Excellent pocket camera

I am a professional photographer and use the Nikon D90 and the Canon EOS system for my shoots. Frankly, the point and shoot cameras never interested me much due to their small sensor ( 1/2.3 inches) since resolution and detail is missing for my work.

However, its difficult to carry a DSLR with different lenses around all the time and one needs a small pocketable camera which can fit in and take casual shots when required.

Checked offerings from Canon, Nikon and Sony. Not Fuji or Pana, with ...

Awesome and amazing, highly recommended and worth!

Its really awesome and fully packed with features, full on direct editing on the camera and and latest, liked the 3D stills and 3D panorama and sweep panorama feature, The best feature is drop protection which protects the lens i.e. it automatically senses the drop and closes the lenses if the setting of drop protection is ok.
It also features blur background feature like the DSLRs.
Overall is worth and highly recommended.

sony dsc wx50 BIG ON FEATURES SMALL IN SIZE

this camera is a gem when compared to other cameras in the same price segment. the CMOS sensor detects color when the naked eyes can not even detect anything in the dark condition. the picture quality along with the DSLR like functions are absolutely professional like at this price point which keeps this camera ahead of anything available in the market to capture images. the carl ziess lens does its job very well and is better than the normal Sony lenses available in the market. the camera re...

Superb camera!

Frankly, in this price range you can't get anything better than this (as of this writing anyway!)
Pro's:
Excellent images
Exceptional low light performance (this is simply jaw dropping! Even in very very dark settings, the camera manages to make the most out of the available light, when you plan to use the flash, that too is excellent.. )
Very compact size (some people like the small size, some don't. I personally take it out on family trips and treks, for this alone, it is perfect!)
Wide arr...

*comparitively less noise in low light (as against powershot model)
*Wide angle shots
*background brurr and 3d panorama
*full HD videos
*no motion blurr due to s...

Is it worth it ?

With only 3D extra which we might seldom use without a 3D TV, this doesn't look like a real upgrade over the previous model which is the WX7...WX7 is also a lot cheaper...

I think it is wise to wait for the WX150 which will be released in few days time...With 10x optical zoom in the same thin body of WX7/WX50, that might really be the one to look out for upgrade...Waiting for it anxiously...

Sony WX150 might be better option than WX50

I have compared this camera vs the sony wx150 and finally bought the WX150. The WX50 is quite small and you would think that's good, right ? May be not...I felt it was somewhat of a drawback since you might not find it snugly fitting in your hands while shooting. Also the WX150 has better optical zoom (10X) which is quite worth the money. Other than the size and zoom, I found both cameras have exactly same menu and button arrangements. Of course the lens types are different, but for a casual ...

DSC-WX50 review - on the whole, not so happy

Pros :

- lightweight, compact
- HDR feature (called Painting effect in the UI) is useful for dramatic landscapes with clouds etc. eg. during monsoon
- low light images are brighter and more colourful than my previous camera (admittedly several years older)

Cons
- weird noise processing artifacts that look like "oil painting" like effects if you zoom in. Images tend to look good on the camera display, not so great when you get home and look at them on a computer screen.
- 720p HD video is ...
