The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T30 builds on that heritage, as an update to the existing DSC-T9 model. The T9 was the first Sony camera to feature an image-stabilized lens branded with the famous Carl Zeiss name, and the T30 shared that same lens. The T30 couples this with a new 7.2 effective megapixel CCD imager, with a higher maximum ISO sensitivity of 1000.
There’s also a larger 3.0″ LCD display versus the 2.5″ type in the six-megapixel T9, and a new NP-FR1 InfoLithium battery that should offer almost double the battery life of that camera (420 shots instead of 240).
The Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar stabilized lens has a 35mm effective focal length range of 38 – 114mm. Other features include shutter speeds from 30 to 1/1000 second, a choice of Multi-pattern, Center-weighted, or Spot metering, five white balance presets, 10 scene modes, USB and video connectivity, and both Memory Stick Duo / Pro Duo storage coupled with 58MB of built-in memory.
