Sony WX1 Review

The UberReview
24 August 2010
  • Excerpt: I was very happy to be selected part of Sony’s WX1 Panoramic photo contest. For a quick recap, a select group of people took a bunch of panoramic shots, people vote on the best picture and Sony will give 10 WX1 cameras to a school of the winners choice. It’s a great way of promoting what is easily this camera’s greatest feature, the sweep panorama shot.

The all-black Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 is the latest compact digital camera by Sony that promises outstanding low-light performance thanks to the latest image sensor. This slick camera weighs only 148 grams (with battery) and is about the size of a deck of cards.

  • Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 does cost a bit much for a camera with no manual shutter or aperture controls. However, for the price, you get a very compact, very stylish camera that takes excellent photos in dark settings, and its unique in-camera modes make it a great all-purpose pocket camera.

Digital Camera Review
28 December 2009
  • Summary: I really enjoyed using the WX1 and I captured some interesting images with it, but I also found the camera a bit frustrating - it sometimes appears to have been designed by a committee. On the one hand, the WX1 provides a lot of nifty features that were clearly added to appeal to more advanced shooters - it has a very good zoom that starts at a wide angle equivalent of 24mm, a manual White Balance mode, a 720p video mode, and enhanced low light shooting capabilities.
  • Pros: Impressive noise management, Excellent 5x zoom, 720p movie mode
  • Cons: Slight tendency toward over-exposure, No direct access to the most commonly changed/adjusted camera settings and functions

  • Excerpt: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 ($349) is an ultra-compact, point-and-shoot camera that uses a new "back-illuminated" CMOS sensor, which promises better higher sensitivity and less noise than traditional CCDs. Throw in a wide and fast 5X zoom lens, HD movie recording, and a fair number of point-and-shoot features, and the WX1 looks like it could compete against the reining low light champ, the Fuji FinePix F200EXR.

  • Summary: Overall, I think the Sony WX1 is one of the leading, consumer-oriented point and shoot cameras. If you’re ready to recognize that a pocket-sized camera is smarter than you, and you can trust it to do it’s job, you’ll have a happy relationship with the Sony WX1.
