The Sony Cyber Shot DSC-S90 is a great digital camera for beginner and intermediate users alike. Even advanced users may find something special in this well built, easily accessible camera.
The camera itself is considered as a 'Point and Shoot' meaning that this is a camera that can be taken anywhere and does not require any expert knowledge to take great looking photos.
What allows this easy use is the automatic mode on the camera. The automatic mode allows you to take photos without the need to adjust various settings because the camera does all of this itself. This is proved to be a very, very useful option for people who no not want to sit there playing about with all the camera settings. However, if you are one that wants to change the camera settings yourself this can easily be done with this camera as well by simply changing to the manual mode.
In all, there are 12 scene modes which can be used corresponding to the setting you want to take a picture in. Here is a list of them below:
Auto - All settings are automatically corrected, so whenever you take a picture the camera will try its best to set everything at a correct value so you get great looking, sharp, clear images.
Manual - This mode allows you to change the settings and values yourself.
Night mode - This is a mode best used when in dark areas (like at night). The camera will adjust all settings for best results in low-light conditions.
Candle - This mode would be best for images that glow such as candles, lights and other luminous objects.
Snow - A mode in which is best used in conditions such as snowy weather. The camera will adjust ISO and brightness settings so everything is not so bright in a snowy setting.
Sun/Tropical/Scenery - This mode is best used when you are in a bright, sunny setting. The camera will attempt to cut out some of the over yellow tones in the picture due to the sun shining. It will also make great use of the cameras ability to focus on scenery objects such as trees, lakes and other natural forms.
Distant Objects - This mode could be proved useful when taking pictures of distant objects such as mountains and hills.
People - This mode can be used when taking pictures of people. The camera will try to make use of its automatic correction to get best results from peoples skin tone, and other details associated with people.
Not only are there all of these picture modes but the camera also features a video (with sound) option. This option will allow you to record extensive video with sound to capture all the great times in life.
It must be said that the camera does not come with an additional memory stick (like most camera on the market) so at default the camera will use its internal 32mb memory. 32mb may actually be enough for people who want to take lower resolution pictures with this camera but for people who are looking to take high quality/high resolution shots, an additional memory stick would be recommended. 32mb is still considered to be a good amount for a cameras internal memory though.
Talking about resolution and image quality brings me to the camera's core specification - its mega pixels. The camera features a large 4.1 mega pixel functionality with a 3x optical zoom. The lens on the camera is of very high quality, it being a Carl Zeiss. All of these specifications combined make for great looking photos to share with friends and family or for your own personal use.
This sums up my fairly basic review of the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-S90. My personal feeling with this camera is that it is of high quality. Well built, tough, and I can see it lasting for a very long time. Not only this, but its great specifications and ease of use makes photography a joy for any user. Overall, this camera succeeds in all areas it is aimed at with great looking, sharp and clear images.
I would also like to take time here to say the picture selected by dooyoo staff of the camera is not correct. It may be best to change that to the correct picture. Thanks.
