Cyber-shot DSC-T200 Highlights

High Performance

Technological wizardry for effortless photo mastery! Capture perfect portraits, smiling faces, action far and near in beautiful, blur-free detail at 8.1 megapixels.

Sony Cybershot DSC-T200 features and highlights
Produce crisp, clear portraits every time with Face Detection technology Whenever you shoot portraits of family members and friends, you can count on clear reproduction of faces whether subjects are perfectly still or moving slightly. Sony’s advanced Face Detection technology synergizes with Bionz to deliver highly precise, high-speed auto-focusing of up to 8 subjects’ faces when shooting portraits. This synergy ensures quick camera tracking of subjects, even when faces are slightly in motion, and significantly improves the performance of various camera features. For example, it enhances Sony’s original auto white balance and skin color control to prevent mistaken estimates of the luminous source (resulting in a reddish image) and mistaken correction of face color. It also improves exposure (including AE) and flash adjustment to prevent under/over exposure of your subject’s face and ensure suitable brightness. These improvements in turn help prevent blackout and whiteout in the subject’s face caused by exposure and flash settings optimised for the background. Moreover, red-eye reduction automatically activates when Face Detection is ON. Together, these advances enable instant analysis of image data and optimization of exposure and tone according to the scene. All Face Detection features work together to deliver ideal portraits every time.

Meet Smile Shutter, the first photo feature that knows how to capture smiles Capture joyous moments that used to get away! Whenever Face Detection finds a face, the unique new Smile Shutter mode can spot a smile. Simply activate Smile Shutter, and the camera takes a picture -- automatically! Using Sony’s proprietary algorithm, this innovative intelligent auto shutter system responds actively to smiling faces. To start, just choose Smile Shutter from Scene Selection, then press the shutter fully on the subject to be taken; the camera automatically detects the smiling face and closes the shutter. To detect the different degrees of smiles by your subject, you can set Smile Level sensitivity to "high" (to detect a faint smile), "medium" (for a normal smile), or "low" (for a hearty laugh). If there are several subjects in the frame, you can use the Touch Screen to specify the smiling face you want to take as the main subject -- or let the Smile Shutter choose the main subject and take the picture. Moreover, the Smile Shutter is great for taking horizontal as well as vertical pictures -- including group pictures where everybody is smiling, and self-portrait shots that automatically catch spontaneous smiles at the right moment. Think of the countless smiles you never want to miss -- a child’s innocent grin, joyful faces of family and friends, your own happy face in travel photos -- and use Smile Shutter to turn good times and good feelings into treasured shots. Time after time, you’ll smile at the results!

Enjoy 8.1 megapixels of exquisite detail Sony's acclaimed 8.1-megapixel Super HAD CCD offers high-resolution performance in compact dimensions, as well as numerous advances available only from the world’s leading CCD manufacturer. For example, an advanced sensor configuration reduces the gaps between microlenses so that each sensor captures more light for brighter, more accurate images with less noise. Clear, faithful image reproduction is now yours to enjoy.

Sony Cybershot DSC-T200 features and highlights
Sharpen your edge with the Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens The DSC-T200 gives your images the startling accuracy and extra emotional impact of a highly renowned Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens. Originally designed in Germany, this high-contrast lens delivers natural clarity without distortion or noise. It’s just the right complement to Sony’s high-resolution CCD and 5x optical zoom.

Extend your reach with 5x optical zoom This is the world's slimmest camera with 5x optical zoom. And smooth, seamless zooming from 1x to 25x expands your photographic possibilities. You can capture magnificent scenes at the 1x setting, zoom closer with perfect clarity using 5x optical zoom, attain 8.5x zooming at high-definition quality with HD Smart zoom (16:9), or focus on minute details like faraway flowers with 25x Smart zoom (VGA). Whether you’re photographing natural scenes or capturing the facial expressions of distant loved ones, the DSC-T200’s powerful zooming capabilities let you make the most of memorable shutter opportunities.

Sony boosts your photographic potential with Bionz The cutting-edge Bionz imaging processor, first introduced on the Sony Alpha DLSR, is now available on a Cyber-shot. Bionz takes advantage of Sony’s accumulated imaging technology to digitally process the high-resolution image data from the 8.1-megapixel CCD at high speeds and deliver dynamically clear, high-resolution images with natural color reproduction and minimal noise. It’s a level of precision unheard of in small cameras.

