This camera is one of the most fun cameras there are for travel. Optical quality is great as well as video. Just outstanding. Problems: Becareful of taking night time shots of large groups of people.... the senor is just too noisey and the flash not strong enough. Not a problem, just something to consider.

Comparing this to the older T1, the T5 is quite an improvement. The focus is faster, the colors are alot more accurate, there's a tripod mount right on the camera, the battery has a clip that holds it in when the battery/memory door is opened, the LCD has a plastic protector on it and the sliding lens cover is now made of plastic so it won't get dented easily like the T1 did. Problems: The flash pictures aren't the best. There's alot of reflections and red-eye because the tiny flash is too ...

What a great pocket camera - perfect for wipping out to capture the moment. A dream to use - point and click. I've had the camera for a few weeks ... and it's been by my side all the time ... always performed well. Problems: The front lense cover keeps catching in my pocket, as does the switch on the top (switch between preview, camera and movie). Battery life isn't great - but that could be because i'm taking loads of images and running it down??? So maybe it isn't that bad ...

Excellent camera, but design a real step down from its predecessor. I had a T1 before, and expected the T5 to have been subject to the usual Sony design treatment where things just got even better. Here are the fundamental flaws and the points where Sony have demonstrated to me that they aren't THINKING : 1. They have moved the microphone from the middle of the top edge to the far left - only then to be completely covered by my fingertip because its the natural place to 'balance' your grip ...

I owned the predecessor to this camera, the DSC-T1, for 1 year but dropped it in water last week and killed it. I tried drying it out for a few days but when I plugged it into the charger it just got overheated. I liked my DSC-1 and had paid $500 for it so when I was shopping and comparing cameras I was happy to see that Sony upgraded to the DSC-T5 with many improvements in the last year. I got this almost as soon as it hit the stores and paid $345 - more technology for a cheaper price. ...

I have been owned this camera for couples of days. My first impression is: comparing to the Canon Powershot S1 IS before, Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 has many more advantages. It has 5 megapixels, big 2.5'' LCD, and lastest fashion design. The battery is Info-Lithium, so that we can actually control the time of using camera. Moreover, it is as compact as a business card: you can simply put it into any shirt's pocket. This is another envident to prove that the T-series is the most beautiful and ...

I am curious as to why there are no more reviews/comments about this camera. It appears to be selling .. I have mixed results with this camera. It is very portable and at times with ISO 64 settings delivers nice sharp photo files. At other times at ISO 200 on landscapes it takes poor quality photos. I ran some ISO setting tests which so far have not defined the problem. Problems: As mentioned above, quality varies. Senics have been useless while other shots have been very good. I am ...

I'm a pretty serious photographer and I always love to have a camera with me where ever I go - including scrambling up difficult terrain. As soon as I had the T5 in my hands I fell in love with it. It felt well built and there is a lot of engineering behind the design. I needed a camera that would fit comfortably in my pocket. I was just expecting a simple good quality point and shoot camera - however after a few days exploring all it's features - I found that this is much more of a camera ...

Feels "better" than the T7 though image quality looks the same. Though a bit more sturdy than the T7. Still wouldn't get one... Best Advice...stay away from Sony's Cameras Problems: 1. I don't like the lens cover, a bump in your pocket 2. Almost too expensive for a Sony
