PhotoTEST Camera Sony Cyber-shot DSC T7

In the introduction to this review, I would like to say the following. Look at the pictures provided. Side view - Sony DSC T7 and Motorola RAZR V3. Ultra-thin gadgets that cause not only admiration, but also a reasonable question - why? After all, most modern digital cameras are already small in size, the same applies to mobile phones ... Then why make them even thinner (smaller, lighter)? Maybe to get another marketing advantage and disturb the minds of innocent users? Yes, to some extent it is. Or is it a "flexing muscle" of two large companies that largely determine the future of the market? Certainly. But it is also a pleasure that any owner of such a little thing gets. And whether it is pleasure from contemplating the design of the "gadget" or from its work, we will try to figure it out below.

First Impressions

I want to present you a thing so pretty that you want to own it without thinking about its capabilities, advantages or disadvantages. Although the Sony DSC T7 has not only an exquisite appearance, but also very good performance. In this case, the combination of high technology and the hard work of designers led to an outstanding result. First, I would like to pay attention to the miniature dimensions of the camera. It is no more than a business card holder (you know, there is such an attribute of a businessman - a box in which business cards are stored). Secondly, this is a full-fledged camera, and not a toy with a set of functions cut down to indecent. It has a Carl Zeiss branded 3x optical zoom, a large 2.5-inch screen, and even a tripod socket that allows you to mount it on a tripod and take night shots. Thirdly, the electronics, and, if I may say so, the intelligence of this camera allows you to get technically correct pictures, even if the owner of the camera is completely unfamiliar with the theory of photography.

Not very pleasant features of the Sony T7, which will take some getting used to, include:

  • not the best position for the lens - unfortunately, you cover it with your finger very often (fortunately, this can be immediately noticed on the monitor and corrected by removing your finger from the frame);
  • an inconvenient rocker button that controls the zoom.
  • a small number of controls, which is a consequence of the small size of the camera (the minimum that is, is enough to work in a "full automatic", but not for quick manual settings).
  • When carried in a pocket, the lens protection panel can move by itself.

The camera will automatically turn on. And it may turn out that by the time it is needed, the battery will already be discharged. Therefore, despite the "pocket" dimensions 4 Bedroom House for Sale in Kimironko, it's better to store the camera in a case.

But these are all little things that are easy to adapt to. The main thing is how the camera shoots, and it shoots very, very well for this class of cameras.

The control system is quite simple. The main control body is a five-button switch, with the help of which both the direct activation of some modes and menu navigation in order to select the desired function take place. Anyone who has ever held a compact camera in their hands will not experience serious difficulties in mastering the T7. The camera menu is intuitive and easy to master as well.

Functions

The camera has a set of scene programs and settings that can provide high quality pictures in most situations encountered in amateur photography. What can you say about the functions and settings of the camera? There are so many of them, and they are so diverse, that their description would take quite a lot of space. Therefore, let's go "on top".

Ten story programs. In addition to the traditional ones, there are those that have appeared on the menu of digital cameras relatively recently. For example, "Fireworks" or "Night portrait".

Exposure compensation. If for some reason you are not satisfied with the operation of automation, you can correct the exposure by entering the necessary corrections in the range from -2 EV to +2 EV.

Methods of focusing. There are several autofocus modes that differ in the way the focus point or area is selected. In addition, you can set the focus to several fixed distances (0.5 m, 1 m, 3 m, 7 m and infinity). This mode can be useful when shooting in low light conditions when the power of the autofocus illuminator is not enough.

In addition to color, the camera can produce a black and white or warm brown image.

As a "bonus" you can consider the video mode with a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels.

Summarizing, we can say that the Sony T7 has everything you need for a novice amateur photographer to get high-quality pictures with it.

Shooting

As always, in our tests when shooting with amateur cameras, we try not so much to show their shortcomings as to demonstrate their best qualities. So that potential buyers can evaluate not only the technical, but also the creative capabilities of the model in question.

But let's start with a few "technical" exercises.

Checking the quality of the white balance setting in auto mode when shooting under cloudy conditions. In the right picture (auto white balance), you can see that the image has a cooler blue tone, when the balance is set to Cloudy, the image is warmer. Choose what you like best.

The Sony T7 has a fairly wide dynamic range. This can be judged by the fact that both shadow and well-lit areas of the image are well worked out in this picture. You can see the texture of the upholstery of the seat, which is exposed to direct sunlight, and the details of a man's boot in the lower part of the frame.

One of the most difficult tests for a camera's optics and exposure metering system are shots with strong light sources in the frame. In this photo taken in automatic mode, you can see that the Vario-Tessar fitted to the T7 and the camera's automatic did a good job.

Landscape scene mode provides maximum depth of field.

This shot was taken in conditions where deep shadows can appear under the eyes of the person being portrayed, so the built-in flash came in handy, which gave a delicate fill.

A meticulous "pro" might say that when you zoom in on this image, you can notice quite a lot of digital noise, especially in the blue channel. But I assure you, when you print in 15 x 20 format, you will not notice anything like that.

Pros

Small size, stylish design. Advanced automation. Good quality photos.

Cons

People with large hands will find it difficult to operate this camera. When carried in a pocket, the protective panel may spontaneously open and turn on the camera.

Conclusions

Due to its minimal dimensions, stylish design and very good characteristics, this model, designed primarily for ladies, can also be a great addition to the business suit of a gentleman with thin musical fingers.
