Amazing Small Digital Camera! High quality pictures especially in low light
I bought this camera to take pictures on my Honeymoon in Italy, and was not disappointed. It's compact and fits nicely in your shirt or pants pocket or a bag. Panoramic feature is amazing. I was able to take beautiful shots of Lake Como and city wide shots of Rome with amazing clarity. Some may prefer more than 5X zoom, but I didn't have any problems with framing my shots or getting the correct size picture. I was amazed by the low light capability!!! I own large format and several Nikon SLR cameras and have the best light meter devices you can buy, but this cameras ability to take high quality, high resolution, sharp photographs indoors, twilight and in the evenings with available light was incredible. The motion control capability combined for some of the best pictures I have ever taken. Especially in the museums where flash is not allowed, I was able to take some very high quality, picture book quality photographs. And the price is a fantastic deal! Best small camera I have seen and owned to date, and I've owned several over the years.Read full review

The best of BOTH... rrrr.. The best of ALL worlds! Replace the Camcorder!
Having had this DSC-WX9 camera for only 2 days! I was IN LOVE with this camera at FIRST sight! From the very first picture! And with the first video I made, I was in HEAVEN! LOL. Never in my life have I been more happy with the purchase! I mean, the videos are sinfully CLEAR! Its HD! Even BETTER quaility than my last Canon Vixia HF10 HD camcorder that I bought for $1000 back in 2008! YES it is actually BETTER quality! Yeah, you read this right! It uses AVCHD format! And the GREAT about it. It does NOT eat a lot of memory space! About 100 mb/ min. I had a Panasonic FH5 camera before, HD vid on that cam needed 200 mb/ min. And was only 720p, and quality was NOT near this Sony!
WELL ultimately, the thing I REALLY LOVE about this Sony WX9. My dream finnally came TRUE! The best of BOTH worlds in ONE camera! Not like before: You always had to SACRIFICE one or the other! No matter how good the snap shot camera is. I always needed my separate and bulky HD camcorder for the video. And while using my HD cam, I always had a separate quality snapshot camera since my HD camcorder offered only a basic 3mp camera. Of course with my hobby, I gotta have the best quality pics and vids. Unfortunately, I always needed to bring BOTH! Which was a pain to do!
BUT with THIS Sony, NO MORE do I need to carry BOTH!
And besides this, its a really nice looking camera.. professional looking. Black is a nice color. And the great part! The price is very FRIENDLY! Well I bought mines at Costco. I got the camera, plus came with a 4 gb class 4 memory card and a Sony carry case, NICE! For $169. Im love this cam SO MUCH, Im thinking of buying another one as a second cam. Especially if the price is awesome coming onto black friday! Exciting! LOL
So all in all... The things I really like about the WX9 are
1. Stunning 1080i HD video! Incredibly clear! And has 3 HD settings. Even the cheaper of the 3 HD settings is AS GOOD AS my $1000 HD camcorder! BUT not only that, it does have an MP4 setting to make a video for Youtube! Convenient!
2. Super clear photos! Take excellent indoor shots!
3. I get a super WIDE angle view! This is GREAT when im in a cramped area. I can get a lot of items into the picture! Not like my $1000 HD cam, I was only able to get a few items to fit in the picture!
4. Love the compact size! TOO easy to carry in pocket!
5. Has an HDMI output!
6. Handles the low light really well!
7. Being a more known brand. And the fact that its not a budget brand like Insignia, or Apex
8. Has optical zoom 5x, and optical image stablizer, and records audio in stereo for camcorder.
9. HD videos are NOT a gas hog... rrr I mean NOT a memory space hog on this camera! Takes about 100mb for each minute.
10. The fact that I got the BEST of BOTH worlds. Awesome snap shot camera/ AWESOME HD camcorder all in ONE convienient pocket size camera! YES!
****************** UPDATE 6-1-12 ******************
Having had this cam since 11-11! Still VERY happy with this cam! Now for what I dont like!
1) batteries run out too quickly on video mode!
2) The protruding lens. Prone to accidental breakage!
3) Sometimes takes too long for it to get ready to take a picture or video. Busy busy. And annoy me when after waiting a couple seconds, when I take a picture/ video, its still not ready.
4) CANT take pictures while making a video! All cams are like that
Thats all I can think of which is no big deal! I STILL GIVE THIS WX9 A 5/5 RATING.Read full review
