Sony CyberShot DSC-W90 Reviews
CNET.UK reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-W90 and writes;
” n our tests, the W90 fared similar to the W80, with a quicker shutter but otherwise slightly slower performance. After a 1.7-second wait from power-on to first shot, the W90 could capture a new picture every 1.3 seconds with the onboard flash disabled.”
PCAdvisor reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-W90 and writes;
” the Sony DSC W90 took just 2 seconds to boot up… The vivid colours are better than reality, which makes the Sony DSC W90 perfect for capturing those holiday pictures. Speedy performance with a rich list of features and good ergonomics the Sony DSC W90 is an excellent camera. ”
Steve’sDigicams reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-W90 and writes;
” Sony has created another welcomed addition to their already popular Cyber-shot “W” series. It offers speedy performance, great image quality, and loads of high-end features, all packed in a very compact and durable shell.”
DigitalTrends reviews the Sony CyberShot DSC-W90 and writes;
” I have no problems recommending this latest addition to the W series. It’s compact, speedy, easy-to-use, and takes good-quality photographs. However, I’ll keep squawking about the lack of a cable for the touted HD Output on your HDTV. If that isn’t a problem for you, by all means, buy it.”

Sony CyberShot DSC-W90 Press Release
LAS VEGAS, Feb. 27, 2007 Designed to make photo viewing entertaining and fun, Sony announced today its new Cyber-shot® W-series digital cameras featuring high-definition component output. These new cameras offer simple and direct connection to an HDTV set so you can easily integrate full 1080 HD photo viewing into your home theater.
At the top of the line is the DSC-W200 camera, the most compact 12-megapixel camera in the industry. It’s followed by the 8-megapixel DSC-W90 unit and the 7.2-megapixel DSC-W80 model. All sport Carl Zeiss® 3x optical zoom lenses; traditional, eye-level viewfinders; and large, 2.5-inch LCD screens wrapped in sleek metal bodies.
Seeing Is Believing in High Definition
These new cameras can help you turn your photos into an entertainment experience thanks to their high-definition outputs. As HDTV becomes more pervasive in American households, it is only natural to want to view all of your content in high definition, including photos, said Phil Lubell, director for digital cameras at Sony Electronics. “Our new cameras support a shift in customer behavior — from viewing digital photos on a PC to having a full entertainment experience in the living room.
Sony is offering three accessory options to begin enjoying high-definition photo viewing. The new cameras are compatible with the Sony VMC-MHC1 high-definition component cable for simple connection to an HDTV set.
The cameras can also be used with the new Sony CSS-HD1 high-definition Cyber-shot Station®, which comes with the component cable. You can connect the cameras to the station just one time, and it will also work as a charger for the camera.
For complete integration into your home theater system, there is the DSC-W80HDPR kit, which bundles a DSC-W80 camera and Sony’s DPP-FPHD1 printer package. This package consists of the VMC-MHC1 high-definition component cable, a Cyber-shot cradle, a remote commander, and a digital photo printer with high-definition component output.
This new printer lets you print photos on the spot in about 45 seconds. Designed to complement any living room, it comes in elegant black and can be positioned horizontally or vertically.
All of the new cameras feature a built-in slide show function. You can play back your images with pans, fades and wipe transitions set to your choice of music clips.
