Camera Review: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T1027242698475Sony CybershotDSC-T10I admit it -- I'm an equipment pig. When we go on vacation, I bring tons of my gear- 600mm f/4, 300mm f/2.8 and a full complement of other lenses, DSLR bodies, flashes, filters, tripod, monopod and other gizmos. I've even packed my studio lights before because I like to be prepared for any situation! So, much to my wife's chagrin and surprise, on our most recent vacation to Disney World I didn't bring any of that gear with me. Instead, I packed just two Sony cameras -- the Cyber-shot DSC-H5 (which will be reviewed in the coming weeks) and the small, pocket sized Cyber-shot DSC-T10 (Street price $306). The T10 is a 7.2MP camera with an iPod-like size and finish that incorporates a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 3x optical zoom lens (a 35mm equivalent 38-114mm f/3.5-8 (wide angle) -f/4.3-10 (telephoto)). The T10 is Sony's entry into the subcompact category and it sports a nice feature set -- including high quality video and stunning image stabilization rolled into a stylish design. At .8 of an inch in thickness, the T10 fits nicely into your hands and pocket. The camera has a contemporary look and features a large bar on the front. The bar is more than cosmetic though, and when pushed down, reveals the lens and turns the camera on. The advantage of this is that even in dark locations, you can turn the camera on and off effortlessly without having to search for the small power button located at the top of the camera. At first, I thought this was a strange way to turn on the power, but after using this feature, I really like it and now prefer it to the traditional power button, which on the T10 is small and hard to use.
