Sony Introduces Slim DSC-T700 and DSC-T77 Cyber-Shot Cameras

Sony Japan introduced the touch-screen DSC-T700 and DSC-T77 today, a refresh to their popular T-Series Cyber-Shot cameras. Both models will be released in Japan on September 5th and most likely worldwide soon thereafter. The DSC-T700 will be available in red, pink, gold, silver, and gray while the DSC-T77 will be available in black, silver, green, pink, brown. It is not immediately clear to Sony Insider whether these colors will be available worldwide, as it is common for Sony to release limited colors in different regions. Common features between the cameras are 10.1 effective megapixels (Super HAD CCD), Smile Shutter, Carl Zeiss “Barrio TESSA” 4x Optical Zoom, the high-quality image processing engine “BIONZ”, a revamped image stabilization system, and a variety of new software features.

The DSC-T77 is touted to be the worlds thinnest touchscreen point-and-shoot camera at 13.9mm with 4x optical zoom and optical-based image stabilization. The body is made of stainless steel, common to the T-Series, and has a 3 inch TFT LCD. 15mb of built in memory is included, which seems rather unimpressive but most likely a necessary limitation due to the extremely small size of this device. With Memory Stick Duo cards at such a low price these days, it should only take another $40 USD to get 4GB of storage space.

The DSC-T700 is truly an interesting specimen that should bode quite well for Sony as it has 4GB of included storage space and a goregous 3.5 inch touchscreen. According to the Sony Japan press release, this camera will have 921,000 effective pixels (compared to the 230k on the DSC-T77) on the viewing screen, which is extremely high for a camera of this size and should make it very easy to get the perfect shot.

There are so many cool features – anti-blink functionality that takes two shots at once and will warn if both shots have people guilty of blinking; a superb search system in-camera by event, date, smile or face, including children and infants displayed in calendar or chronological views. Here are some more examples of the features these cameras include:

Bionz image processing -

Enhanced Daytime and Nighttime shooting -

Easy scene selection and an all new food shooting mode -

Scrapbook -

..and more that is definitely worth reading about. Check out the rest at Sony Japan’s Official Press Release for the DSC-T700 and DSC-T77. Sony America has caught up and now has an official press release.

The DSC-T700 will sell for $400 USD, while the DSC-T77 will go for $300 USD.

    A good product from Sony. One of the most draw back in cameras is its size and weight. However, this camera has overcome these troubles. Even more it has an inbuilt memory card is an additional advantage. A good camera and everyone should buy.

    The look very good. I am almost tempted to step away from my general rule to only consider Canon and Nikon for camera’s.

    I've owned a Sony W-80 for several years and it's the best camera I've ever had. We have taken picture-perfect photos with it under every conceivable circumstance and have never been disappointed. I'm looking closely at the new Sony DSC T-700 and it's hard to believe that Sony has put so much into such a small frame. I am waiting to check one out when they're released.
