4 out of 5 stars

Pocket-Lint was very impressed by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10, remarking that this is the perfect camera for those who not only want point-and-shoot convenience, but who also appreciate having a few extra options on hand for more flexibility. Image quality was reliable and even provided nice results in low-lighting, while its vast array of features meant that it's future-ready.

3 out of 5 stars

If portability is your main concern, then the Sony CyberShot DSC-WX10 is worth a look, says PC Advisor, who feels that being truly pocketable is what makes this camera stand out. Reviewers also like its generous feature list and describe its 1080i video as among the best they've seen. However, they find that the quality of its still shots is disappointing, and it's expensive.

After checking out the Sony CyberShot DSC-WX10, CNet figures that while it's not the sort of camera that can start a revolution, its impressive array of features and compact design may make it a noteworthy player, that is, if its photo quality rises to the occasion. While its 3D might turn out to be a gimmick, its 7x optical zoom and 1080i video capture should be noteworthy.

Value for money: 84%

“In its light, compact body, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 combines several automatic functions, rapid performance and a remarkably large zoom for the size of the camera. Those with delicate fingers will also appreciate the simple operation of the camera. The lack of noise is impressive, however, the low detail accuracy detracts from the overall image quality. The camera’s more affordable sister model, the WX7, generally delivers much better photos.”
