Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T200

The Good Bulletproof build; smile-activated shutter; good colours.

The Bad Touchscreen interface; tiny zoom control; weak detail.

The Bottom Line Whether you're in front of or behind this fun family camera, it's bound to raise a grin -- and capture it, with a unique new 'Smile Shutter' mode. The large touchscreen is easy (but slow) to use, the long lens is fast and flexible and images explode with colour, if not detail

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T200

Sony heads uptown, with another brushed metal T-series camera that screams quality and style, from its over-sized lens cover to an enormous 76mm (3-inch) touchscreen that occupies the entire back. Sony also somehow finds room for a 5x non-protruding zoom lens, fronting an 8-megapixel sensor.

The T200 is available now, in silver, black and (rarer) blood red, at around £230.

Strengths
When it comes to build quality, only Canon can rival the sheer solidity of Sony's style cameras. The T200 isn't especially light (186g ready to shoot) or slim (20mm), but everything feels built to last, especially the rock-solid lens cover and the bright, colourful 76mm touchscreen.
