Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H90 has a nice long lens Video Transcript
-Hi there. I'm Josh Goldman, senior editor with CNET, and this is a look at the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H90. Now, the H90s are reasonably compact camera considering it has an ultra wide angle lens with a 16x zoom and a 3-inch LCD on the back. Now, the lens is the same when used on the higher end HX10V and 2011's HX9V. It's a very good lens, but the rest of the H90 is just average. That's mainly because it uses a 16-megapixel CCD sensor instead of the backside illuminated CMOS sensory found on the other two models. Now, that makes a big difference when it comes to low-light photos and performance. The CCD sensor in this just can't compete. If you can afford spending a little extra money, get the HX10V 'cause you get a much better camera. Now, that doesn't mean you should write off the H90 completely, it's good outdoors and daylight and its shooting performance is fine for landscapes and portraits, basically nothing moving. It has some nice features including Sony's Sweep Panorama Mode and a Manual Mode for controlling shutter speed and aperture. And again, it has a nice long lens. I'm Josh Goldman and that's the Sony Cyber-shot H90.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55 is a well-priced compact megazoom capable of taking some excellent photos, just at a leisurely pace.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H70 is a very good basic compact megazoom, if not the best value.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H3 packs a 10x zoom lens and 8 megapixels into a tiny package, but image quality at higher ISOs is a bit lacking.
If you don't mind its extra bulk and narrow lens, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H20 is an otherwise excellent compact megazoom camera.
Sony continues to crank out nice compact cameras with long zoom lenses and the Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V is no exception.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H9 is a great digital camera if you primarily shoot outdoors in daylight, especially sports, children, and animals.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W690 is a decent little 10x zoom camera, but models from Nikon, Panasonic, and even Sony itself offer more for your money.
Advanced amateurs who find dSLRs too bulky will like the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-H5's versatility but lament the noise at higher ISOs.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W290 is an excellent, well-balanced compact camera.
Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-W370 is an inexpensive compact camera with a long lens; however, its shutter lag and low-light photo quality keep it from earning a higher rating.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H90 (Black) Review
The good: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H90 offers a 16x zoom, a high-res 3-inch LCD, and an above-average list of shooting options.
The bad: Like Sony's other CCD sensor-based Cyber-shots, the H90 is slow and has a noticeable drop-off in photo quality above ISO 200.
The bottom line: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H90 is a fine choice for those wanting a compact 16x zoom lens for casual use.
