With HD video recording and stereo sound, is the T500 a slimmer alternative to a camcorder?

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T500 digital camera

 

If full touchscreen is your thing then you have a growing number of cameras available to you. The Cyber-shot T500 from Sony offers a full touch interface, but can it deliver your photos too? We got about 100 shots from the camera before being met with...

Macro mode works well, dock great for viewing on TV, audio quality on video, build quality

Battery life poor, low light image noise, dock doesn’t charge without additional adapter, no memory card, expensive

We got about 100 shots from the camera before being met with the first flat battery. At times you’ll find you get less, especially if you are taking pictures, showing them off, or standing waiting for the right moment with the camera on. Filming full...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T500 review

 

Sony's T-Series has gained hi-def video shooting powers with the T500. Is it worth the hefty price tag?

A stunning compact with impressive hi-def video powers, but you’ll have to fork out for it

Sony DSC T500 digital camera review

 

The Sony DSC T500 is a very stylish, pocket digital camera. It has 10 megapixels and a 5x optical zoom lens. It has a few extra features when compared to more standard pocket cameras such as a 3.5 inch LCD screen, image stabilisation and the ability to...

Sony DSC T500

 

The Sony DSC T500 is one of the most stylish digital cameras on the market. In terms of features it has 10 megapixels, a 5x optical zoom lens, image stabilisation and a touch controlled 3.5 inch LCD screen. It can also capture HD quality movies.

Design and style - touch screen control

Photos could be that bit better

The DSC T500 is an extremely stylish digital camera. Many people will be attracted by its large, touch controlled LCD screen and its ability to take HD quality movies. In terms of picture quality it can take a decent snapshot, but falls short of the...

Sony - DSC T500

 

There's no denying that the Sony T-500 is a highly stylish and sophisticated looking camera. With an ultra slim body measuring 97.0 x 59.3 x 21.4mm, available in silver, black or red brushed metal, you can ...

The Sony DSC T500 is a frustrating camera. On the one hand it's wonderful to look at and to show off, but there are, unfortunately, some negatives too. Touchscreen operation makes it a modern and refreshing compact to operate and its HD movie...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T500

 

Touch-screen camera that records 720p video footage.

Captures good detail, HD video recording, HDMI included on dock

Noisy images even at low sensitivities, touch-screen interface is very fiddly

Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-T500 is a decent compact camera with some nifty features such as 720p video recording. However, its touch-screen interface is irritating and its images are noisier than normal.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T500 review

 

When Sony announced the 10-megapixel Cyber-shot DSC-T500 in August 2008, 720p HD video recording in point-and-shoot cameras wasn't widespread. Now, even though it's popular, the T500 does have some of the best video quality I've seen in an ultracompact...

Good video quality; attractive design; stereo mic; 5x optical zoom with image stabilization for photos and video; includes multioutput dock.

Mediocre photo quality; poor battery life; comparatively expensive.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T500 is a great pocket video camera despite being merely passable at snapshots.
