Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T2


The good: Zippy performance; sleek design; 4GB built-in memory; optical image stabilizer.

The bad: Requires dongle for USB; will only use memory card if internal memory is full; slow zoom.

The bottom line: A likable ultracompact snapshot camera, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T2 nevertheless faces stiff competition from its own siblings, the T20 and T200.

In almost all respects, the T2 is quite the zippy shooter. From power on to first shot takes a hair less than 2 seconds. Time to focus and snap runs only 0.4 second in good light, though that rises to 1.2 seconds in dimmer situations–pretty good for a snapshot camera, but slower than you really want. The interval between two consecutive shots is a brisk 1.4 seconds, which rises to 2.5 seconds with flash. In burst mode, it snaps at a clip of about 2 frames per second. Only the T2’s slow-zooming internal lens provides a less-than-satisfying performance experience; it takes about 2.6 seconds to traverse the 3x zoom range. (By comparison, the T200 takes 2.8 seconds to cover its 5x zoom range.) As always, though, the Super SteadyShot optical image stabilization works well.

Overall, the T2’s photos look pretty good. As with the T200 and T20, they’re softer than the previous generation’s–notably the T100–and than some of the competition’s, due to what looks like more aggressive noise reduction. Still, they show good exposure and automatic white balance. There’s a bit of lens distortion and a bit of purple and cyan fringing, but the colors look pleasing and reasonably saturated. Like most snapshot cameras, photos taken at sensitivities beyond ISO 200 look really mushy and by ISO 800 lack detail entirely, so take Sony’s claim of ISO 3200 capability for the T2 with a chunk of salt.

Though it’s a perfectly competent little camera, on the basis of features, image quality, and performance, there’s little reason to opt for the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T2 over the less expensive T20 or better-equipped T200. If you find the design a significant attraction, then I suggest you visit one in a local store before making the commitment.
