Sony Cyber-Shot N1

Digital Photography Interface
24 August 2006
  • Conclusion: The Sony N1 is a fantastic camera. It has two things which may fool you but the result is always otherwise and great: 1. The 8 megapixel imager produces surprisingly good images (at ISO 800 too!) and 2. the great 3 inch touch screen is sharp and viewable... and the N1 has above average battery life even with that LCD. The other versatile features include a powerful flash, some manual controls, an excellent movie mode and enhanced playback features.
  • Pros: High resolution sensor with ISO 800, Good battery life, Large 3 inch LCD (It's a touch screen too!), Limited but nevertheless useful manual mode, Fairly powerful flash range, Unlimited VGA 30 FPS movie mode, Fancy playback and slideshow features, Good image quality with useable high ISO shots
  • Cons: Slow and limited continuous shooting, No white balance or manual focus controls, Overall performance could be faster and better

Camera Test: Sony Cyber-Shot DSC N1

Pop Photo
10 August 2006
  • 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: While many compact cameras seem content to deliver 5Mp, the new Sony DSC-N1 opts for an 8.1Mp sensor, which is enough to put some D-SLRs in the shade. Indeed, it can churn out images with a whopping 3,264 x 2,448 pixels. It's not just the image sensor that's big on numbers, either. Around the back there's an outsized 3.0-inch LCD, which offers yet more trickery.

  • 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. They can be viewed individually or in slideshows complete with music on the DSC-N1's huge 3-inch LCD display.
  • 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 feature, plus the ability to "paint" over images, Nice movie mode, Great battery life, Support for USB 2.0 High Speed protocol
  • 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

[ REVIEW—SONY CYBERSHOT DSC–N1 ]

DPexpert
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. In situations where the screen is visible it is an excellent high resolution display. All shooting parameters are set via the screen by touch.
  • 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 reliable. Photos taken in open shade tend to yellow/red. We found that by reducing Saturation and Contrast the orange cast can be cut back. In fact using the low settings seems to i...

  • Summary: A pricey camera that offers never before seen technology, but ultimately unless you are a touch screen fanatic, it isn't worth the price tag.
  • Pros: Touch screens are cool, robust functionality, big screen
  • Cons: Poor image quality, poor battery life, screen is of low viewing quality

PhotoReview

  • Summary: A superb touch-screen monitor and built-in photo storage give this pocketable camera wide appeal. Imaging performance is above average and colours are accurately recorded.Sony's recently-released Cyber-shot DSC-N1 camera breaks new ground in the slimline digicam market because it allows users to shoot and display pictures in a totally new - and remarkably engaging - way.

Érintőképernyős fényképező a Sonytól - DSC-N1 gépteszt

FotoOnline
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. A 8 megapixeles érzékelővel ellátott termék legfontosabb jellemzője a hátlapon lévő hatalmas érintőképernyő. Ennek használata során tetszett a jó felbontás és a nagy méret, sokaknak azonban szokatlan lehet az, hogy kézzel kell tapogatni a kijelzőt.
