Does anyone have a Sony DSC-T9 camera here?

As a few of you know my house was recently burglarized and one of the items stolen was my digital camera. The last three digital cameras i've had were Canons, (S410, SD300, & SD450) I liked them because they were small and easy to take club'n & to the bars, but i've always been disappointed with the image quality. I've noticed that the quality of my friend's Sony point and shoot cameras were always better. Noisy pictures seem like less of an issue with the sonys, so i've just ordered the DSC-T9 for a replacement. This model also has image stabilization, which was an issue for me with the Canons. I was wondering if anyone here has this camera or a similar model and if so what you're pros & cons about it? Thanks guys/gals

I'm really happy with my DSC-T1 still. Good luck and sorry to hear about the Burglary again.

I have a DSC T-5 for point and shoot, on the go applications. I think for outdoor applications this camera is pretty good but I find the flash weak. The battery life is very good and the start-up time is pretty fast. I also think the camera is very pretty and expensive looking for the money.

I wish I had bought the T9, only the T9 was yet to be introduced at the time. I believe the T9 is marginally thinner/lighter but the trump card on that model is the image stabilization and the more powerful flash (needed for effective indoor/night shots to reduce the red eye problems plaguing the T5, T7, T33 and T1 I believe).

The T-5 seems better built I might add. I didn't like the T7 for the left hand side orientation and there doesn't seem like much to differentiate the T5 and T7.

Out of the entire family, only the T-5 have the tripod mount below.

That's all the random thoughts on the subject I have in my mind...hope that helps a little.

i have the t1 & t7.

they are great camera's considering the size and the features they put in them.

the only annoyance is the red-eye.

this problem is supposed to have been addressed in the T9. i might pick one up once the prices come down a bit.

thats my 2

I'm planning on getting a T9 soon also. It was either the SD550 or the T9. I'm just waiting for a good deal from Dell.
