8.1 MP Super HAD CCD - With more megapixels than most Digital cameras, the DSC-W90 captures greater image definition so you can make big prints and tight crops without losing detail. The advanced Sony Super HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD design allows more light to pass to each Pixel, increasing Sensitivity and reducing noise.

Carl Zeiss 3X Optical Zoom Lens Design - A top-quality Carl Zeiss 3X Optical Zoom Lens design helps the DSC-W90 bring distant subjects closer and lets you frame shots quickly for better composition -- a real advantage for family sports, outdoor fun and travel photos.

Face Detection - By automatically controlling focus, exposure, color and flash, this new Sony feature reveals faces in shadow, makes skin tones look more natural and eliminates harsh facial glare -- to help bring out every expression on every face in every shot, so you''ll capture the personalities and emotions that make memories come alive.

The Sony Double Anti-Blur Solution - With Super SteadyShot Image Stabilization and high Sensitivity (ISO 3200), the DSC-W90 compensates for shaky hands, minimizes blur, brightens images and allows flash-free shooting to preserve the mood -- with Sony Clear RAW Noise Reduction to take care of the picture noise that can ruin low-light shots.

HD Output1 - Thanks to Sony, your photo album can go high-def -- with direct HD output1 to your HDTV screen, so you can view DSC-W90 still photos in spectacular High Definition clarity and detail. Your life never looked so exciting!

HD Slide Show with Music - It''s the high-definition viewing experience that makes photos come alive on HDTV screens, accompanied by your choice of visual effects and any of four preset musical selections stored in memory or your favorite MP3 tunes downloaded from PC to your camera for use as background music.

9-Point Auto Focus - Because an off-center subject can make your shot more interesting, the DSC-W90 can measure auto-focus precision at 9 points on your screen -- giving you greater creative freedom to compose your image.

D-Range Optimization - Powered by the exclusive Sony Bionz high-speed processing engine, D-Range Optimization preserves image data in bright highlights and reveals more detail in shadows or backlit areas -- for great results even in difficult lighting conditions.

In-Camera Retouching - The DSC-W90 lets you add creative effects to photos after you shoot -- including soft edge filter to soften backgrounds, cross filter to place starry dazzles at highlight points, partial color filter to mute surrounding colors, even fish-eye filter to create interesting fish-eye lens effects.

In-Camera Red-Eye Reduction - Irritating glowing eyes can ruin even the most creative photos -- so the DSC-W90 provides in-camera correction at the touch of a button to reduce lingering red-eye effect that other systems might miss.

Large 2.5-inch LCD Screen - The DSC-W90 provides a large, bright LCD Screen for composing shots, checking results, sharing your photos on location -- and an optical viewfinder allows shooting in traditional rangefinder camera style.

Simple Setup Controls - A quick press of the Home button opens your user-friendly GUI -- and you can select functions by simply moving a cursor vertically or horizontally to the appropriate icon. Function names and the on-screen Function Guide Display make it easier to learn camera setup operations.

31 MB Internal Memory - The DSC-W90 allows you to capture a large number of images without a Flash Memory card, so it''s great for traveling or for quick candid snapshots.

Memory Stick Duo Media Convenience - A built-in slot accepts optional Memory Stick Duo media or Memory Stick PRO Duo Media -- the compact, high-capacity storage media that make it easily to upload photos to your computer or make lab-quality prints at home on your Sony Picture Station Digital printer (sold separately).

15X Smart Zoom Feature4 - The Sony Smart Zoom feature intelligently crops into the central portion of interest in your photo, avoiding the image degradation of other Digital zooms.

Stamina Battery Power - The DSC-W90 provides up to 350 shots3 with a fully charged NP-BG1 Lithium Ion battery -- enough shooting capacity to cover a long weekend or a whole vacation.

Comments about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W90 Digital Camera:

After forty years of shooting film SLR cameras, I bought the DSC-W90 for its small size and to get use to the digital side of picture taking before going to a DSLR. To my surprise this camera takes sharp, clear, pictures with good color. The controls are easy to use, and understand. The 8.1 MP gives great 4X6 and very good 11X14 pictures. While it won't take the place of my SLRs I will always carry the W90 (or one like it ) because of its size and good picture taking ability.

Comments about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W90 Digital Camera:

Great all around camera, takes awesome photos. Also quick to startup, and quick to write to memory stick- so less lag between shots. The only con is the 3x zoom, but you can't find more than that on a compact camera. I have had a Canon Rebel, Kodak Z-740, Kodak P-850, Sony DSC-W70, Kodak v603, Kodak v803, and this, and for vacation, travel, and beach photos is the best. Also it is fast enough to get good pictures of the kids, and the pictures come out great.

Simple Controls, Small and light

Color quality, Low-Quality Pictures
Best Uses:
Everyday, Low Lighting, Travel
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W90 Digital Camera:

The reason I bought the Sony DSC-W90 is because I had Sony DSC-P92 camera and I was impressed with the picture quality. After 3 days of testing the new DSC-W90, I am not impressed with this 8.1 MP camera. The color is not natural, picture is not very clear, and when I view the picture on the computer at actual size I see a lot of extra dots and uneven lines (noise) in the picture. I bought my camera in Los Angeles and it is made in China. Not a good sign.
