        Well...i totally disagree with these findings. I believe the WX10 is far more capable and quality supreme. I have tested this in comparison to the one's mentioned here (friends have them) along with other point-n-shoot cameras. So far the WX10 has come out on top. Not just my personal opinion but friends, relatives and others. All Sony point-n-shoot seem hungry for light but you have a vast selection of settings to fix that among other settings to deal with various other wants and desired shots.
        With any camera the default settings should be compared right away with the settings you choose to find the best results. Lets also not forget the prices for these mentioned for what you get. I also compared the images with my DSLR's Nikon mainly and...amazed. Treat it well and it will treat YOU well. The key: Settings for what you are after.
