Thin, Sleek And Cool
About the size of a credit card and just 7Ã²8 inches thin, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T5 digital camera still manages to pack in a lot of features. With a 5-megapixel sensor and a 3x Carl Zeiss optical zoom lens, the camera also includes a large 2.5-inch LCD screen for easy viewing and editing of your images. Ten Scene modes help you select the proper exposure for various lighting situations, and a Handshake Alert lets you know if you're unsteady. The DSC-T5 is available in red, black, silver and gold. List Price: $349. Contact: Sony, (800) 222-SONY, www.sony.com.
