    I need help on deciding what camera to get. Ive narrowed it down to two, the Sony DSC-T99 or the Sony Cyber-Shot H55. I'm liking the black cameras. The prices for both are the same at walmart. Its just so hard to choose!! So thats why I came here, to ask my fellow chicken lovers for some suggestions and decision making help!

    I think that I would go for the Sony Cyber-shot H55

    I like the panoramic feature.

    I don't know. What did your mother do to you as a child? [​IMG]


    Please forgive me. it probably doesn't make any difference which camera you choose. So it becomes a einny mennie miney moe kind of game. I do know that it won't make a difference once you buy one.


    At least you have it down it to two cameras of the the same manufactures. I would pick the camera that was the last one released by the manufacture. That way I would know that I bought the latest technology that I could afford. Sony is a great brand. I have always been happy with their cameras., until I kill them of course. That's a different story.

    H55.

    Better optical zoom, and on some things, I prefer physical buttons. The T99 is mostly touch screen.

    The H55 just looks better built to me.

    Get which ever one has the best battery life, it is very annoying to have to change them out or recharge, i have 2 sony cameras and they have rechargeable batteries,i can take tons of photos before recharging.

    Sony's are wonderful camers all the way around.

    Good luck with your choice.

    I'm a big fan of the cybershot series. I have one that is about 7 or 8 years old and that thing is still going strong. I've passed it onto my mom since I've moved on to larger cameras!

    The cybershot has a better zoom, and looks like it will take better pictures over all. I think you would get more for your money by going with that camera.

    Best test to be sure - go to Walmart and take photos with each (w/o flash), then see how long it takes to take the next photo. This is recovery time and something not too many people think about until after they have bought the camera. I would go with which ever has the faster recovery time.

    Also take a photo with flash and see how long before you can take the next one.
