  • Conventional wisdom suggests that the smaller the camera, the lower its image quality. Whilst that’s still mainly true, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 does pack a hefty punch for such a slimline snapper. You’ll be very hard-pressed to tell its photos apart from the bigger, pricier DSC-WX350 thanks to the well-resolved detail, punchy colour reproduction and unobtrusive noise levels.


  • Reasonably priced, with good performance, a decent zoom range and fine in-camera processing abilities, the WX220 is a good choice for an all-round compact.


  • Once again, Sony has produced something which is capable of producing some excellent images, but it has a unique set of quirks when it comes to usability that you only get with QX cameras.
    The idea behind these cameras that they give you lots more flexibility than your average smartphone, and of course, that is true, but when using it becomes so much more difficult than your phone - or indeed - a standard smartphone, the appeal of them starts to wear off.


  • The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 stands out as a very capable travelzoom camera. Its Exmor R sensor doesn’t fall foul of some of the image quality pitfalls prevalent in cameras using the same size of sensor and produces very pleasing photos with good detail, punchy colours and well-controlled noise.
    The camera's optics don’t let the side down either, and neither do its exposure metering or autofocus systems.


  • If you miss having a zoom lens, but don't want to add too much bulk and weight to your travels, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 is a very good choice.


  • The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 is a simple picture taking machine. We mentioned this earlier and we still hold strong to the belief. The lack of quirky (gimmicky?) picture effects and Instagram style filters show that Sony think much more of this camera than something to snare a trendy market. This is a camera for keen amateurs who want a slim, good looking compact with great features where it counts. Except the tripod bush.


  • The Sony Cybershot DSC-WX300 is an extremely small compact, particularly when you consider it packs a 20x optical zoom lens and Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi makes it easy to share images with smartphones and tablets, as well as using them as a remote control. On the downside, image quality isn't the best, images aren't as packed with detail as you'd hope and there is some purple fringing and chromatic aberration.


  • Ultimately the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-QX10 just falls a little short, regardless of whether you're a smartphone or compact shooter. It doesn't quite come up to scratch in terms of performance, feature-set or image quality, and is also a little over-priced too, perhaps inevitable given that it's a first-generation product. At the moment we'd choose a smartphone and wi-fi enabled compact to quickly share images, though that solution has its own challenges.


  • The Sony Cyber-shot QX10 is a compact, but not ultra-compact digital camera, with Wi-Fi for a direct connection to your smartphone, running Android or iOS. Without the connection you can still take photos but will be left to guesswork regarding whether you are getting the photo you want.

    The camera does not have a flash, and can not use the LED from your smartphone, therefore in darkness, you may actually be better off using your smartphone with LED flash, than the QX10.
