We briefly got our hands on
Sony's DSC-T300 digital camera (along with a bevy of other Cyber-shots) back at PMA earlier this year, but the folks at Digital Photography Review have now come through with a thorough review of the camera which, among other things, is particularly notable for its use of touchscreen controls. On that important point, they found the controls "generally pleasant to use," aided in no small part by the "largest possible screen for a camera of its size" (3.5 inches). They were also particularly impressed with the Cyber-shot's "small, smart design" and its impressive 5x optical zoom. It's not all good news, however, with the camera also boasting what Digital Photography Review describes as "terrible battery life," as well as "over-enthusiastic reds," and a noise-reduction feature that not only eliminates noise but reduces image quality no matter what the setting. Some pretty big trade offs, to be sure, but apparently not enough to keep it from getting an above average rating.
