Ikke alle online medier er gået på ferie, og DigitalCameraReview.com har anmeldt Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX1.

Point and shoot digital cameras have come a long way in the past decade – most are now capable of capturing high quality images outdoors in good light. But digital cameras generally don’t do as well in low-light situations, indoors, and after dark. Digital images shot in low light environments often show lots of noise and display flat, dull colors. Sony’s new Cyber-shot DSC-WX1 was designed to change that.
The WX1 utilizes an innovative new back-illuminated CMOS sensor that Sony claims will capture sharper, more detailed images in low/dim lighting – images with less noise and more vibrant colors than those shot with standard CMOS and CCD sensors.
Standard front-illuminated CMOS sensors are constructed so that light (after passing through the lens) must then pass through a metal wiring grid before striking the light-sensitive pixel receptors. Consequently, some light is lost. Back-illuminated sensors position the wiring grid beneath the light sensitive pixel receptors – increasing light gathering capability by up to 200% over traditional CMOS sensors. This makes the diminutive WX1 a superb tool for capturing images in available light environments – an especially useful ability indoors, after dark, and in poor weather.
