    Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T20 Highlights

    8.1-megapixel Super HAD CCD More megapixels give you more detail and definition when you make big prints or crop in tight on your subject. The advanced Sony Super HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD design allows more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing noise.

    Carl Zeiss 3x optical zoom lens An ingenious Carl Zeiss lens design provides 3x optical zoom in amazingly compact dimensions -- and even at full zoom the lens doesn’t project beyond the camera body, preserving its ultra-slim styling.

    Face detection By automatically controlling focus, exposure, color and flash, this new Sony feature reveals faces in shadow, makes skin tones look more natural and eliminates harsh facial glare -- to help bring out every expression on every face in every shot, so you’ll capture the personalities and emotions that make memories come alive.

    Sony Double Anti-Blur solution With Super SteadyShot optical image stabilization and high sensitivity (ISO 3200), the DSC-T20 compensates for shaky hands, minimizes blur, brightens images and allows flash-free shooting to preserve the mood -- and Sony Clear RAW Noise Reduction reduces the picture noise that can ruin low-light shots.

    HD output Thanks to Sony, your photo album can go high-def -- with direct HD output to compatible HDTV screens, so you can view DSC-T20 still photos in spectacular high-definition clarity and detail. Your life never looked so exciting! Note: HD output requires an optional Sony HD connector cable; HDTV sold separately

    HD slide show with music It’s the high-definition viewing experience that makes photos come alive on HDTV screens, accompanied by your choice of visual effects and any of four preset musical selections stored in memory or your favorite MP3 tunes downloaded from PC to your camera for use as background music.

    9-point auto focus Because an off-center subject can make your shot more interesting, the DSC-T20 can measure auto-focus precision at 9 points on your screen -- giving you greater creative freedom to compose your image.

    D-Range Optimization Powered by the exclusive Sony Bionz high-speed processing engine, D-Range Optimization preserves image data in bright highlights and reveals more detail in shadows or backlit areas -- for great results even in difficult lighting conditions.

    In-camera retouching The DSC-T20 lets you add creative effects to photos after you shoot -- including soft edge filter to soften backgrounds, cross filter to place starry "dazzles" at highlight points, partial color filter to mute surrounding colors, even fish-eye filter to create interesting fish-eye lens effects.

    In-camera red-eye reduction Irritating "glowing eyes" can ruin even the most creative photos -- so the DSC-T20 provides in-camera correction at the touch of a button to reduce lingering red-eye effect that other systems might miss.

    2.5-inch Clear Photo LCD Plus screen With its Clear Photo LCD Plus design, the big, bright 2.5-inch screen of the DSC-T20 makes photos look more natural when you’re sharing on location -- and gives you adjustable brightness for viewing even in bright sunlight.

    Simple setup controls A touch of the Home button opens your user-friendly GUI -- and you can select functions by simply moving a cursor vertically or horizontally to the appropriate icon. Function names and the on-screen Function Guide display make it easier to learn camera setup operations.

    31 MB internal memory The DSC-T20 allows you to capture a large number of images without a flash memory card, so it’s great for traveling or for quick candid snapshots.

    Memory Stick Duo media convenience A built-in slot accepts optional Memory Stick Duo media or Memory Stick Pro Duo media -- the compact, high-capacity storage media that make it easily to upload photos to your computer or make lab-quality prints at home on your Sony Picture Station digital printer (sold separately).

    15x Smart Zoom feature The Sony Smart Zoom feature intelligently "crops into" the central portion of interest in your photo, avoiding the image degradation of other digital zooms.

    MPEG Movie VX Fine mode Captures VGA (640 x 480) audio/video clips at high frame rate (up to 30 frames per second), with length limited only by the capacity of your media.

    Stamina battery power The DSC-T20 provides up to 380 shots with a fully-charged NP-BG1 Lithium-ion battery -- enough shooting capacity to cover a long weekend or a whole vacation.

    Picture Motion browser software Supplied software makes it easier to upload, organize and search photos on your PC -- and provides a convenient map view function to sort photos by location and display their origin on a world map by using an optional GPS unit.

    I just purchased two pink T20s and one black T100 as gifts. Before I gave them away, I did a few tests for myself.

