The Sony DSC T50 is a pocket sized digital camera- and an absolutely great one! It offers something different to almost every other digital camera. This is because the DSC T50 has a touch screen!!

The DSC-T50 is a beauty. I used a silver version but it's also available in a very bright red or black. The camera measures 3.75 x 2.25 x .9 (WHD, in inches) and weighs 5.8 ounces with battery and Memory Stick Pro Duo card. The front of camera is as clean as can be with understated Sony and Cybershot logos on the metal case. There's also an eyelet for the wrist strap. DSC-T50 takes 640 x 480 pixel clips at 30 frames per second, basically VHS levels. On the left side is a compartment for the battery that's rated 400 shots per the CIPA standard and the memory card slot. On the bottom are a metal tripod mount, speaker and port for the special combination USB/AV/DC-in cable.

The real standout is the 3-inch LCD screen on the back (there's no viewfinder). As mentioned it's a touch screen so you make all your adjustments by tapping the screen with a fingernail or the supplied stylus! This eliminates the classic four-way controller and center set button found on almost every other digicam. There is a wide/toggle switch, a key to activate the onscreen menu and a display option (with histogram). As a cool touch, icons for the two keys are backlit. The screen and keys are all set on a black background, so the LCD and silver keys really stand out. You really couldn't ask for a cleaner layout than the DSC-T50. As stated before, it's a beauty.

Last but not least, my favourite aspect of the camera is the antiblurr system- the fact that it can not take a blurred picture, as it immediately sharpens it automatically!

All in all, I love this product, simply because its stylish,sleek, compact and takes stunning pictures.

Very nice little review! I would have rated higher, but I still missed some important info in your review, such as connectivity to PC, what formats can you save pics in, shooting modes, does the touchscreen scratch easily...? If you update, let me know. Radka
