Although the power button on the T2 is rather flat and hard to press, it doesn't really matter--you generally turn it on by sliding the faceplate or pressing the review button on the back of the camera.

The new hinge design allows the T2's sliding lens cover to sit flush with the body, in contrast to the overlapping design used by the rest of the T series. The slide has a very nice, tactile feel.

You access most of the T2's options directly via the touch screen; only the review and Scrap Book buttons and zoom switch have dedicated controls. However, the Review and Scrap Book buttons are small and flat, making them quite difficult to press.

Like most point-and-shoot cameras, the T2's photo quality starts degrading at about ISO 400, and most of the detail pretty much disappears by ISO 800.

Moderate, but still quite visible barrel distortion appears in the T2's wide-angle shots, and there's also some pincushioning at the narrow end. Though not atypical for a snapshot camera, the small zoom range doesn't really warrant it. (Grid lines added in Photoshop.)

There's some cyan and purple fringing in the T2's photos, but it's pretty infrequent, and only visible in large prints or 1:1 viewing.

Though the colors aren't terribly accurate, the T2 does render pleasing, nicely saturated tones (These flowers aren't quite so bright).
