Sony CyberShot DSC-WX1 Reviews

TrustedReviews reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-WX1 and writes;
“The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX1 is exactly what a luxury ultra-compact should be; a tiny techno-toy crammed with all the latests gadgets and gizmos, with fast performance, plenty of clever features and decent picture quality to match. It may look a bit dull but it is very well made, and despite the price it’s actually not bad value. “
Rating: ★★★★½

PCMag reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-WX1 and writes;
“The Sony WX1 is a great choice for intermediate photographers looking for a very compact camera with great low-light performance.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

RegHardware reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-WX1 and writes;
“we were disappointed with the creeping noise levels on images with ISO speeds as low as 200. Low light performance was pretty good using the Twilight scene mode, but high ISO settings produced lots of noise. The Hand Held Twilight and Anti Motion Blur modes can produce good results, but many shots in these modes were blurred”
Rating: ★★★½☆

DCR reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-WX1 and writes;
“The WX1 really shines in movie mode….. not only can you use the zoom while filming, but you can also utilize all the WX1′s low light capabilities, enable Image Stabilization, adjust white balance, and manipulate the exposure compensation function.”

BuyNShoot reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-WX1 and writes;
“As a complete package, there isn’t much that the Cyber-Shot DSC-WX1 doesn’t offer: it’s sleek and stylish, affordably priced, produced quality images, is packed full of an array of expected features s well as being topped with numerous little cherries to really help this camera assert itself amongst the pack. “
Rating: ★★★★½

PhotographyBlog reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-WX1 and writes;
“Its wealth of innovative hand-holding modes makes it easy to successfully shoot regular photos, panoramas, and particularly low-light images, an area where most compacts really struggle. It may only look like yet another compact camera, but the Sony WX1 delivers impressive results in a fun and easy way”
Rating: ★★★★½

DCRP reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-WX1 and writes;
“I like its performance, well-implemented face and smile detection system, cool sweep panorama feature, and HD movie mode. However, the WX1′s disappointing image quality and so-so ergonomics coupled with the fact that it costs more than the DSC-W290 but has fewer features makes me think that your money could be better spent on another camera.”

GoodGearGuide reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-WX1 and writes;
“The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 is a mixed bag. We liked its Sweep Panorama mode and low-light performance, but a few flaws stop it from being a perfect pocket camera. Nonetheless, it’s a strong competitor to Canon’s IXUS 120 IS.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

ImagingResource reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-WX1 and writes;
” ISO 200 shots are very similar, looking good at 11×14 inches. ISO 400 shots are better kept to 8.5×11 print sizes, and ISO 800 shots are better kept to 8×10 inch prints. ISO 1,600 shots are also usable at 8×10….”
