Sony Cyber Shot W

CNET

  • Summary: A 2.5-inch LCD, decent image quality, and both automated and selected manual controls make the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-W5 a competent camera for the casual photographer.
  • Pros: 2.5-inch LCD; quick burst mode; flexible controls; solid image quality.
  • Cons: No shutter- or aperture-priority mode; manual focus limited to six preset steps; subpar optical viewfinder.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W1

PC Magazine
15 March 2006
  • Conclusion: The W1 is fun to use, thanks to a monster 2.5-inch LCD, and it produces reasonably good-looking images. But some quirkiness with image sharpness means that if you plan to print large images, this may not be the 5MP camera for you.
  • Pros: Huge LCD. Images are well exposed with colors that pop. Simple to use. Advanced features, such as a real-time histogram and manual modes.
  • Cons: Very low scores on our resolution test for a 5MP camera. Sharpening may cause edges to look forced. Optical VF has some barrel distortion.

  • Conclusion: The Sony DSC-W1 is a very successful digital camera, it can't be commented on in a negative way. Alright, for me personally I would like to see the camera equipped with a 28-100mm lens in stead of starting with a 38mm one, however technically seen and after using the camera in practice there is hardly any reason to complain. The compact beautifully designed housing lies comfortably in ones hand and is solidly finished.

  • Summary: The Cyber-shot DSC-W1 is an affordable yet high-performance 5-megapixel digital camera that offers a Carl Zeiss 3x optical zoom lens, large 2.5-inch color LCD, automatic simplicity and advanced features that you can "grow into" later, housed in a very compact, stylish and durable metal body about the size of a deck of playing cards.

Sony Cybershot DSC W1 Review

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: De Sony DSC-W1 is een zeer geslaagde digitale camera waar weinig negatief commentaar op te leveren is. Goed, de camera mag van mij persoonlijk uitgerust worden met bijvoorbeeld een 28-100mm objectief in plaats van te starten met een objectief van 38mm, echter technisch gezien en na het gebruik in de praktijk is er weinig of geen reden tot klagen. De compacte, fraai vormgegeven behuizing ligt prima in de hand, is stabiel en is degelijk afgewerkt.

Röviden: Sony DSC-W1

Pixinfo
19 May 2006
  • Summary: A Sony LCD részlegének legújabb terméke a W1 jelű hordozható LCD monitor. A kijelző mérete 2,5 hüvelyk, és mivel manapság a Sony is a multifunkciós eszközöket preferálja, ezért a W1-et Memory Stick Pro kártyaolvasóval, MPEG videó lejátszóval, sőt, még egy 5,1 Mpixeles, 3x-os zoomos digitális fényképezőgéppel is ellátták. Mindez elfér egy nadrág zsebében. Ez a Sony DSC-W1.
