Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX50 review:

 

These days, there's not a lot of love for small point-and-shoots that don't have long zoom lenses or big image sensors. That's understandable since a 5x zoom such as the one on the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX50 doesn't provide that much more range than a...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX50 offers excellent features for automatic snapshots and speedy shooting performance, and nice photo and video quality for its class.

The WX50's controls might be too small for some users and its photos aren't sharp enough for pixel peepers.

The tiny Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX50 is a lot of camera for the money, with solid shooting performance, and good photo and movie quality.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX50 ( Black)

 

However, in picture and video quality it's still better than a smartphone because of things like a bright f2.6 25mm wide-angle lens with optical image stabilization and Sony's Exmor R BSI (backside-illuminated) CMOS sensor and Bionz image processor. It...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX50

 

The miniscule WX50 and WX70 pack a lot of features into such a tiny package. Both models come with a top-of-the-line backside-illuminated 16 megapixel CMOS sensor, which promises very good low-light image quality and fast operation. When we say fast,...

not geeky enough

 

I love the camera. It's with me always. I love its small size. I love its low-light sensitivity. I'm impressed by the way it takes multiple images in some modes and recombines them for enhanced dynamic range. I went head-to-head with a friend comparing...

great in low light, fast exposures, HDR, small! inexpensive

no time-exposure; no manual control; dumbed-down color control

Not up to 2012 Image quality standards

 

Was eagerly waiting for this camera, great specs and features and with a decent price. While all the features worked as advertised: panorama, 1080i video, color isolation, etc., the main purpose of the camera (taking pictures) seem to have been forgotten.

lightweight, easy to use, panorama sweep, great video

image quality is terrible for a camera with specs like these
