Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 Review

July 3, 2013 | Matt Grayson | Rating star Rating star Rating star Rating star


The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 is a stylish, slim digital compact with a 16 megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, 8x optical zoom, Full HD video in AVCHD format and a range of fun Picture effects. That's a lot to pack into a diminutive frame. Has Sony managed to pull it off, or will it fall flat on its face? In this review, we find out just what it's capable of. Priced at around £150, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 is available in white and black.

Ease of Use

These days, a lot of digital cameras come with an internal memory. Ten years ago, that was a luxury, but now it's actually more unusual for a camera not to have it. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 does have an internal memory, but it's only capable of holding eight full sized images and won't even entertain video. So it's no surprise that it doesn't come with a memory card in the box. Cameras rarely do these days. What you do get, though, is an AC adaptor, USB lead (called Multi USB, but most likely because it charges the battery and downloads pictures – not necessarily at the same time), lithium ion battery, manual and wrist strap. The AC adaptor plugs into the mains and then the USB lead plugs into that and into the camera at the other end. That's how you charge the battery. Our test box came with a European two-pin plug for the mains, but it's a regular figure eight plug at the other end, so a stereo lead will work.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 is a sexy little camera. We tested the white version, which has a lovely glossy exterior and silver trim. The lens is a little bit too big for the body, so it juts out around 5mm or so. It's an 8x optical zoom lens that covers a hearty distance of 25-200mm in 35mm terms. The lens is designed by Carl Zeiss and made by Sony under the German manufacturer's guidance. The bezel has a rounded finish to blend the additional size in with the rest of the body. Operation of the zoom is done by rotating the switch that is located wrapped around the shutter release button on the top of the camera.

It's funny, but little quirks can be detected when looking at a camera to see how much money has been invested into the building of it. For example, on the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60's zoom switch, the front of it is squared off. This is done so that it doesn't overhang the front of the camera and spoil the aesthetic design of it. A camera positioned lower in the market wouldn't have this. It's done to appeal to a certain demographic. A tiny plastic square situated next to the shutter release is the power button. It sits flush with the body to avoid being pressed by accident.

The back of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 is 95% screen, which just goes to show how small the camera is because it's only a 2.7 inch type. To save time, Sony have fitted a wheel to the camera instead of buttons. This allows rapid selections of modes and features and while you may get a bit muddled at first, practice makes perfect. In the top right of the screen, there's a small switch to select between still, panoramic or video shooting. The panoramic mode also allows you to choose one of three Picture effects to go with your panoramic picture. The same goes with the video mode. If you try the Picture effects in the shooting mode, there's a lot more. Six more to be precise; totalling nine.

Exmor R is a type of sensor designed by Sony. It's a back-illuminated sensor which means that all the circuitry that normally surrounds each pixel has been placed on the back. It resembles a traditional sensor that's been turned around – which is how it gets it's name. The reason that Sony do this is to allow more light to pass onto each pixel because the circuitry normally obstructs the pixels to a degree. The result is increased performance in low light situations.

Another way of dealing with low light is to increase the ISO. This has it's own pitfalls with increased noise, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 appears to use MFNR (Multi Frame Noise Reduction) technology in a bid to increase the picture quality. It works by taking multiple images and merging them to create one (nearly) noise free image.

For newcomers to the Sony digital compacts, the menu system could be a real let down. It's a veritable minefield with different menus strewn all over the place. Most features are located in the Main menu which is accessed using the appropriately titled Menu button. Here you'll find all your shooting modes such as resolution, ISO, white-balance and exposure compensation.

 The set-up menu, which is reserved for little used features or modes that control the deeper areas of the camera is found within the Main menu and has an icon of a toolbox. There's also an In Camera guide (the question mark) which has it's own separate areas for learning. Turning the wheel will open up a Mode menu to change the shooting style, such as Program, Intelligent auto, Superior auto, Scenes or 3D. If you flick into panorama or video, you can choose whether you want to shoot in the Picture effects or a standard style.

It would be great if these could all be in one area or split into two clear menus, but they're a bit higgledy piggledy and it can be problematic remembering where they are. Once in the menu, it's easy to use, clear and concise. Aside from the set-up and camera guide, there doesn't seem to be any menus-in-menus.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 has a fast continuous shooting mode of 10fps (frames per second). The camera will shoot the frames while you hold the button down. It stops at ten, unless you take your finger off the button first. After the full ten frames have been taken, it takes a further nine seconds to record them to the card using a Class 6 memory card. From cold, the camera is pretty slow taking just under three seconds to start up, get itself sorted, focus and take a picture. The average is around 2.5 seconds and while that doesn't sound a massive difference, it could be if it's the kids doing something funny that you want to remember.

Once you've taken the pictures, you'll want to view them on the screen. It's worth bearing in mind that the screen is such a massively different resolution to the monitor at home, that the pictures can – and sometimes do – look different in colour, exposure, level of detail or sharpness. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 does a pretty good job of keeping it realistic. Playback mode can be accessed either with the camera on or off. Pressing the display button (DISP), you can choose between no information, lots of information or basic information. If you choose the lots, it adds in all sorts from ISO, white-balance and aperture to exposure compensation setting and even a histogram. Basic info will show you the battery, resolution, file number and position on the card and the time & date.

