1. Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T99 Review by

Sony knows how to make a good looking camera. As with all of its T-series models, the T99’s lens sits behind a sliding panel that doubles as a power switch. For reasons we can’t quite explain, this design is immensely satisfying. The back of the camera is filled by a 3in touchscreen, and the overall effect is one of sleek, understated sophistication. The downside is that there’s not much to hold onto. We found that fingers sometimes crept in front of the lens as we did our best to grip its curved shell.

Unlike Sony’s Cyber-shot WX5 with its conventional boxy shape and protruding zoom lens, the flat-fronted brushed metal 14.1 effective megapixel, 4x optical zoom T99 is a slim-line snapshot contender of the slide open and shoot lens cover variety. This means its internally stacked optics are hidden from view when the camera is inactive, and at no point extend proud of the faceplate surface when in use.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T99 is basically the sexier ultracompact version of the company’s W350. It has many of the same features as that model, but switches from a telescoping external lens to an internal lens and adds a 3-inch touch screen. Unfortunately, the design and display raise the cost, but don’t do anything to improve photo quality or shooting performance. That’s not to say that the photos are bad, though, and if you want a touch-screen camera and can’t afford a more expensive model, the T99 is a decent camera.
