11 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

On average, based on nine expert reviews from sites including PhotographyBlog.com, Expert Reviews, Cameras.co.uk and Digicam Buyer.co.uk the average expert rating of this Sony camera is 64 out of 100. If all the cameras of a comparable age and type are ranked by average expert review score then this camera is in the bottom 11%.

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The Sony DSC-T99 does not have an image stabiliser, although it is worth noting that most of the other digital cameras of a similar age and type to the DSC-T99 also do not have an image stabiliser.

It is worth also looking at alternative cameras which also have an image stabiliser including the DV151, or the WB250 ($311.99) both from Samsung or the Sony DSC-HX200V which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

Like most of the other digital cameras that were released more than two years ago, the Sony DSC-T99 does not support Full HD video.

We compared all the other digital cameras which also support Full HD video to this digital camera and we think the DSC-HX200V, or the NEX-3NL both from Sony or the Samsung WB250 ($311.99) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other comparable spec cameras that have been available for more than two years, the DSC-T99 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other cameras which also support WiFi connectivity to this camera and we think the DV151, or the WB250 ($311.99) both from Samsung or the Sony ILCE-QX1 ($498.00) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
