Attractive design; useful feature set; fast performance.
Nearly too small; touch screen not for everyone; soft photos.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T77 is a fun, fast ultracompact, but it's almost too tiny for its own good.

The Sony Cyber Shot DSC-T77 is extremely slim and streamlined. The body is metal and has a nice quality feel to it. Most functions are accessed by a large touch lcd screen. This simplifies the look of the camera and eliminates buttons on the body of the camera. With a slide of the front shutter the camera quickly turns on. The camera works well in low light conditions and has a great color quality to the images. the camera uses an assist light to help with focus and a bright double flash for red eye reduction. All basic functions are fairly easy to access and use. This camera does have a 4x zoom which really comes in handy when you need to get closer. I usually use a Nikon D200 but always miss out on those surprise moments when the Nikon is not with me. This camera is ultra portable and with a 10.2 resolution you will get quality shots. Because of its size it has the potential to drop or slip from your grip. Overall this Sony is a great buy!
Sony’s Cyber-shot DSC-T77 is a slim 10.1 Megapixel compact with a 4x optically-stabilised lens and a 3in touch-sensitive widescreen display. Announced in August 2008, it’s the successor to the Cyber-shot T70. Sony’s kept the display, sliding front panel and minimal physical controls, but increased the resolution by two Megapixels, extended the zoom range from 3x to 4x, enhanced a number of the automatic settings, and slimmed the unit down to a mere 15mm thick.
The earlier T70 was popular with gadget-lovers who were drawn to the touch-sensitive controls and smile-shutter feature which actually waited until the subject looked sufficiently happy before automatically taking the shot. With the new T77, Sony’s further enhanced these features while adding a longer zoom and making the body even slimmer. As before though, the big question is whether the touch controls are a novelty or a genuine enhancement to the user interface. Find out in our review of the Cyber-shot T77 where we’ll test the new features and compare its image quality against key rivals in a similar price bracket.
Measuring 94x57x15mm and weighing 151g including battery, the Cyber-shot T77 looks roughly the same as its predecessor when viewed face-on, but is comfortably slimmer; indeed Sony claims it’s the thinnest camera to feature a 4x optical zoom range. It’s sufficiently slim to slip into almost any pocket, whether in skinny jeans or a shirt front; certainly you’ll hardly notice it in larger coat pockets.
Like other Cyber-shot T models, the T77 employs a front panel which slides up and down to power the camera on and off, along with protecting the lens when shut. It takes a little practice to do it quickly, but once learnt it shifts back and forth with a satisfying snap like a quality flip-phone.
The metal body and flip mechanism are well-built, but there’s little to hold onto in use. Like many of today’s compacts, there’s only a cross-hatched logo on the front for your finger to grip, although Sony’s cleverly written Cyber-shot vertically here to maximise its contact with your right middle finger. Round the back there’s a small metal plate with vertical ridges which act as a thumb rest. We found it quite hard to hold one-handed, and if you use both hands you have to be careful not to block the lens with one of your left fingers.
Ultimately while it’s not the easiest camera to hold, the T77 is certainly a stylish compact, With its slim dimensions and smart brushed-metal body available in five colours, it’s a head turner which attracted more attention than any other compact we tested at the same time.
Look around the body and you’ll find no doors hiding any ports. Instead like its predecessor, there’s a single proprietary connector on the underside of the camera. This in turn connects to an equally proprietary combined TV and USB cable – one’s supplied, but don’t lose it or you’re looking at buying a non-standard accessory. You can alternatively connect an optional Component video cable for making HD slideshows in the 1080i format.
Between this and a metal tripod thread is a compartment for the NP-BD1 Lithium Ion battery pack and a slot for Memory Stick Duo cards. Sony claims each charge is good for around 220 images.
I love the camera for it's size very slip and fits into the pocket is a 10.1 Megapixel compact with a 4x optically-stabilised lens.
The pictures are very sharp. touch-sensitive controls and smile-shutter feature which actually waited until the subject looked sufficiently happy before automatically taking the shot.

I've always liked the Sony Cybershot series. This camera has a a lot of features that come in handy. For example the smile detection; takes a picture automatically when people smile, its great for people who try to hide from the camera. The touch screen also makes it easier to find what you want faster. The slim look also makes it easier to carry around without making it uncomfortable.
I've used SLR cameras and this camera is almost like a portable version with the high quality 10.1 MP.
