|The top of the camera features a small microphone, an on/off button, a small led showing the status of the activity and a shutter release button. The bottom of the camera has a multi-connector to enable the connection between the camera and the docking station when the camera is placed in the station. The connector can also be connected directly onto the A/C power. We also find a small cap that gives entry to the battery compartment that also has a memory slot in it.
The back side is the control centre of the DSC-T1 camera. The large 2.5-inch LCD monitor attracts the attention straight away of course. Next to it a few buttons are placed, for example the zoom button, the menu button and the navigation buttons. It looks calm and quiet and the modern stainless steel looks like it felt, solid, and of fine quality.
|The buttons are easy to operate and react directly. The large LCD screen doesn't have hardly any interval, so using it is very pleasant. The camera doesn't have an optical viewfinder but to be honest, the temptation of using the large LCD screen would be greater than using a small optical viewfinder.
The design is very fine, neatly finished and Sony has also given a lot of attention to the smaller details. The design is unique and striking. The designers of Sony still seem to have more than enough inspiration to come up with this surprising model!
