Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 - Test Shots - ISO Performance

By Cliff Smith



Our Score:


Over the next few pages we show a range of test shots. On this page the full size image at the minimum and maximum ISO settings have been reduced to let you see the full image, and a series of full resolution crops have taken from original images at a range of ISO settings to show the overall image quality. These pictures were taken indoors using shaded natural light.


This is the full frame at the minimum ISO setting of 160.


The image quality at 160 ISO is excellent, with good colour gradation and fine detail.


Not much difference at 200 ISO, unsurprisingly.


Slightly more noise at 400 ISO, but the image is perfectly printable.


Quite a bit more noise at 800 ISO, but the overall quality is still pretty good.


Image quality is greatly reduced in high ISO mode, at 1600 ISO.


This is the full frame at 1600 ISO.

It's got an unusually fast lens for a compact, very tempting. I'm looking to get a new compact camera this summer, it's getting harder & harder to choose!! HX-5, WX-1, TZ10, CX3 - Arggh!!!

This camera is indeed very well featured, but as for the Image Quality rating should have been 6 or 7 because the pictures taken with this camera is inconsistent.

ChrisC: You should check out Panasonic ZR3. It's an all-rounder in terms of features, camera size, image quality, speed, etc.

Wonder what would happen if you did a panorama pan shot while following a passing car/person/bicycle. Could be interesting!
