PICTURE OF LIFE.....
Sony’s latest digital compact is even smaller than the last one. Following in the footsteps of the T3 and T5, the DSC-T7 promises great photographs from an ultra thin body, but can it really achieve what it promises? Asks stuart miles.
The camera is, without a doubt, compact. It measures just 9.2 x 6.0 x 1.5cm. Even loaded with a battery and a Memory Stick Duo card it weight in at a mere 134g.
Like the T3, the biggest single element to the camera is the screen, and considering the dimensions above, it’s amazing Sony has managed to put a 2.5in, 230,000-colour screen on the back. The screen takes up most of the back of the unit and while this means that you have plenty of chance to see the photographic subject, it’s not without problems
