Sony Cyber-Shot S90

Digital Photography Interface
21 April 2007
  • Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot S90 is a great camera, comparable to others in its class. Battery life is excellent, especially given the large LCD on and using only 2 AAs. The S90 feels tough, even on the memory card and battery doors. The grip is good though its surface is not rubber based. Though they are limited and preset, the S90 still has some useful manual controls. Much of the S90's features were nice except the limited controls and slow, limited continuous shooting.
  • Pros: Pocketable, Value for money, Excellent movie mode, Excellent battery life, Low noise levels, No red-eye, Flash with average range, USB 2.0
  • Cons: Limited manual controls, Photos a little soft, Slow, limited continuous shooting, Startup time a little slow

  • Conclusion: After nine years of reviewing compact digital cameras it's sometimes surprising I can find anything new to say about them. But such has been the pace of development over the last few years that virtually every new model has at least something unique, surprising or seriously improved to mark it out from the crowd.
  • Pros: Good clean results with excellent color and decent resolution, Virtually no purple fringing, Good dynamic range, Fast focus, generally responsive operation, Easy to use and good handling, Good movie mode (MPEG), Fairly low noise at ISO 400, Excellent battery life (with NiMH), AF illuminator, Good flash exposures, Big, bright screen, Wide range of optional accessories
  • Cons: No aperture or shutter priority mode, Results a little soft, No manual/custom white balance mode, Flash recycle slow unless batteries very fresh, red-eye mode adds long delay, Small amount of chromatic aberration - not visible in normal shots, Accessing some advanced functions via menus is a bit long-winded, Only two aperture settings, Limited macro capabilities, Some focus problems with nearby subjects, will take a picture without focus confirmed, Wide end of the len...

  • Excerpt: Sony's S-line of cameras has returned in 2005 after a nearly four year hiatus. The new S models, the Cyber-shot S40, S60, and S90 are the replacements for some of the P-series models from last year. All three models share the same 4.1 Megapixel CCD. The S40 ($199) is a compact model with a 3X zoom and a small 1.5" LCD display. The S60 ($250) offers a larger body, 2-inch LCD, and support for conversion lenses. The S90 ($300) is just like the S60 except for a 2.5" LCD.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality, Good value, Huge 2.5" LCD is usable in bright outdoor light and in low light too, Very good performance, AF-assist lamp; good low light focusing, Excellent movie mode, Redeye was not a problem, Support for conversion lenses and filters, Excellent battery life; rechargeable batteries included, Live histogram in record mode, USB 2.0 High Speed supported
  • Cons: More manual controls would be nice, Unimpressive burst mode, Memory Sticks cost more than other card formats, Except for the tutorial, bundled software is lousy, Can't swap memory cards while camera is on a tripod

  • Summary: A good camera that does many things very well. It is let down a little by its design and the fact that it costs about the same as many higher resolution models.
  • Pros: Great manual options, nice pictures, big screen
  • Cons: Quite large and bulky

Sony Cybershot DSC S90 Review

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Al met al kunnen we concluderen dat de Sony Cybershot S90 een uitstekende digitale camera is die waar biedt voor zijn geld. De camera is veelzijdig, maar blijft door de gebruiksvriendelijke opzet recht door zee te bedienen en schrikt de beginnende fotograaf dan ook zeker niet af. De camera heeft een uitstekende beeldkwaliteit en vervangt zonder meer een traditionele kleinbeeld camera.

La seule différence entre les deux models est l'écran LCD de 2,5 pouces pour le S90 contre 2 pouces pour le S80, une simple mise à jour du produit.
  • Pros: Ecran 2,5 pouces, Mode manuel
  • Cons: Bruit au dela de 100 ISO, Compression trop forte
