DSC-T7 : Blurred images ?

Greetings, I'm interested in the DSC-T7 as a secondary camera , and was wondering if [for the current owners]; how frequent do you get blurred shots? I played with a friend's DSC-T1, and I noticed a good portion of photos came out slightly blurred. Does this happen frequent on the T7? opinions? :)

Re: DSC-T7 : Blurred images ?

I DO own the DSC-T7.... & it takes the lousiest pictures of all my cameras. A huge # of the pix I take are complete blurs. (& my subjects are children... who run, jump & squirm.) If my subjects move- the shots dont come out. Also- the manual is no help at all. The ONLY thing I like about this camera is the fact that it easily fits into a pocket or small purse. But- what good is carrying a worthless camera? My cell phone takes better shots. (& why such a tiny zoom???)

Re: DSC-T7 : Blurred images ?

I own an old Sony P51 2Megapixel camera purchase a while back in the USA. Since then I have owned an f717 (world's best digicam ever?) and a Sony P120 in black. Only the P51 produces perfect shots nearly every time, the only blurred ones happening in the dark if the focus lamp cannot lock on. Even the wonderful f717 produced a huge number of blurred images, even in broad daylight. As posted a while back on this forum, I believe this to be a uniquely Sony problem and possibly (as per other reply to your posting) something to do with the shutter speeds Sony select, but also (in my opinion) due to a flaw in the focusing mechanisms. The ONLY solution I have found to these problems is to use a tripod or other (very) stable surface, even in daylight. This even helps with the focusing because the camera can lock on from a static position. I love the design and usability of Sony digicams, but have finally given up because of the number of blurred images (which never occured with any of my 35MM film cameras) and am going to buy a Konica Minolta 7D. And being Sony and KM are (thankfully!) going to work together, maybe whatever they produced, because with Sony's excellent design skills and KM's Anti-Shake technology, we will end up with the perfect camera! To quote Austin Powers, "Yeh Baby!"

Re: DSC-T7 : Blurred images ?

I don't own a T7,but I have the P150 and S40. All these small Sony digicams have something in common;Sony uses 1/40 as the default flash shutter speed in low light conditions,while other makers use 1/60.You are more likely to get a blurry picture compared to other digicams you have previously used,unless you hold the camera steady (two hands). The other thing about these cameras is their lack of weight, coming in at a mere 134 g/4.7 oz. Light weight means you must hold the camera steady (two hands) or risk camera movement when you press the shutter. Again, the tendency with a small,light weight camera is to hold it with one hand while you take a picture,this leads to blurry pictures. The review for this camera is positive; a "Dave's Pick." - Just remember the flash range is only 5ft / 1.6m. http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/T7/T7A.HTM

Re: CCD Sensor


Base on my experience with Sony CCD's, if it was the CCD, you would have NO picture. Odds are that the problem is the auto-focus circuit or the focus motor/gear. Either way it's highly unlikely that a shop could fix it, let alone trying it yourself. It's usually easier to just replace the Lens Block, but unfortunately, that usually runs around $150....for the PART.

DSC-T7 Magnify Mode


Hello, Don't mix magnifier mode and expanded focus mode. Magnifier mode is simply a short AF range operating mode, like a kinda super-macro. Whether you selected mag/macro/normal, the camera operates always same except that the focussing range limits are changed accordingly by the S/W. The lens itself is capable of focussing from 1cm to infinity anyway. Expanded focus is used on some still and video cameras to assit manual focus because the LCD's resolution is lower than the CCD's. It can be seen as a workaround for the lack of optical reflex viewfinder (Sony cams ar not dSLRs, including HDR-FX1!). So the center area of the pic is "digitally zoomed" to make sure you can adjust a sharp focus of the point of interest in your frame. However it has nothing to do with macro shooting, and works at any distance within the lenses focussing range. Hope having helped

DSC-T7 Blurriness


Try this test: Mount the camera on a tripod or set it on a secure base and use the self timer to trip the shutter. Doing this will totally eliminate any possibility of camera shake causing blurriness. If the picture is still blurred then there might be a problem with the AF but if it isn't blurred then the problem is either camera shake OR subject movement (or both).

DSC-T7 - Noise in image


No, not really. For a digicam, it has simply amazingly low noise and a very sharp image. Your shot was shot at ISO320 - there's naturally going to be a little noise in the image. Even DSLRs when shot at higher ISOs like that tend to pick up a little bit of noise. Try shooting at lower ISOs like 64 or 100 to keep noise levels to a minimum. Even in your pic, I didn't see any noise in the shadows, looks quite good.

T7 video


Hello The zoom does not work on the T7 while you video, you have to zoom first and then start to video, then it is fixed at that zoom setting. Other than that, the video is pretty good, I have taken video clips up to about 5mins (but in theory you can go up to the limit of the mem card and battery - battery from full is about 40 mins from the top of my head and my 512mb mem card could do about 30 mins on best quality) The sound is good, and the picture is pretty good, but obviously there is no 'flash' function, so you are looking at daytime or well lit video only. One thing is that you do need a steady hand, because the unit is so small (a great benefit most of the time) you do get a fair amount of camera shake if you do not have a very steady hand... usually the morning after the night before for me! :o) I have been pretty happy with it a a fun video accessory, but if you want the camera for that as a main use, I would look around.
