"Very good point and shoot camera."4.5 starson by mcrostiesl
Pros: Very good camera, Good quality photos, Fast.
Cons: Rather small screen but good enough.
Summary: I had recently bought a Sony Cybershot T20 thinking it would be a pretty good camera. It turned out so-so, the photos were inconsistant and the face detection sometimes worked. So I spent a lot of time looking for a camera, it was difficult because the reviews written by the people were very inconsistant one would give it a 9 the other a 4 so it was pretty hard. I found out that the only person you can trust is yourself so I went and bought the Sony T100 and the Canon 850 IS because those were the two top cameras that Best Buy had at the moment. My friend lent me his SD800 and the SD750 and I had previously bought the Sony T20. Honestly they all gave good results as in if i compared the best photos each camera shot they were all at par. I personally discarted the SD 800 and the 750 because they are only 7 megapixels very good cameras but I wanted one with 8. As I mentioned before the Sony T20 was very inconsistant, so that was also discarded. The Sony T100 is probably the coolest camera I've seen, it has a really nice screen and it is very thin. Although the menu system was only O.K. it did its function. The optical zoom was very nice, helping in a lot of situations. As I started taking photos I realized that the problem of the Sony T20 was present here. In AUTO mode the pictures didn't come out that good. I mean some came out really good but in certain light conditions. I then tested the Canon SD850 and after 20 photos or so knew that I was going to keep the camera. It was hard to decide seeing that the looks ont the Sony T100 are much better than the Canon SD850 (at least in my opinion) but at the end the most important thing is the quality of the picture and the consistancy of the quality in the photo that is why I stayed with the Canon, which I really recomend.
I hope that helps you, but everyone thinks different. My personal advice is just to test them both either in the store or where ever you get a chance, because you are the one that is buying the camera.
P.S. I think that the score should have been 8.2 for the Canon SD850 IS and 8.0 for the Sony T100.
