Using the PRINT option the T9 can be connected directly to the Sony DPP-FP50 Picture Station photo printer (or any PictBridge comatible printer.) This is a personal 4 x 6" dye sublimation printer that makes photo-quality prints in about 60 seconds that have the same permanence as regular film photos. (Note: DSC-N1 shown above)

The Slide Show function is quite unique, it creates an automated playback of your images with your choice of transitions (simple, nostalgic, stylish, active) and music tracks which are ideal for playback on the LCD but they look even better on your big screen TV.
