Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1

 

We take a look at Sony's latest high-tech ultra-compact

Very good video and audio quality ; Excellent image quality ; Advanced features

Small controls ; Difficult to hold securely ; Plain design

The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX1 is exactly what a luxury ultra-compact should be; a tiny techno-toy crammed with all the latests gadgets and gizmos, with fast performance, plenty of clever features and decent picture quality to match. It may look a bit...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 review

 

Those low-light chops are the marquee feature of the very compact Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 camera, which excels in dark situations thanks to its unique shooting modes.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 does cost a bit much for a camera with no manual shutter or aperture controls. However, for the price, you get a very compact, very stylish camera that takes excellent photos in dark settings, and its unique in-camera modes...

Packed with smart innovations to boost image quality, but they could do with a better base to build upon.

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 – WX1B

 

The DSCWX1 is a stylish professional performance digital camera. Giving outstanding performance and the best image quality possible even if your not a professional photographer.

If your looking for a high quality digital camera then Sony’s cyber-shot DSC-WX1 & WX1B are highly recommended for both image quality and performance. Being very well priced proves that you can still get a great picture without buying a very expensive...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 review

 

The 10-megapixel, 5X-optical-zoom (24mm to 120mm) Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 is among the first pocket cameras to offer Sony's redesigned, low-light-optimised Exmor R sensor.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1

 

It's small with some smart technology, but at £300 it doesn't deliver all it should in terms of features and performance.

All in all, the DSC-WX1 is a bit of a curate's egg. You get a dinky camera and some nice features like, Sweep Panorama and high-speed, full resolution continuous mode, but at £300, its performance is a bit lacking. We also think Sony should swallow a...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1

 

Sony throws all its auto technology at this latest compact

The technology here is great and the same as in the TX1, but packaged in a more conventional manner, which depends on your personal taste. It would benefit from more bulk on the buttons
