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 Cyber-shot DSC-V1

 

The Cyber-shot DSC-V1 is currently Sony's highest-specification 'compact' digital camera model and boasts a 1/1.8 inch five megapixel Super HAD CCD sensor, which is a typical size for this category of camera

The Sony DSC-V1 is a very good camera that could easily have been significantly better. Its compact, but boxy, lightweight design may not be to everyone's tastes, but image quality is mostly very good. If you seek unusual features, the laser...

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...

Sony borrowed a couple of low-light modes from its digital video camcorders (and from the Cyber-shot DSC-F717 still camera) for the DSC-V1, and they're extremely useful. In NightFraming mode, the camera emits a holographic laser to help it focus, set...
