Sony DSC-T3 Review
Click on the T3 for a 360° QTVR tour
The T3 has sophisticated auto-focus and auto-exposure options to help get the picture right the first time. It allows you to choose from nine settings to match the scene - whether it's twilight, portrait, landscape, snow, beach or even fireworks - so it is easy to shoot high-quality images even in challenging lighting conditions. And due to Sony's Real Imaging Processor™ circuit, the T3 is lightning fast. It shoots bursts of up to four full-resolution images at three frames per second.
The camera is equipped with a Transflective Clear Photo LCD that improves the quality of image display by preventing reflected light from interfering with it. Moreover, the new LCD's higher contrast, brightness and resolution ensure more accurate color reproduction.
To keep a slim profile, the T3 camera's Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens operates internally rather than extending beyond the camera's body and its 3X optical zoom ensures great image quality. Equipped with a 0-4X SmartZoom (at VGA resolution), the camera allows you to focus in on the area of interest of your subject by cropping the image size and thus avoiding image degradation. It also has a Magnifying Glass mode in which subjects appearing on the LCD screen can be magnified up to 3.3 times. This mode allows you to see and capture details that would otherwise be difficult to confirm with the naked eye.
With optional Memory Stick PRO Duo™ cards, the camera captures and plays back high resolution moving images. MPEG-VX Fine mode allows you to record MPEG video with 640x480 pixel resolution at 30 frames per second, up to the capacity of the memory media card being used. With approximately 180 shots per charge of the camera's InfoLithium™ battery, you can snap away without fear of running down the charge.
Whether placed next to a TV or PC, there's now a better place to put your digital camera other than a desk or table drawer. The supplied Cyber-shot Station USB cradle accommodates the DSC-T3 camera for playing back slideshows on a TV or transferring images to your PC while charging the camera's batteries. And when connected to a PictBridge™-compatible printer, such as Sony's PictureStation® DPP-FP30 digital photo printer, printing a specific image is as easy.
