From the Manufacturer
Cyber-shot DSC-W90 Highlights
8.1-megapixel 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 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 youll capture the personalities and emotions that make memories come alive.
The Sony Double Anti-Blur Solution With Super SteadyShot optical 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 output Thanks to Sony, your photo album can go high-def -- with direct HD output to compatible HDTV screens, so you can view DSC-W90 still photos in spectacular high-definition clarity and detail. Your life never looked so exciting!
Note: HD output requires an optional Sony HD connector cable; HDTV sold separately
HD slide show with music Its the high-definition viewing experience that makes photos come alive on compatible 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 its 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 Feature The Sony Smart Zoom feature intelligently "crops into" the central portion of interest in your photo, avoiding the image degradation of other digital zooms.
MPEG Movie VX Fine Mode Captures VGA (640 x 480) audio/video clips at high frame rate (up to 30 frames per second), with length limited only by the capacity of your media.
Stamina battery power The DSC-W90 provides up to 350 shots with a fully-charged NP-BG1 Lithium-ion battery -- enough shooting capacity to cover a long weekend or a whole vacation.
Picture Motion browser software Supplied software makes it easier to upload, organize and search photos on your PC -- and provides a convenient map view function to sort photos by location and display their origin on a world map by using an optional GPS unit.

I had my choices narrowed down between a Canon and the Sony W90. My daughter has an older P200 Sony and it takes fantastic pictures so I opted for the W90. The first few daylight pictures I took showed color blotching (not noisy or grainy) when viewed at actual size on the computer. Low light photos also had MUCH more noise visible than the P200 even at ISO 200. I have now taken ~1000 pictures in all lighting conditions and would rate the camera as follows:
Bright light/ daylight outside: Excellent pictures
Medium light /clouds: Very good to excellent
Dusk and night shots: Amazing! especially with high ISO setting
Medium/Low indoor lighting: good (with post processing)
Indoor lighting with flash: Grainy with auto setting, Good with 200ISO
I was initially disappointed that the picture quality with indoor lighting without flash was not as good as my daughters P200.Read more ›
One feature I wish the W90 had is the ability to turn off the screen and have it show the picture just taken briefly and then shut off again. That probably would save on the battery. Also, if shooting every few minutes, one could disable the auto shut off and leave the camera on for the duration instead of turning it off and on frequently.
This is the first time I have bought a camera without a card. Usually there is some small useless card with the camera and you have to run out and buy a larger one. This camera does not come with a card so I ordered the 2 gig memory stick along with it as a package.
If you're looking for a small point-and-shoot camera, this one is great, but it definitely has red eye issues for indoor pics with the flash, so be warned! The good news though is that this camera has red-eye removal software right in the camera. I would say it works about 80% of the time, which I think is very good. The rest I just remove in Photoshop or Shutterfly.
I did some research online and talked to some camera experts and I found out that red-eye is a very common problem with these small point-and-shoot cameras. It's unfortunately just the way this camera is designed - the lens is just so close to the flash.
If you buy this, definitely get a big 1 gig (or bigger) card so you can hold lots of pictures and video. Also I would recommend a 2nd battery so when 1 is charging in the wall, you can be using the other one.
- Small and compact
- Very slick design & very attractive (I have the black one)
- Good menu navigation
- Good photo quality, especially outdoors
- Red Eye Removal Software right in camera
- I love the Lithium Batteries - Great battery life
- Image Stabilizer and Face Detection - not as many blurry pics as the W50
- Decent Zoom
- 8 megapixels
- Video with sound
- Lots of different modes, although I never use them
- Major red-eye issues
- Still some blurry photos with flash off
- I can't crop the videos!!! :( I could with my W50. I don't know why they removed this great feature. I am VERY disappointed.Read more ›
