Conclusion: Still believing that â€˜thin is still inâ€™, the Cyber-shot T90 is an ultra-compact which is no more than two thirds of an inch thick. Launched together with the T900 (which I reviewed a while back), the Cyber-shot T90 is essentially a slightly smaller, slimmer version of its pricier sibling.
Pros: Image quality is JUST usable, up till ISO 400, Slimmest camera on the market; packs a 4X zoom lens with image stabilization, 3 inch touchscreen LCD (though it has some issues), Quick performance, Elaborate face/smile detection system, redeye removal, 720p HD movie mode recording with selectable bit rates and optical zoom, Fancy playback tools (ie Paint, effects and color filters)
Cons: Over-processed photos and strong noise reduction (complete with softness and artifacts), No manual controls; lacks slow shutter for night shots, Slow burst mode, Poor ergonomics; LCD attracts fingerprints, not much space to hold the camera, tiny zoom controller, Touchscreen interface needs firm presses; too many presses to reach certain settings and no touch gestures to ease operation, Unintuitive and confusing dual menu system (conventional and home menus; the latter...
Summary: During my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T90 review, I showed the camera to a few people, receiving plenty of "oohs" and "aahs" from each person. The bright body colors and slide panel on the front of the DSC-T90 make it a very impressive looking digital camera. Then, when they saw the large touch screen LCD, the "oohs" turned into, "How can I buy this camera?" There's no question: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T90 is a great looking camera.
Pros: Very stylish looking and cool camera is available in five colors, Macro (close-up) focus is outstanding; easily can shoot text documents, Touch screen LCD is a handy feature, Response times are pretty fast, Zoom feature on LCD is great for making sure photo is in perfect focus
Cons: Camera needs more scene mode options, LCD can be a little tough to see in bright sunlight, Low-light images subject to a lot of noise, Camera's automatic settings sometimes don't work perfectly
Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T90 is a fine camera to pop in your pocket and have with you all the time for quick snapshots and video clips. Although it has a number of flaws, and is truly an aim-and-forget camera, you’ll be happy with the results, and won’t have to think twice about them. We only wish Sony would cut the price of the optional HD video cable.
Excerpt: Sony’s T90 is such a cute and clever piece of design it’s almost irrelevant whether function follows its beguiling form. After a few minutes of handling and admiring this super-slim newcomer, its image quality could have been on a par with the Agfa Clack box camera from the mid-1950s for all I cared. Well, not quite, and more on that later. The T90 is a member of the new Cyber-shot range introduced earlier this year.
Pros: Great looks and styling, Fits any pocket, So easy to use
Cons: Too much of a fashion statement?, Pricey, Few advanced features
Excerpt: The glossy T90 is the latest in a line of fashion conscious Sony Cyber-shot touch screen compacts - coming after the T77 and T500, rated on Photography Blog earlier this year. Like both earlier models it features a sliding faceplate that covers and protects the lens when not in use, and also acts as another means of activating the camera when it is slid open.
