In this review, i'm compare 3 similar Cameras, noticably the T1/W1/V1:
Statistics of T1/W1/V1 AC Adaptor USB Cradle & cables 32 Mb Sony memory stick duo CD-ROM (software and firmware update) A/V connecting cable for viewing on a TV Large LCD screen
Advantages of V1: Tonnes more professional features, more than W1. The W1 has very limited control over the exposure time and apature size. Cheaper than rest of other cameras
Disadvantages of V1: large size, weights 2x as much as the other cameras
Advantages of T1: Extremely small and easy to use Actually pocketable Small Rechargable Battery (purchase of Sony, Expensive) Light
Disadvantages: Small and easy to damage as you're tempted to put it in your pocket No Decent zoom Rechargeable battery expensive Not very good at tacking pictures in the dark No professional features No viewfinder (useful when battery low)
I compared this to the W1 which I bought after hours of comparisan in the shop and testing it out, i bought the W1 mainly because it was cheaper and had more features. I actually prefered something that had rechargable AA batteries so i can replace them any time.
Here the review i posted for the cybershot W1: "Main Advantages: No need to buy special battery, so during vacations, all you need to bring is camera and you can buy AA batteries in any supermarket
Very large screens, zoomable. It feels much better using taking pictures through this large LCD screen, it has a high refresh rate and shows a lot of detail. I’ve found a useful trip of taking pictures of maps during trips and then zooming in, this way I will never get lost!
Easy to use and with professional features: It has a standard automatic setting that helps you automatically set the exposure. Along with this, there is a manual mode that allow allows you to take 30 second exposures at night etc.
Very Good lens, Carl Zeiss, Vario Tessar, it’s the best lens out there
Movie feature, this is useful for short clips. The quality is decent and a 256 megabyte memory card would allow 10 minutes of recording
Slightly larger than other cameras, however, this is balanced by the fact that you don’t need to take a special battery recharger on trips and the cheaper price
