Sony Cyber Shot DSC-T1: worth the price?
September 30, 2004
| || | OK, I've been saving up
for the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-T1
for some time. I'm just about there, but I don't know if it's a good idea to blow $500 on this camera. Any advice?
| | The DSC-T1
is certainly a very popular camera, thanks to its large LCD, its compact design, and a marketing blitz by Sony.
But before you pull out your wallet, here are a few things to keep in mind:
- On our tests, the image quality was merely average.
- User reviews have been mixed.
- There are a slew of new ultracompacts on the way, including the replacement for the T1, the DSC-T3.
