Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX50 (Black)
4 Star Review  cnet.com - Nov 27, 2012

THE GOOD: The <b>Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX50</b> offers excellent features for automatic snapshots and speedy shooting performance, and nice photo and video quality for its class. THE BAD: The WX50s controls might be too small for some users and its photos arent sharp enough for pixel peepers. THE BOTTOM LINE: The tiny Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX50 is a lot of camera for the money, with solid shooting performance, and good photo and movie quality.

4 Star Review   By Mahalogirl on Adorama - Apr 26, 2013   

Having been without a camera for a couple years, I shopped online and found this to be rated well for the price. I have not been disappointed. The ultimate test was waving my hand as I snapped a photo....it came out clear with no lag time. Sold! It is com

5 Star Review   By James on Adorama - Apr 26, 2013   

I bought this for work to take pictures of our floors. I wasn't looking for too much and this camera FAR exceeded my expectations. Simple to use, super fast shutter and zoom, takes good quality video, and loads of features. There isnt anything I don't lik

5 Star Review   By jed1 on Adorama - Dec 7, 2012   

I just received the camera so still learning to use it. Did not look at book yet but should do so. Now just fun playing with it! After I become more familiar with it will try to remember to return and update my report. But so far a fantastic camera every shot clear and bright despite deliberately trying to shoot under poor conditions.

I love the camera. It's with me always. I love its small size. I love its low-light sensitivity. I'm impressed by the way it takes multiple images in some modes and recombines them for enhanced dynamic range. I went head-to-head with a friend comparing fe

Not up to 2012 Image quality standards
2 Star Review   By jansci on Sony - Official Store - Jul 18, 2012   

Was eagerly waiting for this camera, great specs and features and with a decent price. While all the features worked as advertised: panorama, 1080i video, color isolation, etc., the main purpose of the camera (taking pictures) seem to have been forgotten. Zoom in any image (1:1) and you'll see a picture that seems to have been painted using a brush and watercolor. Edges and details are all washed out. My 6 year old Canon S3 takes better pictures than this.

5 Star Review   By Skully on Sony - Official Store - Apr 16, 2012   

This is a great camera for a great price. I was especially impressed with the low light capability. I did review dozens of other cameras in this price range and I am VERY happy with the ease and functionality of this camera. Thank you Sony for a great product !
