Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T900 - Test Shots - Detail and Lens Performance

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.


Here's the usual detail test shot of the West Window of Exeter Cathedral, for you to compare with other cameras. See below for a full res crop, or click to see the whole picture.


The T900 does take a better picture than the Samsung NV100HD but then it does cost over twice as much.


Even without any soert of electronic distortion control the Carl Zeiss lens performs well, with mimimal wide-angle distortion.


Centre sharpness is very good.


Corner sharpness is also excellent, with only a little chromatic aberration aroiund the highlight.


With the DRo feature turned off the shot lack dynamic range, with no shadow detail.


With the DRO turned on some shadow detail is returned.

There are internet shops that appear to be selling this camera for £75 less than the 'as reviewed' price. I'd suggest Google :).

This thing has a lens that starts at f 3.5 at best on 35mm as the wides setting available? Thats really poor. No wonder the ouptut is so bad. Even my Canon SD780 has a bit better than that. And its no superstar camera itself

Is it still over priced if I can buy it for £220?

I love this camera. But want to get the best bang for buck as the Yanks say!
