The mode wheel is very fast and convenient.
Movie button is convenient and switches to movie mode instantaneously (read below about focus issue).
De-focus mode looks Fantastic on the camera screen, but viewing on computer screen reveals issues.
Very low noise using the 6-shot superior-auto-adjustment mode. Lower noise can be clearly seen if comparing regular and superior mode.
Wide angle lens great if your subjects are not too close to the corners.
Choice of 2 movie modes (AVCHD and MP4). I prefer MP4 because it is more compatible with editing applications.
3D looks great when you can capture it correctly, but it is very tricky and difficult to master.
Smile detection works really well. It never misses. But the result sometimes looks strange because the subject's mouth is still moving when the picture is taken.
Compression artifacts even in photos taken in broad daylight. Makes the photos look noisy even at lowest ISO.
Does not auto focus when Movie button is pressed. If focus is set too close and you need to quickly record a movie by pressing the Movie button, the entire movie will be out of focus. It focuses just fine when in Movie Mode. This comment was just about the Movie button frequently not working well with movie auto focus.
No movie pause button. You have to start/stop recording, no way to pause while you change positions and then resume. Forced to waste time editing later.
NO settings for compression ratio (Fine, SuperFine, etc). No setting for Saturation (Vivid, Natural, Black and White). Compression and saturation are basic settings that all other cameras possess but somehow this one misses it.
Extreme distortion at 24mm wide angle.
Panoramic mode forces you to do 180+ degrees.Read more ›
The newer features included a 3D mode, a better touchscreen, and improved panoramic mode. So when it arrived at the Sony Style store, I made my way over there to buy it. I returned home with the new Sony DSC-WX5.
I immediately fell I. Love with the WX5. It did everything that the TX9 did, sans the 3.5 touchscreen...something that I really didn't care about. First of all, the WX5 is smaller than the TX9...but a bit thicker. It's built like a tank. It also sports a much faster lens, the G-Series F2.4 with a 5x zoom.
You simply can't believe the low light shots that this camera produces...without noise. The 2.8" screen is brilliant, with about 460,000 pixels. You also don't have to drill down into many menus to change settings, like on the touchscreen.
I understand that the sensor is small, but this is a camera that fits in my pocket and will be with me all day. A d the low light capabilities are si ply amazing. This is the best ultra-compact on the market. I'm just tired of cRying aroung a big DSLR. Sure they take great pics, but you just hate lugging them around.
For $299, this a great camera...and an absolute ball to use.
This is the P&S I have been looking for. EXCELLENT CAMERA! Note: I don't care about the zoom (5x). What I care about is the Image Quality.
UPDATE - 1/13/11 - I went to Disneyland on New Year's Eve and took a video of the Parade. The video quality is excellent! It is as good as a high end camcorder.. it is simply amazing in 1080p or even 720p. The only draw back is the battery life. I brought an extra battery to make sure.. and I am glad I did. I highly recommend this camera!
