“satisfactory” (3.05)

Value for money: “adequate”

“LIKES: integrated memory of 16 Gigabytes; effective image stabilisation; accessory shoe. DISLIKES: no view-finder.”

Magazine 4/2010
“good” (66 out of 100 points)

Value for money: “good”

“The smaller one of the two CX models has neither a GPS function nor a USB input; but instead it offers a lot of wide angle and in connection with a not too large telephoto effect. Weird: As opposed to the XR 155, it has a higher image resolution at 4.2 megapixels; one of the reasons for its lead in sharpness however, is clear edge increasement.”

1.3; top class

Value for money: “good - very good”

“The Sony model just barely missed the test winner award. With its good video performance, the device is positioned at the same level as the test winner, only in regards to photo mode it falls slightly behind.”
