Oh, woe. Woe. It’s cold outside and the skies are grey. You’re several pounds heavier following the Christmas splurge. And worst of all, you’re back at work, where everyone else is JUST as miserable as you. January ain’t fun.
This is exactly why skiing was invented. Well, one of the reasons, anyway. Getting away for a long weekend crashing down the slopes before drinking all night and snogging posh men called Rory is just the antidote to the seasonal slump.
Along with toasty ski-pants, cool shades and a gallon of sun-block, a decent digital camera is an essential accessory if you’re heading off on a skiing or snowboarding holiday this month.
Partly for proof that, yes, you did manage to stand up on a pair of skis. At least for a few seconds. And also to capture the thrilling scenery (note: this means the actual scenery, not the dancefloor of your resort’s most debauched club).
Meet the Sony Cyber-shot T10, which combines style and power in a cam that you won’t be ashamed to be seen with on the slopes. Its 7.2 effective megapixels and 3x optical zoom will provide snaps as clear as the winter air, while its light weight ensure it won’t slow down your slaloming fun.
Cold hands? Don’t worry, built-in anti-blur technology eliminates the dreaded camera shake, while you can expect 250 shots from a single battery charge, ensuring you won’t be stuck at the top of a mountain staring a Yeti in the eye, but no juice left to capture it.
There’re nine pre-set Scene Selection modes too, including a Snow mode that’s made for these situations, ensuring the snow is as powdery white in your pics as it is in real life. Don’t take pictures of yellow snow though, it’s not nice.
Plus, for those daredevil stunts (i.e. your friends trying to jump over a small hillock and landing on their noses), the T10 is as good for shooting video, even when the lighting conditions aren’t perfect.
