For a company in disarray Sony is still making a remarkably good fist of its digicam line. Here’s further proof…
The T10 is the latest swanky addition to a range of products whose major drawback remains its unfailing addiction to MemoryStick flash memory cards. Basic numeracy skills reveal it to be the successor to the T9 and it cuts a similarly svelte figure at 89.7 x 54.9 x 20.6mm despite squeezing in a mighty 7.2 megapixels.
Anti-blur technology makes it across (as it does to pretty much all Sony models these days) and a certain Mr Carl Zeiss is once again responsible for the lens. Furthermore a super sensitive maximum ISO1000 rating should makes it particularly good for photography in low light conditions (*wink wink*) while bundled software enables you to playback MP3s as background music for slideshows.
More standard fare include a 3x optical zoom, 2.5in LCD (though with 230,000 pixels), nine scene selection modes, 56MB of internal memory (essential for the forgetful among us) and a pretty good 250 shot battery life. Memory Stick Duo and Memory Stick PRO Duos are its poison of choice.
An August release date applies if you live in the globally bullied US of A, otherwise it’s a September release for Europeans and we British half-in-half-out Europeans. The Yanks will shell out $400 for a T10 but Sony didn’t risk our anger by providing the mark up for us lot (£250ish sounds about right).
