Sony Cyber-shot DSC-V1

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-V1 offers Sony's legendary quality and lots of features, yet it's light on ergonomics, performance, and image quality.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-V1

 

Live histogram in record mode ; First-rate focusing system ; Great movie mode ; Hot-shoe and add-on lens support ; Well-designed metal body ; Full manual controls

Software not OS X native ; Noise levels higher than they should be ; Movie mode’s low frame rate means choppy video ; Colors seem dull ; User's left hand can obscure the flash, preventing it from operating ; Red-eye ; Poor battery life compared with...

Sony Cyber Shot DSC-V1 review

 

Sony Cyber Shot DSC-V1

Very compact for a full-featured prosumer model; great image quality; fast overall performance.

A few design flaws; no RAW file support; no ISO setting lower than 100.

This compact prosumer Sony offers amateur photographers a lighter burden, first-rate pictures, and pleasing performance.

Sony DSC-V1 Digital Camera Camera

 

WHAT'S HOT: Want a high-resolution camera, but don't want to lug the equivalent of a small brick? The Cyber-shot DSC-V1 is one of the lightest, most compact 5-megapixel models we've tested. It's also among the easiest to use: The designers logically...

If you're looking for a high-end point-and-shoot, the DSC-V1 is a good bet. It's not quite as sophisticated as, say, the Nikon Coolpix 5400, but it's much easier to use.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-V1 Digital Camera; 5-Mp Prosumer Camera With 4x Carl Zeiss Zoom, Plus Exclusive Night Shooting Modes

 

On sunny days and in cloudy/bright conditions, the DSC-V1 produced beautiful images, in its default settings, with fairly accurate color balance, and very high color saturation, contrast and sharpness.
