Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1

 

The 10-megapixel, 5X-optical-zoom (24mm to 120mm) Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 ($330 as of 3/8/2010) is among the first pocket cameras to offer Sony's redesigned, low-light-optimized Exmor R sensor. Those low-light chops are the marquee feature of this very...

Superb image quality, especially in low light ; Very compact size ; Useful modes for low-light shots and panoramas ; Very good battery life

Pricey for the lack of full manual controls ; Buttons are a bit small

The small-but-skilled Cyber-shot WX1 takes phenomenal low-light shots and easy panoramic images, making it a superb compact camera for anyone without giant hands.

Sony's WX1 compact point-and-shoot uses innovative image processing to produce impressive results.

Compact body. f/2.4 lens enables fast shutter speeds in low light. Fantastic low-light performance. Fast capture speed. Shoots 720p HD video.

Noticeable image blooming in bright light. Limited connectivity options.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 (Black) review

 

Good low-light shooting without help from a flash is a rarely attained goal in the world of compact cameras. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 does it with three of the company's own components: a new sensor design, a high-end lens, and a fast image...

Well-designed; several fun, useful features; good low-light and overall performance.

Mixed photo quality.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 is a great, fast-performing snapshot camera that falters on photo quality.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 Review

 

The Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 is the latest addition to Sony's extensive range of stylish compact digital cameras. The WX1 isn't just another incremental update, though, because it features Sony's brand new 10 megapixel "Exmor R" back-illuminated CMOS image...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 offers the same focus on image quality rather than simply increasing the megapixel count as its sister model, the TX1, with more conventional controls and a cheaper price-tag. Sony's new Exmor-R sensor certainly delivers the...

Review: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 digital camera

 

The small-but-skilled Cyber-shot WX1 takes phenomenal low-light shots and easy panoramic images, making it a superb compact camera for anyone without giant hands.

Rather than forcing the shooter to boost ISO equivalency in order to take a brightly exposed photo in low-light situations without a flash, the WX1's Handheld Twilight mode snaps up to six shots at different exposure settings in rapid succession, then...

Cyber-shot DSC-WX1

 

($349) is an ultra-compact, point-and-shoot camera that uses a new "back-illuminated" CMOS sensor, which promises better higher sensitivity and less noise than traditional CCDs. Throw in a wide and fast 5X zoom lens, HD movie recording, and a fair...

Modest improvement at middle ISOs over conventional sensors ; 5X, 24 - 120 mm lens in an ultra-compact body ; Lens is faster than average at wide-angle ; Optical image stabilization ; Snappy performance, great burst mode ; Intelligent Auto mode picks a...

Heavy noise reduction and lots of shadow noise at base ISO ; Significant blurring in corners (and sometimes edges) of frame ; Camera tends to overexpose; colors can sometimes be drab ; Redeye a problem, though you can remove it in playback mode ; Lens...

In the end, the Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 just didn't do it for me. I like its performance, well-implemented face and smile detection system, cool sweep panorama feature, and HD movie mode. However, the WX1's disappointing image quality and so-so ergonomics...

The small-bodied Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 from Sony packs a punch with a huge feature set, including a lightning fast image processor, wide-angle aperture, and a 10.2 megapixel CMOS sensor. You also get 720p high-definition video capture and TV connectivity...

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX1 Digital Camera Review

 

There's almost nothing bad to say about Sony's Cyber-Shot DSC-WX1. This stylish and affordable unit is as easy to use as it is extremely compact and its tiny size denies the powerful internal back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor that helps the WX1...
