Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX9 (Red)


The Cyber-shot WX9 is Sony's entry point for getting an Exmor R backside-illuminated CMOS sensor . These sensors, which provide faster shooting performance and better low-light quality, were previously used only in Sony's higher-end Cyber-shots; the...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX9 offers excellent features for automatic snapshots and speedy shooting performance, and nice photo and video quality for its class.

The WX9's controls might be too small for some users and its photos aren't sharp enough for pixel peepers.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX9 is a lot of camera--with solid shooting performance and photo and movie quality--for the money.

You've heard of 16-megapixel DSLRs—how about a 16.2MP point-and-shoot? That's what Sony just introduced and the WX9 not only takes 4608 x 3456 pixel photos, but Full HD AVCHD videos which is a very unique combination. Let's see if this is finally the...

Excellent 16MP stills ; Outstanding AVCHD videos ; Very good 3-inch LCD screen

Digital noise at ISO 800 and above ; No separate battery charger ; LCD brightness adjustment buried too deep in menus

The Sony DSC-WX9 is the best camera under $200 we have ever tested.

Sony Cyber-shot WX9


The Sony Cyber-shot WX9 is 16.2MP compact camera that fits somewhere in the middle of Sony's early-2011 lineup. The image sensor is Sony's rather impressive back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor, which is backed up by the power BIONZ image processor...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX9 is a great 16-megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS digital camera that doesn't cost much for what you get. It also is quite portable and offers 1080p HD video recording, but the controls are a little too small for some...

"Perfect camera for my teenage niece!"


I would recommend this camera to anyone looking to give a good gift and make anybody happy on their list this holiday season. Cyber shot DSC-wx9 is a perfect compact camera and it's simple to use which is nice because in todays technology driven world,...

It's a small camera to go anywhere. It has many functional settings for what all the teens like to do. It's a great value.

My only complaint is that it is tough to zoom in too far and get a great pic but they still come out pretty good.
