Excerpt: I bought this camera when it was too expensive, now having said that it is the camera that really helped me learn about photography again, so it was a very good investment. It is a great camera limited only by it's very small sensor.
Excerpt: Good for bright outdoors high contrast situation. Downhill in low contrast shade. Very bad for hi iso indoor no flash situation. The noise reduction blurred important details when the whole chin smeared with facial details joined to the neck. Useless for people shots.
Excerpt: I've been looking for years for a good point and shoot camera, one comparable to my old digital camera from 4-5 years ago. I haven't had any luck, because the newer cameras tend to be blurry, unsaturated, noisy - too many pixels, I think.
Excerpt: I'm very happy with my CX1. The high quality of design and construction is obvious. Everything about it is fast and responsive. The LCD screen is super sharp and the control buttons are solid, easy to use and understand.
Excerpt: I'm a Nikon DSLR user but am not impressed by their Coolpix range of cameras so when in the market for a 'point and shoot' camera I had a good look around the whole market. The CX1 had received excellent reviews (here in UK) and I was attracted by the styling and that amazing screen!
Excerpt: I bought the CX1 mainly for it's 120 frame per sec. speed. It had become my favourite camera, replacing the Pana LX3. The construction is excellent - would have been a 5 had the tripod socket been metal. Features, a 4.5 because I'd still wish I can set the shutter speed directly.
Excerpt: Same limitations as any small sensor camera, once you accept that though the CX1 shines. Its feature set, custimizations, and general usability are top notch. Combine that with great build, speed, and a best in class LCD its hard to beat as long as you don't want HD video.
Excerpt: Bought it to replace a R8 which was to slow focussing compared to the R3. Overall very handy, fast, interesting high iso b&w, simply fun to use. Set wheel to EASY if you give it to s/o for p&s, and be prepared that there are A LOT of things to play and try, so it will need some time to tweek all for...
