As well as being compared against other compacts, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T99 is also often compared to ultra compacts, super zooms and travel zooms. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T99's top rivals come from Sony (such as the Cybershot DSC-TX55 and the Cyber-shot DSC-TX20) and Canon (such as the ELPH 100 HS and the PowerShot SX50 HS)

compared toCompact competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Sony DSC-T99 compared to other compact competitors include: it has a much wider wide angle lens (25 mm vs 35 mm), has a touch screen, is newer (july 2010 vs august 2007), is slightly lighter (121 g vs 181 g) and is slightly less expensive ($158.57 vs $599.99).

However, on average it has a slightly narrower aperture (f/3.5 vs f/2.8), is slightly larger (compact (102×58×29 mm) vs super compact (94×59×20 mm)), doesn't shoot as fast continuously (0.7 fps vs 10 fps), has a CCD-family sensor (CCD vs CMOS) and is thicker (1.1" vs 0.8").
