting off of water), but this is true of most digital cameras. The large screen is bright enough for most situations. Print quality is excellent, although be aware that the default format ratio is 6x4.5, and most commercial prints are 6x4, so some cropping will occur unless you reformat on the computer.

Very Compact Camera With Big Camera Type Results (Jon Drake — 07/16/2007)

I've tested other 5X zoom cameras i.e. Olympus, Minox, GE.I found their image quality to be lacking.
Features I found to make the difference in priority order:
. High Quality Image results; photos taken of faces were really clear due to face dectection feature it really works!!
. Compactness ..only 3/4 In. thick (no protruding lens)
.Excellent quality photos in low light situations, the T100 brightens up under low light or dusk conditions.. no flash needed.
Cropping and picture trimming feature.. you can select 8, 5 MP to rerecord photos that have been cropped.
. Optical Image stabilization works very well.
. Red eye option.. set up in advance or correct post photo.
. Movies for me are clear and audio level is good as I have my camera set on highest level.
- Macro shots setting 1 or setting 2; one is super closer than the other.. great photo results.
. Photo transfer from Camera to Computer takes place very fast.. saving your battery.
notes: I carry an extra battery although I find I get 300+ photos from charged battery.
I bought a Sony leather case for the camera; fits snug there is room at the top of the case to grasp the camera for quick required shots. I also use a lanyard around my neck to steady the camera when I take photos 3X zoom or 5X zoom.
I set up my T100 as follows:
- Set camera to 8MP
- Face Detection ON
- Rec mode normal
- Oev set to 0 position
- Red Eye Reduction 'on'
Single Image
AF Illuminator 'Auto'
AF mode set to single
- Digital zoom set to 'precision'
- ISO Auto
-Metering Mode Multi
- Focus 'spot'
-White Bal Auto
- Steady Shot Shooting
-Flash level -0-
Why others might not have liked the T100
1. They didn't bother to learn how to properly use the camera... i.e. used incorrect settings for their photos i.e. lighting, distances.
2. Fuzzy photos due to hand movement, pressed record button too quickly not allowing the camera to focus properly.

Hope this helps.

Terrible quality (Fabio — 07/09/2007)

I bought this camera because my friend was a T10 and takes awesome pictures, very sharp in any condition. T100 should be even better right? Wrong!!! Awful grainy pictures, I’m very disappointed, the quality is so bad that I wonder if is nothing broken with my camera.
Bad Camera!!

A friend (Dan Weaver — 06/12/2007)

I love my sony camera. I took it on a cruise about a week ago and I loved having it by my side. Really really clear pictures along with a great zoom and many features. Sharp looking and very slim so it can fit in your pocket or backpack. If you are looking for a camera by this one and you will not be let down.

The best camera for undercover store pictures (sandra — 06/10/2007)

This camera takes extra ordinary pictures - both inside and out. I make a living of shooting undercover pictures in stores and I have tried MANY MANY cameras before. This is by far the best. The pictures are sharp and crisp and it is almost impossible to mess them up. The steady shot really works. Outdoor pictures also turn out super. The pix can be blown-up without getting grainy like on all the other cameras I tried. The only thing I am not keen on using is the included software for the download of the pictures. It edits the pictures really poorly (way too much red and yellow!)and I went happily back to my Nikon Picture Project for editing my pix. My main client oversees was so impressed with the quality of the pictures, that he has bought one himself. I use a red one and in the store it looks like I am talking on the phone so nobody pays attention. :)

Don't fall for it like I did. (F.LECER — 05/16/2007)

Grainy pictures, not sharp enough, horrible indoor pictures regardless of settings. Colors blend in, my cell phone's picture kind of quality. I had Olympus 3300 and quality of the pictures was like 3 times better - at least. Such a disappointment. looks great, but that's it. BTW their sony card "instant approval", and sony card came to me after the sale was over?!?!

As Borat would say, "Nice!" (XMEN — 04/28/2007)

I've had it for two weeks and it's everything it intended to be. Having a 5x, high iso camera with anti-shake, face detection technology ---- in this form factor ... well you can't get it anywhere else ... not yet anyways, until the other cameras catch up a year from now.

Easy to use - great pictures (Peg Lorenzon — 04/10/2007)

I love the 3 inch LCD display, the face recogniton feature and the feel of the camera. It is not only stylish and fun, it is so easy to use. The menu and home buttons walk you through all settings and choices easily - I would say even intuitively. I had family members taking the camera out of my hand and taking pictures with no direction at all....and their pictures came out great. Speaking of detail is great...gotta love the 8.1 megapixels! I have a 35 mm which I find too big and cumbersome for vacations. I bought this Sony for an upcoming cruise...I wanted a small compact camera I could slip into my pocket. I have a feeling my 35 mm may be collecting dust as this camera does way more than I expected. I have printed 8x10s - the clarity and colors are true to fading of colors or blurring at this size. I got the red sassy!!! Buy will love it!!!
