Megapixel reviewed the Sony DSC-N1, an 8.0 Megapixel (CCD) point-and-shoot digital camera with 3x zoom lens (38-114mm equivalent in 35mm) and a 3″ TFT touch screen. They wrote:
“The N1 yields images that are nothing short of excellent, especially when these are captured under full sun. The images show no sign of chromatic aberration, no barrel distortion with subjects at standard distances — a little bit of distortion is sometimes observable when the subject is shot in macro mode — and no pincushion distortion at the telephoto end. Sharpness is also excellent right across the frame, and is uniformly good irrespective of the focal length.
Positives: Excellent image quality, No noise at 64 and 100 ISO, Touch screen system, 3-inch LCD monitor, Fast to operate and responsive, Capable of long exposures.
Negatives: Touch screen keys should have presented the most commonly needed settings, Black monitor trim too reflective, Flash underpowered.”
