Question about Sony DSC-T7 Digital Camera

1 Answer

T7 video A colleague of mine is interested in a new digicam. He likes to take short video sequences and was wondering if the T7 features proper optical zoom with continuous auto-focus, auto-exposure while videoing? I know the first generations of digicams only allowed digital zoom and wouldn't change focus from the point at which one started filming. Also, any general experiences of video on the T7 - how long can one film etc?

Re: 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.

I DONT HAV A PROBLEM AS SUCH, I WAS INTERESTED IN BUYING 1 AND WAS WONDERING WAT IS DE PRICE OF A NEW 1


This is a 6 year old camera. You can get a new one from amazon.com for about $350 or a used one for about $120. Personally, I would use the $350 to get a brand new 2011 camera with all the new updated features.

I am unable to get sound when using camera in video mode. Can you please help?


Unfortunately the A410 was designed (believe it or not) without a microphone. Sadly it only takes video, but with no sound. Makes you wonder what was Canon thinking. But your camera does have an interesting side feature that many cameras do not, "Super Macro". With it you can take close-up pictures of even the tiniest objects (try taking a picture of a bug while in super macro, you'll be surprised what your camera can do in this mode).

Battery


To quote Imaging-Resouce.com: He only got about 100 minutes off his battery. Here's what he said: Slightly better than average battery life for a compact model, but think about buying a second battery anyway. The Canon Powershot SD200 uses a custom rechargeable LiIon battery for power, and uses a custom power adapter, so I couldn't perform my usual direct measurements of its power consumption, but did check how long it would run on a fully charged battery. Like most compact digicams, battery life on the SD200 is a little on the short side, with a worst-case run time (capture mode, with the LCD turned on) of 107 minutes by actual measurement. This is better than many compact and subcompact models, but I'd still strongly recommend purchasing a second battery along with the camera, and keeping it charged as a spare. (Digicam batteries always die at the worst possible times.)
I found this for cheap "Replacement Camera Battery for Canon Powershot SD200 " SKU NB4L103719 $5.42 + s/h at Become.com To increase battery life, turn off unnecessary features like any beep feature, reduce the picture review display time, etc. How many minutes are you getting out of it?

No sound on Video


Hi, am not that familiar with your brand/model of digicam, but if it is like with what I use, an Olympus, which can take 15 seconds video clip but there is really no sound. The video is just an added feature but sound recording is not included. Again am not so sure with your model. You can try checking the menu setting or have another look at the user's manual. Their site is http://www.vivitar.com/default.asp although could not find your model. Hope this be of some help. Kind regards.

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 - 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.

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
