    Sony Cybershot DSC-T2 Compact Digital Camera - Performance

    (Page 4 of 4 )

    Performance and Image Quality

    For the past couple of years, Sony's point-and-shoot digital cameras have excelled in the performance department. Sony's Bionz processor really does a good job of processing information quickly and efficiently. The Sony Cybershot DSC-T2 is another speedy performer from Sony.

    According to CNet, the Sony DSC-T2 takes less than 2 seconds to power up and get ready for its first shot. Typical shot-to-shot times averaged about 1.4 seconds between shots with the flash off. With flash, this figure rose to 2.5 seconds, which is still very respectable. The shutter lag was ample at 0.4 seconds in ideal lighting and 1.2 seconds in dimly lit areas. In burst mode, the Sony DSC-T2 managed a respectable 2 frames per second.

    Image quality is equally good. CNet reports that photos show good exposure and white balance settings. This is a good thing, because the T2 only has automatic white balance setting and no manual controls for white balance. Colors look vivid and clear, and image noise is kept under control up to ISO 200 where images start to show a hint of noise. The T2 is capable of ISO levels up to 3200, although at this level images are basically useless.

    The only flaw that has shown up in photos taken with the Sony DSC-T2 is a minor purple fringing in some photos when zoomed in (see photo). This is quite common in point-and-shoot cameras, so this should not be a deal breaker for the this camera.

    Final Thought

    Overall, the Sony Cybershot DSC-T2 is another great point-and-shoot camera from Sony, although it doesn't really separate itself from the competition in any particular way -- except for the 4 GB of built-in memory. The built-in memory may be a great convenience to those people who don't already have a Sony memory stick, but for most people I think that it won't be a very appealing feature. I think that the majority of users would rather be able to swap out memory cards (or sticks) as needed. I wouldn't mind some built-in memory if you had the option to use an external memory source, but you don't get that option with the T2 (unless the internal memory is full).

    The Sony Cybershot DSC-T2 is available at an MSRP of $350.
