Capture more details and less blur. With 8.1MP, Super SteadyShot image stabilization and high sensitivity (ISO 3200), the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W90 is great for big prints and shooting low-light shots without flash to preserve the mood. Face Detection brings out the best in every face. In-camera retouching and red-eye reduction help you improve every shot, and HD Output lets you share memories with family and friends in spectacular high-definition clarity on HDTV screens.
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. 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.

By automatically controlling focus, exposure, color and flash, the new Sony Face Detection 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. 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.

Thanks to Sony, your photo album can go high-def with direct HD output to your HDTV screen, so you can view DSC-W90 still photos in spectacular high definition clarity and detail. The HD Slide Show with Music feature 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.

Because an off-center subject can make your shot more interesting, the DSC-W90 can measure auto-focus precision at nine points on your screen, giving you greater creative freedom to compose your image. 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. The DSC-W90 also 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 correction at the touch of a button to reduces lingering red-eye effect that other systems might miss.
