Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W1

PC Magazine
12 June 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: A smart metal body and large LCD screen combine with a high-resolution sensor to make Sony's DSCW1 Cyber-shot an attractive camera, and its competitive price and ease of use will contribute to its success. So, too, will the Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens, although its wide-angle coverage may not be ideal for all photographers. It's hard to fault the W1's overall design as all controls and fittings are well placed and easy to use.
  • Pros: Impressive video capabilities, Excellent skin tone reproduction in low contrast lighting
  • Cons: No custom white balance, Flash position tends to produce red-eye [BG05]

Sony Cybershot DSC W1 Review

LetsGoDigital

  • 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.

Sony Cybershot DSC W1 Review

Let's go digital
21 April 2006
  • Conclusion: Difficile de critiquer ce Sony DSC-W1 tant il nous a plu. Bien sûr personnellement nous aurions préféré avoir un zoom un peu plus grand angle comme un 28-100 mm au lieu de ce 38 mm, mais en pratique après avoir utilisé cet appareil de manière extensive nous n'avons pas trouvé beaucoup de raisons de nous en plaindre. L'appareil est compact, confortable, extrêmement bien fini est très facile à utiliser.
