The ultra-slim and stylish Cyber-shot DSC-T50 is the current top-of-the-line model in Sony's
T-series line. It's equipped with a 7-megapixel Sony CCD imager, an internal Carl Zeiss
Vario Tessar 3x optical zoom lens, a large 3.0-inch Touchpanel TFT LCD display, VX Fine
movie mode, and 56MB of internal memory. This camera shines in both performance and looks
and is available in three different color schemes; red, black or silver.
The Super Steady Shot technology minimizes blur caused by shaky hands, while the high light
sensitivity (ISO 1000) mode reduces blur by shooting at faster shutter speeds. There's even
an added defense with Sony's Clear RAW™ noise reduction system, which kicks in to counter
picture noise associated with high-sensitivity shooting.
As with other T-series cameras, you simply slide the lens cover down and the camera is ready
to capture images in seconds. Sony's ultra-fast Real Imaging Processor circuitry increases
the camera's efficiency for quicker start-up, faster shot-to-shot times, higher-quality
movie capture, and longer battery life. The supplied InfoLithium battery provides plenty of
power for up to 400 shots per full charge.
With the slide show feature, sharing your photos right on the camera's LCD is more
enjoyable. You can even connect the camera to your television with supplied cables. If you
have a wide-screen home theater then you'll love the 16:9 image mode that creates HDTV
proportional pictures that fill the screen perfectly. If prints are what you want, then
connect the DSC-T50 to any PictBridge enabled printer, and print directly from the camera,
no PC is needed.
