The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T99 is one of three compact digital cameras (DSC-T99, DSC-TX9, DSC-WX5) released in summer 2010 as fresh additions to the Cyber-shot series. Though the DSC-T99 offers the best imaging at 14.1 megapixels, it’s the only one among the three to be limited to just 720p, 30fps HD film capture (versus 1080p full HD). It does however feature an Underwater Sweep Panorama mode for extra-wide, underwater image capture. Additional features include a Carl Zeiss Lens with a wide 4x optical zoom, Optical SteadyShot image stabiliation for reduced blurring, face detection technology, intelligent scene recognition technology, and much more.
