Key Features

16x optical zoom

The Sony 16x optical zoom G lens brings distant subjects super close for great outdoors, sports, and travel photos. The compact size makes it easy to take with you in a pocket, purse, or backpack.

720p MP4 HD Movie Mode

In 720p MP4 movie mode, the DSC-H90 shoots 1280 x 720 high definition movies at 30 fps, a standard format when working with a PC. Users will create high quality movies with full use of optical zoom in files small enough to transfer to compatible PC or Mac computer.1 Once transferred to your computer and connected to the internet, you can effortlessly upload your media to popular photo and video-sharing websites such as Photobucket and YouTube.

Sweep Panorama mode-up to 360°

Reach beyond the traditional wide angle lens, and capture more breathtaking shots with Sweep Panorama mode. Simply press the shutter button and sweep the camera in the desired direction and the camera continuously shoots at a high speed, then seamlessly stitches the images together with automatic position adjustment to create one stunning panoramic image. Available in wide and up to 360° full circle, the DSC-H90 can take a variety of panoramic shots. Now capturing wide landscapes is as easy as press and sweep.

16.1 Megapixel Image Sensor

A powerful 16.1 megapixel Super HAD CCD image sensor helps you capture gorgeous images with superb contrast and clarity down to the finest detail. With 16.1 megapixels, you can create stunning, photo-quality prints up to A3+ (13x19 inch) size, or crop your images and still come away with high resolution shots.

http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/electronics/cat800/Sony/anti-blur_final._V140405806_.jpg

Optical SteadyShot image stabilization

Optical SteadyShot image stabilization uses a built-in gyro sensor to detect camera shake and automatically shifts the lens to help prevent blur without sacrificing image quality.


Intelligent Auto Mode

Unlike traditional auto mode, Intelligent Auto (iAuto) mode thinks for you, recognizing scenes, lighting conditions, faces, and adjusts settings resulting in clear images, faces with natural skin tone and less blur. Take advantage of all the technology without leaving Auto mode. Kids on the playground, landscape shots, a beautiful flower or an indoor birthday party; all result in clear images without leaving auto mode.

Picture Effect for more expressive photos

Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. Select camera models have up to nine different effects.

Photo Creativity

Photo Creativity allows you to fine-tune your exposure settings, such as brightness, color, and vividness, and quickly choose the right enhancement for your subject. Now you can view Picture Effects and Photo Creativity effects in real time on the camera’s monitor or in the viewfinder before shooting.

http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/electronics/cat800/Sony/with_facedetection_final._V140381984_.jpg

Face Detection technology

Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends.


Smile Shutter technology

http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/electronics/cat800/Sony/with_smileshutter_final._V140379385_.jpg

Smile Shutter technology captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply press the Smile Shutter button and the camera does the rest. You can also select adult and child priority andindicate the degree of Smile Detection sensitivity. Intelligent Scene Recognition can now be used together with Smile Shutter mode when the Intelligent Auto mode is on. This means that beautiful smiles can be captured with settings optimized for the particular scene, even in difficult conditions such as twilight and backlighting.



Anti-blink Function

It’s frustrating to capture the perfect shot, only to review it later and discover subjects blinked during the photo. The Anti-blink function works to help counter blinking and squinting. When the camera is set to Soft Snap, the Anti-blink function captures two images, recording only the photo with less squinting. If a blink is detected in other shooting modes, a warning will be displayed after you take the shot.

http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/electronics/cat800/Sony/with_softskin_final._V140378418_.jpg

Soft Skin mode

Portrait subjects will love the results. Soft Skin mode recognizes skin tones and reduces the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles without affecting the rest of the shot.

Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) Mode

Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) Mode automatically detects 33 different types of scenes and selects the appropriate camera settings. In Auto Mode, the camera takes a single shot using the optimal settings. In Advanced Mode, the camera takes a photo with the optimal settings and, if in difficult lighting (low light or back light) immediately takes a second photo with another optimized setting so you can choose which to keep.

http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/electronics/cat800/Sony/with_naturalflash_final._V140379724_.jpg

Natural Flash

Conventional point-and-shoot camera flash shots just don't capture colors the way the eye sees them. Natural Flash mode takes a reference shot without flash and then uses that reference to correct the color, for far more lifelike images.

