Hey! You should know that Sony has released a newer version of this product: the Sony Cyber-shot WX10.

Sony Cybershot WX5

We've given the WX5 a grade of B+.

Editor's Review

It looks like a regular old compact from the outside, but there's some exciting tech inside the new WX5. This Exmor model uses every trick in the book to get around the constraints of a small sensor. It shoots 10 frames per second in burst mode and, by combining several images from the burst into one composite image, the WX5 claims to take ultra low-noise images in dim lighting and shots with a defocused background. Sony even claims it can create 3D images. All this comes in a truly sleek and minuscule camera body featuring a 5x zoom, 1080i HD video, and a (possibly frustrating) 3-inch touchscreen. Whew. For a slightly pared-down model (that is, no touchscreen, but pretty much every other feature included), check out the soon-to-be-released WX9.
