"The best slim & compact camera on the market"4.5 starson by orion_49
Pros: sleek & compact, 3.5inch touch screen, feature-packed, smile shutter, easy to use, great photo's
Cons: Memory Stick only (Sony technology) which is a tad more expensive then SD
Summary: The Cybershot T200 is slim & compact feature rich camera that takes great pictures on the fly. If you want the best possible picture quality you need to purchase the larger bulkier models like the H-series or Alpha. I didn't find any of the features "gimmicky" in fact the Smile shutter is simply amazing and works perfectly.
The massive 3.5inch wide touch screen is beautiful and functions with ease. You will not miss having all those extra buttons and wheels. The touch screen makes setting up pictures easy and fast and is a vast improvement over the T100.
The lens of the camera is made by Carl Zeiss (the same German company that worked with NASA developing instruments for the HUBBLE telescope) and it produces beautiful photographs. The camera seems to make dull/low-light areas look lively and vivid which I like a lot. I'm sure there will be issues with graininess in certain low-light pictures because this is a compact camera and the flash isn't as powerful as the larger models, but I have yet to take a picture that I think is not satisfactory.
I have never had so much fun with a camera. It's hard to believe so many features are packed inside such a small case; Face detection, Smile shutter, 5x Optical zoom, slide show, video recording with zoom, in-camera editing (red-eye cropping etc.), image stabilization, painting and stamps with the touch screen... The list goes on and on.
BOTTOM LINE: You can't go wrong if you want a feature-packed digital camera that you can carry in your pocket anywhere you go. For Slim & Compact cameras I give the Sony Cybershot T200 a 9/10. If you want a camera that produces the best quality photo's then you need to look at the larger/bulkier H-series / Alpha (for Sony) or Canon/Nikon's comparable.
