Camera Test: Sony Cyber-Shot DSC N1

Pop Photo
6 January 2007
  • Excerpt: Packing 8.1 megapixels and a Carl Zeiss 3x Vario-Tessar 2.8-5.4/7.9-33.7 zoom lens (38mm-114mm equivalent), the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-N1 puts a serious face forward. This solidly constructed brushed silver camera looks like a major player in the 8MP compact class.

  • Excerpt: At first glance the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N1 ($499) looks like another ultra-thin camera. But the N1 is more than just a camera: Sony has designed it to be both a camera and a portable photo viewer. The N1 can display up to 500 of your photos, organized in albums.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality, Stylish, compact metal body, Enormous LCD display (though see issue below), Impressive high ISO performance for a compact camera, Snappy performance in most areas, Some manual controls, AF-assist lamp; good low light focusing, Built-in photo album, Enhanced slideshow feat...
  • Cons: Redeye, Custom white balance is badly needed, Big LCD attracts fingerprints, Sluggish burst mode; LCD blacks out between shots, No optical viewfinder, Flimsy cover over memory card / battery compartment, Bundled software isn't the greatest, no Mac version

  • Summary: The Cyber-shot DSC-N1 is about the same size as a deck of playing cards and incorporates a high-performance, 8-megapixel digital camera, with a large, 3-inch, touch-screen LCD. The N1's album function automatically stores up to 500 of your favorite images in VGA resolution, and uses them to create...

Sony DSC N1

8 August 2014
  • Conclusion: The Sony DSC N1 is an expensive digital camera and the big question is what do you get for your money? The big innovation is the touch screen. This means that the number of buttons and controls on the back of the camera are greatly reduced. The LCD screen is also as big as you can get at 3".
  • Pros: Ease of use., Large screen for composing images, Shutter response times
  • Cons: New technology means high price

3 September 2006
  • Excerpt: 3.5 stars The is an 8.1 megapixel compact digital camera with a Zeiss 3X zoom lens (38–114mm film equivalent). Construction is metal and quality of design and construction is high. There is no optical viewfinder and the 7.5cm LCD is hard to see, even in overcast light.
  • Pros: Hidden behind the pointless technology of the Sony DSC–N1 is a fine camera. Resolved detail with the 8mp sensor and Zeiss lens is breathtaking. Exposure is always spot on and dynamic range is very good for a compact digital. Colour is generally good but auto-white balance is not completely reliab...

Érintőképernyős fényképező a Sonytól - DSC-N1 gépteszt

14 January 2009
  • Conclusion: A jelenleg bruttó 107 ezer forintért kapható Sony DSC-N1-ről tehát összegzésképpen elmondható, hogy egy stílusos, minőségi kialakítású ultrakompakt fényképezőgép, mely egyedi tulajdonságokkal rendelkezik.
