Sony Cybershot DSC-V1 Review
Rear of camera controls
On the rear of the camera the control layout is fairly logical, three settings buttons at the top left, the zoom controller at the top right, the jog dial located 'under your thumb' and three more buttons and the 4-way controller beside the LCD monitor. The DSC-V1 has a fairly unique zoom controller, the direction for wide / tele can be swapped via the Setup menu.
