First Look: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1

1:23 /

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 is a great, fast-performing snapshot camera that falters on photo quality.

[ Music ] >> Hi. I'm Josh Goldman, Senior Editor for CNET Reviews, and this is a look at the Sony CyberShot DSC-WX1. It's a very compact 10-megapixel camera, features Sony's back-illuminated Cima [assumed spelling] sensor, a bright F 2.4 aperture Sony G lens, and a fast image processor. The combination allows for several shooting options, including a burst mode of ten frames per second, handheld low light photos, wide-angle panoramic shots, and an anti-motion blur mode. The WX1 is also capable of capturing HD-quality video with use of its 5X optical zoom while recording. The WX1 is one of the fastest point and shoot cameras we've tested, and the burst mode works as claimed. However, you do have to wait two to three seconds for each photo to be saved to the memory stick. Both the handheld twilight and anti-motion blur modes work by firing off six shots and then compiling them all together to make one photo. The results are impressive, especially for clearing up noise and keeping detail in low light shots. However, regular photos, such as those taken in auto mode, are just above average for a compact camera in its class. I'm Josh Goldman, and that's the Sony Cybershot DSC-WX1. ^M00:01:21 [ Music ]
