Very good battery life! Pretty fast refresh time for another picture. Should have waited for the T50. Problems: The flash is tooooo long! By the time it flashes twice people think that the picture is taken already and they move! SUCKS! That also increases the time it takes to take a picture. You always gotta snap it about 1-2 seconds before the moment that you want in order to not miss that one moment. Also I have a MAJOR problem with orbs! I've never seen anything like this before from a ...

I've owned this camera for several months now, but had only played with it around the house getting used to finding and playing with many of its menu-embedded features. I just took it (instead of my trusty DSC-R1) on a week-long trip riding tourist trains in Colorado last week. Except for one newbie/pilot error early in the week, accidentally turning off the anti-shake function, (which I discovered and remedied after only a few shots), I was very pleased with my results. It's no R1, but it ...

I used this camera for approx. one week and then returned it because I found the image quality very disappointing. The camera looses a lot of detail in the dark areas and pictures show a lot of noise and were not very sharp when seen at 100%. The only thing that was outstanding was the macro function: excellent, very sharp and detailed. Problems: Pictures turned out too dark, too noisy and altogether not too sharp and detailed.

This is a great camera for many reasons: the resolution, lens quality, antishake, great movie mode and battery life. It's taking me a little while to get used to it (as with any new camera), but I'm finally beginning to coax good pix out of it. There are a few things I would have liked to change, however: the lens is a relatively slow f3.5--it should have been f2.8; some manual controls would be nice; being able to shoot in Abobe RGB rather than sRGB (I could not find any information about ...

Only arrived yesterday, but already liking it. I use as second camera to KM D7. Much more convenient, but lacks ultimate control. No RAW but JPEG quality is excellent. Minimal shutter-lag and excellent flash exposure. Needs a little pp to get the best out of pics though. Problems: None so far

I have a T5 but need another camera for trip. So I go for T30. I like the LCD very much as it has a thin glass to avoid any accident scratch. If it has 28mm lens, it will be perfect. Noise is comparative mush less than T5 at ISO200, however u still can notice it exist is dark areal. Steady shot give u shape image which why I go for this model. Problems: Why don't use 28mm lens?

SONY's DSC-T30 camera, Unbelieveable... with no out-of-camera post image processing other than cropping, and no Photoshop work whatsoever, gives great shots. The Camera's internal settings generally are: Program mode with Sharpness and Saturation both turned up one tick for images and all other settings in the camera are set to Automatic. The extreme close-up images were taken with the camera set to "Magnifying Glass" mode, which in this camera is called Macro2, accessible from the macro ...

I purchased the DSC-T30 to have with me at all times. It fits securely on my belt in its opional LCS-THH leather case. I chose it over the other T-series cameras because it has image stabilization and permits more adjustments for color, white balance, shooting modes, and focus. It has a 3-inch LCD which is stunning; the same information in pixels as the 2.5-inch but much greater clarity. I use a DSC-H1 with tele- and wide-converters for stills and a DCR-TRV22 mini- DV camcorder for videos all ...

This is my 5th Digital camera from C3030 to D200. I needed something what fitts in my pockect. Have a Nikon S1 which makes lovely blured pictures in low light and thought same size but image stabilization will be the thing I want. Ye but did not look a the finer handling points. Leather case supplied with it is to thight. Every time I take the camera out, the batterie case opens. When I but it in, the selector switch for review, photo or video gets moved. Camera remembers what was selected ...
