Summary: Love this little camera. It takes awesome pictures. Movies and Panoramics too. The evening shots are amazing. I am completely satisfied with the camera. The only thing I would want is more zoom. My last camera was double the zoom and I didn't realize how much I used it.
Summary: Negatives: -image stabilizer is a little weak for video, when you start to zoom in or out it causes the lens to jerk or twitch because of the slight play in the mechanism -despite the good lcd resolution it's a little difficult to tell if you are focusing properly -battery life is kind of short, and...
Summary: Great camera for the price you have to pay. Compact and powerfull, great movie shots and pictures. I miss some brightness in some pivtures shot in the evening or places with minimum light. Overall, great purchase.
Summary: Update: June 11, 2012 I've had the camera for a year now, and still love it! The reason I'm writing this update is because I began to see a dark spot in the images. Then I hit the Internet, did a little research, and found out that dust can easily get in and the best way to clean it is with a vacuum...
Summary: This camera takes sharp, beautiful pictures. It's incredibly easy to use and has lots of fun features (hello, panorama!). For all of these reasons, I really want to recommend this camera. But the battery life is terrible.
Summary: Bought an Hx5v in May (see my other review) and has been happy with it after almost 6 months of usage. My folks were impressed by the pictures and videos I could capture with the camera and I've decide to get the WX5 for them.
Summary: Simply put this one of the best point-and-shoots you can buy on the market. It's quick, loaded with features, and the picture quality is some of the best I've ever seen out of a point and shoot. It performs admirably in low light. Especially using the Superior Auto mode.
Summary: I was expecting a lot from this camera, having read the CNET and other expert reviews, so it was going to be difficult for it to impress me. Overall (and so far) I am impressed though. Picture quality is very good - not as good as my DSLR but far better then my previous Casio Exilim compact.
Summary: Absolutely love this camera. Chose the WX5 over the HX5V with its 10x zoom. The WX5 is smaller, better in low light, has a better res screen and in my view the controls feel nicer to use. For a compact camera the image quality is pretty good. Full HD movie an advantage.
Pros: sweet compact, build quality, screen, controls, HD video, pro stick and SDHC cards
Cons: So compact, some may find it difficult to hold
