Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 review

 

Premium compact with catwalk looks but a serious feature set that belies its beauty

Price, feature set and build wise the Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 falls between purely ‘auto everything’ pocket snapshots and premium, enthusiast targeted models such as Panasonic’s peerless Lumix LX5. Though the accent here is on fun rather than manual...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10

 

Updating last year's WX5, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 is around £50 cheaper than its near numerical doppelganger in the current waterproofed DSC-TX10, though it's unable to withstand the wet and the cold in the same way. Both cameras share a 16.2...

High quality construction, lashings of style, feature packed thus offering a degree of future proofing, good quality results in daylight and low light with minimal user effort required

Lack of decent handgrip, some extras verge on the gimmicky

Offering brains as well as beauty, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 falls between your auto everything snapshot and enthusiast-targeted premium compacts such as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 , Canon PowerShot S95 et al. It offers a best of both worlds,...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 (Black) review

 

The Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 is somewhat of an oddball camera in the current Cyber-shot lineup. It could almost be an enthusiast compact or at least it's as near to one than any other small Sony point-and-shoot. That's mainly because it has a 7x, f2.4-5.9,...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 has lots of fun and useful shooting modes and fast shooting performance packed into a small body.

The WX10's photos are soft, smeary, and noisy when viewed at full size and its controls may be too small for some users.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 has all the right features, but its photos aren't as sharp as the rest of the package.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 review

 

With a body measuring about the width and height of a stack of business cards, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 point-and-shoot camera packs a surprising amount of features into a slight frame.

As a truly pocketable camera, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 stands out for its 7x optical-zoom lens and its unique modes for low-light shots, panorama images, and 3D stills. Shortcomings include its small buttons, lack of image sharpness and very...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10

 

With a body measuring about the width and height of a stack of business cards, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 point-and-shoot camera ($280 as of May 4, 2011) packs a suprising amount of features into a slight frame. It offers not only (very limited)...

Creative shooting modes and 1080i, 60-fps video ; Ultraportable size with 7X-optical-zoom lens

Small and finicky control buttons ; Images lack sharpness

The ultracompact Cyber-shot WX10 packs a big punch--including a 7X zoom lens, 3D shooting, and smooth 1080i video--into a small package. Image quality could be better, but you'll still find a lot to like.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX10 Review

 

Sony has created an impressive ultra-compact digicam that is blazing fast. The WX10 boasts a vast array of exposure settings and options, whether fully automatic or manual, along with some one of a kind 3D and Panorama type modes. While we did find a...

Metal body is stylish and well built ; Robust shooting performance; including burst mode ; Various 3D modes, including a Tilt mode that gives you a 3D feel by tilting the camera in playback; reminiscent of old baseball cards ; Convenient mode dial and...

High levels of noise at all ISO settings; can be seen indoors and out when pixel peeping ; Zoom takes some practice to get precise framing ; When switching modes, it is slow because it gives you a brief description; only pressing the 'select' button...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 Review

 

The Sony DSC-WX10 is a stylish new compact camera with a vast array of advanced features. The WX10 has a 16.2 megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor for better low noise performance, 1080i Full HD movie recording, 7x optical G Lens with a 24mm wide-angle...

Given that at the end of the day this is basically a point and shoot camera pure and simple, Sony has packed a lot of functionality into the WX10 that should save those who want to occasionally do something other than pointing and shooting getting...
