DP Review
1 July 2003
  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Sony DSC-V1: (5 megapixel prosumer) Sony have done it again, the DSC-V1 is a camera which can easily appeal to a wide range of buyers. It's small enough to be carried out more yet featured enough to still be attractive to the prosumer owner.
  • Pros: Above average resolution, good tonal balance, good color response, Very low noise, even at higher ISO (best of the bunch), Image processing parameter control (contrast, saturation and sharpening), Very fast auto focus, the fastest we have seen to date, Relatively quick startup (just over 3 second...
  • Cons: Poor auto white balance outdoors indirect sunlight, Some mild chromatic aberrations visible in extreme circumstances, Some 'halo' sharpening artifacts visible around dark detail, No manual focus magnification / confirmation, Menu system while functional is looking tired, Limited continuous shooti...

  • Excerpt: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-V1 ($699) is easily one of the most anticipated cameras of 2003. It appears to be going after two types of buyers: those considering the Canon PowerShot G3 (read our review), and those who want Sony's DSC-F717 (read our review) in a smaller package.
  • Pros: Good photo quality (though see negatives below), Fast performance (except when writing TIFF file), Hot shoe for external flash, Amazing Hologram AF laser focusing system, Support for add-on lenses, filters, NightShot and NightFraming are semi-useful, Full manual controls, Support for USB 2.0, Liv...
  • Cons: Drab colors in photos, noise levels higher than I'd like; some purple fringing, Redeye, Expensive camera, even more expensive Memory Stick Pro cards (for larger capacities), No diopter correction knob, Watch those fingers: left hand fingers can block flash, right hand fingers block optical viewfi...

  • Summary: The 5-megapixel DSC-V1 offers a great combination of features and performance in a relatively small body. While it’s smaller than its prime competitors – the Canon G5 and the Nikon 5400 – there are even smaller models in this month’s company.

  • Cons: Zoom-Wippe und Menü sind zu klein, keine Benutzer-Presets
