I'd avoid all of the T series Sony models if you need a good flash, depending on what you mean by a good flash.

Their maximum range is around 6 to 8 feet, depending on how much optical zoom you're using. So, you'll need to be very close to your subject.

If this is not a problem (short flash range), then they may work fine for you. All of the T series models are better for outdoor versus indoor use (but the same thing applies to many other subcompact cameras, too).

Did you read the reviews here? They go into some of the differences between them, and what's *better* for one user may not be better for another.

Each user will have preferences in what they want in a camera, just like buyers of vehicles may like one similar modelmore than another.

You'll see some of the differences pointed out on this page:

Sony DSC-T7 Review Conclusion

Quote:
Start by comparing our Sample Photos, where you will find a link to comparable images of some of our standard subjects taken with each of the three under identical conditions. There are differences between the three cameras:
  • The T5 is the only one equipped with a tripod mount [/*]
  • The T7 has a slightly more powerful flash [/*]
  • The T33 is the only one with Speed Burst continuous capture [/*]
  • The T7 is the lightest and smallest (by fractions of an ounce or inch) [/*]
  • The T7's rear controls are left-oriented [/*]
  • The T5 and T7 are more susceptible to lens smudging [/*]
  • The T33's red eye reduction is less effective [/*]
  • The T33 produces warmer results [/*]
  • The T33's LCD viewfinder provides less "gain-up" of the live image in dim lighting [/*]
At an MSRP of $349, the T33 and T5 are a better value than the $499 T7, but you can't go wrong with any of these three marvels of miniaturization from Sony.

Samit: You should check out the Olympus C5500. It is also 5 MP, but with a 5x zoom, a viewfinder as well as LCD, AA batteries, a much stronger flash than the Sony, and it is priced less than the Sony.

samit,

You seem to be expecting a lot from a pocket camera. I'd like to have a camera the size of a credit card that performs like a DSLR, but I don't think anyone has made one yet. I'm assuming you're restricting yourself to a pocket cam, since you were interested in the T5 and T7, and disinterested in the C5500 due to its size. I'm not sure if any existing pocket cam meets all of your criteria. However, the new Fuji Z2, which is due to be released in November, might cover just about everything except "good" zoom. I'm not sure what you consider "good", but the Z2 only has a 3X...is that good? If you need more than that, forget my suggestion.
