About Sony

Take your pictures further with the hot new Cyber-Shot T99 digital camera. Capture vast landscapes in Sweep Panorama and view them on a beautiful 3.0"(diag.) touch screen. Get better group shots with a 25mm wide angle lens andget the best shot with iAuto Mode, Smile Shutter and Soft Skin.

Ultra-wide, 265-degree Panoramic Shots
Sweep Panorama Mode reaches beyond the traditional wide angle lenses to let you capture expansive, breathtaking shots of landscapes or skyscrapers. Just press the shutter and shoot the scene with a sweeping motion. The camera does the rest.

Touch 'n' View
No more fussing with tiny buttons. Just tap the large, 3.0" (diag.) touch screen display to review your shots in vivid color and ultra-sharpcontrast.

It's All About the Lens
The high-performance Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® 4x optical zoom lens brings distant subjects closer for video recording as well as for outdoor, sports, and travel photos, and Close Focus shoots close-ups up to just under 1/2" from the subject. A wide angle of 25mm equivalent wide-angle lens allows you to take wider shots of the scene or group in crowded spaces.

Goodbye Blurry Photos
Don't let a not-so-steady hand prevent you from capturing the moment. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization uses a built-in gyro sensor to detect camera shake and automatically compensates to help prevent blur without sacrificing image quality.

Shoot Movies in HD
Nothing recreates the moment like razor-sharp, high definition video. Your movies will look stunning on YouTube and similar sites thanks to the 720p high-definition MPEG4 recording format. Record up to 29 minutes (or up to 2GB) per movie in 720p format.

A Smarter Auto Mode
Unlike traditional auto mode, Intelligent Auto (iAuto) mode thinks for you recognizing scenes, lighting conditions and faces and automatically adjusts the settings for you. The results are clear images, faces with natural skin tone and less blur.
