Summary: The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX5 is a compact digital camera equipped with many colorful and interesting features, such as videos Full HD, the optical stabilizer, the Exmor R CMOS sensor, the high-resolution display, panoramic photos in 3D, the goal of quality and various functions for portraits. The only drawback remains the memory too low.
Pros: Full HD video footage; Exmor R CMOS sensor, Sony G lens, high-resolution display, panoramic photos in 3D, advanced Face Detection, Smile Shutter
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. Although picture quality is good there were one or two areas where the camera did not quite live up to my hopes.
Pros: Build quality - LCD screen - handling - features - movie quality

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
