I owned a lot of camera, this Sony Cybershot T1 is the best I have ever owned. The other generations of this camera have touchscreen which are inconvenience and useless. I prefer the physical button instead of touchscreen. Two down sides of this camera: one is the flash unit, which never got any good pictures with it on. Another problem is the user interface. It is okay for the camera section, but horrible for the home screen to select video an other functions of the camera, and its confusing too. PROS:Convenience, turn on the camera simply slides down the cover.Big Screen.Acurate Focus.No touchscreen (could be a CONS for other people). CONS:Bad Flash Unit, all pictures come out very bad with the flash on.Confusing interface at the home screen.