Image Quality

We took all photographs with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 at full resolution. While the camera has several options for reducing the amount of pixels it uses to change the aspect ratio, there's no options to adjust the compression rate. However, file sizes are relatively small. The largest we got was around the 4.5Mb mark.


The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 has a sensitivity range starting at ISO 100 and scrolling through to ISO 12800. At low ISO, performance is great – although that's what we'd expect. There's no worry of noise showing through and edge definition looks great. As we move through the stages, a little breakdown in image quality begins to occur at ISO 400, but this can only be seen at full magnification, so it's nothing to worry about. This slowly turns into salt & pepper noise. The biggest drop in quality happens at ISO 1600 with darker areas taking on a muddier appearance. Again, this is only really noticeable at full magnification.

Edge definition starts to fail at ISO 3200 and the noise reduction software tries to desaturate primary colours to reduce the amount of colour noise starting to come into the picture.

ISO 6400 and 12800 use a different technique called “pixel binning”. It works by taking six pictures, merging them together, analysing them and discarding the worst pixels from each one. This can reduce the resolution, so a feature called Pixel Super Resolution is used to make them back up. It's unclear exactly how the science behind this works, but it's most likely similar to interpolation which is what Fujifilm used on their SuperCCD sensors. Interpolation works by examining two pixels and adding one in between with a colour based on the results of the neighbouring pixels. It's powerful stuff, but always has room for error. To try and avoid the errors, Sony also use another noise preventative measure called Adaptive Noise Reduction. This feature will reduce different amounts of noise in different parts of the picture instead of one steady swipe.

Despite this innovative approach, ISO 12,800 images are truly awful. There's little or no detail, writing on the lens of our test shot has practically vanished. Noise is thick and blobby with horrid purple and green discolouration. Our only thought as to anything positive towards this setting is that at least it's there.

Focal Range

The 8x optical zoom on the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 works out at 25-200mm in 35mm terms. It's a great zoom range on such a small camera and helps a lot when needing to get closer to subjects that you can't normally get to, such as animals at the zoo on a family day out.

Adding sharpening only seems to increase the appearance of noise on pictures from the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60.

Chromatic Aberrations

Chromatic aberrations are generally seen as thin blue, green, orange or purple lines on contrasting edges. It manifests because not all colours have managed to focus on the sensor correctly. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 handles the phenomenon nicely. We struggled to find much of it on any of the pictures. The best we could find was some faint discolouration on extreme edges of the frame.

Chromatic Aberrations 2 (100% Crop)

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 has a close up focusing of 5cm. It's sufficiently far away enough to not cause much of a problem with barrel distortion but image quality drops of quite dramatically relatively close to the middle.

Without flash, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 gets a little vignetting at wide-angle, but this disappears at full zoom. Using flash simply exacerbates the vignetting at wide-angle and brightens the frame at full zoom. The camera doesn't get red-eye in the traditional sense. It does get a bit of chromatic aberration which gives the appearance of red-eye and the camera seems to alleviate this somewhat.

We took three test shots at dawn. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 was tested twice in program mode using a fixed ISO and auto ISO, then once in the Night scene mode. Even at ISO 100 and with a back-illuminated sensor, the WX60 suffers from noise so much that noise reduction software has been employed to reduce it in the frame. The auto ISO shot looks worse because it uses a higher sensitivity to increase the shutter speed.

Interestingly, the best results have come from the Night scene shot, which also uses a high ISO rating, but the camera is set up for darker images, so uses the correct amount of sharpening to increase the amount of detail available. The noise reduction smudging is still an issue, but the higher amount of detail offsets it to a degree.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 is a slim, sexy little camera designed to be used by the beautiful crowd in a club or on holiday. Or is it? You see, the Carl Zeiss lens will appeal to users more familiar with photographic manufacturers and the Exmor R sensor will bring a smile to the face of people who like to experiment with light. None of these people can be categorised into one convenient faction.

It seems that the WX60 is a decent all-rounder. It does well in all fields, but excels in none. For example, the build quality is good, but it's not excellent; picture quality is great, but suffers in some areas; and the menu system is comprehensive, but not the easiest to use.

What we like about the Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 is that the bits that Sony have put on it are great. The lens quality is brilliant for a camera at this price. There's little or no chromatic aberration and barrel distortion is minimal. Not to mention the decent 8x optical zoom. However, the stepping on it is too vague. We'd prefer something more precise. We often went over the maximum optical zoom and into the intelligent zoom section because there's no break.

The sensor is back-illuminated and not insanely high in the pixel count. It looks on every count to be a camera that has had common sense applied, with a healthy dose of restraint.

While this conclusion could be considered as negative, it's not. The WX60 is a very worthy camera for many people looking for a good looking point and shooter for everyday use. The automatic controls will help with day to day shooting and the digital effects will add an element of fun to your photography.

If you're in the market for a new camera and you want something for around £150 that has a good lens, looks pretty and produces good pictures in decent light, then the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX60 could be for you.
