Very disappointing

Adam C Duclos, Amazon
9 July 2013
  • Summary: I've owned this camera for almost 4 years now, and I barely use it. Pictures taken with this camera are always blurry, even in direct sunlight. Low light pictures are blurry and pixelated. Taking a picture with the camera turned sideways to better frame a specific shot shows a lot of distortion from the wide angle lens. Video is usually okay, but has two major problems... First, the noise of zooming in and out is recorded very loudly.

Lacks Manual Adjustments & Settings! Grade: C- at BEST!

  • Summary: 5 MAJOR things that are VERY dissapointing about this camera: 1) The Power Button is too far to the left for it to be operated with just one hand. This means that everytime I want to use the camera, I have to have both hands free, even if for only a second, in order to hold the camera and press the Power Button. I did NOT have this issue on my Sony DSC-W55.

Quite a letdown

CameraFan, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this camera because I wanted something to replace my Sony DSC-W300. This appeared to be the high-end replacement for the W300 and one of the first compact cameras using CMOS technology. My opinion is that the photos look lifeless and dull, similar to mobile-phone photos and MUCH WORSE than photos off the iPhone!

Huge Disappointed

  • Summary: I bought this product on Nov. 15, but once I got it and tried it out, I asked Amazon to return it real quick because of picture quality, which does not match with its price at all. I bought this camera because this one was supposed to be a good pocket camera for me;I have my expectation that it would be a good auto-mode camera. Yet, it is really disappointed that its automode does not do its job well.

Good but poor autofocus

Raleigh Reagan Atkinson "Digital geek", Amazon
15 November 2009
  • Summary: Great small camera, love the 24mm, but the camera back focuses way too much. Subject was four feet away, but the camera focused almost 6 feet away. The subject was OK, but not tack sharp as what was hoped for.

If You Like Noisy Red Photos....

Chino, Amazon
7 October 2009
  • Summary: I had high hopes for this Sony, and even went to the trouble of buying a 16GB Memory Stick Duo (hate their proprietary attitude) and an extra battery. While I like the size, twilight and panoramic features - there are several things that add up to a deal-breaker: - Noisy photos. Grainy, even in bright sunlight. How is that possible?! (for the answer, see the next line item) - No manual controls.

Ständig Probleme...

Sabine Schlosser "SabineSchl", Amazon
27 December 2011
  • Summary: Ich habe mir die Sony DSC-WX1 gekauft, weil ich mit einem Vorgängermodell (DSC-W1) sehr gute Erfahrungen gemacht hatte. Sie ist unsere Zweit-Kamera (neben einer digitalen Spiegelreflex von Canon). Die alte Kamery war prima für meine Zwecke: schnell aufnahmebereit, kurze Auslösezeit und damit prima für Schnappschüsse, lag gut in der Hand und hat außerdem gute Fotos gemacht.

DEFECTO

Alba, quesabesde.com
8 December 2010
  • Summary: Bueno, llegué a pensar que el problema que detecté al hacer fotos en interior con luces puntuales utilizando el zoom era un defecto de mi unidad. Y más viendo que SONY vuelve a utilizar la misma optica en la WX5. Así que reclamé al vendedor y este a SONY. Después de una larga discusión entre ellos. SONY reconoce que es un problema de "reverberación" y que esta camara no es la idonea para hacer fotos en interiores donde hay fuentes de luz puntuales.

Aus Urlaub retour und dann der Schock !!!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
29 August 2010
  • Summary: Habe die Kamera jetzt schon seit sechs Monaten und da bei uns das Wetter nicht so Sonnenreich ist, konnte ich nun die Kamera im Sommerurlaub testen. Unterwegs war ich in Kroatien ... Zuhause dann die Fotos verglichen mit der fünf Jahre älteren Sony DSC-H1, die ich auch dabei hatte. Bei der Sony WX1 sehen die Fotos aus als wäre ein Gewitter statt Sonnenschein ... der schönste blaue Himmel, der mit der alten H1 perfekt aussieht ist bei der WX1 grau-weisslich bis lila ...
