Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-T5 is yet another exciting subcompact digital camera, with a slim profile and a wealth of features.
I love the return of the big sliding lens cover, something the T33 lacks. The DSC-T5 has good image quality, with good color, and high resolution. Its image sharpness and noise levels aren't quite up to the level of the best full-sized 5-megapixel cameras out there, but they're good for a subcompact model. We did find that the lens quality was better than the T33 we reviewed.
Relative to competing full-sized digicams the T5 does have limited low-light capability and limited flash power, but that too is expected in a camera of this size. The DSC-T5's flexible exposure modes and features make the camera able to handle just about any situation. The camera's light weight and portable size are perfect for travel and for easy everyday carry. Though we haven't seen much change from the T1 to the T5, it's still a very impressive camera in a very small package, earning it a Dave's Pick.
