Hey! You should know that this product has been discontinued. Here are our current recommended cameras in the Ultra Compact Digital Cameras category.
Sony Cybershot T700
The Sony T700 is a thin, ultracompact camera that also serves as a digital photo album. Over a year ago, Sony introduced the G1, a camera with a big hard drive and even bigger, bulkier body. It was pretty awful. Now, they've made some modifications and created a similar camera that is quite thin, eliminating one of the biggest issues with the G1. The Sony Cybershot T700 has 4GB of internal memory to hold photos and a large 3.5-inch LCD.. It's also got a pretty nice 10 megapixel sensor for taking photos, too.

- 4GB storage for internal photo album
- Face-detection and Smile Shutter modes
- 3.5-inch LCD display

Sony Cybershot T700 Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

I read many reviews before deciding to purchase the T-700. I even tested the camera out at Best Buy to make sure it was the camera I wanted to get. It took excellent pictures and the features were easily accessible. It took me no time to figure this thing out. So, then I ordered it from Dell because I got a killer deal on it. The camera arrived, I charged the battery, and then I turned the camera on. My living room, dining room, and kitchen lights were all on and the first thing I noticed was how pixilated the lcd screen was. I snapped a few photos anyways to see how it would look, which turned out real crisp. I took the camera outdoors and the lcd screen looked absolutely crystal clear. I decided to go back inside and change the settings around to see if any of it would help with the indoor pixilation. None of it did. I then tested the video mode indoors too and it looked awful. Dell sent me a replacement, but it still has that problem. I haven't really read that being a problem for other people, but i've had it on two sony t-700's. If I were to strictly take photos outdoors during the day, it would be perfect.
So, I got to thinking maybe it has to do with the lighting in my house. I went to my cousins and in her kitchen the lcd was clear. Then I moved to other areas of her house and I had the pixilation(grainy) problem. So then I pointed directly at her ceiling fan light in the same room and the lcd was clear again.
Even though the photos come out fine, the pixilation bugs me because I want a clear view of the picture I am about to take and want clear video. My mom has sony cam that is about 3 years old and hers has always remained clear.

I bought Sony T77 a week before, it is slim, many functions, attractive but picture wise it was not worthy. So decided to go for more better one and bought Sony T700 yesterday.
Sony T700 and Sont T77, the only difference is screen size and internal memory(4 GB), picture quality is not good, pic are blurred, not clear. I don't think the price of the camera and pic quality match. I was expecting good quality pic with that sort of money in SONY compact digital.

Touch screen was great. I liked how it gives you instructions on what each function is. The pictures were a different story. The clarity of the picture just was not there. This is my first venture into point-and-shoot, so maybe my expectations were too high. Most of the shots I took were grainy and cloudy. I returned the camera and got a Canon, which I'll keep.

I own several digital cameras, including one Olympus D600. This Sony T700 camera is great. It has a touch screen which is easy to read and use. This eliminates almost all buttons and allows for the camera to be carried easily. There are great options contained within the menus and has a 4GB hard drive. It takes GREAT pictures and video. Recommended. Only downside is the battery life which can be solved by buying an additional NP-FD1 batery.
