I bought this camera REFURBISHED on ebay for a very reasonable price. The DSC-W90 is their Super SteadyShot, and I was fascinated by the idea of not having to hold my hands perfectly still for every shot. That took too much concentration, and I take so many photos that I shoot quickly and move on.
My last camera was a Kodak, and half the photos I took were blurry, so this camera turned out to be a miracle for me. IT TRULY DELIVERS!! I should note that bigger movements still blur, but not the little accidental ones that occur when you're trying to be still.
I don't quite know what someone does to "refurbish" a camera. But I've had this one for what seems like forever. It looks new, and works like a new camera. Plus, I recall that the price was especially low.
I get bored reading instructions, so I usually skip that part. This camera has been so easy to use that it hasn't been a problem. I've just experimented with the different settings. Everything from the battery recharging to loading pics is a breeze.
My pics must be pretty decent because folks are constantly asking me what camera I use. Well, this is it. I'd be lost without it.
To make this simple, it's the best in my opinion for below reasons:
1. QUALITY OF PHOTOS IS SPECTACULAR. NO COMPLAINTS.
2. EASE OF USE
3. IT'S VERY COST EFFECTIVE (even a brand new one)
4. HAS IMPORTANT STEADYSHOT FUNCTION THAT IMPROVES PHOTOS & SAVES YOU TIME.
Regarding number 4, my favorite, time is money!
Of course it has other features which make it even more desireable.
But for ebay, I know we all care most about photos.
There are many higher end, higher priced cameras out there.
But I feel like I seriously hit the jackpot with this one.
If my review was at all helpful, PLEASE choose YES. Thank you!
I have owned this camera for 3 or 4 years and love everything about it. I keep it in my purse always and the size lets me do that easily. It takes unbelievable pictures too.
My dtr recently needed a new camera, and rather than buy a new higher megapixel camera, I chose to look for this one on eBay. I got a fantastic deal and ended up buying a 3rd one for my husband to use. I have never been disappointed with the quality of picture this camera can produce and highly recommend it.
One thing it has that you can't find on newer point and shoots is a viewfinder. I know you think you may never need it, but try framing a picture on the beach sometime using the screen, and you'll be glad to have it!
The Cyber-Shot DSC-W90 offers many of the same options found on past models, like the Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 3x optical zoom lens, large 2.5-inch LCD, 640x480 VX Fine movie mode as well as a durable all metal body. This new model also boasts 8-megapixels of resolution, a maximum ISO speed to 3200 (one of the highest settings found on a consumer point-n-shoot), Sony's Super Steady Shot® optical image stabilization, a 9 Area Multi-point AF with their new face detection technology, etc. With Auto, Program AE, and 7 preprogrammed scene modes (including High ISO), the W90 is sure to have an exposure mode to suit the needs or experience of every user in your household or office.
Just as previous models, the W90 is well built and stylish. Durability is addressed with the all metal construction,with exception of the battery/memory card door. The controls are well placed, offering a comfortable feel while capturing your photos. The menu system got a face lift. While the arrangement of settings is similar to past models, the W90 adds a new Home menu. This gives you access to virtually all of the settings available. While I feel the old menu system worked very well, it only took me a few times using the camera to get aquatinted with the new setup.
One feature that I love about Sony's "W" series models, is that so far (as of 5/2007) they retain the optical viewfinder. Many manufacturers are sparing this useful tool to accommodate these large LCDs. While most users use the LCD to frame most of the time, the optical viewfinder comes in handy when trying to conserve battery life or when following moving subjects in burst mode. I found its 2.5-inch display worked great when shooting outdoors in bright sunlight, with only a few angles that reflected the sun. When shooting in low lighting the display "gains up" nicely to help you see your subject. I also found the LCD is prone to showing fingerprints, so you'll find yourself wiping it off quite regularly.
The W90 is a robust performer. Power up to first image captured measured just 2 seconds. Shutter lag, the time between depressing the shutter release and capturing an image, was less than 1/10 second when pre- focused and only 1/10 second including autofocus time! The shot to shot delay measured a fast 1.3 seconds without the flash and between 2.5 and 3 seconds using the flash, depending on subject distance and battery life. In Burst mode, I was able to capture 10 full resolution images in just 3.8 seconds, without billing the buffer. The LCD only briefly displays the last captured image between shots, making it somewhat usable to follow moving subjects; this is when the optical viewfinder comes in handy. Our tests were done using a Sony 1GB Memory Stick PRO Duo card, 8M quality, Program mode, flash off, preview off, and all other settings at default (unless otherwise noted.) Times may vary depending on lighting conditions, camera settings, media, etc. 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, and, with that much resolution, the printing possibilities are almost endless
I have been using this camera for a few months. The w-80 and the w-90 are the same basic camera. My wife and I both use a w-80 and have purchased a w-90 which has not come in yet. I like the fact you can purchase these camera's on ebay very cheaply and they are very good little picture makers. I have been around shooting pictures for the last 35 years and know a lot about cameras and how to make them work. If you have just a little bit of knowledge you can make this point and shoot do just about anything within the limitations of the camera. I like the fact it's made mostly of metal. I like the fact that it has a viewfinder. The menu is not that great but when you get use to getting around in it, its not all that bad. There are no manuel controls but if you know when to change the iso and the ev value and the different modes I find I can do a lot with this little camera. I do like the size of it also. I've had a smaller camera but I would'nt want one any smaller than this one. It will fit just about any pocket. I have larger much better camera that does much more but it's too much trouble to carry some places. This is a mom and pop point and shoot those great pic's of the kids,flowers and many other things. It is a camera that you can always have in your pocket that make good pictures and movies. I think it is a great little camera that cost alot a few years ago but today you can get cheapppppppp.
Already own one and thought it would be nice to have a back-up because they no longer make these (or any mini-digitals) with a viewfinder. Takes great pictures and the seller included a battery charger, battery and USB connector along with the camera. Camera was in great shape and takes the same quality pics as the one I have had for years - all for an acceptable price.
