Sony's W-series was once the go-to digital camera for a little better quality than the others in the line, yet in a traditional pocket size. The Sony Cyber-shot WX5 picks up that theme, presenting a sweet little digital camera that's both light and pocketable.
It's also quite attractive, with a brushed metal front and a black back that houses its 2.8-inch LCD. The Sony WX5's 5x zoom ranges from 24 to 120mm equivalent and is optically stabilized. With a 12-megapixel sensor, the Sony WX5 makes prints that are generally a little sharper than 14-megapixel digital cameras, though sometimes the camera's clever image processing can reduce that resolution. Sony's latest tricks make it into the WX5, including Intelligent Sweep Panorama and the various 3D modes as well. The Cyber-shot WX5 has quite a lot of power in one small, lightweight digital camera, but there are a few unfortunate flaws. Click here for our Sony WX5 review.
