Our Score:


Over the next few pages we show a range of test shots. On this page the full size image at the minimum and maximum ISO settings have been reduced to let you see the full image, and a series of full resolution crops have taken from original images at a range of ISO settings to show the overall image quality.


This is the full frame at the minimum sensitivity setting of 80 ISO.


Even at 80 ISO there is some slight colour mottling, as well as JPEG artefacts.


NOt much difference at 100 ISO


At 200 ISO the colour is starting to fade in the green channel, and noise is getting worse.


Progressively worse noise at 400 ISO, but surprisingly there is still a lot of fine detail, such as the lettering on the spare tyre.


The noise control system goes into overdrive at 800 ISO, and the green colour is almost completely desaturated.


There's not much fine detail left at 1600 ISO.


As usual 3200 ISO is best avoided.


This is the full frame at the maximumsensitivity setting of 3200 ISO.

I'm pretty interested in the T700, but will wait for a few more reviews as it yet to be released...are you planning to review that any time soon?

Hi Sunil, I've got the T700 in for review at the moment, however you may have to wait until after Photokina to read about it.

And Beowulff, Sony has around 20 different models in its range, and caters to every sector of the market. What you're describing sounds like one of its W-series compacts, which are aimed at more demanding photographers. Also, Sony already has a huge share of the global digital camera market, and in fact has at various times been the world's best-selling camera brand.

I just love it.....and I assure you that you would fall in love with this tiny little Sony as soon as you touch and feel it for the very first time.

The first thing that i liked was its size, no one can beat the Sony T77. On top of that it has a 4x zoom that does not pop out. I was scared about the touch screen but just a few minutes with the camera and all my feares were proved wrong.

The other worry was how would it work at night. Well i just switched off all the lights of my living room dead in the night and took a few snaps. The very first result, and i could not stop smiling.

As far as the various settings are concerned, i would like to tell you that i am happy with the T77s auto settings. The camera is intelligent enough to let its happy owners enjoy the moment instead of wasting time in fiddling with diffrent settings for a great picture.

I bet my life on the T77 guys, just go and get it and fall in love.

PS When it comes to battery, i would like to tell that i always carry a stand by and recommend you the same.

I purchased the T77 today and am delighted. The camera in auto mode is a delight and does a great job. I am a complete amateur and confirmed non photographer, but this camera actually makes me want to get out there and start "shooting". I would highly recommenmd this great priced camera.

I have had the T77 for about three weeks now. All photos taken seemed of good quality until now. I have noticed white spots or circles in some of the photos taken indoors w/ the use of flash and appear randomly, and red eye seem to be a bit of a problem as well. Disappointing for a pricey gadget. I have had a sony cybershot before and never had problems like this.
