Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 is one of the first 3D digital cameras on the market, and it can work in conjunction with a Sony BRAVIA 3D TV. However, it brings so much more to the table, including excellent image clarity, a wide aperture, very good low-light performance and plenty of novelty features.
Pros: Excellent image clarity, f/2.4 aperture, very good high ISO performance, stacks of novelty features (some of which are useful)
Cons: Controls could be better, photo playback is unintuitive, sometimes struggles in very bright conditions
Conclusion: I found the Sony Cybershot DSC WX5 to be a good all round digital camera that offers something a little different to the rest of the pack. Based on the features and claims from Sony I had hoped that picture quality would be something extra special.
Pros: Build quality - LCD screen - handling - features - movie quality
Summary: In providing one touch Full HD video recording in stereo and 3D capability (up to a point), the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 offers good value for anyone wanting all the latest must-haves in one pocket sized package that won't cause the bailiffs to come knocking.