Optimize the dynamic range of your images automatically D-Range optimization employs a sophisticated image analysis algorithm originally developed by Sony to automatically determine the best exposure and contrast settings for optimal dynamic range in almost any shooting environment. In this way, the DRO gives your images a natural look with clearer details that match what you see with your naked eye. This is especially effective when shooting backlit portraits or any scene with dramatic contrast between background and foreground lighting. For example, the details of stained glass in a high-rise cathedral can be captured along with the deep blue sky.

Sony Cybershot DSC-T200 features and highlights
A clearly better solution: Double "Anti-blur" Sony’s Double "Anti-blur" Solution reduces blur in your images -- both subject shake blur and camera shake blur -- through an intelligent combination of Sony’s original Super SteadyShot optical image stabilizer and high sensitivity shooting up to ISO3200. These features are highly effective at reducing blur even when shooting fast-moving subjects and portraits in dimly lit rooms. The gratifying results are extremely clear images every time you shoot.

High Sensitivity suppresses subject shake blur When environmental lighting is dim, such as inside a room or outdoors at twilight, the high-sensitivity ISO3200 setting lets you achieve natural results without using a flash -- even if the subject moves. Blur is reduced and details are clear in the subject and background, so you can take full advantage of the camera’s 8.1-megapixel resolution.

Super SteadyShot minimizes camera shake blur Camera shake blur, a common byproduct of handheld shooting, is effectively reduced by the Super SteadyShot optical image stabilizer. This feature employs a built-in gyro sensor that detects camera shake and a shift lens unit that compensates to help prevent blur. As a result, images are clearer in various circumstances, such as when shooting photos in dimly lit rooms.

Elegant Ease

Just touch the wide screen for instant photo inspiration. The revolutionary DSC-T200 sets the new standard in simplicity, sophistication, and supreme Cyber-shot style.

The 230,000-dot high-resolution screen delivers superior clarity and color reproduction for exceptionally precise images, so you can easily check camera settings and capture beautiful, true-to-life pictures in vivid, natural color tones.

You can personalize your slide shows by combining four visual effects (Simple, Nostalgic, Active, and Stylish) and choosing any of four preset musical pieces stored in internal memory. Your favorite tunes can also be imported from PCs to the DSC-T200 for use as background music.

Paint creative arrangements This function enables you to add a stamp, draw or write on your images using a supplied Paint Pen. For example, it’s simple to add a message to a photo -- write "Happy Birthday" on a gift photograph or add a favorite message to a picture. Painted pictures are saved in the camera as copies, apart from the original pictures. Now, the DSC-T200 brings you more ways to enjoy the Paint function by decorating screen images with pictures or text. You can choose from an expanded range of 15 colors for pen and stamp functions and 30 stamp shapes, with 15 frames available for new screen images -- and save in 3MP size in addition to VGA. Paint is a special way to make photo memories even more precious, and bring a personal touch to very special images.
*Notes: Painted images are saved separately from the original images. Resolution of the stamps, frames, and painted letters has no difference between 3MP size and VGA.

Edit your images with in-camera retouching Fun, convenient editing functions let you easily touch up photos right in the camera, even immediately after you shoot.

Feel exceptional pride of possession The elite new Cyber-shot DSC-T200 is a style icon in form as well as function. At first admiring glance, you might actually wonder, "What is it?" The revolutionary front and rear design of this T series model is not easily identifiable, breaking with the existing conventional image of a camera. Drawing on the vertical design and basic concept of the previous DSC-T100, the DSC-T200 adopts a slimmer, more sophisticated look. The Touch Screen dispenses with buttons to fill the entire rear surface, for the appearance of a photo frame. The downsized battery allows thinner dimensions than the sculpted rectilinear T100, while the elegant curvilinear DSC-T200 combines enhanced grip with streamlined vertical design and a wider screen, creating a graceful impression. Like its precursor, the DSC-T200 is available in three dramatic colors --sophisticated silver, chic red, and elegant black in a new graphite shade -- and the front of each model is finished with a fine-quality hairline process. It’s a must-have Cyber-shot -- a pleasure to possess and display, and a joy to use.

Photos in internal memory can easily be copied to Memory Stick Duo.

By M. Zhu on November 14, 2007
Color: Black
Sony T200 is a best buy. I have owned several Canon A series and SD series cameras up from 3MP, and this is the first Sony camera I bought, so here is my opinion comparing Sony T200 against Canon ones.

