Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 review

I purchased this camera for its low light performance. Generally it was good, much better than a standard point and shoot. Noise was better, not perfect but much better. The images were a little low in contrast and saturation.

Problems:

In general outdoor use the camera performance was poor, lack of contrast and what looked to be poor lens sharpness. these general photos looked dull compared to a generic point and shoot camera. The color saturation was also low and there are no options on the camera to adjust.

Not withstanding its good low light performance I returned the camera, expecting that given its small size and high price it could have taken good photos both in low light and in day light...
