Summary: I bought the Sony WX1 because my Canon Powershot G7 is dreadful in low light situations. The WX1 is somewhat better in low light but not the dramatic improvement I was expecting based on the reviews. Additionally, for all other situations, the image quality is dramatically worse than the Powershot G7. I'm still looking for the camera with the motor drive, zoom, responsiveness and image quality of the G7 but that can perform better in low light.
Pros: Easy To Use, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1: Sony buzzes its way to being returned
10 December 2009
Summary: This is a great looking camera... and I anticipated good things. You see Sony had been bragging about their new Exmor R sensor and how it performed so well in low light. It also was going to deliver some cool party features and HD video.
Well, they were right about the Exmor R. It does perform well. The camera has lots of scene modes. One of them is called Twilight mode, where it takes six photos without flash and combines them into one. In my test it worked very well.
Excerpt: Min första digitalkamera var en sånhär. En helt duglig kamera som ger alldeles okej bra bilder. Ingen avancerad modell och användarbar för alla. Den har alla grundinställningar en kamera ska ha och bilderna får ett bra, värklighetstroget resultat. Ingenting för den som vill ta proffsbilder. Fungerar att ha med överallt i väskan och om man vill förlänga ett fint minne.
