|In spite of the ultra slim size of the camera it is easy to handle. This might also be because of the weight and the clever details on the camera. The back has 18 small dots where the thumb automatically finds its place. The front of the camera has, next to the lens cap, a small upright edge to place the finger of your right hand. The camera can be operated very well with one or with two hands. The size of the camera enables taking it with you in the pocket of your trousers or the inner-pocket. Personally I would use a case because it would be a real pity to damage the beautiful LCD screen.
The camera is standard delivered with a docking station. The camera can be connected onto a television or a computer through this station. The USB interface is a USB 2.0 High Speed connection, and beside that the A/V connection of the docking station enables playing the images on a television. It is also possible to recharge the battery of the camera by placing the camera in the docking station, which starts the charging process automatically.
|The reproduction quality of the screen is a relief. The resolution of 211.000 pixels (960x220) guarantees a sharp reproduction. This is shown clearly when a 5x digital zoom is used during reproduction. Sliding of the image when zoomed in is rather fast.
The operation of the DSC-T1 is simple. The large screen contributes to the convenience. The settings and functions are shown well-organised and clear and staring at a small symbol belongs to the past. The expression "Golden Moment" refers to the moment one sees the captured image for the first time. On a digital camera it is usually the screen that shows the image. It may be obvious that experiencing the golden moment via a 2.5-inch high resolution screen has a lot more impact than via a small 1.5-inch screen!
