"pricey but brilliant."

This sleek, thin camera available in Black, Silver and Pink is dynamic in that it is easy to carry around as it is light weight, comes in a range of different colours to define your character and yet has some of the strongest key features witin cameras that are out on the shelves at the moment.

One of it's brilliant Key features is that it has a 12.1 mega pixel camera and it's x4 zoom lense.

However it has to be said that it's main talking point is it's 3inch widescreen ratio screen at the opposide side of the lense dual image and the stabilisation mechanism both optical SteadyShot and an ISO range that extends up to ISO3200 which makes it easier to take pictures when in a shaky scenery such as a bus, train etc.

This camera just gets better thought, not only does it have face recognition on there to try and make that picture that extra bit clearer around peoples faces it also has a smile detector, meaning that if it identifies a smile it will work the same as the face recognition and try and make the picture as clear as possible.

This camera is good and has a good photo editiing package already installed onto the camera, meaning that you can edit pictures before you install them on to your computer!!!you having the ability to crop or sharpen images, blur the picture to add emphasis to the central subject, add a starburst effect or create a smile for the people who aren't already smiling in your picture. 'Painting' onto an image - meaning you can draw devil horn on your kids heads or make your wife look like shes got ten hands. I call this the doodle tool.

teh retail price for this product ranges from about £230-£300 and is a little pricey but if you have the money I would definately reccommend spending this amount on a brillant quality camera!!

Manufacturer's product description

Think thin. The ultra-chic DSC-T90 Cyber-shot digital camera is perfect for stashing in your pocket or a small purse. But the T90 doesn't just impress on the outside. Built into its compact body are powerful features that make taking great pictures a cinch. Not sure which mode to use at sunset or when shooting sporting events? The iAuto mode does the work for you. It automatically adjusts the settings for fantastic results no matter what you're shooting or where you are. There's also Face Detection mode for capturing subtle detail and natural skin tones in faces. And when still photos aren't enough, you can record HD video clips and play it back on the 3 touch screen LCD.
