"Best Ultracompact on the Market!!!"5.0 starson by dentalrep
Pros: 5x zoom, Size, 8mp, high ISO, Super SteadyShot, cradle options, improved processing engine, and face detection.
Cons: Cradle not available yet
Summary: I am so happy that I went with this camera. Sony has finally decided to step up and come out with an ultracompact that is better than Canon. I was set on buying the Canon SD800IS but then came across this beauty.
It is not in stores yet but can be purchased online from Circuit City. Sony also has an optional docking station that should be coming out soon which will be nice.
This camera has a 5x zoom which is incredible for its size. The new processing engine is noticeably faster and comes from their SLR camera line. Face detection and the 9 point auto focus and big pluses as well.
From Sony: "With Super SteadyShot® optical image stabilization and high sensitivity (ISO 3200), the DSC-T100 compensates for shaky hands, minimizes blur, brightens images and allows flash-free shooting to preserve the mood. And the Clear RAW™ noise reduction will take care of the picture noise that can ruin low-light shots."
Pictures look great and I have a trip to Hawaii coming up and I look forward to using this camera and comparing my pictures to my Sony H5.
There are also multiple colors available but not all colors can be purchased right now since it has just been released.Updated
I forgot to mention that the battery life is great and the 3 inch screen is amazing!Updated
I just wanted to let everyone know that the camera is still working great. I am still very happy with the camera and the battery life has exceeded my expectations.Updated
I just wanted to comment on how great the docking station has been. I do miss the ability to use an USB connection but the docking station has worked flawlessly.
