The digital camera is one gadget which keeps reaching new milestones before you even have the chance to say ‘cheese’. The latest model of Sony’s highly popular line, the Cyber-shot point-and-shot digital camera, will bring even more smiles to your photos, literally.

The DSC-T200 has all the standard features of the digital camera such as face recognition, red-eye reduction, and image stabilisation. In addition, the increased image resolution from 7.2 megapixels to 8.1 megapixels greatly improves picture quality.
