Summary

Our Score:

7

A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. In some cases, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it to show the overall image quality. Some other pictures may be clicked to view the original full-size image.

----

The usual test shot of the cathedral window to compare detail and sharpness with other cameras. See below for a full-res crop or click to download the full-sized version.

----

The image quality is virtually indistinguishable from the Sony T77.

----

The tiny periscope lens produces less distortion than most others of this type.

----

Centre sharpness is pretty good.

----

Corner sharpness is also good, with minimal blurring or chromatic aberration.

Hi there. Does the T700 suffer from the same 'harsh JPEG compression' that was written about the T77? If so, would a person that just uses a camera for holiday snaps and family shots (me!) really notice this? My latest camera was (until I broke it!) the Sony T9 and I was pretty happy with the image quality from that.


Thanks very much. Regards, Jim

Amazon currently have the T700 (in certain colours) for 𧶏: how does that affect the value score for this review and does it make it worth buying?

In general, the prices drop for everything we review, given enough time. This is why we clearly state Price As Reviewed (so you know what it was reviewed & scored against) but also the Latest Price for comparison.





Since Build Quality, Feature and Image Quality haven't changed with a lower price, they all stay as they are. 𧶏 is 㿗 less, or 17%. That would clearly improve the Value score from 4/10 but bear in mind the competition will also have dropped in price too probably.





Whether or not this would bump it from 7 Overall to an 8 is slightly moot - there are many models that scored 9 Overall at the time of review that might also have dropped in price over time :)
