Sony Cybershot DSC T1 | Digital Camera Review | Control
Operating the DSC-T1 is easy and very direct. The large LCD screen shows the different settings very clearly. When the camera is set to Multipoint AF a wide auto focus frame appears on the LCD screen. The large screen combined with the wide auto focus frame gives you the feeling as if you are shooting a mosquito with an elephant rifle! You just can't miss the object anymore! The on/off button combined with the large lens cap works handy and fast. Immediately after activating the camera it is ready to shoot (approximately 1 second). Sony has provided the DSC-T1 camera with a complete newly designed Real Imaging Processor. This processor has to produce clearer images at a higher processing speed and at the same time it should cost 30% less energy. Beside all this the interval time has shortened. The DSC-T1 produces images in high resolution with an interval of one second, and the interval of release from 0.009 second as well as the shutter speed of .029 second can be called very fast. It is also possible to take a series of 4 images with an interval of 0.33 second. The images will not be shown on the LCD screen right away. One who wants to see every image on the screen will have to settle with a respectable interval of 0.36 second.

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!
