Holiday Gift Guide 2008: Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T700

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T700If you want to pick up a camera for your loved one that is as much a fashion statement as it is a photography device, you’ve gotta consider the fashionista-friendly Cyber-Shot DSC-T700. It’s not all about the looks, though, because this camera packs in a bunch of features. Like what? How about anti-blink and Smile Shutter technology? It also features a 3.5-inch ultra-high resolution touchscreen display, shoots at up to 10.1 megapixels, and includes 4GB of internal memory. It also includes the Picture Motion Browser software package, but seriously, who’s gonna use that? The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T700 retails for $399.99, but on Amazon we were able to find substantial discounts, depending on which color you were interested in:

There’s also a gold version, but we didn’t include that one since there was no discount available on it. Definitely a good gift for the woman in your life.


Sony Recalls Cybershot Casings

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Cameras, Corporate News

 DSC-T5 CybershotSony is yet again going through another recall. It seems that the casing on some of its DCS-T5 Cybershot digital cameras might peel and/or warp creating a sharp edge. The company has offered to replace it at no charge, including shipping, for the recall of approximately 416,000 cams sold in Japan, the U.S., Europe, and China. Check the bottom of the camera if you think yours might be suspect and look for serial numbers between 3500001 and 3574100.
Sony first noticed the defect one month after its Sept. 2005 release, when 30 Japanese consumers reported small cuts and scratches. Our only question to Sony is why it took the company so long to get to a total recall of the defective parts?
