Serious Camera Envy

POST #    761

Last night, my dad received his recently ordered Sony DSC-T1. He wanted a smaller digital camera since his other camera was "too bulky" to carry around. Damn, now I want a new camera as well. Lucky for me, he said I could borrow the new and old camera when I want.

Some specifications on the camera: 5.1-Megapixel, 3x optical zoom, 2.5" LCD display, and a mere 0.4lbs. More specs and photos at Steve's DigiCam and Dynamism.

sweet! you need to take a picture of it next to a quarter or something to give your readers a sense of its tininess :)

jeannette, that would have been the smart thing to do, but the japanese site has an image of a woman putting the camera in her purse, so it's really not too small. it's a little smaller and thinner than the powershots that we have.

that's a mad cute camera. the only problem is that it's a sony, which means that if anything breaks, you're f-ed. just like owning something from apple. bleh.

Ah the T1, I almost picked it up when I was in Hong Kong last December, but can't bring myself to buy a Sony digi-cam, I don't like them Memory Sticks. But yeah it's a hot camera, 5.1 Megapixel in such a small form-factor hummm lovely. Enjoy it!

the most vulnerable thing i see, from my brief usage is that sliding front cover. it's really cool, but i can see how that could pop off if dropped.

i too hate the memory sticks for their cameras and yes, the 5.1-MP in a small sized camera is a great feature.

So from now on I should not let Tien use THE camera. :-)