1) Adjustable flash intensity: T200 offers three levels of internal flash intensity: soft, normal and strong, user selectable. I haven't seen it on my Canon yet. Soft flash is particularly useful for taking pictures on my kids. Their eyes are so precious to protect.

2) Smile face scene mode: Sony innovation. No Canon has this yet. It makes life easy when picturing my little kids. With other cameras, I have to shoot 10+ pictures in high speed mode and hope that one of them would come out with that beautiful natural smile. Definitely Sony advantage.

3) 3.5" LCD touch screen: another Sony innovation on camera, (only Apple iPod Touch has a similar size). As I measured, 3.5" is the screen horizontal dimension, corner to corner is about 3.75", no Canon has this LCD size at this moment. Bright, clear and beautiful. LCD surface has special coating, so no light reflection found on most other cameras. Plain fun to frame a picture and review photos with this Large LCD. Touch screen replaced those many traditional tiny navigation/select buttons, very nice to me. Big Sony advantage.

4) 5X optical lens: most Canon SD series cameras have 3X or 4X lens, but Sony T200 has 5X. Lens quality is very good, as the pictures are sharp and clear. Sony advantage.

5) Anti-vibration: Sony uses Super Steadyshot feature which is a sensor based floating feature to compensate for vibration. Canon SD870IS uses lens based stabilization feature. They are both quite effective on this kind of compact cameras. I don't see much difference on pictures.

Starts up at once with no noticeable 'boot up' time. Touch screen is cool and navigation is smooth, I actually am not missing those physical buttons, not even those dials. But I wish there was a way to lock it away at times when you don't want the settings to get changed by unintended touches while shooting. You need only shutter and telly/wide buttons while shooting, right? Kids just might find it hard to operate it without disturbing the settings.

One of the things that its 3.5" screen has made possible though is that it displays a good amount of info about your shot while keeping all the setups/presets/menus available on the screen at the same time. While you are focusing, it tells you in order the shutter speed, aperture value, sensitivity and exposure value, which is cool.

Enough maneuverability with great many presets for WB (white balance), ISO (sensor sensitivity); an EV(exposure value); etc. for the professionally inclined to get the best out of this camera. In PGM mode (program mode) WB, ISO, shutter speed and aperture can be played with but they are all given in the forms of presets to choose from (with the exception of EV that's given in the form of a scale). I have a stand with me, I took some photos of far off objects using zoom to its limit, and keeping the sensitivity low (ISO 80)- a way to tell the camera to prolong the exposure, I really got good details, I think I got more that what I expected as it is not a professional camera.

Night mode worked well, but its not outstanding.

Smile shutter is an interesting feature but I found holding the shutter button pressed a bit tedious for continuous shots, if only there was a way of integrating it with timer.

Macro mode gave pretty good pictures of rather close by objects.

I've been using a DSC-T30 for a year, everything about this camera is just fine. But I was seduced by the beautiful look of the red DSC-T200, and its large touch screen, so bought one as soon as I could. I returned it after a couple days of playing with it.

Sony has added marginal features to the T200, but has downgraded the important basic features. The T30 has a rather large 4.4Wh battery, the T200's is a puny 2.4Wh and runs down very fast, especially with the LCD turned to its most bright setting. With the T200 you're going to have to carry spare charged batteries. This is annoying.

Worst problem is indoor 'point & shoot' photos with the camera on "Automatic," most images come out grainy and noisy. Heck, that's what an ultracompact camera is for. I don't know why this is, maybe because the flash lamp on the T200 is much smaller than the T30's flash? I open every photo I take in "Photoshop" and try to improve them, but these take too much work. Outdoor photos are better, but not totally wonderful, just OK.

The LCD on the back of the camera isn't all that great. Instead of glass (like my new iPod Touch) the T200 has a somewhat flexible plastic membrane cover which requires a pretty firm 'push' to activate. When I push it to set the focus point while taking a shot, for example, the camera moves a bit.

I've always hated having to remove the battery from the T30 to charge it, (because of the flimsy plastic cover), so was hoping the T200 might have a charging base accessory. Not. Oh, enough. I could go on. The T200 touch screen menus are very clear and simple to understand though, let me at least give Sony credit for that. And it's such a pretty camera!
