Summary: I'm a creative photographer and like experimenting with photos manually (light, shutter speed, aperture settings etc...) and already have a great DSLR camera. But sometimes it's a little big to carry places where I'd like to be discrete taking pictures.
Summary: Okay, I really loved this camera and the picture quality. The other reviews cover that pretty well so I'll keep it brief. After only 1 month the shutter stopped closing completely, and the repair process is no fun at all.
Summary: I prefer small pocket size cameras which can take nice still photos and good movie clips. That is why for a number of years I had successively Sony DSC-T1, T30, and T100 ultra-compacts. They fitted all my needs at that time and I was happy with their perfromance.
Summary: Had this camera for about a month now - its a fine camera and has the usual settings/functions as mentioned by others. There are some quirks with this camera which I wanted to point out. GOOD- Photo Quality - Others cover this so I wont go into it, but basically the photos are very good.
Summary: I decided to purchase a new pocket camera to take on a trip to Disney World. I needed low light capabilities for indoor and nighttime pictures without a flash and a wide angle lens. I purchased two cameras and compared them for several days prior to the trip.
Summary: Low-light was not as good as the hype, and normal everyday pics are much softer/fuzzier than my canon a650. This might not seem fair, as the canon has a bigger sensor, but I was hoping the ordinary, undemanding daylight images of the sony would be relatively close to the canon.
Summary: I had really high hopes for this camera. Great size, low light capability, panorama, high speed burst, and HD video with optical zoom. Well, 2 out of 5 doesn't cut it compared to other cameras available today. The size and video are great.
Summary: I own cameras in this size range because they will fit easily enough in my pants, shirt or coat pocket. Depending on the circumstances, you might be able to take an image worth framing, and they are handy for recording still or video information in stores, etc.
Summary: I had an old Sony digital camera DSC-V1, and I decided to 'upgrade' to the DSC WX1. I have used it extensively over the last 18 months or so and it performs as described, with the exception that I am disappointed with the image quality.
Summary: I'd support almost all of the positive comments about the Cybershot WX1 including its compact form, ease of use, and use in low light. However, I returned my first WX1 to Amazon because of what I thought was a fault.
