Pros Easy to use, touch screen controls, takes great pictures, takes great video, plays them directly to the TV, plays a musical slideshow on the TV
Cons only 3x optical zoom
Summary This camera has absolutely blown me away. It is amazing. I've been using an old Canon for the last 8 years. It was good but this camera is so far above it it's not funny. I've used it for one day and I absolutely love it. The best thing is the huge 3" LCD screen on the back where all the controls are done by touching the LCD screen. My wife was able to use it without any coaching from me. That is a testament that it is easy to use. I'll try it on my mom tomorrow. That will be the ultimate test.
The video mode is incredible. It can shoot 16:9 wide screen video into MPeg2 files and then play them directly to the TV with the adapter cable. I'm not sure if I'm going to need my camcorder any more.
The only shortcoming I can see is that it only does a 3x optical zoom. But that's pretty standard for this kind of camera.

Pros Easy to use, touchscreen, one can hold the camera without smudging the screen (like on the T200)
Cons None found thus far
Summary I vascillated between the T70 and T200 for days online, but after handling both of them in person, I found that the T70 was much lighter and easier to hold - the T200 was way too heavy and too difficult to hold without smudging the 3.5" LCD screen. The T70 has just the right amount of LCD, but with some space to put your finger on the side. The trade-off is with the zoom and 3.5" LCD - not a deal breaker for sure. I highly recommend the T70 for those people that go out with their friends and want to take pics!

Pros This camera has everything from wide angle to full HD. Excellent picture quality and the touch screen is very responsive. Snaps pics very fast...power on off speed is satisfactory. Very slick ofcourse
Cons no cons so far...excellent piece by sony!
Summary 100% recommendation. just got this couple of days ago. this camera is a beauty. not only it looks good, but it takes damn good pics in full HD or in 16:9 wide angle. you can adjust the megapixel ratio which is standard in many cameras. touch screen is top notch. try to use the pen they gave you caz it seems to get dirty..but a light cotton cloth can clean it up and its jus like new. the picture quality is outstanding....def. worth the money!!!
Pros size, style, options
Cons battery life, ease of use,
Summary You MUST have basic knowledge how to use the camera, I bought it at circuit city. Extremely stylish and size is perfect for the bar, vacations, etc. It is smaller than my iPhone. I recommend this camera to anyone who is looking for price, style, quality, options all wrapped into one! One of the most confident electronic purchases I have ever made!
Pros Touch Screen, Light, Easy to use, On board software
Cons None what so ever!
Summary Within 5 minutes I had this entire camera figured out. I was really impressed by the ability to download music from my computer onto the camera for the slideshow. That was, for me at least, impressive. I recommend this camera to anyone. A great buy!
