First Look: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T20

1:33 /

Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-T20 is a stylish, solidly built camera with quick performance and pleasing image quality at lower ISO settings.

[ Music ] >> Hello I'm Phil Ryan, senior editor, CNET.com. We are taking a look at the Sony Cyber Shot DSCT20. Like all Sony's T series cameras, it has a little sliding lens cover on the front, you slide it down to turn the camera on and slide it up to turn the camera off. The T20 is a 8.1 mega pixel camera, it's got a three X optical zoom lens and around back it's got a 21/2 inch LCD screen and on the side you've got all the controls for the camera and up top a little playback button, so if you don't to have the lens cover open you can just press the playback button. It will shoot at up to ISO 3200, even at full resolution but in our lab tests we found that it is better to stick with iso-800 and below because the higher ISOs just didn't have very good results. One of the quirky things about this camera we found also is that the flash recycle time is a little slower than we would have really liked, it takes a little while to charge back up and then be able to use the flash again, but other than that we thought it was a really nice camera. We got good results, nice photos at lower ISOs and it's a nice slim design, can fit in most pockets, even a little jacket, inside jacket pocket and it's really stylish. I'm Phil Ryan and this is the Sony DSCT20. ^M00:01:32 [ Music ]
