Excerpt: The Sony Cyber-shot WX10 is a 16.2MP point and shoot camera with a 7x optical zoom that debuted at CES 2011 . I had the opportunity to go hands-on with a preproduction version of the compact shooter for a few minutes at Sony’s CES booth. Below you will find my initial impressions of the new camera.
Excerpt: With a body measuring about the width and height of a stack of business cards, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 point-and-shoot camera ($399.00) packs a surprising amount of features into a slight frame.
Conclusion: Offering brains as well as beauty, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 falls between your auto everything snapshot and enthusiast-targeted premium compacts such as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 , Canon PowerShot S95 et al.
Pros: High quality construction, lashings of style, feature packed thus offering a degree of future proofing, good quality results in daylight and low light with minimal user effort required
Cons: Lack of decent handgrip, some extras verge on the gimmicky
Summary: Given that at the end of the day this is basically a point and shoot camera pure and simple, Sony has packed a lot of functionality into the WX10 that should save those who want to occasionally do something other than pointing and shooting getting rapidly bored.
Summary: As a truly pocketable camera, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 stands out for its 7x optical-zoom lens and its unique modes for low-light shots, panorama images, and 3D stills. Shortcomings include its small buttons, lack of image sharpness and very limited manual controls.
Conclusion: Die Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 vereint im handlichen und leichten Gehäuse viele Automatik-Funktionen, eine rasante Performance und einen für diese Kameragröße auffallend großen Zoom. Wer die Kamera mit filigranen Fingern bedient, wird die einfache Bedienung schätzen.
Pros: Klein & leicht, Viele Funktionen inklusive Full-HD-Video, Akku-Laufzeit
Cons: Darstellung feiner Bilddetails, Kleine Tasten