    I originally thought these two models were identical except for the different lenses and LCDs, so their photos should be similar. My test results didn't support with my assumption, though. While T100 surprised me a little bit by producing very clear photos, T20 had problems producing consistent clear images.

    Like the N1 I have, T20 seems to have the trouble of focusing the object correctly indoors. About half of the photos are more or less out of focus. On the contrary, 90 percent of the photos produced by T100 are correctly focused. In addition, although I set both models in the same way (ISO to 80, face detection to ON, SteadyShot to ON, and illuminator to AUTO) photos taken by T20 seemed nosier than that by T100. I cannot be sure if the lens, the processor, or whatever else caused that.

    My suggestion: choose T100 over T20 whenever possible. I am convinced that T100 is superior to T20 in producing good photos and worth the extra money.

    We have had this camera about 2 months, since nearly the debut on Amazon, late April. What intrigued me was this is a reasonably-priced ultra-compact with image stablilization (Sony Super Steadyshot). What also intrigued me was the secondary "anti-blur" and low-light solution, which is High ISO (ISO 3200). Well, kudos to Sony for the Super Steadyshot, but the High ISO setting is a huge disappointment. If you are buying this camera for primarily low-light, without flash situations, then look elsewhere. If you are buying it as a 8 megapixel ultracompact with the Steadyshot image stabilization, then it is worth the price.

    In typical outdoor situations or indoors with flash, the photos are great. If like me and my kids, you have a natural tremor in your hands, the image stabilization will make you love digital cameras. The shutter lag is reasonably short too, which for me is a welcome relief from 2 prior generations of Olympus cameras in the family. In fact, shutter lag is what kept me from buying Olympus again.

    Back to the high ISO (3200). There is a reason this is hard to pull off in any camera line. I'm surprised Sony went this high, as the results are quite annoying. The "grain" is atrocious, reminding me of photos taken with a VGA web-cam! Were I Sony, I would have optimized for ISO 1600 before going to market, as 1600 is still 2 to 4 times greater than most consumer-market cameras. I also wish Sony had an option between 400 ISO and 3200, but I can't find it.

    I'm a bit annoyed with the features menu as well. I don't necessarily see a rhyme or reason why they divided the features as they did. I don't pick this camera up every day, or every week for that matter, and I have to traverse two separate features tree to find what I'm looking for.

    I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this camera! It takes great pictures no matter what the conditions! I purchased a 2gig memory for it and can take tons of great pics and video. The battery lasts a really long time and its easy to charge. The charger doesn't have a cord so I leave it plugged in the kitchen and just put in the battery every few days. The different settings & menus are easy to get to and easy to see even without my glasses on that big screen. I cannot say enough good things about this camera. If you need a pociet sized good quality camera, buy this!

    Fantastic camera! Overall, I've been very pleased with the sony cybershot line, and seem to continually upgrade to a higher model. Due to the inability of my 1 yr old neice to stay still for more than one second (unless she's asleep), I've quickly realized that I needed the SteadyShot feature. WOW. It's fantastic & has made all the difference in my pix of her.

    I also used the T20 at a concert, in low light conditions. With the proper setting chosen, I got some wonderful & clear pictures. So much so that everyone was asking what kind of camera I used. It's very light & fits nicely into a pocket or purse, but not so small that you feel you are going to break it. The buttons are well placed and easy to manage.

    A big concern of mine was chaging from AA to lithium batteries (i liked the ability to run out and get new AA's at the drop of a hat without having to wait for charging). However this seems to be no worry - the battery life with the T20 seems to be excellent - I used it extensively on a 2 week holiday to England/Scotland and never once did I run the battery below 1/2 power (and I promise you, I'm a shutterbug). I used a 4 gig memorystick PRO duo, and with 800 pix at 8MP, plus substantial video, I had just over 1/2 the card filled.

    It didnt get 5 stars from me because it has only a 3x optical zoom, and thats a bit low (esp. as some lower model cybershots have higher optical zoom ratings). Also, the menu is a bit scattered (sometimes you need to navigate 2 button menus to get something accomplished) and it would have been nice to have compatibility with the standard memorystick format, as I now have a lot of sticks that are obsolete. Oh well, the price of progress.

    Overall, it's great camera and I'm very impressed with the quality of the pictures. I'm definitely recommending it to friends/family.