Motion Detection

Motion Detection, along with Face Motion Detection adjusts ISO sensitivity and increases the shutter speed when movement is detected, reducing blur in moving subjects and faces.

I bought the bundle, which is a great deal. The case is simple but nice (and can store an extra memory card) and the 4GB card saves some money.

The camera itself has a tremendous amount of features, and takes very sharp pictures, even at extreme high zoom. The automatic setting is very clever, and makes smart decisions about lighting and flash--smarter than my 2-year-old Canon. Note: it's strange that a "force-flash" option is not allowed under full automatic mode, but hardly a deal-breaker as you can switch to partial-auto mode. The image stabilization is quite good.

The main con is the pop-up flash, which is annoying because my fingers tend to want to grip the camera there. Even 5 millimeters to the right and would have been no problem, but I suppose it was a compactness issue. The flash is quite powerful for a consumer camera.

Another silly issue is the included manual, which is horribly inadequate. Fortunately you can find a real manual online. The manual is needed because the camera has a lot of hidden complexity, especially if you want to use the top features.

Still, all and all, I'm quite happy with the value for the money, and to get 16x zoom in such a compact form.

I want to tell you somethings about this model:

What I like the most
- Resolution
- Smart Mode very simple and useful for no tech people
- Great movie resolution
- Did I mention the amazing Zoom resolution?
- All the characteristics are according to they said!

What I dislike
- Flash position, usually I put my left finger where the flash come out. It's a little bit annoying taking pictures using the flash. The publicity didn't mention where the flash is located, neither the specs. :S

- Battery: I cannot take more than 15 flash photos. The flash run out the power very fast. (Nov. 2012: it seems that it only happens during the first discharge, after that you can take more photos using the flash, I would say 50 or 60).

- Storage: Its SD Card cannot be read on a PC (Windows 7) It gives a message error, something like Couldn't read file format, and if I would like to format the SD Card. I have to use the camara to read the photos, and I need to use battery power, If the battery is discharged I cannot see the pictures.

Nov-2012

I looked for awhile for a camera that provided me with a great zoom. This camera didn't zoom as much as my old one, but because of the high MP, it actually takes better pictures and when I crop pictures it's a much clearer picture. I love it and the color !

Style Name: Camera OnlyColor Name: Black
I'm a hobby photographer and have tried a lot of point and shoots. I own the DSC H20 which takes some really great shots and pretty good videos. In fact it was the video quality that sold me on both of these cameras. What I don't like about either and maybe all Sony's are like this or maybe I just haven't figured out how to conquer this gremlin, the face recognition has to be reset to "off" every time I turn the camera back on. When I'm taking pictures constantly of my grand children I don't want to have to worry about that. I'm always forgetting and then can't take a picture because the camera is trying to focus on a face. I would think I could set it to "off" and it would stay there like everything else I set to "off". Other than that, this is a really great little camera! The Zoom is a blast to use, the 16.1 mps make for some very crisp photos and as I've said, I love the video quality. I returned this to try out a Canon and may end up going back to it, if the Canon disappoints me.

I looked for awhile for a pocket camera that provided me with a great zoom with a very wide angle lens, very convenient for this one, I often find myself in situations where you need to have a camera and use a lot of flash, one of the thing I like about this DSC-H90 is that SONY improves his flash metering (how the camera magically decides how much light to fire out of the flash) it does his work with outstanding image (it brings the high quality 16.1 megapixel sensor) quality, performance, and low-light capability in a lightweight, compact, also the video capture is another notable improvement in this DSC-H90.

In summary as a professional photographer, I'm quite happy with this DSC-H90, it takes accurately realistic photos, a plus when you don't carry on your professional Nikon D-SLR with you.

Style Name: BundleColor Name: Black Verified Purchase
The feature set for this camera is very good. My wife wanted to replace her 5 year old P&S camera to take pictures of our newborn baby and this camera was perfect.

However, the low- and medium-light autofocus on this camera is very, very poor. She took a dozen or so shots of our baby and I don't think a single one was properly focused. I shoot with a Sony Alpha DLSR so I like to think I have down the basics for focusing an auto-focus camera, and I had a very difficult time getting anything properly in focus. The orange AF illuminator seemingly did nothing; even with it, the camera would hunt around until it just guessed at a focus level. The couple shots I took outside in the sunlight seemed to focus just fine.

Unfortunately this camera needs to perform indoors, so I'll be returning it.
