Patrick Singleton has posted a brief review of the Sony Cybershot DSC R1, a 10.3 Megapixel Sony CMOS sensor with Carl Zeiss 24-120mm zoom lens and 2″ LCD screen.
“Pros: Great lens, APS-format sensor, Excellent color accuracy, Impressive handling of noise – produces remarkably clean images, Electronic Viewfinder quality, AF sensor can be moved with joystick, Excellent fit and finish
Cons: Very slow operation (start-up, shot-to-shot, shutter-to-shot, autofocus, playback, etc.), Mediocre LCD (very limited angle of view), Poor placement of some controls, illogical design, Substandard autofocus (accuracy and speed), Cheap plastic camera body, Hot shoe placed far off to right side, No movie mode, Buffer holds only 3 images in burst mode, Control dials don’t turn smoothly”
