Sony Cyber Shot DSC-T30 review:

Sony Cyber Shot DSC-T30

The Sony Cyber Shot DSC-T30 is speedy. Time from power-up to first shot is a mere 1.8 seconds, and subsequent shots took 1.3 seconds between captures in single-shot mode. With flash turned on, this shot-to-shot time lengthened to 2.4 seconds. Continuous shooting yielded 1.4 frames per second regardless of image size, and shutter lag zips through at 0.4 second.

While the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-T30 amounts to only an incremental improvement over the Cyber Shot DSC-T9--the main difference, other than some style points, is its extended ISO range--it's hard to complain about this fancy-looking snapshot camera.
