Sony DSC-T33 Review
Click on the T33 for a 360° QTVR tour
With a depth of just one-half inch, the new Cyber-shot T33 packs a range of powerful features into Sony's second thinnest model to date (the Cyber-shot T7 is even thinner.) It sports a large 2.5-inch LCD viewfinder, occupying about two-thirds of the back of the camera, so friends and family can gather round and enjoy images the moment they are captured.
The T33 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 T33 is lightning fast. It shoots bursts of up to four full-resolution images at three frames per second. The T33 also comes equipped with Sony's anti-reflective Clear Photo LCD screen, which significantly reduces unwanted glare in brightly-lit environments and delivers vivid color reproduction. The camera's large 2.5" screen is optimized for easy viewing and sharing of images with friends, even at wide angles - whenever, wherever.
Ten pre-set picture-taking modes also make it easier to get the perfect shot, without having to make any adjustments. Select "Magnifying Glass" for macro shooting up to 1 cm from your object or "High Speed Shutter" to catch fast-moving action like your mom's tennis match.
Sony's Real Imaging Processor™ circuitry, in the Cyber-shot T33 is lighting fast, so it can shoot full-resolution images at one-second intervals. And with approximately 180 shots per charge of the camera's InfoLithium™ battery, you can snap away to your heart's content without fear of running down the power.
With this new camera, you not only get the still image but the video too. With an optional Memory Stick PRO Duo™ media card, shooting high-quality video is simple. MPEG-VX fine mode lets you record motion video with audio at 640x480 pixel resolution at 30 frames per second, up to the capacity of a compatible media card. A 1-gigabyte Sony Memory Stick card can hold up to 12 minutes of VGA-quality 640 x 480 MPEG video and 384, 5-megapixel JPEG Fine images.
Once you have captured the perfect pictures and MPEG videos, don't let them sit in your camera or PC. Share them with your family and friends. Connect the T33 to a Sony DPP-FP50 digital photo printer and view your favorite photos as a slideshow on your television or turn them into postcards, calendars and much more.
