11 Reasons Against

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 camera is 64%. That puts this Sony digital camera in the bottom 8% of all the similar spec digital cameras that were launched more than two years ago.

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The DSC-T99 does not have an image stabiliser. Most of the other digital cameras of a similar age and type to the DSC-T99 also do not have an image stabiliser.

We compared this camera to all the other digital cameras with an image stabiliser and we think the WB250[pl_2143032_price], or the DV151[pl_1589650_price] both from Samsung or the Sony DSC-HX200V[plb_2082742_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The DSC-T99 does not support Full HD video. Most of the other cameras that have been around for more than two years also do not support Full HD video.

It is worth also looking at other cameras which also support Full HD video including the DSC-HX200V[pl_2082742_price], or the NEX-3NL[pl_2618177_price] both from Sony or the Samsung WB250[plb_2143032_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The DSC-T99 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other digital cameras of this age and type also do not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of other cameras which also support WiFi connectivity which you might want to consider including the WB250[pl_2143032_price], or the DV151[pl_1589650_price] both from Samsung or the Sony ILCE-QX1[plb_2441785_price].

Does Not Support Video Recording

Like most of the other similar spec digital cameras that have been around for more than two years, the DSC-T99 does not support video recording.

We compared all the other cameras which also support video recording to this digital camera and we think the Samsung DV151[plb_1589650_price], or the Canon EOS 1D Mark III[plb_1036_price] is also worth considering.
