A few days ago i was looking at old photos on my computer and came across samples from this camera. Back in 2005 I got sick of a friend borrowing my Olympus compact.  So I bought her this Sony as a present. I was certain she would like it being a Sony fan and having Sony radio, headphones & portable CD player. This was a good looking camera metallic finish, slim, a state of the art 2.5 inch LCD screen. Problem was image quality.  Outside this 5mp camera was slightly worse than the old 3mp ...

I loved carrying this camera around in my pocket. Always made great daylight photos. Excellent macro also for taking pictures of documents or pages at the library. A real handy camera. Flash was weak. I could only reliably use this camera in good light conditions. Low light photos were usually blurry. The camera does not have a viewfinder, so it is very hard to "brace" the camera for steady shots in low light situations. No manual controls, so I could not reliably take panorama ...

I definitely love this little thing ! It goes everywhere with me ever since I bought it two years ago : Up and down the slopes when skiing, hiking or mountaineering, down in wettness and darkness when caving, in the cockpit when flying, etc. Its casing, for sure, starts to show some rough handling, but, in spite of the dents all its innards still function perfectly ! Problems: None so far !

after about a year of weekly use I've found that the t33 had: -excellent contruction -non-obtrusive lens (via internal periscopic zoom lens) -it's my 'everyday snapshot pocket camera' and MPEG movie clip maker -lots of settings / features as is typical with Sony compact camera's Because of common motion blurring in low-light conditions indoors with no natural light - I am tempted to try other settings like "candle-light" or "fireworks" modes. My unit is a Japanese limited import: a burgundy - ...

I spent couple weeks researching for ultracompact, and this camera 'suited' my needs and was on sale on Futureshop Website (I live in Toronto, Canada). I couldnt wait to get the camera. The look and feel is by far the best on the market - I love brushed metal feel and very modern look of it as you would expect from Sony. Huge display stays bright even in the sun. But...my first dissaponitment was built quiality - front metal cover was moving under my finger if you press it firmly, like it's ...

I had the T7 for a few days and found it very difficult to hold because of it's size. The T33 is very comfortable to hold and the battery lasts much longer that the one in the T7! Outdoor pictures are well exposed and the colors look really good. The LCD is easy to see even in the brightest sun. Problems: The flash is still not very powerful and causes alot of red-eye, but I guess this happens with alot of compact cameras.

I have the T1, as well, but the display is brighter by quite a bit on the T33. It does feel less solid - more plastic-y - than the T1, but it's also lighter and seems quicker. IT works great if you know what you're doing - like for taking night shots, set it to Fireworks - you'll get great shots! For grabbing something on the run, use the Speed Burst setting - you'll get clear shots where you wouldn't have before. And set the Exposure Value to -0.3 or more for outdoor bright light shots ...
