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. We're not fans of its buttons and levers, which we think could be much better, but the overall performance and the built-in capabilities out-weigh the negatives.
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
Excerpt: Sony has a history of embracing 3D technology. From the Sony PS3 Slim to the Sony Bravia HX803 and now the Sony Cyber-shot WX5 , the world of 3D is welcomed with open arms where Sony is concerned.
Summary: The diminutive Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 is a well-built compact camera that will let you take 3D images. Packing plenty of hi-tech features, it offers decent value for money, even if it does feel gimmicky on occasions.
Pros: Well-made and compact, Easy to use, Colourful results, '3D sweep panorama' feature is fun, Bright and clear LCD display, Records 1080i videos
Cons: Some features are gimmicky, You need a 3D TV to view '3D sweep panorama' images in 3D
Conclusion: Deze digitale camera biedt leuke opties voor als je een rustig dagje gaat fotograferen. De beeldprocessor is wat traag, waardoor je niet foto op foto kunt maken. Wel biedt de Sony WX5 vele leuke opnamefuncties om je dagje uit nog specialer vast te leggen. Het slanke model weegt niet veel, dus hij is prettig om overal mee naar toe te nemen.
